OMG...finally finished this bad mofo... I admit this was quite a challenge but very very satifying to finish. Used Wrarrl as base figure (I'm sure almost every body knows just by looking...LOL). Used Hulks right arm for his over sized rigth arm, dremmeled the middle fingers then sculpted over it. Took a lot of effort but finally made is as how I see it in the web. Used some McFarlane bese and took of some skeleton of some animal of sorts, sculpted a bit on it to fit my own reditions of Nightmares right arm. Scupted over Wrarrls chest and put the monster mouth in it with sharp teeth out, mouth unopened though. Cut Wrarrls skirt and made it into Nightmares front accessories, retained the cape though did some cutting to it ( saw this drawing of Nightmare with cape and it was awesome.. so I partly based my custom on that). Did some sculpting on his thighs for the leg armor. Used the skirt MOTU's Triclops I think for his left arm biceps guard. then sculpted over Wrarrl's head...used tooth pick for the pointy things on his head and BAF Mojo's pointy leg for his horn. Then his sword is all sculpt and love... used extra hard modeling clay for it, also used badminton balls for both eyes. Experemented a lot on Nightmares paint... painted him Cerulean Blue Deep, then washed it with Cadmium Red Dark, then washed again with black. Used some gold paint on him then dry brush it with light purple. Right arm was a mix of some colors I can't even remember, washed with red then light brown. Sword was painted blue... then white, then washed with dark red...then with light red... washed again with light purple and light brown... used tooth pick for the purple and red highlights (veins like thingy) then painted the eyes. Whew...and exhausting custom if I do say so myself. Hope you guys like is coz I'm sure as hell love this custom. Comments and rants are welcome all the time.

Great Nightmare custom. Not so sure about that cape though. Then again, it's your custom not mine. A+

Thanks so much for the comment guys, feels good to have a hard work appreciated. Nothing anyone can't do with dedication, hard work and the right tools (special thanks to the realm for all the tutorials... which I go back and forth to review). Forgot to mention that I put dripping blood on Nightmares chest mouth coz it just had Ivy for dinner (LOL). Again thank you guys for the kind words.

Quite possibly the most bad@$$ VG character ever, and you've rendered him beautifully. Outstanding work.
