[sup727] my customs // updated [jan4th]

Post by sup727 » Tue Nov 18, 2008 5:32 am

my latest custom:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
the paint job isn't as clean as i would have liked. sort of rushed through the process. it's sort of bobblehead-ish right now. the stand i used to hold the head enlarged the hole making it a tad bit bigger for a snug fit.

Image
Image
Image

PLEASE LEAVE COMMENTS/CRITIQUES/QUESTIONS. this took a lot longer than it should have, but with school and some mistakes, it took almost 3 full months to do. i've probably put about...200+hrs into doing this. there were some days that i worked on it for 10hrs straight w/o eating or anything.

it's sort of late with the season since it's pretty much winter...or at least it feels like it. but this was started at the beginning of october(?). it's only a teaser. one can only know why when the whole picture becomes available.

yeah. i learned the hard way. instead of "traditional" clear coats, i've been messing around using sharpie paint markers and testing liquin gel on it to see if it would work. i don't know what to think of it yet. the liquin gel isn't supposed to be normally used as a clear coat, but it has the same effect, and it gives the paint some life.

more pics coming tomorrow. just finished the last clear coat a few minutes ago. hopefully it'll be done and ready for pics tomorrow.

well i sort of incorporated it into the "checkered" coloring of the spaces between the branches. the final pics don't show the sides and top of the head but it's colored with variation between darker and lighter blues between the spaces.

thanks for the comments.

thanks for the comments zonnie. i'm sort of wishing i could have done something to make the front look nicer.

i definitely should have looked into finding the cheapest madL to use for a custom before i started on this, but i was a noob and had read that the flame was the most commonly customized madL. if i had only realized that $50 flame is more expensive than a $25 phase 3 madL. :-&

you should use light liquin gel with oil paints if you want to quicken the drying process. had i painted without it, it would have taken probably twice as long.
