The final picture of the Daily run!
For the closure I pulled something special out of the magic hat:
I present you the "Copper Watusi Froggy" wrist Gatling gun!
This is a project which took about two years (on and off) to finally get done.
Originaly I simply wanted to do a Froggy wrist gun in copper instead of the usual brass.
However, while doing some ornamentals in punching technique, they suddenly reminded me of the scar-tattoo the Watusi prince, rightful heir to the throne, wore, in that old Quatermain movie from 1950 with Stewart Granger (a movie I think fondly of).
From there I started to research the Watusi and wanted to tribalize the Froggy wrist gatling gun in a Watusi/African theme:
- I swapped the brown leather bracer with a Zebra hide replica (high quality printed cowhide from Argentina)
- added two stylized cobra ornaments on the neck
- added a fur crown to the head like many Watusi warrior (also the famous dancers) used to wear (I pressume in line with portraying a lion and gaining his strength for battle)
- and the box got Zebrastripes as well, which I did in pokerwork technique
Of course I used genuine Swarovski gems for the eyes as usual. Fitting to the copper in beautiful green emerald.
I'm very happy, that the Watusi Froggy is finally done and am very pleased with the outcome.
