Matt Hancock - Cavill SUPES 2.0 - see 1st Post - p 1. 10/24

Posted in Custom Workstation

HEY GANG! Been awhile since I've been in here, but got some good stuff to post. Sorry if the pics are big - wanted to let you see as much detail as possible

Last year I made a Cavill custom but the sculpt restricted the articulation. Well this time around that's not the case. This bad boy is fully poseable! The entire surface has been sculpted and textured, even the belt buckle has movie accurate texture. He's in perfect scale with the Batman Movie Masters figures too. The head is completely sculpted from scratch (this is the third attempt!). The cape area on the shoulders was sculpted to be film accurate, but the rest of the cape is cloth. When the ab crunch is used, the bottom of the "S" shield disappears but as the other pics shows, it's a fully sculpted shield. He's made from a Marvel Legends Constrictor figure and the joints are the EXACT same color as my suit paints so there is absolutely NO paint rub ever!!!

*** NOTE - I reworked the face today by lowering the eyebrows. That helped a lot!




Next up has been a labor of love - a DCUC Dolph Lundgren as He-Man from the 1987 MOTU Movie. He's made from a DCUC Samurai figure and all the parts are sculpted. I've seen others use leather and other soft goods, and I've done so myself quite often, but this time I wanted to go with a completely sculpted look. The head/hair was really difficult and I just finished it today. The shoulder pads are being created and will not hinder articulation at all. I'm also making the holster, pistol, sheath, dagger, and sword to be as movie accurate as possible. I have the NECA Dolph/DRAGO figure and plan to make another one from him. I can't even begin to tell you how much sculpt work has gone into this bad boy! Hope you like him! If he ends up being good enough, I may have to breakdown and make a Langella Skeletor!



As always, I love the feedback you guys provide! Thanks for looking!

I am almost positive that his custom is going to blow the official figures out of the water. Plus it's a labor of love, he is going to cherish this so much more than any official release, at least I would.

I do admire your enthusiasm to create the Man of Steel Superman but don't see why you can't wait for the official Movie Masters Man of Steel to be released.

Hello Matthancock, In your description you said you gave your custom Spider-man an unmasked head? Have you posted any pictures of it in the forums ???

Thanks everyone - should have more pics up later - either this evening or tomorrow. Getting closer to finishing him everyday. Also got a little more work done on the Spider-Man.

Did I mention that I'm also doing the Chris Evans Captain America suit from the Avengers? Halfway done with it.

Thanks guys! His mobility is unchanged except no forward ab crunch. He can still lean back though.

Wow...you should do a tutorial on this or at least document the process. I tryed something like this with storm shadow once. To much limitations on mobility, when I did it. I'm curious how movaeabul he is? This is by far amazingly impressive! Welcome to WIPS by the way.

Hey...I picked up both stylus' at Hobby Lobby a few years ago. You can probably find them ebaY too

Thursday, September 1, 2011
man this is just as epic, you have such great patience and skill for this type of thing. can't wait to see more, both projects are amazing. as for the stylus, did you just get it in a sculpting tool pack or seperately?

Okay - so here's the tool I used to sculpt the texture on the Cavill suit...the ball stylus. I also have one with "bigger balls" LOL




Now this won't work for EVERY texture, obviously. For example, I couldn't use it to create the texture on this Andrew Garfield Spider-Man suit. For that I had to use a very fine sewing needle. It's more tedious than the Cavill Superman suit because I draw the lines with the needle, then I have to go back and put very short vertical lines. This has taken months, but it's getting close and will have an alternate, unmasked head! There are also very tiny dots in each of the red squares on this suit. I'd say there are at least 9 holes per square. Nearly crossed my own eyes working on it one night!

Sure - I'll take a picture of the actual tool and post it a little later today. I actually have two of them with different size ball tips on each end. It's a double-ended stick with a ball on each end, but I'll post a pic here later today.

I've also finally figured out how to mix paints to get the proper colors of the suit from the set pics. It's basically navy and medium grey. The shiny parts are navy and silver mixed. Still figuring out the red, but the "gold" or "yellow" is a mix of gold and silver. The silver mutes the gold a little bit.

that is so epic, you sir are blowing my mind, this is simply great. could you post a pic of the actual tool? keep up the great work.

Hehehe...I have a very small ball stylus. It still takes a lot of time and patience, but its not too hard. I basically make a row of "dents" with the ball stylus tip. Then above and below that row, I do other rows, but stagger the texture from one line to the next. I do that by placing the dots slightly above/below the row and then between the dots from the previous row. Hope that makes sense. The pigs probably explain it better than words. But yeah. I've sculpted all the suit texture so far.
