This is basically a NECA Engineer in Pressure Suit repaint. The basic figure from the factory is very white and plain. I wanted my version to look more movie accurate. I painted his suit by starting with a midnight base (very dark blue, almost black), then dry brushing with a porcelain blue (powder blue), then washing it with metallic yellow green, followed by a dark metallic gunmetal grey wash, finished off with a dry brush of porcelain blue mixed with pearl white. Finished it off by using the reference photos to see what areas to use a black wash on, such as the center of his chest, the circles, shoulders, etc... The face and hands were painted with a really light purple, almost white, and then washed over with a rose pink color around the features of his face, cheek bones, eye sockets, lips, etc...then took the light purple and dry brushed over the rose and blended it in, giving it that realistic feel. Did the same thing on the hands. The sculpt is awesome and you can't appreciate it unless you paint it up better than NECA's version. I also applied a layer of super glue on the top of the neck to prevent the head from rubbing the paint off, since his joints are very tight.
