    Skeletor was one of my favorite villains when I was a kid, but I was kind of disappointed by the head sculpt of the MOTUC line.. so, I resculpted it a little, giving his lower jaw a more accurate look, a more evil looking open mouth, some mean looking bony "eyebrows" and a longer hood.

    The purple parts were repainted, dark washed and drybrushed. The skull on his scepter has the same treatment.

    The body was dark washed as well and sealed with a matt lacquer, removing that plastic shine.

    Beautiful work, my friend! Hope you hit He-Man as well. The original paint apps look good, but your paint apps breathe much more life into them.

    Thanks for your comments, guys!
    About those spikes in his forearms, those seem to be an odd mold thing, since he didn't have those in the cartoon, so I left them in the orginal color. Besides, the somewhat soft plastic used in some parts of these figures, doesn't take modding very well (the face was a real pain)
