Based on Jim Lee's cover art to Deathblow #6, this is the first custom action figure I've completed, and it's one I've wanted to do for years. Ever since McFarlane's Wetworks line came out I thought it'd be awesome to have other Wildstorm Universe characters in that scale. The line really captured Whilce Portacio's art style and the 90's Wildstorm look. So while this isn't exactly Jim Lee's Deathblow, it's in the same spirit and displays nicely with the existing Wetworks Dane figure.
This was a good first custom to dive into because it wasn't too complex. The vest and belt were too small so they were cut to size and glued on (along with the signature flowing bandana strings), and the trenchcoat hides any areas they don't cover. Other than that it was a full repaint and I got kind of creative with the color scheme due to the sepia style of the original art. My first instinct was to go with Deathblow's standard all green outfit, but it didn't mesh well with the gray trenchcoat, so I went with the brown/khaki scheme and I think it's a good fit. It feels good to finally have this first custom finished, thanks for checking it out!
