X-Ray was a bit tough to tackle, because his design was basically two-dimensional detailing on a three dimensional body. Easy enough to draw on paper, but not so easy to replicate onto an action figure. But I gave it a go. He started out as a clear Marvel Universe Silver Surfer whose nose I removed, and then covered him in clear purple. Then I painted the center of his chest and back white and had it fade out from there, almost like a starburst, fading into the purple. I added the splotchy black dots in the center of his torso on both sides, and painted the black lines that circle it all over his body. It’s hard to see the lines normally, but the reason I chose a clear Silver Surfer is because when you hold X-Ray up to a light, it shines through and you can see all the detail on his body. It was a risky move, but I think it paid off.

Wow! Spectacular job on your U-Foes my good man! When I was knee high to a grasshopper I used to obsessively pour over each and every edition of "The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe". My 2 favorite types of entries to read were those devoted to the high concept cosmic entities like Eternity, Ego and Galactus and those devoted to the weird and wonderful semi-obscure heroes & villains. Of the latter, the U-Foes were some of my favorites and you sir have done them justice. I wish more customizers would tackle those characters that will likely never see an official action figure be made of them. So well done sir.
