Gambit Custom Action Figure
I have seen some AWESOME Gambit customs here on the Realm but I wanted to come up with a version of my own. But of course my version is heavily influenced by HiddenCloud and Loosecollector's Gambit customs. First off I wanted to find a different head. Gambit is supposed to be a pretty boy/ ladies man so I wanted a face that represented that. After an extensive search I came up with the Birds of prey Angel from the X-men Classics series. Then I had to sculpt his hair and that was a big problem. Every attempt I made looked like crap...literally. It either looked like corn rolls or rolled doggie poo. So I modded Madman's hair and I think it turned out decent. I wanted to use a different trench coat so I tried using the Spirit coat but it was too big and the Nick Fury's coat was just too perfect so I went with that. But with the Fury coat the shoulder's rarely look right. So I used a bigger shoulder joint and I think it looks better. Gambit's costume has always been a bit too bright and colorful for my taste, so I was just going to paint him black and silver. After consulting Pulpyfiction he convinced me to add some of Gambit's trademark colors. So I followed his advice and made his color muted with a worn leather look. I tried metallic blue for his boots but it just didn't look right so I left them silver. Thanks for looking and comments are always appreciated.
