    Working on a few more custom cards & figures. I've been going back through my old Joe comics for inspiration. Kwinn was an obvious choice. Working on 2 versions (arctic gear & short pants).

    Based on the classic comic image by Herb Trimpe. Pencil drawing with photoshop inks and colors.

    Here's the card art for the Panic At The North Pole version of Kwinn.

    And here's a WIP pic of my Arctic Kwinn figure.

    Punisher body & head with Arctic Snake Eyes accessories.

    Still have a lot of detail sculpting to go. Just thought I'd share a work in progress pic. Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you might like to share.

    UPDATE: Almost finished with sculpting. I added the fur and coat details and added a little more bulk to his torso & hair.

    Just need a few more details on the coat and belt and he should be ready to paint. Also need to finish his weapon.

    Finally got a few minutes to work on my Arctic Kwinn today. The painting of the figure is mainly finished. May still do a little more touch up and detailing, but he's basically done.

    Still need to finish his accessories as well.

    Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you might like to share.

    You're too kind. Thanks very much. I'm a big fan of your customs!

    Thanks a lot SB! I hope to have the rest of his accessories finished soon so I can put him on the custom card.

    I finished some of Arctic Kwinn's accessories today.

    [​IMG]

    Included in this pic are a snow base, belt fed machine gun (had to make a new styrene barrel to match his gun from the comic) and removable goggles (made using ROC Snow Job goggles and sheet styrene strap).

    I haven't decided if I should include a shoulder ammo bag and backpack with the machine gun tripod just yet. Any thoughts on that would be helpful. I am working on an additional hood (in the up position to better match the card art).
