DanOfTheDead is one of those rare uber-customizers. He does it all. He crafts GI Joe characters, but also Star Wars and characters from a multitude of other universes, including some of his own imagining. He uses several techniques, mediums and tools from advanced painting and sculpting to Lego/building blocks to photoshop. In fact, he designed the catalogs for Resurgence II.
Speaking of which, DanOfTheDead recently surprised the guys at PHX Customs and I with a collection of trading cards in the style of the 90's Marvel trading cards, but set in the Resurgence universe. In his words:
''It was a lot of fun to work on the catalogs for Resurgence, and I was
trying to think of a way to show my appreciation to PHX Customs for
presenting another great year of this project. I LOVE the old 90's Marvel Universe cards,
and have thought about rebuilding that template for a long time ('91
was the year I got into them and remains my favorite design for
nostalgia's sake) and Resurgence II seemed like a manageable sized
project to put into that format.''
''Personally, I'm really pleased with how these came out and want to show
them off a little, but I also want to encourage PHX Customs to keep
churning out work this fun and inspirational, as well as encourage
everyone else to keep giving feedback in the (JoeCustoms) critiques forum''
