Thanks again everyone for the kind words.

Next up is a McGuinness Red Tornado. It was a commissioned piece and the guy sort of rushed me so I am not 100% happy with the outcome, but what can you do?

The only thing that I can find wrong with it is the head - I think the head should be a bit more rounder and the arrow should be painted a bit wider. That's the only thing that I find it's wrong with it and otherwise looks really fantastic rendering of Red Tornado here.

Interesting...The customer wanted it based on the Super Powers figure but maybe I didn't look close enough at the arrow. Really wish I could have had more time to work on this one but there is always the next figure.

Thanks for the feedback, I greatly appreciate it :batsmile:

Head is fine - I was looking at Red Tornado's pictures and I take back what I said - the arrow on his head should be thinner not wider ... here's a perfect picture of that. :batsmile:

P.S. Maybe you should change the colors of his cape too ... your call here.

Ah, Yeah, I can agree with you on the arrow being too wide. For the cape, the customer wanted the same colors and look of the Super Powers figure:

looks like a great rendition keeping in mind that it is in the McGuiness style

I think he looks great...the cape color is hard to tell but it looks a little darker blue; again hard to tell against the black backdrop

Great job, looks like McGuinness's work...even though I'm not a fan of his work
I am one of the 63%....

Thanks everyone for taking the time to comment.

Here is a Arkham Origins Batman figure that a customer wanted redone. He is happy so I guess I did okay!

Had a client that wanted a Death of Superman figure to go with his new Doomsday Unleashed, so to work I went.

Magnets in the figure and cape so the cape can be added or removed. First time I ever actually successfully casted a head, so I am pretty excited about that.

Thanks for looking!
