  1. Years ago, I made my first Spiral figure. Went with X-Force since it was a simpler design to pull together. At the time, it was an insanely impressive project for me. I've been dying to revisit it since I've gotten better. And hopefully at some point I can get around to giving her classic design another go, as well. So, it isn't super difficult to remove the Valkyie arms and insert them into a singular body. It would maintain the full articulation, but I hate how it looks. And once you get them to sit properly, it kills the mobility anyway. So, instead, I cut the pegs off, dremel into the main body, and glue them in place. Just angle them in different directions so it allows for the illusion of full mobility. Sculpted up the fur boots. From there, a full repaint, topped off with a few swords, and all done!

  2. First did this piece a few years ago and have been wanting to revisit it ever since. Thankfully, I finally got the chance. It's based on the Marvel Legends Cable, and this time around I was able to get a lot of the details much closer to his larger counterpart. It's still definitely my favorite look for him. I cut the lower legs at the boot and extended them a bit since they make him a bit too short for my liking. Sculpted up the back of the gloves, the knees, pants and pouches, lower leg armor, additional strap on the belt, the metal on his face, and the full upper torso. Started with some metal going up his neck, then the full armor over it. Took a couple layers, but went much smoother this time around. I really struggled with it last time. Full repaint, and all done!

  3. I didn't initially plan on having the female Spawn done this week. I had forgotten she was one I wanted to make altogether. But then I saw the gameplay trailer for Spawn in MK11 - the announcement that started this whole endeavor - and saw the female skin for Jacqui. Was a bizarre choice. But, it kicked up my interest, and here we are! I hate spikes. They were bad on the male Spawn, but trying to make them even smaller for a female variation was agony. Oy. Fully built on the BossFight blank with everything sculpted on. Bracers, boot, skulls, cape, and every, single spike. Glued some small chain on, gave her a full repaint, and all done!

  4. Years ago, I made a simpler variation of Spawn. Many less spikes and no shredded cape. Then I did a Commando Spawn. Low on the articulation, heavy on the armaments. And then a couple years ago I made the Angel Spawn and Angela. I've considered revisiting her and making Redeemer. Not sure yet. There was another Spawn design in the mix as well, but I'm not sure what design it was. But finally I've gotten around to making a proper classic Spawn! Whew. I really wanted to go over the top with the cape, but I needed it to still be manageable. Fully sculpted up the cape, bracers, skulls, arm band, leg pouches, boot, leg bands, and all of the spikes. Glued some chain on, a full repaint, and all done!

  5. I've been wanting to revisit this guy for ages. I never could get into the Savage Dragon comic, but I always did like his design. Pretty much the same issue I've had with a lot of characters, honestly. I made him once years ago, but was never really satisfied with that rendition. I've seen some amazing hulking designs done by some phenomenal customizers, but I still wanted to try something a bit more balanced. Sanded down all the hair on the head. And then a little bit more. Smoothed over the head, then sculpted on the fin. Took a couple tries to get a pattern I liked. Fill in the holes on the back of the Hyperion upper torso. From there, gave him a full repaint, and all done!

  6. So, over a year ago they brought some Street Fighter characters into Power Rangers Legacy Wars and made Ryu into a Ranger himself. A few months ago, they brought them back and added a Chun Li Blazing Phoenix Ranger into the mix. Since they're here to stay this time, I don't know if they'll introduce any additional Street Fighter Rangers, but I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed for Cammy. Head was still from the BossFight female blank. I just sanded it down a bit, then fully sculpted on the helmet. Everything else on the figure was sculpted on. The bracelets, skirt pieces, belt, gloves, armbands, chest armor, top of the boots, and even the yellow stripes going down her legs. After all that, a full repaint, and all done!

  7. This is actually my first Joker figure. How long ago did I start making figures? About ten years or so, and this is the first time I've ever actually made a Joker. A great one to start with, too. I'm not sure where the head originated from. The guy who commissioned the piece sent it to me. Cut and dremeled the feet to fit. Sculpted up the pants, vest, collar, tie, and sleeves. Had to dremel the head a decent bit to finally get it to fit. Full repaint, and all done!

