The figure is of course a 28mm Foundry Street violence figure on a resin base. As Curt did say he liked the bases on a previous AHPC entry of mine it just made sense to put this on a base as well. By doing so I was able to raise the front wheels and let the skate board do a wheelie. But If I lifted the front too far the figure really did look awkward and unnatural as to get the pose right I would NEED to re-sculpt the front leg. As I am no sculptor re- sculpting the legs was not on my to do list so it is a shallow wheelie. But It looks good enough but from the photos you will just have to take my word for it.
Dark blue jeans white trainers with red laces and a green and black sack on the back. Typically nothing matches or looks good and is all peer pressure lead. NO there is no Nike swoosh on the trainers I just know someone will ask!
Are Youths risk takers? That is for you to judge. All I can say is I did have bags of confidence in my actions and abilities and almost no thought of my own personal safety or vulnerability. Yes I could have done a cowboy playing cards or a dozen other risk takers yet for me the whole thing did just seem to be an expression of unthinking youth.
Hope you Like it Curt it is in the post on Friday. So should be with you in a week or two I should think. I will put in a couple of extras just for you Curt, nothing so exciting but things I know you would like and have commented on in this challenge. Best wishes Clint
Our first piece of Curtgeld for today (there's another in the queue) and what a great interpretation of the theme.
The orange hoodie is really vibrant - great work Clint. As for all Curtgeld, this will give you 20 points.
