By far the most time consuming of the U-Foes to tackle was Vector. Like X-Ray, he was a character who had two dimensional detailing on a three dimensional surface. Only with Vector, it was a LOT more of it, set up in a very specific way. I had to utilize a lot of reference to paint him correctly, and even then there’s some angles that just weren’t available of him, so I had to guess how everything connected. He started as a Marvel Universe Silver Surfer whose nose I removed and base coated in orange. After that, I went on Photoshop and blocked out each layer of his detailing to make it was easy and stress free as possible. Then I just slowly went through and penciled it out and started painting. It took a lot of patience, and a very steady hand, but eventually Vector was completely finished and ready to join his U-Foes brethren in taking down the Marvel heroes!

Wow! Just... Wow! If I didn't know better, I would swear that had to be at least a 6" figure. Your patience is monumental to sit down and paint every minute detail on that custom. Al of your U-Foes are great but this is on another level.

So awesome! that paint job is flawless, absolutely stunning! Vector's crazy look seems incredibly hard to paint on a figure, especially one as small as an MU, outstanding work! The whole set of U-Foes is just epic!

Bravo. That paint job looks really nice. Like a modernist painting on a tiny figure.

Your entire set is fantastic!!! For starters I have a soft spot for clear figures, and I love what you did with using that clear silver surfer as a base for vector! Also I love the display base you made for vapor! The paints and attention to detail on this entire set is outstanding!!! Keep up the great work!!!
