In the 12" scale figure realm, most people base their Punisher figures on Tim Bradstreet's or Ariel Olivetti's artwork. They're great, but I wanted something different, so I based mine on Goran Parlov's artwork. I love Parlov's artwork on the Punisher Max series and Marvel Universe vs The Punisher. He's like a modern John Buscema, Joe Kubert and classically trained European comic artists all rolled into one. He can tell a story visually perfectly, he gives every character a different face and draws them consistently, and he can just draw *everything* well. His art feels both modern and classical simultaneously. Quite frankly, his work renewed my love for comics.

Anyways, although Parlov's rendition of Punisher has evolved, he always gives Frank a big neck, tree trunk arms, and a face that looks like a handsome guy who got old, stressed out, and pumps iron like mad. So those are the elements I wanted to include in mine. I gave it a more cartoony paintjob to match Parlov's artwork as well. The figure is a WIP, but I'm happy enough to show it off for now. My plan currently is to put Punisher and his major nemesis from the MAX series into one set...

RECIPE:
Head - DCD 13" Green Lantern heavily modified (hair, skull structure)
Body - DCD arms, Spiderman Rotocast shoulders & torso, DID legs padded
Shirt - Hand sewn, skull sprayed & painted with acrylics and primer
Pants - Harley Ken
M60 - Barrack Sergeant
