Merlyn (DC Universe) Custom Action Figure
I started with a DCUC Shark figure and removed all the sharkness from it. Then I sculpted on the boots, forearm ribbing, goatee and chest straps using Aves. Next I added the thigh straps using zip strips and cast 2 quivers for the legs using a vintage Hawkeye quiver and used a miscast of an Artemis quiver for the arrows. I used 2 Artemis quivers and mounted them on a torso bracket harvested from a Spiderman to make his quiver set up. Then took a belt from a Commander Rogers and cut it down to fit with his leg quivers. Lastly I swapped out the left hand for one from an AoA Weapon X so that it could grasp the bow string. Not sure where the bow is from, but the arrow is from a Young Justice Artemis.
Paints were pretty straight forward. Gloss black on the whole with flat black on the boots, gloves and quivers. Then the detailing was done in a slightly bluish grey and a little silver for the belt details.
