TSCC: Custom Action Figures PART 8

Painting is well underway and even though I said I wasn't going to show any of it, I've decided to give a sneak peek. All of the figures are in varying stages of about 25-50% done. I'm now focusing on Charley so he's about 90% finished. I had to sculpt a watch onto him yesterday after realizing he wears a big-ass one in the show and I didn't have one on him. If I'd realized that sooner I probably would have just chosen a set of arms that already had a watch. But since his sleeves and shirt were already painted with a custom-mixed color, arm patches, badge, buttons - I wasn't about to backtrack on all that so I sculpted a watch myself.

Anyway, here's Charley nearing completion:

I think I'll do Ellison next and then maybe Cromartie. Since I'm painting everyone's flesh to make arms and faces match, I also have to paint eyebrows and *gulp* eyes. I've never done eyes before and I'm scared I'm going to fuck it up. That's why I'm starting with secondary characters! In fact I'll probably grab some damaged Joe heads and practice on them first. You'll know how good of a job I think I did in the end by how close-up my pictures are of the finished product ;)

I know a lot of my pictures have been pretty poor quality during most of this because I was usually holding a camera in one hand and a figure in the other and didn't have the benefit of making a nice arrangement with a good light source. But I do promise large high quality pictures in the end.
