Hello friends,
Here is my upgraded version of the bust “Lock & Load” by Robot Rocket. I already present this project a few months ago, but since then, I improved it a bit.
I was not fully happy with the previous version, so I re-painted the face, and I added a red mask and a few teardrops. I really believe that give her more personality and presence. That pushes a bit the atmosphere. She is born on the year of the Tiger (our current year in Chinese calendar), hence her tattoo. She is as deadly as a snake, hence her call sign and Cobra tattoo. She is in what will be the Foreign Legion in a distant future (hence her other tattoo). And she brings death! The figure 4 in Asia is the symbol of Death, hence her talisman and lucky number: 4!
I was a great fun to identify what was missing and could be improved, and I enjoyed hugely painting these further steps!
I hope you like it!!

    Ils sont vraiment superbes ces tatouages.
    Tu as laissé le bandeau rouge sur les yeux à ce que je vois. Tu as bien fait, ca donne plus de “peps” à la pièce.
    Bravo, j’aime beaucoup. Or

      Merci, oui je pense que le bandeau rouge (ou equivalent) manquait dans la version precedente. Avec les larmes en plus, ca apporte une touche de vie et une histoire…

    Bravo François, vraiment une très jolie pièce. Vue sur le forum déjà, si je ne m’abuse. Vote or, sans contestes.

    • Francois "Frado" Daugny

      Merci Eric,
      oui, je l’ai mise en meme temps sur le forum. C’est une version retravaillee (reprise du visage et du fusil surtout), dons la piece peut sembler familliere aux habitues du forum! Merci pour ton vote.

    A really good take on a great bust. I really like the freehand tattoos and the work that’s gone into making all the textures feel different and real. Great job - gold

  • Eamon Connerty

    Love the tattoos and legion patch! Gold!

    • Francois "Frado" Daugny

      Thank you Eamon, It was my very original idea to place her in a future version of the French Foreign Legion, all the rest of the color and concept came from that starting point. I am glad you like her.
