Onyx,

 

That looks really good on that body. Once you get it painted up, that will have to be one of the best if not THE best Predator head that I have seen. Great work Bro!

Awesome, though I think yellow lines need to be thinner. Maybe try some painter's tape to block off the areas.

 

Thanks I may try that, not very good with small jobs like that since I've got tendon damage in my arms making my grip shaky to say the least. Thanks again for the compliment and constructive criticism.

I think that many of us know in one way or another about shaky hands. I have problems with the small strait lines, so I cheat. I use either the tape mentioned above or some plastick with a straight edge (window plastic from vehicles and such) and hold that against the figure and then paint. What is my bane is eyes. It takes 2 hands to hold my brush from shaking to get it to what little I can and still it looks like crap. BTW... Great work on the Super Skrull. You really did give him the flare he needs.

I saw a pic of ol' Vic with this white-on-black eye scheme and thought it was cool enough to try. Then I carefully put the coat on him from the Star Trek toy line villian- you know, what's-his-face.

a little trick i use is; breathe out slowly while 'painting' eyes! and 'bracing' one hand with the other.

I find that if i hold my breath then my heart beats hard against my chest and i 'bounce' from my heartbeat...which isnt a good thing when painting small detail.

So... I apparently need to work on my positioning of characters in pics. Ahem. In other news, TaliesInCrow, that is a spot-on Hellcat. Great paint job man!

TiC, I love the Hellcat--her mask could be a dead ringer for an Adam West Batman if you included a different lower jaw.

 

 

The Super Skrull looks like a great toy. The flaming thing arm looks awesome.

 

Guido, anything that can improve that Sabertooth figure is a winner in my book.

I just saw Tiger's Black Cat and was blown away (in a different way than Sabertooth)! I've been looking for an idea to make a Black Cat for some time, but there have always been one or two roadblocks I couldn't get past. Yours looks great!

 

And Onyx, I don't want you to feel left out--your Predator is coming along quite nicely. Keep up the solid and patient work.

Thanks Uberlad. You're right on about Tiger's Black Cat. One day, I'll have to make her. Until then, here's our good-buddy Hulk, hodge-podged with parts from the movie version and repainted. I was inspired from the work that Onyx and some others have done on this character.
