Beyond Weathertop: The Trails of an Intern
I try to impress and work hard. So I volunteered to build a really cool background for the Weathertop 8 pack exclusive. Some thing grand, majestic even.
Here we see myself and Ice Cat, the Hoth Wampa Stompa, an out of work Mexican wrestler. Labor is cheaper south of the border so I hired him for the weekend.
Like any ambitious project, we needed beer and reference. After downing several south paw and watching the Weathertop sequence frame by frame ninety times, we were ready to get started.
Ice Cat started wittling down the polystrene into the shapes we jotted down. Shout out to my boys at Plan B Toys! Tony, Jay, Chris Represent!
After the crude shape is formed and smoothed with south paw and honey mustard pretzel bites, it's covered in a 2/1 glue water mix and doused with craft sand. I swear I don't do sand art, I just had some lying around. On that note, come see me at the Berlin Fair August 12-16 and make your mom a nice sand bong.
Meanwhile, I was busy painting Ringwraiths. We only had one paint prototype and a bunch of manufacturing tests so it was up to me to break out the Games Workshop colours and try to match the paint test.
Four of them are done by me , only one is from the factory. Can you guess which one?
With the sand dry I go outside in the dark and fish around for moss and sticks and such to add. I end up using horse hair and selling the rest of the beast to the factory.
Okay looks pretty good. Hey dude if you're getting up, grab me another Delicious Refreshing South Paw the right kinda beer for Americans.
Looks good the next day when I photograph it at work. Snazzy stuff.
Add a little Photoshop and Howwwwwzaahhh, good to sell. I'll be napping if you need me.
