Rory Destine is a child of Adam Destine and a Djinn. He has the power to increase or decrease gravity. He can only use his powers when he's around his sister Imp. Him and his sister are twins and the youngest addition the ClanDestine. He is raised by his older brother Walter, which whom he thought was his uncle. Rory seems to be excited about his powers and likes to use them. He really wants to be a superhero, even going as far as to New York to meet heroes. His power is great enough to pick himself and his sister in flight. And also strong enough to take himself and his sister in a car across the Pacific Ocean. But he was drained when they got across the Pacific Ocean. Just like his sister their powers stem off of each others. so if he used a lot she would be drained and vice versa.
Crimson Crusader was created by Alan Davis, and first appeared in Marvel Comics Presents #158 in 1994.
For the base figurine I wanted a pretty small figure, one that would look similar in size to the Imp figurine I did sometime ago. I chose Iron Fist, it had the perfect body mass, and stance, plus it was the perfect mirror image of the Imp figurine.
Quite a simple sculpt to do, once the I'd removed the bits I didn't need from the Iron Fist figurine, collar, head band, belt, with sash. I then used Milliput to hide any costume lines. I started the costume sculpt first by creating the belt, then the front of the cape, followed by his trademark hair, which I built in several layers. I then added the 'C' to the front of the cloak, followed by building the cloak itself.
A very simple paint job, with several shades of red for the costume, several oranges for the hair, and the usual Elf Flesh for the skin.
The following photo's are of the basic stages used in applying the paint effects on Crimson Crusader, showing all four sides.
