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!

Thank you all so much for the kind words and support! I'm floored by the list of artists who chimed in given your skill levels; really means a lot to me being a newer artist still learning the finer details of the medium. Glad you like him!
