Damgdguds: w.i.p. pics - Batman the Animated Series

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hey everyone! I just want to share some progress pics of a commission piece I'm doing for Darth Teitanis. When he first came to me with the Idea, I thought it would be a hugely difficult undertaking, then I did a little research and thought it would be easy. Turns out I was right the first time haha. Regardless, it's been a blast working on this and he's been a fantastic dude to work with!!
Anyway, here are the pics: Batman the Animated Series.

I started off with this guy, which I realize now there were probably better base figures to start with, but it worked.

Dremeled down a huge amount of bulk

Sand and smooth

Remove belt and begin resculpt with torso, legs and arms

More clean up

Block in belt

Block in head. Here's where it got a bit tricky. I actually tried sculpting over the original head, but sculpting over a rubber head with magic sculpt was a major pain and lead to cracks, so I ended up cutting the neck and head off of a marvel legends spiderman, fusing it to the body, and sculpting over it.

Here's where it is currently

Still a ways to go. I'm being maticulously anal about every little thing, so it's taking a lot of time, but it's worth it to see a nicely articulated batman TAS. I know there's been a few of these on this site, I just hope to do those justice.
I'll keep updating with progress, I'll even post some W.I.p. pics of the mignola batman I did as well. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks for looking!

Now add the yellow oval crest on his chest.

This looks really neat. Can't wait to see the finished piece!

I will admit he looks great and an incredible transformation from slide to slide!

Love using pricey figures for customs, makes me feel all giddy inside I don't pay loads for them, just when I get lucky.

Ha don't feel bad at all! I got the even rarer Batman figure that was only released in the UK so I could take it apart and use the cowl for a custom. I think that figure is $200 plus mark now but I had my favorite Batman custom for years so it was worth more to me.

Thanks everyone! I've been pretty busy all week so no updates at the moment. And I had no idea that the base figure I used was so rare, now I feel terrible. Thanks truwe316 haha
