Jaxxon Mighty Muggs Strikes Back!
This Jaxxon Mighty Mugg will be for sale at San Diego Comiccon at the Lucasfilm booth, and all proceeds will go towards the Make A Wish foundation.
For those of you who don’t know, Jaxxon is a 6 foot tall jack rabbit scoundrel from the Marvel Star Wars comic books, so I felt it would just be awesome to turn him into a Mugg.
The lines are a little wobbly, acrylic isn’t my forte, but I had a lot of fun with him I learned a lot of things that will help me with my TK project helmet, for sure.
Behind the break is how I did it!
First I started with some sketches to get a feel for how I would be drawing a 6 foot rabbit on a 6 inch SD critter.
I primed/sketched the face on the muggs and sculpted some ears out of paper clay – I didn’t actually glue them on until the colour coats were finished (The clay smells like mint. mmm!)
I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Because I was using kinda cheap acrylic, it took about 4 coats of each colour to get a nice, opaque finish.
And here is the final product, in a box I wish I’d had more time to customize this, but it had to go to fed ex.
And there you go! My mighty muggs
