Jaxxon Mighty Muggs Strikes Back!

I was honoured to be asked to participate in the ‘Empire Muggs Back’ charity fundraiser for Lucasfilm.

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.

Mighty Muggs Back

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.

sketches

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!)

Step 1 - Sketch

Step 2 - Ears!

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.

Step 3 - First coat of GreenStep 4 - Many coats laterStep 5 - Block colours done!
Almost done! /><img class=

Step 8 - A tail!

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.
