This Absorbing Man is an extension of the version depicted in Journey Into Mystery #121 that I like so much, with some features from issue #115 thrown in for good measure. I landed a Marvel Legends Icons Grey Hulk to use as a base and completely redid his head, facial features and pants using a Dremel and lots of wet/dry sanding. I also Dremeled in some "seam" grooves into the "steel" side of his body. Then I went nuts with Apoxie sculpt and Fix-it to do the rivets, stone arm, cinder block and brick textures, boots, and pants. I also sculpted over a hard styrofoam ball from Michael's for his ball and chain (decorative chain is from one of the mega-hardware stores). He is painted using a variety of textures and dry brush applications using Citadel and DecoArt paints. Finally I sealed him up with Plaid® Mod Podge® and Krazy® Glue. Check out my WIP thread in the forums for more details. Thanks for looking and God Bless!
