This is my first full-size Munny
! The mini-Munnies in my gallery are all 4" tall, but this guy is 7".
He's made of vinyl, and is actually glow in the dark underneath several layers of Gesso, but he doesn't glow anymore.
I painted the lines of the tattoos in black acrylic paint, then colored the tattoos with Neopiko Deleter Markers. I wasn't sure how they would work on the vinyl and Gesso, but they came out just like I wanted. I was even able to blend them, as long as I didn't go over one area too much. This Munny took me 13-15 hours to complete. I have another mini-Munny that's just about done, too, but he needs to be glazed first.EDIT:
I completely forgot to mention this.
I used designs and motifs from the photo book, 藍像 らんしょう (Japanese Tattooing: Ranshou), by 須藤 昌人 (Sudou Masato)
. It's a really brilliant book, and I truly admire all the work that went into it. Convincing a bunch of yakuza to do photoshoots naked is probably no small feet.
