hi guys, been a while since i posted something new here, this custom here was intended for the ninja II contest but i couldn't finish on time, but here you go.

the idea was to give wolverine a kinda post-apocalyptic look, mixed with a ninja look, and having some of his known elements mixed in the outfit.

recipe:

- marvel select wolverine (the civilian wolverine) body
- return of marvel legends ghost rider lower legs, lower arms, shoulder pads and waist armor

did lots of drilling on this one to get the new lower legs to fit into the thighs, then i cut off the spikes from ghost riders lower legs and filled in the gaps with Aves Fix It sculpt. did some cutting here and there on the pelvis and on the thighs so that it can have better range of motion on the legs. i took the ghost rider lower arms and cut the hands off and drilled till the gauntlets were hollowed, then i put the new gauntlets on the wolverine arms. added some hot glue on thighs to keep the legs from falling before sculpting, then sculpted over and drilled to get the legs smoothed out.

sculpted new sideburns on the head since the ones in the figure were mostly painted and didn't look that ''hairy'', so yeah, that's that, used some reeves acrylic paints to paint it up, and some leather for the vest and black cloth for the front portion of the waist. did some mods to the shoulder pads to get rid of the flames and covered up the holes.

paints used were Reeves Acrylic colors and Winsor & Newton artistic acrylic, the following:
- Mars Black (for the hair, pants, dry wash on boots and gauntlets)
- Brilliant Red (for the blood on hands)
- Napples Yellow (skin tone)
- Lemon Yellow (for the shirt)
- Yellow Ocre (dry wash on skin tone)
- Silver (for boots and gauntlets)

hope you guys like this one
