Commissioner Barbara Gordon (Batman Beyond) Custom action figure by Hunter Knight Customs

Commissioner Barbara Gordon! She was a commission for a customer using a Hawkgirl base, plus sculpted parts. Her head was completely sculpted from scratch using a ton of references from the show. Finally, her glasses were just an action figure blister packaging cut in shape and glued to a slit I made in her nose. Check her video for more pictures at: http://bit.ly/2l08drZ

Custom Queen Sumana figure from the episode "Trouble in Arcadia" Masters of the Universe Classics

Queen Sumana was a commission I made for a customer. She appeared in the episode "Trouble in Arcadia". I used a cast lower torso of Shadow Weaver, cast upper torso of Battleground Teela and other parts. The sleeves were the most challenging part of the whole thing as they were crafted carefully bit by bit.  Her staff was created from scratch and designed by me based on the crest she has on her head.
