''Elysium'' DRAKE Custom Figure by Sheridan-J ''Elysium'' DRAKE Custom Figure by Sheridan-J
Hey guys

Here is my next custom. Yet another character from Neill Blomkamps movie "Elysium". This is one of Kruger's South African mercenary buddies; Drake. I decided to go ahead with this character because I think the costume design has a really nice aesthetic to it and is quite unique. There's a lot of hidden little details in there.

Reference:
 Ref by Sheridan-J


My biggest concern was building the vest as accurately as I could. It's similar to Krugers vest, and I planned to build it the same way, but a bit more flat and simplistic. Last time when I made Kruger, my computer was away for repairs (it literally fried), and I wasn't able to print any proper reference pictures or do any planning. It was all freehand (so a little bit wobbly in some places).

This time, I was able to map out the basic shapes and pieces of the vest, print it to scale and use as a template for when I cut the foam pieces out. I found a great reference photo of the vest from an eBay prop/costume sale!

Here is a general WIP of where he started! Lots of work went into building up the little details,  painting and all the weathering.

I am not sure that I get this Sheridan. are you buying these figures and customising them or are you creating them from scratch in clay or such other medium?

Heya. They're scratch built, mostly. I buy the nude doll body online (Like this: i00.i.aliimg.com/wsphoto/v0/73… ) and go from there :XD:

I hired a sculptor to create the specific headsculpt for me, and bits of clothing were bought from 1:6 figure sites (like the camo top, cargo pants, shoes etc.)

The vest and headset were made completely from scratch, and I did a lot of painting and touching up on the shoes, knee pads, elbow pads and stuff :D
