Smythe is a character I like a whole lot. It started when I was a kid and watched the Spider-Man cartoon, where he appeared in very many episodes.
So when I read through all Spider-Man comics I was greatly anticipating the entrance of Alistair Smythe, and was surprised and dissapointed that he was so different. He was a fat disgusting computer geek! Then he lost some weight, but he was still disgusting. I would asume it was because of his popularity on the cartoon that they revamped him, making him into the Ultimate Spider-Slayer, which is the version this custom is based on.
I used a ML Angel as base and added ball joints on top of the shoulders for those weird things he's got there.
I used an Vision head, glued on a pair of ears and sculpted hair. The ponytail took a really long time to make, because I could only do a little at a time. It wasn't very fun.
I for his toes, I gave him some claws from an ugly plastic dinosaur, and the blade-things on his legs and arms, I cut out pieces of plastic.
Oh and I almost forgot the tentacle-blade-things on his shoulders. I used plastic pieces, trimmed them down, dremeled a hole in each and then sculpted the rest of them, so they are now poseable.
When I painted the figure, I used a Metallic Aliminium paint as a base for the legs and then put on a blue wash, and I was very happy at the result, it looks great in my opinion!
I think this figure came out beautiful, because of the colors and all the weird things coming out of his body.
It took a whole lot of work, so I hope you guys think it's cool too!
