Shroud is a lesser known Marvel character, but has a very cool look to him that I thought would translate well into an action figure. He’s made using the body of a Marvel Legends Black Panther, the cape from a Spawn figure, the hood from a Marvel Legends Moonknight, and the head from a Legendary Comic Book Heroes Judge Dredd.

I removed Black Panther’s belt and sculpted around his waist to fill in the holes. I also sculpted over his forearms, shins, and boot toes to cover up the Black Panther detailing in the suit, and clipped all his claws off. I used one of my Dremel grinding bits to get the same texture that the figure already had to blend it in. The cape was dry brushed a light purple, almost lavender color and then attached to the figure. I used Aves Apoxie Sculpt to make a collar for him to help sell the illusion that the hood and cape were one piece.

For the head, I sculpted the visor over Judge Dredd’s head, painted it, and then glued on the Moonknight hood and painted it the same purple as the cape, and added the spider insignia Shroud wears on the hood. After painting the entire body black and covering up the purple dry brushing the Black Panther had before, Shroud was ready for action!

Sometimes, all you need is an inspired, ingenious idea and dedication to produce such impressive results.
Great job brother!

Pretty sure that cape is from the Ser. 17 Medieval Spawn, and it's blended into the Moon KNight cowl seamlessly. Great stuff!

Ah. I do believe you're right. I couldn't remember specifically where it came from. Thanks!

Great job on one of my favorite characters as a kid. I absolutely love it. I always loved him and Cloak from Coak & Dagger. The Darkness dimension related heroes always appealed to me for some reason. Either way, outstanding work.

that cape is so awesome

Yeah, I think the cape is what helps sell it ha ha. And I personally think the head choice was pretty good. The Judge Dredd head has that same expression much of the comic art has.

Masterfully done on the choice of paints, and the drybrushing brings a definite dark presence overall. Swish!
