Reveal of J?RYU “F.A.D.” customised 20″ kidrobot Dunny for the DTA Dunny Show at the Clutter Gallery in New York. This piece was hand sculpted with epoxy/polymer clay on top of a 20″ vinyl #kidrobot platform and painted with acrylics. Seeing J?RYU work in progress shots via his Instagram was marvellous and actually made me love it even more. look at the precision and the amount of time he has taken to make this masterpiece and also shows how much of a perfectionist he is.
Faces take me forever so it’ll probably be another 6 hrs till I am happy with it. Laid out some base layers where the filigree will be going to keep my symmetry as well as use up extra bits of magic sculpt that are curing for bulk. Long days ahead but enjoying the process as always
The initial design was actually for a production “Army Of Snipers” Kidrobot Dunny Series but sadly with all the changes at Kidrobot the design along with the whole series will not go into production (fingers crossed maybe in the future something will happen and make the whole series come to life)
J?RYU not letting anything get past him had the opportunity to fulfil the fans wishes and stepped up to bring you all the 20″ F.A.D Dunny for the DTADunny Show.
Below are some of his WIP shots of the process from his Instagram.

“Started on the long process of doing filigree. I am right hand dominant so I started on the left hand side first to establish a leading reference half for me to use as a guide when I do the right side. That way it’s easier to create as much symmetry as possible without my hand blocking off my work than if I had initially started on my dominant side. I lay out the main curves wirhout worrying too much about hard bevels. The important thing I am going for is to lay down my shapes first with a focus on ensuring that the heights and the planes are logical, rising up and tapering accordingly. I will leave the hard edges and evening of planes for the sanding and filling stage later. The horn still needs to be refined with detailing and more consistent ridging.“
The copper/bronze effect highlights all the features and detail not letting any of that sculpt get lost and highlighted. I am sure seeing this in person will look even better then it already is in the photos. Any one got a spare flight ticket for me to go to the show?
