The Road Agent
With the base in the photo, which might not be the final one, he stands just about 15" tall. As I've said before...larger figures draw more attention than smaller ones and I want mine to stand out and above any others they might have to compete with. The next step will be the addition of the arms and the mask. I'm going to try something new with the mask by making it out of cloth but treating it in such a way that it will be the most interesting part of this figure. At least I hope so. I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting ways of doing things so if this idea works it has all kinds of possibilities and if it works out I'll tell you how I did it.
One thing I want to mention is that the video production unit will be on standby for a while while I try and get caught up in the shop. There are a lot of empty spaces on the Out West Gallery shelves due to recent sales so if I want to have something to show at Dayton I have to get busy. Also, I've decided to move the Sheepherder project off the burner for the time being. Hopefully, I can get back to it in the not to distant future. Naturally I'll keep you posted with photos and updates on the new figures I'm working on as they progress out of the shop and into the Gallery.
Anyway, I hope you like this new figure. I think he'll definitely be a classic. As always your comments are appreciated. More photos in the Gallery section.
