I thought I'd do a post this time just on customer pieces. I have 3 to show off and first up is a DC custom I was asked to do for Ninty. Ninty is a huge huge fan of Green Lantern and he asked afew customisers to sort him out some Lanterns for his collection. So here is what I was asked to do: Agent Orange!
Ninty's custom blog can be found here and I recommend you check it out: Ninty's Customs. Not a lot of photos or information on the net about this guy (because he's new) But with the photos I had I tried my best at making a familiar looking Agent Orange. The photo below shows the base figurine and his sculpted (unpainted) head.
The next custom I did was Iron Man in his Silver Centurion Armour. Now this guy is heading for Ebay as I want to try and put someone on there each month. On the subject of Silver Centurion look out soon for another version coming from me as a customer piece.
The last of the 3 is a character I have done before but Jimbob liked him so much I made another... Here is the Red Hulk.
And finally. I don't wanna cause an arguement but I feel I need to defend the latest accusations from SHFF. This is what Grim had to say in yet another personal attack:
"when are you going to tell your LOYAL fans, who wait on every word YOU preach with bated breath, just exactly who at FP Portsmouth paints your figs for you? Any fool can see that there are two distinct painting styles; yours and A N Others........but what's the point me saying this, you'll only deny it and plead VICTIM"
All I have to say about this is the more you do something the better you get right? I sculpt/paint on average 4 customs aweek. So with every custom I learn new techniques and styles. I don't like getting stuck doing the same thing the same way. I will push myself to try new things. I first started using the drybrush effect properly on Miss America's cloak and I got more confident using it and now all my customs are drybrushed and I also now use a technique called blending. The best example of this can be seen on Agent Orange's lantern...
I'm gonna take what Grim said with a pinch of salt as at the end of the day it would seem that comment acknowledges that my customs have massively improved from last April.
One final thing. DC bases! I have loads! If anyone wants to swap some for Marvel bases then I'd be happy to trade. I got 37 reg size, 4 special size and 2 super special size. Oh and a Buffy one!
