This is my first submission to the Realm and it is for fastfreddie. I took his suggestion abut posting it here to show off the line of customs based on his awesome artwork. I've only been customizing since Later March, early April of this year and all of my work can be seen over at the Soup.
He was made out of WWE Deluxe Aggression Edge. I ripped off his hair and then proceeded to see what needed to be done to him to make him look like FF's artwork. Threw some milliput on his face, let it cure then reworked it with a dremmel bit to look like a mask hugging the face. The shin-pads were sculpted, Lord, 2 or 3 times to look like the work and so that they looked like matching pairs. Got the loin cloth off of the Sin City Miho, and cut and fit it. Dremmeled most of his crotch down so that the loin cloth would fit a little more flush. The knee pads were out of the fodder box and came off of the Stealth Jumper Batman I believe. The hair was sculpted except for the pony tail. It was a piece of Darkchylde hair left over from the "Lady in Red" custom from way back. A rubber band here and there, some more milliput, some sanding, some more milliput and then sanding down the whole figure, prepping him for painting.
I wanted to do something different for painting him than on my previous works, and almost all the color on him is wet mixed on the figure and then drybrushed with a complimentary color to try and bring out or add a little more detail. For the Green "cloth" parts, I used 3 slightly different shades of green wetmixed onto Citadel Foundations Knarloc Green.
The skin tone I'm particularly proud of. For that I used a base coat of Citadel Foundation Tallarian Flesh, then a coat of Citadel Dwarf Flesh, then quickly doing a wetmix with Apple Barrel Flesh color. After 15 minutes or so , I went back and drybrushed the AB Flesh and Citadel Elf Flesh. After letting the paints set and dry for a little over 24 hours, I doublechecked him for any touch up spots and then sealed him with a matte finish sealer.
Without any further adieu I present ...
