I've apparently a lot to catch up to with the customs, but man, I couldn't complain there - Love the work! Leia certainly looks a lot nicer, Cap looks amazing, and Ms. Marvel also looks pretty stunning! Love the comparison shot of the Ms Marvels.

Marvel Now! Captain America V4 & V5

Postby 1987olds442 » Fri Mar 06, 2015 1:30 pm

Hey everyone,
Thank you everyone for the comments on the last few customs :smgrin:

I'm finally starting to slowly get back into customizing after moving. It's taken a while with the renovations that had to be done and getting everything unpacked and setup at the new house. So to get back in the flow of things I finished up a commissioned set of Captain America figures. One is painted very similarly to the other Marvel Now Caps that I have painted, but the other one the commissioner wanted it to have a little darker color scheme. I also bought one of the shrunken Commander Rogers head cast from Casting Cave for an alternate head. What do you all think?

You really paid great attention to detail, gorgeous paint job, amazing likeness, and so vibrant of a custom job on Captain America here.

Incredible workmanship 1987olds442!

This looks awesome, olds. The paint job on the head is masterfully done.

King of Wash around here. Nice work. I like to use the excuse that I don't do a lot of washes because Mattel didn't do a lot of washes, but the truth is it's still a skill I need to learn/work. I bow to you.

You have this Cap down to a science! Looks good, like the dark blues.

Thanks :smgrin: To be a small part those require a lot work and attention to detail and some strong reading glasses.

Thank you very much I really appreciate the compliment :smgrin: I never really thought I would have gotten my painting skill to the level it is now. I remember when I was just getting into customizing and thinking that I would never be able to paint faces/eyes and adding cool color washes to my customs... but over time with experimentation and checking out what others were doing in WIP threads I slowly started building up my painting skills. One day I would love to try my hand at air brushing, but for now that is a skill that is out of my reach, and I would like to advance my sculpting ability like you have done.

Thanks, and yeah I've done quite a few of these Caps now. It was nice to change up the color scheme on this one, and I really like the darker colors on this one.

Peter Parker & Marvel Movie-verse characters

Postby 1987olds442 » Fri May 08, 2015 10:32 am

Hey everyone I just finished painting up a bunch of heads for "The Amazing Spidey-Fan" over on the Fwoosh forums.

First up is a Iceman head cast from Casting Cave that I painted up as an alternate unmasked Peter Parker head for the new Spider-Man figure.

Next is a bunch of movie-verse heads that he bought from Glassman Customs. I'll take some individual pictures of each of the characters a little later.

Olds, your Spider-Man, Hawkeye, and Iron Man ... are just breathtaking indeed and I just can't believe the details that you put into it ... the Iron Man is a KEEPER and I wished I could buy that one from you! ... Knowing you - No Sale!

Fantastic Job all around ... thanks for sharing it. :wwsmile:
