Here is my Darksiders Custom painted "War" figurine. It was originally part of a package with the original game. When I got it I was underwhelmed by the terrible paint application. The armour just looked grey and flat. The hood and sash were more brown than red and looked muddy. The sword was baseless and the handle paint was almost non exisitent. The face paint was bleeding out onto the hair and even the hair was a flat white layer of paint.
So I decided to liven him up to reflect the artwork from the game.
Luckily the sculpt was actually pretty good so I got to work making it so you could see the intricate detail put into this fella. The hood was made brighter with different accents of red. The armour was completely redone to give it depth and enhance the details. The gold parts were then redone with three different gold colours and then textures were added to flat parts to make them different from the rest of the armour.
The left arm fist was originally painted with red parts between the knuckles to show the fire burning underneath but in all truth it just looked like someone had run a red brush through the cracks quickly, the red bled out onto the armour and hid alot of the sculpt. So I repainted it, toned it down and added yellow, red and orange to give it more detail. I then gave him a more bloody effect on the sword and boots as this was "War" after all.
Now it looks much better even if I do say so myself.
I'm currently selling him on ebay though to raise revenue for future projects. Please check out the listing under my seller name: pumpkinking101
