It’s no secret I love Sean Gordon Murphy’s “Batman: White Knight” books. His introduction of Jean-Paul Valley is arguably better than the original. And of course I dig the costume designs. Thankfully, Todd McFarlane knocked those out of the park where the figures are concerned.
I had seen some folks online repaint the AzBat figure in the traditional silver, gold, and blue color scheme. It looked so good I wanted to try it myself. In my case, I used only metallic paints. Everything is dry-brushed. (First I dry-bryshed flat grey over everything that was not meant to be black, followed by the metallics.) I followed the paint with a chrome pen, randomly adding shiny bits and edges, as if the metal had seen some action. The result in-hand is really striking, and I hope to use the technique again soon.
