Boothooligan's Mega WIP Thread....

Posted in Custom Workstation

So, while toiling away on my Golden Oldies contest entry, I decided to work on a 'easier' side project to take a break. We all know how those turn out

Seriously though, this has been a lot of fun, got most of it done in just a few hours. I'll probably be finishing & posting it in the showcase tonight, but here's the WIP for now:

ML Hulk, disassembled and sanded down where needed

Despero BAF head, primed

Despero stole Maestro's shoes!!

Checking proportions. I wanted to get that 'Virtue and Vice' Carlos pacheco kinda look. The DCUC Despero BAF was WAY too slender. He needs to be HUGE, and TERRIFYING!

Dark reddish purple primer, mixed myself.

Added a little 'Gore Red' from Citadel...

Face shot

Dry brushed with some purple, pink and black for detail & shadow



Starting the pants, painted his feet.

I"m working on the cape, boots, belt and clasps as we speak. This Despero will sport a look that is very close to his Brave and the Bold appearance, but much, much more horrfying!!

Hope you like, let me know what you think!

That looks fantastic and I agree that this version is much more menacing looking.

Nice paint. I love how I'm always sceptical if I should dry brush my customs. It's silly, because no matter how nice the base color looks, more layers and shading always look better.
