Venom Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:17769  
Name:Venom
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Spider-Man - Movie
Creator:VIPER PRIME  
Date Added:October 19, 2009
Base Figure:DCUC Superman (Black Suit)
Height:6.50 inches
"Never wound...what you can't kill."

If any of you out their have been wondering where I have been this is why. This has got to be the hardest custom I have worked on...ever. Here is the recipe:

Body-DCUD Black Suit Superman (in the movie he was bigger than Spider-Man but not drastically. This figure was a perfect choice on muscularity and height)
Hands-Hasbro's Spider-man 3 Venom figure.
Teeth-Tooth pick ends
and this layers of Fix-It sculpt.

I didn't like the storyline for Venom in Spider-Man 3, but I did love his look. I never found a Venom figure that really captured his essence from the movie, so here his my little interpretation of what he is. One thing I've noticed about all Spider-Man movie figures is that they sculpt the "texture" of the costume on the "non-wbbed" areas of the body. I do not mind that but on venom the costume texture is everywhere. I did my best to get the "honeycomb" design of the costume by putting thin layers of fixit, head-to-toe, and then engraved little holes with a tooth pick.(Example. Picture 2) The head was challenging because I cut off Superman's hair then filed down his mouth the make Venom's throat more concave. Areas that had artulation challenges (I.e. sholders, elbows, knees, etc.) I dremmeled the the little holes. Then I sculpted the web patterns, which took the longest. I took advantage of the fact the his web design are more like a real spider's web, sloppy and no specific pattern. Spider-Man's are even and measured out where Venom's have more spacing involved. I will tell you that this figure isn't 100% accurate, but I think it one of the best movie Venom figures to be had.

Paint Apps:

This was most imortant because I noticed in the movie his web lines were black where most figures, on the market, have silver. What I was paint the whole figure flat black, drybrushed the figure in a gun metal/silver mix, and painted the webs in a high gloss black. I feel that this is a more accurate color scheme of the figure. At first glance he is black, but if you look at him real good you can see many different huges of a black. Black Spider-Man did have silver web patterns and I think that is where the confusion comes in. Venom is supposed to be an anti-Spider-Man, and his costume represents a deranged version of Spider-Man's black costume (kinda like Spider-Carnage). My goal was to really capture that look and style. Last I purposely didn'y paint his finger-nails because I felt they stand out too much and I prefer the comic look of the black nails.

I hope you all like this figure, I worked really hard on it, and I feel it is my best Custom to date. Thanks for viewing. Enjoy!

Thank you so much for this. It is truly an honor for me and it gives me more ispiration to do more with my work. It has been a goal of mine to be recognized as a great customizer like Jin Saotome or Kyle Robinson. Having this Venom being featured as a Custom of the Week is a real testament to my hard work, and I have my friends here at Figurerealm to thank for it. If it wasn't for the great advice and the tutorials this figure would have never been possible. So thank you very, very much. Hopefully I will have more great figures like this one to display in the future.

Thank you all so much for your feedback. To answer some of the questions out there... Hours? I wish. This custom took me almost 3 months. If I include the consecutive hours spent making it I'd have to say easily 3 1/2 weeks. Yeah this one was a doozy. Again thanks for all the support and feedback.
