Usually I kinda relish diving right in and hacking and slashing the toys I\’m asked to customize. But I started this piece just days after I had heard about the slight controversy regarding Jason Freeny\’s Coarse Jaw. If you had not heard about it I\’ll sum up briefly. The client who commissioned the work was not happy when he received the piece and discovered scuff makes around the non-customized sections of the toy. With that on my mind I didn\’t dive in with as much gusto as I usually do. Fortunately for me though, my style is one that completely remakes the toy and its surface so everything the client see is intentional. Well, most everything, there are happy accidents.
Anyways, take a look at some of the slashing I had to do and ask yourself if as a client you would be comfortable seeing me hack your very expensive coarse toy like so.
I am currently working on another Coarse Jaw and will be posting WIP pics all throughout the process. I\’ll be posting those pics soon.
