In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the GI Joe brand, I decided to create a custom action figure of an American soldier as the appeared during the Vietnam War. I wanted the figure to have a youthful appearance, hence the no beard. The most difficult part of this figure was coming up with the various shades of green to recreate the look of the uniform during that era. Every layer of paint was mixed by hand using various hues of Folk Art blues and yellows. The figure was first painted with a base color of brown and the last coat was a dry brush or yellow ochre with green.

To teach, improve, share, entertain and showcase the work of the customizing community.
