Finished this custom a while back and held off posting it. Just didn't feel it was "hot" or cool enough either way. Then inspiration hit!
Started off with a DCU base and a LOTR Eomer head, reworked with sculpted flames. Additional sculpt work with fire detailing over the figure for some extra texture and contrast. Painted orange, it was nothing special, he just looked like some dude wearing his heartburn on the outside. So decided to remove all the sculpted flames and go with the painted black streaks over his costume as he's drawn in the comics. It's a little more retro looking but fits well with the flame trail, built using apoxie sculpt over a Starfire base. Then replaced the flames with some clear red vinyl cut from a Hot Wheels car accessory. They're semi-transparent and looks much more realistic as flames on his body.
