I’ve been having a good time creating a custom head for action figures. I’m a big fan of action figures, and so the thought of customizing is fun. Eventually I want to do a full body too, but the head was something quick for me to get started with! I had modeled this head of a friend of mine a while back, and so it was pretty quick to throw the hair and mask variations on it. Meet my friend Kyle as Red Arrow and Blue Lantern!
There are some adjustments I would like to make, this was just a first pass. For example, the cutout for the neck is not quite right so he looks a bit like he’s jutting his head too far forward. Also, I’d like to update the hair to have some hair detail sculpted into it. And my paint job needs some work. The eye area was tricky and looks a bit wonky. I just bought a fresh brush so the next version will hopefully be a bit better.
