The East Wind Design Team BadgeI was a Winner 613creative fingers top3 double borderI loved Mad Max Fury Road!  I got to see it in 3D with electric reclining chairs.  So awesome!

The moment I saw Chief from The East Wind, I knew that she was going to be her own version of Imperator Furiousa.  I used the overall imagery from the movie when making her, focusing on desert colors, and harsher elements and finishes.
