Wow awesome job! Question: because of this small scale what do you use or rather how would you go about making those tattoo designs on his arm? Paint, marker, etc.?
Thanks, glad you dig! For the tats I draw the design out on paper, scan it onto my PC, resize it to scale, print it out on waterslide decal paper, and then apply the decal to the fig. It's the best way I've found to pack a ton of detail and make a fairly realistic looking tat on a 3 3/4" fig. Hope that helps!
Interesting, I've never heard of that product and looked it up... I knew there had to have been an easier way to do this! Thanks so much for that info, I'm getting into the customizing game and always wondered how someone could go about making tattoo details without going blind! Is there a particular brand that you use? Also I notice that on your shoulder for this custom he obviously has grooves separating shoulder from bicep/tricep. Do you have to cut out separate pieces to lay it over those parts or is this paper saoft enough to adjust itself on any kind of surface with just one large piece? (Sorry for all the questions but one can only learn by asking a pro ;] )
def an interesting take that is different, yet feels true to the character... so good
It's far better than having him look as if he came right out of the Tepee
That's an unusual and creative custom from him!!! Great job!
I dig it!
Cool updated look.
