So I think the original figure was, quite possibly, the worst marvel figure ever made. The paint job on her face was lazy, simple, and off center. I tried touching up her features a few times, and then came to the decision to just paint over the whole darn thing. I repainted her face and neck, then did her eyebrows, eyes, and lips by hand. Also before putting the hair back on the figure, I noticed it was a very matte brown, so I repainted her hair a deep brownish red, and gave her some red highlights. All in all, I think she now actually looks like Famke Janssen, and I'm happy to have her on display instead of hiding her in the back.

haha, you're right! That was one of my problems just trying to touch up the paint. No matter what I did she still looked like cross-eyes on botox, lol. Hense my decision to cover it all and start from scratch

Way better. Makes you think there's a decent sculpt in there - you just gotta paint it decent. You painted it great and really brought out the pretty in there. Great work!

Thanks... I think once I get a little more confident I'll redo her outfit with some real fabric.
