My concept of an updated undercover Raphael look. I used an 11 inch movie Raph as the base. Reshaped/sculpted the head, hands, feet and shell. Apoxie sculpted the outfit. Implanted magnets in bandana and face. Steel anchored rings into lower legs for sai holders. wip pics soon. Thank you for the support. ~ K

Well, I have an art school degree in my back pocket. My major was Industrial Design so I have a lot of experience working with my hands and sculpture/model making.. But as far as strictly customizing toys goes Ive done about 2 dozen projects up until now. I really like the aves material too. My advice to you would be to just keep at it. Maybe one of these days ill start a thread going over all my tools and materials.

I'd definitely subscribe to that one! Thanks for posting the WIP pictures, very interesting to see how he was transformed.

I can't understand how I don't see "TMNT Staff/Crew" under everyone or you nicks. You give overtake official work with every custom you do.

Kwalsh, I really dig the concept itself of this Raphael. The scarf covering the face may look a little too outlaw for a final work, but everything else is so contemporary and appropriate I have no words to praise your work as it deserves.

Magnificent.