  8. I've been talking about trying to revisit this guy for ages. I made a couple renditions of him ages ago, but was never quite satisfied with them. Finally, recently got to go back and not just remake the two I did before, but fix up all of his variations. Stone, Crystalline, Metallic, and the Magma transformation in the Metallic variation. After I swapped out all the parts, everything was sculpted. Boots, pants, skirt sections, stone arms, stone chest, straps and shoulder pads, facemask, and hood. After all that, full repaints, and all done!

  9. One of the very first customs I ever made was a Dexter Morgan. That was back when I was focusing a lot of my work on the Wolverine Origins bodies and was still trying to work out what paints I liked. That one was a bit more of a casual wear design. Since I've been revisiting a ton of old projects this year, I decided to give him another go. It helped that AngryNomad shrunk a Dexter head. Sculpted up the full shirt and the pants. Swapped out the lower legs, and made the pants a little bit baggier over the boots. Also had to redo the boots slightly to they were a little shorter. Full repaint, topped off with a random knife, and done!

  10. I've been considering this off and on for a while, and I've finally tried my first diorama piece. At one point a couple years ago I considered switching to display pieces so I could focus more on the details than the mobility. Coming off making a commission where I had to sacrifice some aspects of the design to maintain articulation, and it bothered me a bit. But, I didn't like the idea of trying to ship a diorama. Anyway, I was asked locally to fix up a She-Ra and we went all out with a full display. The idea was to mimic the image of her standing on a cliff with the Crystal Castle framing her in the distance. It was a ton of fun, and I have more ideas I want to try, but not sure when I'll get to them. Figure first. Resculpted the bracers slightly. Sculpted up the shirt, collar, and armor sections across the torso. Cut and glued the skirt in place. Rounded out the back with sculpt, then sculpted on the belt. Sculpted up the boots, and resculpted the headpiece. Had to cut and resculpt the sword a little bit, and add the gem. Cut out some cloth, glued it to her back, gave her a full repaint, and all done! And the display. Started with a wooden base. Something from a craft store. Sculpted everything on top of it. Started with the stone look, then fixed up the castle base. After that, I sculpted up the central tower piece, and then painstakingly sculpted on every single other detail on top of that. I actually did use a couple small gems at the top. I keep forgetting about those. Glued them on to make my life a little easier. It is most definitely the most complex and intricate thing I have ever made from scratch. It's not perfect, but She-Ra hides the major flaws and she's happy with the final product, and that's what matters. Full repaint, and all done!

  11. This is not an easy figure to get ahold of. And while I've gotten better at sculpting, I still don't really want to make the helmets from scratch. Or Saba. The White Ranger is the one Ranger from the original series that I haven't made. I mean, unless you want to get really technical and count the Alien Rangers too. But I don't. I think the only other original based Rangers I want to make now would be a gender swapped set. At least for red, blue, yellow, pink, black, and green. Sculpted up the full chest armor, which took a couple layers to get on there. Sculpted on the armbands, bracers, leg bracers, and the belt. Dremeled into the head a decent bit so it would sit properly, too. Gave him a full repaint, including some very tedious detail work on Saba, and all done!

  12. I've made the original Power Rangers team three times now, but only once have I tried the Green Ranger. Back during my first run through the group. I've wanted to revisit him for ages, but have consistently kept putting him off. Getting better at sculpting has definitely made this concept a lot easier. Sculpted up the full chest armor, armbands, belt, morpher, and the bands around his boots and gauntlets. Dremeled in the head a bit so it would fit better, gave him a full repaint, and all done!

  13. Man, this was a crazy piece to work on. And expensive. Whew. I was asked to try an Infinity War Thanos on a Shao Kahn body and initially I loved the idea. The problem, however, was the material. Various pieces on the Storm Collectibles figures are soft rubber, which is tough to easily sculpt over. So, this became quite the endeavor. I was still determined to get him finished, though. Picked up the head cast from eBay, but PlasticCurves also has it available, along with variant heads. Since the torso was so annoying to work with, I had to sculpt the suit in layers. I smoothed over the upper torso bit by bit, then sculpted another layer that I could actually cut into. Then I sculpted the last over the armor over it. Added sculpt to the upper legs and lower torso, as well. Sculpted up the belt, waist, kneepads, and the full boots. Sanded down the straps that remained on the shoulders, then sculpted on the full gauntlets. Hands are made soft too, so I stuck with fists for simpler modifications. Cut off the blades and properly resculpted the hands. From there, a full repaint, and all finished!

