So... I admit... I've gotten into this whole Skylanders game.
Like... pretty badly.
Like.... I HAVE TWENTY FOUR UNIQUE FIGURES BADLY (21 if the Legendary Triple Pack doesn't count). Not counting my pre-order of Dragon's Peak and getting Camo when he comes out (In the UK. We JUST got wave 4, minus DP, hes 5).
I actually have twenty five if you count this one. A second Cynder figure, because a) I love her figure. Its pretty awesome and b) I had her rented on the online site. So I added in THIS ones code to the website, and the next time I played... nope shes suddenly not linked to my account any more. But the code for this particular Cynder is registered to an account. So I can't unregister her, or use her on the online site... and so I had to buy a 2nd toy for her to work @_@.
Shes never been played in the main game though.
So really... I wasn't quite sure what to do with a 2nd figure. I'd just get the two mixed up if I played the game with both pathways with her.
So instead... I gave her a lick of custom paint
And a tiny bit of custom moulding... because of the figure's boobs. Considering I was painting her to match a MALE OC... keeping the boobs would have been weird.
I decided to keep the silver features intact, and actually REALLY enjoy the outcome of that. The black and the silver go really well together, waaay more than the purple did. And aside from that... theres really not a lot else about his paint thats particularly special? I admit, I did cheat a little in having a super easy design to paint- black with grey belly/ wing membranes and red eyes. But to be fair... painting a Skylander isn't easy if you want to keep the base intact (and I DID get a tiny bit of black paint on it.. and promptly smudged it worse o_e)
It did however make the painting even MORE awkward. Not only did I have to avoid the base, paint the entire thing (Really difficult with a base in the way!) AND avoid the silver areas. But the silver areas don't have a lot of black paint on (thankfully!)
OC I based the paint on belongs to me
