    okay I was the one who commissioned Jake after looking at all the pics I was really happy about the quality of his work. I just got them today and I just want to say this guy did not do a good job he did an amazing job ! Pictures don't do them justice, really spot on customs. This guy really puts in amazing time and effort. Thank you so much Jake I look forward to working with you again
    thanks again
    Jake

    I might post some pics of the figures with the scythe armor

    dismantled, sanded, washed and let air-dry

    used enamels and lacquers applied with an airbrush. touch ups with a brush. clear-coated the hell out of it for durability. added stickers and touched up the areas around them (they were printed on white paper). clear coated the hell out of it again. lots of really thin layers of paint, slightly heavier layers of clear-coat.

    thats it in a nutshell!