  14. My favorite character from Infinity War. Ebony Maw was definitely the stand out member of the Black Order. They gave him powers of telekinesis in the movie, and I think it was a great improvement on him from the comics. Sculpted up the pants, sleeves, full torso, and skirt sections. The head was a Frankenstein cast. I wanted something a bit larger than I used for his comic look. Or, more specifically, something longer. Cut the nose off, reworked the head, and sculpted up the hair. Gave him two larger hands, a full repaint, and all finished up!

  15. Avengers Endgame is coming up, so this was good timing to finally fix up some more Black Order figures. Seems like I'll have a few of those in the lineup, this time also focusing mostly on the movie lineup. Interestingly enough, pretty much everyone else is pretty close to their comic designs, save for Proxima Midnight. She's actually pretty immensely different. Swapped out the lower legs then moved into the sculpting. Sculpted up the armor on both arms, the bands on her right leg, her knees, and her gold boot. Smoothed over her torso, front and back, and sculpted up the horns and hair. Cut the blade off the spear, then sculpted up the trident section and the bottom. Full repaint, and all done!

  16. So, this was an unplanned concept. Last year I fixed up each member of the Black Order just in time for the movie release. This year, around the time of Endgame's released, I got commissioned to make all the movie designs. In the mix of things I got to make a Black Swan, a different approach to Black Dwarf, and there has been some discussion about trying a movie concept Supergiant. I realized if I did another rendition of Black Swan, a properly updated Corvus Glaive, and a movie Supergiant, I could actually consider myself 100% fulfilled with the Black Order. And that brings us here! Used the black blank, but I did swap out the upper arms for the white blank. Sometimes you just gotta be a little lazy on the joint work. Added some sculpt to the lower legs and lower arms. And then I sculpted up the top of her pants and her upper arms. Used the bald head, and fully sculpted on the hair. Used some material strips for the strands coming off her arms. From there, a full repaint, and all done!

  17. After working on movie designs for the Black Order, I was asked about the idea of doing a movie concept Supergiant. The idea intrigued me, so I checked into it. Turns out, there was concept art for adding her into Infinity War. So, using it as a general guide, I was able to pull this together. And with her and Black Swan out of the way, there's only one more Black Order design I need to fix up before I've checked every box! Smoothed over the upper torso with sculpt. And sculpted up the hood. I love how the head was way too small for the body, but once I added the hood, it was a perfect fit. This was also my first attempt at sculpting a cape. I'm having a hard time finding stuff I like to work with, so if I can get better at sculpting them, that will cut out a lot of concern. I really need to find something I can drape the sculpt over and properly shape into the position I want. But, after all that, a full repaint, and all done!

  18. Here's another batch of pieces I've finished up. This first one is recent, and the rest are past postings of the rest of the movie Black Order designs. Including a concept. Ok, so, this wasn't my own creation. A guy named btanselanoican designed it. He did Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. I believe the concept is supposed to be them as Dungeons and Dragons gear, or how they would appear if they were characters in D&D. Either way, they look outstanding. I was so far only commissioned for this figure, so I'm not sure if I'll end up making any of the others. But if you like it, definitely look them up. The art is very detailed and great for figure/cosplay reference. I don't really post reference pictures these days, but thought it necessary for this one. Sculpt. So much sculpt. Literally everything. Belts, sword blade, hair, cape, armor, straps, all of it. Tedious work, but I'm very happy with the final result. Full repaint, and all done!

  19. Here's one I've been making a bunch this past month! With the new Titans series out, I was expecting multiple variations of Robin to hit my schedule. Instead, I got a bunch of Nightwing. Thankfully, he's a favorite of mine to work on. Not too much to him, really. Sculpted up the arm bands, and resculpted the hair on the head a little bit. Also smoothed over the batons with some sculpt. From there, a full repaint, and all done!

