From The Vault - Bakugan Try Out 2010

I didn't have to dig back into the vault too far to find this piece. Honestly, I thought I'd already posted it on the blog but, when I was trying to find this piece on the blog to show a friend, I realized I never put it up.

I probably held back because I did this piece as a try-out for some sort of project for the people who produce Bakugan. But, given that that was about six months ago and I haven't heard a thing since I'm going to safely say I probably didn't get the job.

Which is too bad. It was such a fun project to do that I actually went above and beyond what they asked and not only did the pair of characters in an action pose but also did a second piece featuring head shots of both of them. So, while I think I did a good job and had a great time doing it, I never heard anything back from my contact at Bakugan.

Ah well. It was a fun idea while it lasted and, after doing years of kids playing sports, it was fun to do something a little more sci-fi related.

Maybe next time.

Hope you're feeling better!

Never seen this piece, LOVE it. I can't think of too much monochromatic stuff I've seen from you, the robot guy or whatever in particular looks really cool.

Thanks, Robbo. I'm getting there in terms of health.

Glad you like this piece. Making the big monster looked like he hopped off of a video screen was really fun to do. I had to come up with some new ideas of how to make it look like he was glowing from within.

I'm hoping it worked. Not enough to get the job, but I hope the technique worked :)
