Doctor Manhattan from "Watchmen"

While I'm quite happy with the movie style Watchmen figure on my shelf, I really wanted to have at least a Dr. Manhattan in scale with my Joe-verse.

As soon as I saw the translucency of Iceman, I knew a bit of dark blue transparent paint would be just enough to shift his coloring to be passable as Dr. Manhattan. I also attempted to "engrave" the hydrogen symbol into his forehead, and fill it in with a black wash, which I feel was moderately successful.

Fun fact: the same symbol is tattooed on the back of my neck!
