Marvelous Custom: Marvel Legends Style Shroud By MintCondition
: Jay Cochran on 2013-01-06
This Marvelous Custom was done by MintCondition
who has created custom 6" Marvel Legends style Shroud figure.
Here is how he describes the making of this figure:
"Shroud is a lesser known Marvel character, but has a very cool look to him that I thought would translate well into an action figure. Heís made using the body of a Marvel Legends Black Panther, the cape from a Spawn figure, the hood from a Marvel Legends Moonknight, and the head from a Legendary Comic Book Heroes Judge Dredd.
I removed Black Pantherís belt and sculpted around his waist to fill in the holes. I also sculpted over his forearms, shins, and boot toes to cover up the Black Panther detailing in the suit, and clipped all his claws off. I used one of my Dremel grinding bits to get the same texture that the figure already had to blend it in. The cape was dry brushed a light purple, almost lavender color and then attached to the figure. I used Aves Apoxie Sculpt to make a collar for him to help sell the illusion that the hood and cape were one piece.
For the head, I sculpted the visor over Judge Dreddís head, painted it, and then glued on the Moonknight hood and painted it the same purple as the cape, and added the spider insignia Shroud wears on the hood. After painting the entire body black and covering up the purple dry brushing the Black Panther had before, Shroud was ready for action!"
