View Full Version : Classics Krang

Well I've finally finished my Classics style Krang, standing near 8 inches tall. All of the body work was great fun - sculpting, casting, etc, but painting turned in to quite the task. I think due to the simple design of the body, I was unable really do a complex wash and drybrush like I do with most of my customs and have it look good, so not being able to do that meant I had to make the smooth skin portions nice and evenly colored.

Also, as fellow customizers know, painting yellow and red is a nightmare.

As I've expressed elsewhere on this forum, I'm no longer a fan of making customs for money and really regret doing that in my younger years. Nowadays I'll only make a custom if it appeals to me, or in the case of the vintage figures I do with MysteryColor, to improve my skills. Also as I've mentioned before, if I want to make a custom to sell, I will make doubles.

Thanks for looking,
Rob

The following pictures are of the Krang clone that I'm going to keep for myself, the other will be up on eBay in a short while (likely not this week). Although if anyone wants to make me an offer for it, hit me up via PMs.

Thank you, sir. As you always say, it means something to get a compliment from a fellow customizer.

It looks great, you've done phenomenal job with sculpting! If there's something to be critizised, it would be the size of head, it would look more "accurate" with just a bit smaller one. But that's not a big deal on such a good custom.

Awesome job overall, I can imagine it was no easy task. Only thing I would change would be to make the Android head a tad bit smaller, or perhaps just making the Android arms/hands a little bulkier could balance it out. But those are just really minor critiques, it's still a great custom. Good job!
