    Oooooooooooo!!!!!!!

    Ichigo's Hollow mask was a blast to make! The Hollow mask is made from good ol' Sculpey while the stripes and teeth were added as decals. An open hand that is attached by a ball joint is also included. Never try to solidify spirit particles over your face without it!

    One of my favorite moments from the Anime is when Ichigo shows up just in the nick of time to save Rukia from her execution in Soul Society. When he arrives, he does so wearing the Skywalker Cloak, a gift from Shihoin Yoruichi.

    The cloak isn't an exact replica, due to the fact that the Generations Drift figure has some serious shoulders, but the Shihoin Crest and the cord have been recreated as close as possible.

    DUUUDDDDDE!!!!! Again, not a fan of Bleach (mostly just haven't really watched it) but this mask is sssooooooo SWEET!!! Great touch with the cape too. Even out of context (aka me not watching the show) it really seems to fit the figure well. I kinda want to make a cloak for my drift now like in his spotlight issue. I love the new hand too. Did you sculpt that out of Sculpty as well?

    Wow, really good job man. That looks amazing.

    I've got a question for you though. As someone who wants to repaint Drift, what method did you use to paint him and would you do things differently?

    It's a solid piece of styrene, sanded and sanded and sanded some more! The rest was just buffing and paint, bro.

    I like to base coat my figures in Krylon (Fusion Flat Black of Krylon Camouflage Ultra-Flat Black) then add the paint apps over that, by airbrush and paint brush.

    As far as what I would do different, I'm not sure. Literally, the day I opened Drift I thought...ICHIGO!!! :lol  Most of my ideas come from out of the blue. So, whatever idea you may have, give it a shot, man!!! Remember the most important opinion of your work to listen to is your OWN opinion. Do what you want, but make sure you have fun.

    This is a really fun custom man, the Hollow extras really make it. Loving that blade you gave him, over sized melee weapons ftw!
