By airmail. That's how Ultron Mk. 2 finally went across the sea to his commissioner. After I said I was finished with him, I emailed the customer to show him some photos.
You can see from the photos below that I just took quick shots of the piece on my worktop. Well that didn't seem to go down well and the customer suggested touching up some of the paintwork and adding a couple of more details. I did what he requested after grumping about it for a while and when I next showed him the piece I made certain to take more time over the photos.
He seemed delighted and I think I made the new Ultron better than the original in some respects.
I just have to wait and see what he thinks when he receives it in person.
Last night I received my first commission. I'm not going to reveal how much it was worth, but it's for a reproduction of my Ultron.
I've visited other customiser's websites and if they accept customs they always tend to have the disclaimer that they do not make reproductions. Most just say that they find it tedious to do the same work again.
We'll see how I get on, but let's just say that I think I'd do pretty much anything for the right price.
One of our Japanese friends sent us a couple of Spider-man figures at Christmas. They were really cool, and had this kind of robotic look to them. I decided to make one of these figures into Ultron... or Great Ultron as he insists on being called.
