Default Bowen original xmen busts repainted

Hey guys

here are 4 out of the bowen original xmen busts that i repainted {cyclops, jean grey, beast, and angel}. the owner wanted to go with a deep dark navy blue instead of the black, and X patch on there costumes. i kept it with a black base coat to keep the blue dark and to add depth and trim to the costume..then i gave it a matte finish to bring out the shadows in the yellow much better.

thanks for looking.

You must have surgeons hands to paint those X symbols that smoothly!

Thank you for the comparison pics. Great custom work... still not comic accurate.

Everyone knows you can't have an x men related statue or bust without the telltale x on it. If the K Bros only had the waist on these we would have had the x belt. I personally like the x on the chest. It definitely doesn't look out of place. Great job, Rob. And great additions to the custom collection, Chris.

Blue is how they should have been done originally. Maybe even a darker blue than here.

Love the work, nice job.
