Here's a sneak peek lil pic of a custom I just finished for good ol' Xhairs...

he's still in pieces and his legs are drying, but I was impressed how well he came out I had to throw out a tease for him @loll@

I did notice for some reason after taking the pics, I painted the shirt to be like a tank top, I dont know why, so I'll have to pait the flesh under the arms, and then by tonight, the clear coat should be good enough to take full body shots...

thanks guys, I used the old chinese method of.. j/k... I think it's called decoupage...

Decoupage (or découpage) is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper bits onto it in combination with special paint effects, gold leaf etc. Commonly an object like a small box or an item of furniture is covered by cutouts from magazines or from purpose-manufactured papers. Each layer is sealed with varnishes (often multiple coats) until the "stuck on" appearance disappears and the result looks like painting or inlay work.

I remember reading it somewhere on Joecusos, it brought me back to the good ol' high school art class days... and I haven't seen that many Outback customs with the "survival" on the chest, so I thought.. what the hell...

basically, I printed out the words, then watered doen the paper, so it was almost see-through, then I added some glue to the back and slowly put it on, then with a damp q-tip, I tapped the surface so it'd set into the creases of the mold... pretty easy... though one corner was a b!tch, cause it kept on coming up...

oh, and one thing, I didn't have the colored paper that I thought I did, so I improvised and printed it onto a lunch bag @loll@ and I used that.

I'm still gonna give him some sweet gear, and maybe take some pics for myself tomorrow, but for now, at least you guys get to see the figure :)

 

Head Wave 7 Gung Ho(sculpted hair, headband and beard)

Torso Link

Upper arms um... I dunno

Lower arms Spy Poop's Flint(shortened a little)

Hands Duke

Crotch Alpine

Upper legs VvV Beachhead???

Lower legs Crosshair

 

Well... let me know whacha think? I was painting the camo on the legs while I was painting the camo on the torso of my BBI custom.. and I used my Hit n Run as a base to model the camo off, so that's why they look a like ;)

 

I wanted to go with a non white T-Shirt, cause, I thought he'd just stick out like a pimple on a Message Board Troll's nose... so I went with a more earthy color... though, I do ahve another torso I'm making with a white shirt(it was my practice one)... so I might make me one now, cause I really like the look of him...

 

I decided to go with a different torso than what most people have been using for their Outback customs(Grunt)... and when I saw Link.. I knew I just had to use his...

 

Total hours.. hell, I dont know, started him a couple months ago, probably more, but life kept on sticking it's ugly nose in... Thanks Xhairs for being patient... almost finished with another one ;)

lol.. I figure you'd like that part...

it's actually quite red... it's just hard to tell ;) I wanted to go more realistic, and not a big ol' orange mop like the V1 figure ;)

does this help?

Yes that does. I see the red tint more now. :)

And of course I liked that part. @loll@
