"Work in Progress"
The kids coming to life...took me long
enough. Each kid spawns from a
Mattel or a Kenner Robin. Wonder Woman comes from
the latest peg-warmer, the Mattel Supergirl.
"The Justice Babies!"
"What are you gonna do when you grow up?"
"Doomsday Damage Supes"
What better way to celebrate the Man of
Steel's month then to take extra fodder and turn
them into something. This guy's from one of my favorite
episodes, when Doomsday pummels the Man of Steel
at the base of a volcano. Vinyl and sculpey was
used for the "torn" fragments of his costume,
as well as the messed up hair (look closely). Each
scratch, bruise, and trickle of blood is copied
from a still shot of the episode.
From the episode, "Legacy", when Supes
is a prisoner at Star Labs. Sculpey was used to
fill in the shoulders and chest area. Dorky!
"Darkseid Damage Supes"
Again from"Legacy," and, again,
each scratch, bruise, and trickle of blood is copied
from a still of the episode. Sculpey and vinyl used
for torn clothes. One of my favorite moments in
the DCAU universe, when Supes almost loses it all
The before pics of the above three supermen
Painted the blue to make the figure accurate.
Very big change!
"Dr. Milo pre"
To make Dr. Milo (the JLU incarnation of the character),
I used a Mattel Joker and WW hands (her bracelets
became his undershirt, and the lady-like hands
were perfect). Super Sculpey was used for the
jacket, shirt, head, hair, and face.
Notice he's smirking.
"Dr. Milo sideview"
"Dr. Milo profile"
Jjust to give you a better idea of how
I really, REALLY wanted this head to look good.
I hope you think it's beyond crap. ;)
"Dr. Milo carded"
OK, so I'm gonna have some "what
if" moments with this empty bubble/card!
If you haven't read the latest comic series on
Jonah Hex, get to your comics store by week's
end. It's brilliant. Most issues have Hex look
as if he's being played by Clint Eastwood. Loosely
based on his outfit in issue #8, this version
(my version) of Hex comes from "The Outlaw",
a figure I found at a KB Toy Outlet. Sculpey was
used to "tear" up his face and make
his eyeball. I reversed his hat so the confederate
"rope" is facing forward, and he's completely---COMPLETELY---repainted.
This is the first time I attempted dry-brushing.
I absolutely love this guy.
This is fun! My custom figure in an empty
JLU package...we can see our dreams come to life
with this photo!
"Batman Beyond carded"
Aother dream come true!
