hey everyone,
can i just say i have been in a road accident and i have sustained a broken arm and wrist, it was on my left arm & wrist but this those prevent me from holding the piece i am working with at the time steadily as at the moment i am propping it up and wedging it against things :( so that's my excuse for the paint job and lack of sculpting, anyway

i wanted to do something to keep me busy as i am off work at the moment so thought my kids love 'Skylanders' make some action figures based on them.
my personal favorite is Flameslinger so this was my first choice
i tried keeping it close to the original design, but somethings just didn't look good like 100%gold arrows looked awful.... even when i done just the quills gold that still looked pretty stupid

he does have a couple different arrows single arrow, double and trio, i am gonna make a rain of fire too when my arm is better and i can sculpt


recipe
head & upper arms- LOTR: Legolas
Body, Lower arms & legs- AC1: Altair
Right hand- AC2: etzio
Left hand- Dantes inferno: Dante
Bow- 2x LOTR: legolas bows joined to add length
Arrows- LOTR: Legolas with hot glue added

thanks for checking him out, and hopefully more will follow

if you're still recovering and can't hold the figure to paint it; consider a desk vise with rubber booties to hold your work while you paint it.

cheers I've been using pilars with rubber bands to keep them closed but its still not as good as using my hand

Kind of reminds me of a humanoid version of Ralph from TMNT

Flameslinger is one of my favourite characters, this is all kinds of badass! I never would have thought of making real-life versions of the Skylanders. I really hope you plan on doing more!

I do plan on doing a load (hopefully all) but I'm a bit useless at the mo so it may be a while, I'm working on crusher and voodood at the mo, thanks again

This turned out AWESOME! There are so many cool Skylander characters that would make really cool customs. I pray for your speedy recovery, brother!
