The Making of "Jack" Part 5

On March 7th, 2012, Fully Visual and I will be releasing a new bronze sculpture of "Jack".
Inspired by my painting "Jacked" and the mythological "Jackalope", this sculpture attempts to blend my character design with the classic taxidermic presentation of the Jackalope (stuffed and mounted on a plaque).
Till its release, I'll be regularly presenting images of Fully Visual's process for casting the bronze.

NOTE: Due to the response we've experienced for "Jack", we decided to increase the production number from 7 pieces to final total of 10.

After the metal is cast and cooled the molds are cracked off and cleaned up. Jack was comprised of four individual pieces: the Rabbit, the Left Antler, the Right Antler, and the Plaque. After the pieces are cleaned each of the components are welded together. Finally the sculpture is finished with a patina for. Jack was finished with a classic bronze style patina.
