My second Astonishing X-Men repaint. As I said with my Wolverine- I just wasn't happy with the paint of the ToyBiz ones... The newer Marvel Legends by Hasbro look much more "comic"like, and I wanted Kitty to match her team.
So this was a complete repaint. First I sanded down the ribbing on the legs and some of the boot details. I repainted the dull grey/black uniform with a glossy blue-based black to look more true to comic. Then I repainted the almost transparent yellow with a more vibrant yellow (same as I did for Wolverine), and also added the yellow piping on her collar and boots that were missing from the original figure. For the head I painted the hair a richer brown, then dry-brushed with a lighter brown for highlights; the face was redone to be less shiny, with better eyebrows and eyelashes so she didn't look sooooo dead?
My inspiration for the colors were my Astonishing Beast and Cyclops figure- I wanted her uniform to be as shiny and vibrant as theirs to really capture the essence of their comic look. Hope it was achieved... thanks for looking, and enjoy!
