Play Arts Kai Commander Shepard Repaint

First I want to say I had an inkling Commander Shepard was going to be bad. I bought him real cheap off of Ebay, most likely because the previous owner saw how horrible it was. Anyway, I was definitely NOT prepared. He has the WORST face job I have seen ever, it is terrible, it doesn't even look anything like him.

To get an idea of what I am talking about, check out this link on AmiAmi, Specifically look at the difference between his face and neck skin tone.

Normally, I would never, ever try to mess with a face, but in this case...Shepard's face is soooo bad I had the confidence to try because hell, ANYTHING would be better.

So here is him after I opened him up:

Yea I wasn't ready for how bad it was.

So then I whipped out my paints and got to work:

And finally the Finished Product!

And Finally A Side By Side Before and After

Man I feel so much better about him now. I was so scared I was going to mess up, but in the end I really am happy with it now.

My recommendation for anyone, get fem shep, its probably safer that way.

He might look a bit "shiny", but wow, at least he doesn't look like he's black anymore. Really well done.

Looks much better! I still can't believe how they made that face like that and just without shame put him up for sale.

As MarshallDTeach says below, it entirely depends on the figure. I own the Batman Arkham Asylum PAK and he looks almost perfect.

He looks leaps and bounds better now! Original looks like they shot an airbrush in each eye and called it a day.

He's a bit...shinier. but yeah the flesh looks alot more realistic. He just looks like he's a bit sweaty, like he's in the midst of a tense battle. so it actually works quite well.

As for quality, it ENTIRELY depends on the figure. For example, Arkham Asylum Harley Quinn and Batman and Hitman's Agent 47 are all great.

However, Arkham Asylum's Joker is cross-eyed, and God of War's Kratos looks like he has soot on his face.

Those are the only ones I have, so I can't speak for the others

Ashley Williams PAK [ITEM #99127] also looks bad in my opinion, although not as bad as the Male Shepard. He definitely takes the cake. You did a good job with your repaint though. He looks so much more like Shepard now.
