Right now I am deeply immersed in trying to kick out a 13 page full color promotional comic book that is to be given away as a promo item for the movie “Super Capers”. I did a bunch of illustration work for the film, which will appear during the opening credits and in a flashback scene near the beginning of the movie. The movie will debut in select theaters on March 20th, and if sells a predetermined number of tickets it will get picked up by a major distributor (there is a deal in place) and will be shown in about 2000 theaters this summer. I actually have a credit in the opening credits, complete with a caricature of me (sort of) at the drawing board.
I just got a package with some of the other promotional items for the film, and one was a figurine of the main character “Ed Gruberman” as played by actor Justin Whalin (Jimmy Olsen in “Lois and Clark”). It was sculpted and produced based on a “turnaround” I did of the character. Here’s the partial turnaround:
Here’s the figurine. It’s very small at only about four inches tall including base.
More pics of the figure after the jump:
It’s always interesting to see something try and make the jump from 2-D drawing to 3-D sculpture. I thought they did a pretty good job with this, especially considering how small the sculpt must have been.
