Shit Flingers character ref splash.

I was asked by Jimmy Furlong if I could draw a piece that would show my interpretation of his characters The Shit Flingers. First of pencils and then after the ok from Jimmy himself I can ink and colour. Well here are the pencils. I’m assuming it’s ok to post it here seeing as Jimmy posted it on social media. I’ll soon find out.

Scout Trooper Helmet Mod

Right, I know it’s not comic art but it was something I really wanted to do. I couldn’t really afford to buy a top quality Scout Trooper helmet and they are quite hard to get hold of. So I got a Rubies. These are renowned as being of poor shape and quality. I then modified the helmet as best I could.

This is what it started like. Bad I know.

Then I removed the lenses, snout detail and ear detail and applied a basic reshape.

Then added steel rods to hold it in shape, sanded the whole thing and sprayed it with primer ready for spraying.

Then I spayed it with several coats of gloss white.

Next I added the padding and lining with help from my wife.

Next I finished it with details such as ear mesh, lenses, snout detail and decals.

Comparisons from old to new and compared to the movie helmet.
