A challenge for the Aussies.

Post by JBM on Sat Apr 23, 2011 7:00 am

I've got a choice on my board that says "your choice". Kids only choose it occasionally and its usually something easy but if I can't do it I'm not shy to say so. So today I got asked for Ned Kelly. He had a picture so I copied it and I think I did ok. I'll put my pic up when I charge my camera. But I thought this about an Aussie inspired thread cause there are so many Australians on here now. So. Ned Kelly. What would you draw?

WOW! Thats so cool! I would probably go with the metal sheets/robot type base leaving the slit for the eyes (of course!) When I think of dear ol' Ned its all about the armour isn't it??
Sydney Nolans Ned springs to mind...

Ok so here is what I did for him and he was stoked. I think it is ok for on the spot with kids in line waiting, but on analysis I think that I should have left the eyes unpainted with the slit around them in black and could've even written Ned at the bottom of the helmet in kinda bullet holes/black robot dot kinda things..just to help other people looking at it with the "what is it?" test.



Gotta love his originality though!

I think you nailed it! Precisley what I was thinking and I love that you added a bullet hole!!
I had thought the slit for the eyes to be narrower and perhaps I would use my kryolan Bronze. What did they (kelly gang) make the armour out of?
This reminds me too of a party I did where I painted the kids into character. This kid in relativley plain clothes sits and I asked him what he was and he says: I want to be a murderer! (yikes!) So I painted the Jekyll half face design and he was wrapped!