  20. So, I actually managed to get this done just in time for Halloween! I'm shocked. But I was very determined. Actually, I was determined to finish more, but they didn't quite make it. For those that haven't seen it, this design for Jason was created by Tom Savini, the horror effects guy. Or at least, his team. It was an exclusive to the Kickstarter, and it looks awesome. I made a Jason a bit ago, but once I saw this one, it had to be done. Classified as Savini Jason, I much prefer the Inferno Jason title. Sculpted up the pants, full torso, spikes on the shoulder, collar, sleeves, and chain around his wrist. Then I sculpted all the tears on the suit, and added a couple of breaks to the mask, as well. Glued some dark metal chain to him, gave him a full repaint, and all done! Included a shot of him with my classic Jason.

  21. I finally finished up my movie style Black Order run and really wanted to share this one. Cull Obsidian is definitely my favorite of the set. Really like his movie design. And I'm fascinated by the name change. They don't even say his name in the movie, but the credits still refer to him as Cull Obsidian as opposed to Black Dwarf. Anyway, this was a tedious, but fun set to run through. Might try a couple of the comic designs over again at some point. This was a ton of sculpting. Sculpted up the full boots and kneepads. Added some sculpt to the upper legs, and sculpted over the entire torso to make his suit. Sculpted up the belt, front and back skirt piece, the rings, and the sash hanging down. Sculpted up the shoulder pad, strap, and the shoulder armor attached to the arm. Sculpted up the spikes on his arm, and the full head. After that, I sculpted up his entire weapon. From there, a full repaint, and all done!

  22. Took me years, but I finally got this one finished up. I've wanted to make Knightmare Batman since the first time I saw Batman v Superman, but finding time in my schedule to make any of the dozens and dozens of figures I personally want to get to is difficult. But, hey, we got there! Definitely my favorite movie look for him. Started by getting all the parts swapped out. Sculpted up the emblem, utility belt, sleeves, gauntlets, wraps around the gauntlets, pants, boots, knees, holster bands, collar, and the goggles. I think that was everything. From there, a full repaint, and finally finished!

  23. I used to post on here ages ago, but a few years ago I had a computer crash and lost links to a bunch of old forums. Recently stumbled back here, and thought I'd share a few of my more recent projects. Thanks for looking! I've been talking about this one for a long time now. I recently got a series of commissions for the original Power Rangers, and I knew if I was making the Pink Ranger, I absolutely had to finish up the Ranger Slayer. Had to get a couple shots of them together. For those who don't know, in an alternate reality in the Power Rangers comic, Tommy remained evil and became Lord Drakkon. After this, he killed most of the Rangers and turned Kimberly into his main soldier, the Ranger Slayer. Sculpted up the right arm gauntlet, belt, morpher, left arm, shoulder pad, collar, upper torso, bracers on her upper legs, knees, and hands. Modified and resculpted the helmet a bit, too. Second head was also from BossFight with the hair sculpted on. Cape was cut from material and glued on. Need to find a different kind of material to work with. Bow was a random one I had on hand, completely resculpted. I'll be posting a before and after short of both the figure and the bow on Instagram later this week. Dravenheart2012 for those interested. Full repaint, and finally all done! Recipe: Base - BossFightStudio Female Blank Bow - possibly a Lord of the Rings figure?

  24. Here's a set I always wanted to make, and didn't know it. I'm a huge wrestling fan, and with my recent endeavor with Jake Roberts, I'm finally getting better at them. And when I was asked to fix these guys up, I couldn't resist trying out one of my favorite tag teams. I initially wanted to make the shoulder pads removable for an added touch, but couldn't get it to properly work on this build. Resculpted the shoulder pads from Road Pig, then added some toothpicks for the spikes. Picked up a ton of random heads and found these two to be the best fits, but I don't remember exactly where they came from. Full repaint later and they were all finished up! Exceptionally fun projects. Recipe: Bodies - MU Wonder Man Heads - random casts Shoulder Pads - GI Joe Road Pig + toothpicks for spikes
