    Forcing your willpower into the ring. Asking it to give your thoughts... life...

    ...is that what it's like?



    every time.



    damn.


    Part two of my Hal Jordan special. Hal has obviously taken over as my new favorite comic book superhero. Something about the concept of willpower and how powerful you can become through it fits me well. I decided to do Hal first and maybe follow up with the rest of the magnificent 7 and then the corpse. Hal here was made with careful planning and although the execution wasn't what I would've liked, it'll do just fine.

    I decided to make a simple base for him and give the base some space for the battery to be displayed. I think the lantern battery is one of the most iconic objects in the DC universe and shouldn't be left out. I originally intended to put LED's inside but I sucked at it and sticked to what I do best. Sculpted a lot on this guy and added some height as the BNB figs are on the short side. Chopped the legs and molded some mass to do that. I also decided to sculpt my own mask and hair along with the costume. I chose the Kennedy head because I thought it added more emotion if Hal's expression was a little more intense. And what would a Green Lantern be without a construct? For Hal, simplicity but accuracy and strength is the way to go. So, the standard power beam was chosen over more sophisticated constructs. I'll try to do more complicated ones for my future GL's.

    Cheers and I hope you like it! Commens are always welcome!

    DAMN! He looks PISSED! It all looks badass. I like his expression when he's using the blast but not when he's just standing. Looks like some angry guy shouting. But with the blasts, he looks powerful as hell.

    I love it! It's like if Marvel Select got ahold of the GL Liscence and decided to give him a bunch of accessories.

    Now for some crit. I love for everything cept his face.I could see him gritting his teeth or looking stoic as he does some of those poses but the screaming look just doesn't work with Hal too well for me for some reason. Not sure why.

    I think from the neck down, it looks great. But the head really doesn't match with Hal very well. Aside from the head though, great work. I really like the work you've done on the base and ring blast.

    awesome work man! i like the base and accessories you've made! GL looks so angry though, and his facial expression looks great when he is displayed in a dynamic pose, but doesn't really fit well when he is just in a normal standing position. just IMO
