    Ok, I've been reading these boards for quite some time and I have to say I'm blown away by what I see here. Here is a custom of a character from my own little universe named #1. He's originally a Black costume Spider Man. The arms are from two pens I was able to fix in place. Also the head is from a Corps figure, well half of it is, but sadly it's a rough job. Basically he's a very simple repaint, with slight modding, but not bad for a first attempt. Anyway thanks for looking and any tips that you guys could give for doing more to him would be appreciated.

    edit: I've included my original sketch of this character to give a better idea of what I was aiming for. Also posted an image of what I imagine #2 would look like, though I fail to be able to work out how to do the arms. They'd be a group of very simple looking characters, all sporting one colour each.

    So this is your own made up figure? Looks cool, but we could probably give you some more suggestions if we have some concept art to look at.

    # 1 looks pretty spot on but man is #2 cool as hell! When is he going to be done?

    Edit*If your any good at sculpting the arms look pretty simple and the light coming out of the arms could be done with a hot glue gun or styrene.

    I've been wondering about that myself too lol. He's the cooler of the 2 in my opinion. I've been having trouble finding the right mold, but thinking about going for one of the WWE figures as I don't want any details on the bodies and I want him to be a bit bulkier.

    Also, the forearms and head (the actual modding) are gonna prove a real challenge, as I have no real modding experience. lol, all the equipment I had for #1 was a small hacksaw.

    Uh, does your creation have a name per say. As for suggestion I dont have any. He's kinda like a ninja, only mutated.

    He has no real name, but thats all part of his story, the one that I won't bore folks with. Though if you like we can call him Dave. Thanks for looking.

    I would love to see someone else's interpretation of him. If you're interested in a bio I have one for him, but if the look is all you're after, by all means help yourself :) 

    Just let us know how it goes.

    sure thing and here are a couple of related threads from fan art for more pics

    all the characters you'll see in there occupy the same world, I just need to think of whats relevant from the story for the bio, while I have it, it's all in the old noggin. Gimme an hour or two and I'll get a brief one out.
