TMNT Walkabout custom paint by Adam Pratt

Adam Pratt shares with us his repaint of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Walkabout figure:

I really enjoy painting up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figures. The sculpts on them are crisp, and there are many little details that got lost in the original paint schemes (which were garish and neon).
This guy got painted up in a very realistic paint scheme, and I added a bunch of little freehand details that really made the figure pop.
He was painted with acrylics, washes and weathering powder before being given a matte seal. He dried with a tiny amount of shine, and the paint applique looks like it was originally printed on the figure.

You can purchase this figure in his shop here and read more on his blog here. After seeing what this figure originally looked like, straight out of the packaging, I feel like Adam is fighting the good fight. The original colors were an abomination.

The figure was actually disgusting before Adam repainted it. Whew, what a difference!
