Storm Shadow Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:42687  
Name:Storm Shadow
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:libog  
Date Added:September 12, 2012
Base Figure:Sentry
Height:6.00 inches
Base figure sentry.

*I removed cape.
*I sculpted head, chest, throwing stars, sword handle, legs, feet.
*I used rubber bands for belt and sash.
*I placed earth magnets in hands to hold weapons better.
*I primed white areas with black first. I then put a gazillion layers of white. I then washed a blackish gray on top of the white. I then dry brushed more white on. Painted black the sword handle, sash, and belt. I painted throwing stars, sash clip, and sword guard silver.
*I decalled the cobra and arashikage symbols on.
*The sword was made from hair clip and apoxy.
*Throwing stars are removable from waste.

I hope you like it. The white was a real pain in the butt. I should have bought a white primer I guess. Any suggestions are always welcomed.

This is an amazing figure!! You did an excellent job on the very talkative ninja! I understand yellow and white are the worst colors to paint! Its best to not use black as a base I usually go with flesh or white as the base color then use a matte or flat white since shiny white is thinner. Anymoo thats my advice.

thanks bro, and thank you for the advice. Initially I thought I was just going to dry brush on the white over the black so that I could have some better texture, but I ended up have to gob on the white.

I'm a sis actually. No problem because I did the same thing as they say you live and learn.
