View Full Version : Classics Movie Leo repaint

Hello Dromers. I repainted the Leonardo Figure from the third Classics wave. It took me quite a while, even though it's not too obvious from the photos.

I added some shading and green highlights to the skin, painted the nails, dirtied up the pads, belt, and shell, and redid the eyes.

Mike is in the pictures for comparison.

The shading works well, but the eyes less so - it looks like Leo's just smelt something nasty. I think it's cause the eyes themselves are the right size on the figure, but the mask eyeholes should be larger (to show the skin around the outside). Short of resculpting the mask though, I'm not sure how to rectify that issue.

He has that look he gets when he tells Shredder he's a liar, after Shredder says "The Rat? It HAD a name." :tlol:

He gets that look a lot when talking to Walker and Lord Norinaga in the past, too. :tlol:

I'm not a fan of the eyes but otherwise it's an improvement. Very nice. I'd be interested to see what he'd look like if you switched his mouth with one of the other turtles.

I notice the difference, but he looks like he smoked some good sh*t. I actually love it. :lol:

I admire the hell out of what you've done here. It's one thing to go at it all heavy-handed, but you went for something more sophisticated and subtle. Very nice.
