Kyle's Gungrave Brandon Heat (Millenia Suit), D.O.B. 07/20/07

So after Gee Jay hooked me up with the Gungrave series on DVD I was HOOKED. I'm a huge anime fan and this show is my new favorite series (well... Maybe a tie with Trigun) So what do I do when I like something? I MAKE A CUSTOM OF THEM. The main character of the show is a bad azz names Brandon heat. He apperes to have 4 versions of him. Young Street Thug Brandon, Millenia Newbie Brandon, Millenia Executive Brandon, and last but not least BEYONND THE GRAVE (AKA GRAVE). This is a combination or both Noob and Executive Brandon (cause he never whore the glasses while a noob or the bangs.. but one he was an executive he didn't have the pony tail)

I did some exerimenting with suit parts to come up with the best solution and I think its my farite suit ever see recipe for the combo I used.

And since I'm a Completest when it come to figures for my collection expect to see the rest of the cast soon.

RECIPE:
~ ML Prof X Base with Jacket and hands removed
~ Jacket and hands from DCSH Clark Kent as well as reetooled glasses
~ The head is a highly altered SOTA Ken Angry head. I sculpted the bangs and removed the pretty bow. I then wrapped the pony tail part in thread. I Basically resculpted the whole face with aves apoxie sculpt. I had to make the chin pointy as well as the nose. As usual the hardest part was painting those Anime Eyes.
~ full repaint with Vellejo GC and gave him a Cold Grey light drybrush.

THANKS... I'm glad you actually know the character, and assuming from your screen name I'm sure we have the same taste in Anime.
I have been busting my bum trying to find that BTgrave figure. I can't find one on a website KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED for me.. I will totally pay the price.
Up next is Bunji... he is about 80% done.

Awesome figure! I wish I had some of those jackets, because it looks sooo good! Isn't there some whay to get it cast, by Black Arachnis for example using the stuff he uses for casting hair.
I also love the use of Ken's head. I can't remember seeing it on any specific custom and that's always good!
edit: the updated glasses are superb!
