    Custom Tequila by Cat Atomic

    Vinyl Toy Artist Cat Atomic created a custom Muttpop Tequila for Suburban Vinyl's custom Tequila show, being held during NYCC 2015. Cat Atomic spent quite a bit of time sculpting some additional features on the Tequila figure, many of the WIP shots can be seen on Cat Atomic's Instagram Page. The skull face is a bit of a signature feature used by Cat Atomic on most of his customs. Usually sticking to a 3D looking painted feature, Cat Atomic took it one step further and decided to sculpt out some of the facial features he usually paints, such as the nasal area and eyebrows. Doing this actually allowed Cat Atomic to create even more depth and shading, but it doesn't look like he knew exactly how to approach the sculpted features which are normally painted, opting to essentially overlay the paint right onto the clean sculpt. Hopefully, Cat Atomic continues with sculpting the facial features of his pieces and begins to see where he can add more depth and pop, now that some features already exist. It may even be great to see if Cat Atomic cut more features into the facial sculpt, instead of having to paint the lines around the eyes. Also, adding a bit more contrast in color should go a long way in making certain parts of the figure pop and standout. Overall, the piece is a wonderful representation of Cat Atomic's work. Priced at $220, this custom Tequila will be available at the Suburban Vinyl booth #208 during NYCC 2015, Oct 8-11th.
