Firstly i've got to give credit to darththomas81 because without he's tutorial on painting realistic skin tones I would never have even attempted this custom.
When I started Hercules I originally intended it to be an original idea but over the course of making him I decided to incorporate some bits from the comics like the headband and the color scheme plus I really wanted to do this guy some justice.
Head: WWE Undertaker
Body: TNA Matt Morgan
The wristbands are sculpted as well as the lions head on them, I did consider sculpting snakes on them but I didn't think a lot of people would get the reference, plus it doesn't really fit in with the whole lion of olympus thing.
The belt and skirt are actually made from a car tyre innertube, the lions head buckle is made from apoxie and the belt trim is just wire.
The boot straps are made from o-rings that have been dremeled flat and the studs are just sculpted.
The head is a Ruthless Aggression Undertaker head thats just had the hair and beard dremeled off then new hair, beard, eyebrows and the headband sculpted on.
