The Goon!
« on: April 24, 2015, 02:17:52 AM »
I've painted a couple of prototypes for Dark Horse Comics' new Goon figure.  The sculpt is by my buddy Sean McNally and is a real treat.   The figure in these photos is touring With Dark Horse's comic con booth.    The second fig has gone off to China as a master fro mass production.  Cheers!

That is fantastic work!  Me and the boys are in awe of your awesome painting skills!  Do you know when this figure is released, and how much it will be?

Many thanks, guys!   I had a lot of fun with these figs, and saw one on display at San Diego ComicCon a few weeks ago.  The painted fig should be available in September!
