So my sister had a superman that she bought for the Clark Kent in some two pack for a project she did. Being firmly against Superman as a super hero I immediately figured I'd have no problem making him into someone else, you know seeing as I really didn't care for the figure?
Anyway he sat there for weeks with his cape torn off and his symbol sanded off... and nothing, I just couldn't think of anything, and then it hit me like a mac truck! I had a disasembled T-800 from the Terminator Salvation toy line. I started sculpting in the pieces of terminator into the musculature of Superman and it looked great. I added some sculpted pants and a torn shirt. Various fodder pieces went into his gattling gun and the harness he's wearing.
The paint was actually pain staking as simple as he looks. I had to mix all sorts of tans and browns I had to get a remotely flesh looking color, I suck at painting skin tones. The metal was a fun to do, I learned how to paint black, then do a dry brushing of silver to make it look nice and warn down.
Really this figure was about a month in the making and I'm going to have to take the originally cancled body off of my trades list. I finally just buckled down and finished him, and I have to admit it... I'm proud.
