I seen this really cool Alien Racers kid figure awhile back and snagged him since he had some really cool artic to him. After looking at him for awhile I decided he would be the perfect leech body.

I sanded off his dreds and sculpted him a tossle cap for the head. The head was then painted with 3 shades of green the cap with 2 shades of red and black and the eyes with 2 shades of orange and a top coat of yellow.

Th body was completly redone and Leech was given a hoody. The racer originally started with some type of wacky armor not any more. I used dark purple and blues to fill the gaps then top coated in black. The hoody was going to look tp plain so thats when I asked what would look good or popular on a hoody. I ened up using the Punishers skull and am very happy with the way it turned out on him.

Finally the legs were sculpted to make them resemble jeans. What look like finger prints on the jeans are not. I use my own jeans and imprinted the denim design on the figures pants. Used the denim pressed areas for making them look worn during the painting process. I started with a regal blue then coated with a nd ultramarine and then a mix of ultra and ice blue.

hope ya like Leech hes been a long time coming!
