With that, it's over to Stars once again to take us through his great effort!:
This piece was one of a set of characters from Giant Sized X-Men #1 that was commissioned.
There was a lot of hesitation on my part before I started this piece. The varied design elements looked pretty daunting to me. Luckily, I took my time and I ended up thoroughly enjoying the process of creating this figure. In the end, I was sad to see him go, but I know he made my client happy.
All painting was done freehand. I do this to increase my skill level. I personally do not mask, as I like the challenge of painting without a guide.
Many thanks to Stars for taking the time to write up this thorough explanation of his great work! We'll have another Custom Spotlight next month with a custom of Stars' choosing!
Until next time!
