First, thanks for the compliments. I appreciate all the criticisms I have recieved to help me better myself as a customizer. It's been a really fun ride and learning experience. I appreciate the help from Konrad, Marcus, and other artists and pred fans. Its great to be a part of the Predator cult following lol.

I personally use Folk Art, Americana, Delta Ceramicoat, and Createx (airbrush) paints. The brands I use get knocked on, but I have never had any issues, and you can see they have quite a color selection and are very vibrant. When painting, be prepared for paint rub, it's going to happen, and try to plan your figure out in layers. Start with base coats, then build on top of them. You will learn your own style and technique as you go, and learn from your peers and their advice.

These figures/re-paints are just simply brilliant!  :cool:

p.s. My favourite custom predator of your's has to be the "Red Elder predator". Now that is one badass predator with the gort mask and red reticles, pure brilliance! I also really like the burgandy colour on your latest custom, that is a really nice colour. Can't wait for the next!  :D

Excellent work all round. Have to say, I especially love Top Knot's armour and your P2's skin tones.

Where'd you get that gauntlet on Warrior? Looks perfect! I try to keep an eye out on Neca's other toy lines or spawn figs for any suitable spare bits but that one's awesome.

The glove is from some kind of Spawn half goat / half human pirate figure with a huge skull for a helmet.  He has two of those gloves, one on each hand.

After a search, here he is...

I had a whole load of pics to share, but it says I can't use photos from photobucket for some reason ?

Well I certainly appreciate the kind words.  My thoughts were to take the Pred parts I have and try to build something that would resemble the original Kenners but with more updated and realistic execution.

Altho, I am a fan of the NECA Kenner Preds.

Oooooh Whatever Wayne, LOL!!! 

You are one of the top customizers for PRED customs... who in their right mind is going to NOT like these?

Brilliant repaints as always.

But yeah, I've been busy with other hobbies but I've noticed it getting a bit quiet around here :(

That's just it. I think now that spring and summer are getting ready to hit (at least in the states) more and more are focusing on the "wearable" type of projects rather than the "collectible" type. 

Oh well though. At least there will be a whole slew of newer works when the time comes. :cool:

I didn't use to be either, but if you look back, you can see that practice makes much better results.  Look at some of my older threads versus the ones im showing you guys now.
