MCP – Colossus & Magik Painting Guide

Welcome to my latest painting guide! The Rasputin’s hit the painting table and bolster my X-Men. Like the previous guide I’ve tried an NMM approach for these two, particularly Colossus. Whilst I would have liked him to end up a bit lighter, I’m still pleased with the result.


I need your support. Because my guides takes time and supplies to do, any support you can offer would mean the world to me. A supportive message in the comments is enough, but if you have the means why not send me a gift on Ko-Fi or PayPal. Thank you!
