My First Release Ever... Introducing WattBoy! NOW ON SALE!

Post  chiprender on Sun Mar 04, 2012 12:46 am

Many, many thanks to fellow C&D'er Adam Saul for making a long-term dream reality. Today he produced a limited edition (50) hand screen-print run of my first character, Wattboy...he just sent me this photo of the run and I am SUPER stoked. I am planning to release these for sale in about a week, so stay tuned...I'll announce it here first as this has been the best community I've ever had the pleasure of belonging to and I wouldn't have it any other way. Adam...you're the bomb! Very Happy Very Happy

NOTE: I had to really resist posting this in awesome shit. Twisted Evil

I actually did him in 3D many years ago, and had him stereo-lithographed and painted up (he met an untimely demise).
Here is a render I did of him (I used Lightwave)...perhaps I need to rethink releasing him. Question
