Finally got around to finishing this guy out. He sat unpainted for weeks, but I finally cleared my schedule of Ramen Noodle and Xbox to sit down and give this guy his proper treatment. This is revision II since my first attempt was right after the first preview images were released… Enjoy!!
Work in Progess Shots:
I started with a Scallox Red Lantern figure (mainly for the texture of the boots and wrist cuffs) and sculpted the ribbing with Apoxie Sculpt. Chopped off a buckle from a standard Supes and used hand cut sign vinyl for the emblem and accents on the wrist cuffs. Top portion of the cape is sculpted as well. This should allow for total control of the appearance of the cape as it tucks into the suit.
Primered throughout… The emblem still looks like it will give me the proper depth to paint easily.
Head is from Version I of this figure from the Bank Vault reveal shots. Hairdo has that Elvis blowback look to it still. This will be corrected in Version III for sure.
And here we have it, the Man of Steel | Henry Cavill as Superman before silver accents are added… Still a work in progress...
Version I from Bank Vault Reveal shot. I was sure that the trunks were going to be tossed out but wasn't sure how the belt would be treated, so I definitelt shot blind of this one, I'd have never guess what they were going to pull to keep that torso broken up… Good thinking DC, I think folks are going to dig this new look.
Full Body Shot
That's all for now… Stay tuned for Version III in the indefinite future!!!
