I'm a big fan of the Warriors Three,and I wish they had had a more prominent and important role in the Thor Movie,and hopefully they will have in Thor:The Dark World.The figures of these characters were a little harder to find than the core figures,but they were more readily available than some.The paint apps on Fandral left something to be desired(okay,it sucked!)and I couldn't look at that face any more!So,out came the paint brush,and I had to do something about that belt!Here's the end result!
I've learned that customizing is full of "happy accidents"!Sometimes it's best to go along with them and see where they take you!Most,if not all,of my customs evolve as I'm working on them,and may have differences from the source material,so my work reflects my interpretation of the characters.So,please remember,the figure may not look 100% like the comic or movie version,but I always do my best to capture the essence of the character.
Quite often I see other customizers figures and I'm in awe of their work and have to make one of my own!In those cases,I hope the original customizer realizes that imitation is the ultimate form of flattery,and I really am paying them a very sincere compliment.In cases where I know who the original customizer is,I will always give credit where it is due.
I welcome all comments and critiques of my work,and will give any additional details of my recipes if anyone would like to make a similar figure of their own.Thanks for taking the time to check out my creations,I hope that my customs inspire others to give it a try themselves,it is a fun,if somewhat time consuming,little hobby we have!
The number one tool in my customizing tool chest?PATIENCE!
