Snake eyes WIP Comments welcome

Posted in Custom Workstation

this is stage one. comments and criticisms welcome this is one of my first ML customs. and please I need help with my sculpting in my mind. the helmut has a way to go. I have more photos to come of the mask that goes on him. the face is supposed to be my take on the 1980's snake eyes unmasked. thank you all in advanced. {sword is scratch made from a Blade ML sword. Shot gun is mod-ed from a Hunk RE fig.}

side shot. needs a lot more work but I have hit a wall. I made a error and had to trim things down only to realize I was right the first time so I may make another....
simple enough. the other thing is I wanted it to look similar to the Resolute snake eyes but I keep changing my mind? suggestions?
also added button snaps to the straps.

Face plate first images.

Well that was the plan. I put the start on it but then realized it was off center:[
also had second thoughts, but I'm gonna make a couple of masks and see what looks best but for now
The mask is on hold. Was hoping someone would have a better idea on here actually?
Like maybe a hybridization of cool ideas on different masks?
Thanks for the comments!

I didn't want to gEt all bogged down on minusha' but, YES it is. I am actually gonna lost it on here for comparisons! It's way more deformed. But I wanted to capture that feeling of the bulging eye with scared tissue around it and actually. If you look at it I matched the scare patterns for nerd points!

Ahhh! Now were frenemeys! I'm a storm shadow guy!
But this fig is one of my favs. Him frank and buggy ( of the 11 I'm working on now)
Are my proudest. It's funny cause I gotthe gambit for my stormshadow body and guineas for the sword and head.
But this snake eyes has fast taken my affection from stormshadow.
The longshot head, after I ripped off the mullet just looked so... Like a dude who was
Taking no garbage from anyone! I searched for images of his face reveled and found an old
80's comic panle and I was like omg! So I took to drenching and scaring with annexacto
And after I sculpted on the helmut I was amazed how bad a$$ it looked on that body.
I have to fix the feet. Add the sword sheath gun holster put a face on the mask
( this fig is heavily inspired by resolut) but I love it and I can't wait to see what it turns out to be!
A lot of people on here have done BRAIN MELTING snake eyes on here. To many to mention.
But I'm not the first to use this body ( I looked it up after I started it)
I forget who did this body whit a SE HEAD? but it's a great body for it. And I will look him/her up and pay omage.
Thanks and check back! More to come!
And thanks for the long shot!

thank you both. I have been here a while put just drag my feet posting.
fistly , I tryed more sculpt around th eye and I just never got it the way I wanted it. I am undecided as to what to do. but thanks cause that has been a big thing I've been debating.

secondly, these photos are old. and the mask photos will go up later. I need to make a second mask. only cause I screwed this one up. it was perfect and I just couldn't leave good enoug alone.

as for the legs, im gonna keep'em for now. I made this cause he was laying around. I bought him for the sword and head for a storm shadow. but I am modding them.

thanks so much, and please check back I love to hear what people have to say.

I think this looks great especially the scarring on the face and my only suggestion would be to add a bit more sculpt around his left eye
