Sketchbot Custom: The Navigator
The Navigator started life as a blank Sketchbot vinyl toy, i cut off his head (eep!) and painted his body with acrylic paint before sealing with lacquer. To really make the paint job pop i used a metallic flake in the pink-coloured parts before giving him a thick full gloss coat all over. The Navigator himself is a tiny plush in his own right, i sculpted his face from sculpey, painted with acrylic paint and pastels and sealed with matte lacquer. His body, including his ears, has a tiny metal armature inside to let him keep his pose. All finished off with a heart shaped nose and teeny eyepatch.
The Navigator is my piece for Sketchbot 2. Munky King LA. November 19th. 7:00pm – 10:00pm Munky King, 7308 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA.
