Just a re paint job. change the whole color scheme and different kanji to resemble Shin Akuma.
But this has the beginning story. this was my first figure as a collector (first actual figure I owned was ninja turtles as a kid)
A friend of mine had it and I thought it was cool so I ask him where he got it from and he said it was an old gift. I found one at ebay for myself which progressively got to the point that I was collecting many figures and later on my friend gave me his because he knew I liked it. having 2 of them I decided to paint one, I had an artist background already but never tried on figures, I saw couple of tutorials on the tube and the first technique that strike my attention was dry brush which I used to make this. It was fun and it went ok for a first timer so from there on I started to do some more.
And now Ive found yet another way to make art.
note: pictures are recent the figure was painted about a year ago so it may have paint chips or scratches.
Ive included the original for comparison.
