Thought I'd share my latest custom figure now that I'm here: Captain Salazar!
Seriously, he is one of the coolest looking villains I have seen in a long time. His overall design and the way the animators worked on him (and the rest of his crew) still blows my mind
Huge thanks again to Peter the Painter for delivering an awesome headsculpt for me to work with! Always a pleasure doing business with you, sir!!
The first job was to replicate the uniform from the ground up. It was very time consuming, but I wasn't too fussed with it looking perfectly neat- I knew I was going to completely grunge it up and destroy it eventually! Even though it would break my heart. It's such a sweet looking uniform anyway!
Aaaaand my heart breaks.......
And much more work later:
I put some strips of wire inside the bottom coat shreds and bent them upward.
I was undecided for a while whether or not I should have his hair down or lift it all up. I chose to go with the latter and have it all wooshed to the side in a very unnatural looking way. I really wanted to showcase that big, gross chunk missing from the left side of his head and all of Peter's detailing around that area.
The display stand was stolen from the Hot Toys Jack Sparrow DX15. Looks better with Salazar anyway with his zombie shark and all
