Chase No Face KidRobot Trikky

I just finished painting this KidRobot 7-inch "Trikky" vinyl figure. It's inspired by Chase No Face, one of my favorite internet-famous animals. Chase was featured on BoingBoing a couple of years ago when I was drawing lots of meme pets. I was fascinated by her story and created a quick portrait. While shopping for art supplies, I came across KidRobot's MUNNYWORLD figures and thought the "Trikky" charracter would make a great Chase No Face custom.

I use Holbein Acryla Gouache paints for most of my painted work and it works great on vinyl figures. I like the consistency of the paint, it thins easily with water, and it dries opaque very quickly. I use whatever brushes I have around, usually a small flat and a couple of round liners. In the past, I've masked off every detail of a custom figure to get really flat shapes, but that's just way too time consuming. This time, I just blocked everything in with a Col-Erase pencil right on the blank figure and started in with brush and paint. Here's a photo of the Trikky in the box and one mid-paint:

The vinyl figure is a one-of-a-kind item. I'm not sure if it's for sale just yet but I'll entertain offers. In the meantime, here are some other Chase related things that I've made.
