SURF’S UP

Cowabunga dudes!

Fans of Batman with Adam West and Burt Ward may be familiar with the concept behind this shot as it is one inspired by the Surf’s Up episode in Season 3. In that episode, Joker played by Cesar Romero kidnap a local surf doggy, hook him up to an electronic whatitsthingie, and steal all his surf knowledge/skills and youth. If that makes sense to you, then you love the 60s Batman show as much as I do.

These figures are made by figurestoycompany and look perfect for a little scene recreation. I went heavily ACBA here, using blue cellophane, cotton balls, and folded up towel to create the waves and foam; a sunset background created using pastel chalks and blue poster board; and added water spray by pouring water in front of the scene onto plastic to achieve that bouncy light. The octagon shapes are a by product of using a flash to light up the water drops.

Short of shark repellent this one came out pretty well.
