Yakuza Munny Details by Cacodaemonia Yakuza Munny Details by Cacodaemonia
Download for full-size image.

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. :noes: 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. :worship: You can also find the book here.

Photos by ~Nikkuman, who also built an awesome box in which to take the photos. :heart:

Available for purchase on Etsy.

My first I got as a present on my 18th birthday, then got my second when I was 21 or so. They're both quite small and all in black ink, so I didn't have to spend much on them.

A friend of mine promised to do it for me and he's a really good tattoo artist. The only thing holding me back is my family. My dad was like, 'ARe you out of your mind?!' The same goes for the rest of the clan (except the younger generation.) hehehe.

So yeah. I'm 31 sans tattoo. :sniff:

Hehe, well, as long as you don't get anything HUGE, or, like, on your forehead, they're pretty easy to overlook. ;)

You're giving me ideas. :D

I wanted Kakashi's anbu tattoo but if it's on my bicep it's gonna be really easy to spot since I'm always in t-shirts or tanks. (It's really hot here! :O_o:)

I also wanted Renji's back tattoo. Yep the entire thing reduced to about 3 or 4in square at the back of my waist... Gah! I want a tattoo! :sniff:

I don't know what the anbu one looks like. Is it on his arm?

I loooove Munny's. I actually tried to make something similar once with super sculpey...didn't work out too well though.

Actually, what I've really wanted to get my hands on are some of the blank matryoshka dolls. I think those would be really fun to paint.

Cacodaemonia Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Haha, did it cave in or something? Maybe explode in the oven? XD

Ooooh, yeah, the matryoshka dolls would be really interesting to paint. You'd have to figure out how to simplify the details more and more as they get smaller. I bet it would be a great challenge. :)

It didn't explode, but the head did keep falling off. So I guess it was stupid of me to try and make it in two sections.

They sell blank ones on Amazon and some other places...I think I might buy some tonight.

If I could make it look 1/1000 as cool as Audrey Kawasaki's kokeshi doll I'd be in heaven.

Haha, you could turn him into the Headless Horseman or something. ;P

Oooh, yeah, I've seen that kokeshi doll! It's so gorgeous. I can't imagine painting that precisely. O__o

He won't glow in the dark due to the layers of Gesso, but he's wicked cool even if he doesn't have glow-n-the-dark skin anymore.

Very, Very cool. Nice work, but can he still glow in the dark?
Reply
:iconcacodaemonia:
Cacodaemonia Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Nope, it's all covered up by the Gesso. The glow in the dark color is a sickly green, and I didn't want that messing with the colors. Plus, I needed the Gesso to make the markers adhere to the surface.
