At first glance, it looks like the paint ran out, but the object was to illustrate the Android as though he were using his phasing ability. The MM base figure was transparent from head to toe, just needed to resculpt the head and chest, replace the boots from an Aquaman figure. Wanted to use feet that had ankle articulation, perfect for flying poses.
The material on the cape was very slippery (like gelatin), a real hand sore to paint the yellow with a fading effect. Airbrushing it just caused the paint to streak and run, making a godawful mess. Tried enamel paint, hoping that would adhere better - it did, but didn't like the results at all - too lumpy. Had to scrub off the enamel and re-start. Needed to prime the surface of the cape with a satin clear coat spray, allow time to dry. Using a combination of hand paint and airbrush to reapply the yellow for a smoother, more convincing fx.
thanks for checking this out!
