Colossus the Painter
When I started working on my custom X-Men figures, the intention was always to steer away from the costumes. And while there are often a few nods to their iconic colors, I mostly wanted to go with the casual clothes I'd imagine them wearing. So when I started Colossus, some paint stained overalls seemed the obvious choice. Custom brushes, paint tubes, and paint covered palette seemed like they'd be great accessories, and fun to make. As the idea for some photos of him painted started forming, I made a pile of scattered sketches, and a few painting, finished and unfinished, printed and transferred to real canvasses. Psylocke seemed the ideal model.
