Custom #:13846

So ... after 02 months made and destroyed attempts, I finally concluded my Storm Classic based John Byrne's design era.

The biggest problem I found was how to do a cover. It was almost 45 days thinking and trying varies alternatives. I was getting anxious because I never thought it was so complicated. But finally the result left me very satisfied.

RECIPE:
Body/head: Mystica ML (I just sanding the chin to give a visual as triangular designs of John Byrne);

Hair: Sculpted in Epoxy (Sculpted part by part, with details of each hair and lots of patience);

Clothing / Boots / Tiara: sculpted in epoxy (Using cuttings modeling for biscuit, water sandpaper 240 and the rest of patience: D);

Cover: Fabric of umbrellas (It was the longest of all to construct the mold, think about the material, as paint (it was not easy: (), make the joints and fixing the ends to not cut the wiring);

Jewelry: plastic caps to protect amoxilin (Other medicine can also: D) painted with red ink for the inside;

Painting: I use vinyl ink to body and hair I use acrylic ink, both applied with a brush.


I would like listen your opinion or suggestions for improvement. Thanks and sorry my english.

AMAZING, Astonishing Storm man, really lovin the classic look. I would spray a little bit of dullcoatte, but other than that, just perfect.

Excellent! I only wish Toy Biz/Hasbro would make the original, and best, version of Storm.

WOW! That hair is pretty darn impressive! Is it an original sculpt or a part? If you sculpted it really nice work! Would love to know how you got it to stand up and swirl. Nice us of the Mystique body!

WOW!, you "just" feel satisified with this. I don't know from the actual figure, but from your pictures this perfect. From the hair, to the scale, to the cape, to the paint job this is a great custom, you should be proud.
