View Full Version : 2012 Repaints

Did some repaints of the 2012 show figures, they're not my greatest work but I started work on the bootleg Nick turtles and moved up.
Shredder Casey April. I gave Shredder a black bodysuit, darker steel armour instead of bright silver and a paler skintone, along with his burnt face. I gave Casey a full repaint to make him as cartoon accurate as possible and I simply added stripes to the socks and shirt of April.
These are the nick bootleg turtles. I simply experimented with various washes, along with painting the plastron a more subdued colour to be more in line with the series. I'm also going to be painting the eyes on all the turtles.
These are three of the four stealth turtles. I've got Donnie on the way. I decided to actually make these look better by painting the ropes on each belt, adding in silver details and painting the Turtle Phone green on each one, I may experiment with darker colours on the bandoleers later.

Looks nice. The washes aren't too dark from what I can tell (which is good). That bootleg Michelangelo looks like he's on roids haha since he's on donnies body. Like the flat color of the shells. It's always fun to paint figs. I got better each time I painted. Look forward to more of your work and watching your style progress and generalize across other figures.

Wow these look great. :)

Thanks guys. Yeah, the Mikey is jacked but I think I might prefer that to his stumpy short self. I might get a second set of these bootlegs to turn into Mirage style black and white turtles too. I've got a Kirby, Slash and Rahzar ordered to work on next.

Those look good; I'm digging Shredder's darker armor. :)

Added Dogpound to my collection but hated the unpainted bones and strange fur paint, so I tried to make him look better by making the markings more apparent, painting the eyes, bones and claws. I've paired him up with my more accurate Shredder and now just need Fishface.
