Dr. Steel is a pretty simple custom, he is a Quick Kick body and ROC The Doctor (Cobra Commander) head. I was originally going to use Hard Master's head, as he is one of the only Joe guys with a bald head and no facial hair. But it just didn't look quite right for some reason. Then I picked up The Doctor for a different project, and didn't realize the character/figure was wearing a mask and a wig. Once I got him out of the package and saw that bald, scarred up head, I thought to myself," Oh my god.....IT'S DR. STEEL!!!" I love it when you get hit with moments like that, it's one of the things that makes our hobby the greatest sport in the universe.
Also, there was no way I was going to attempt to draw his dragon tattoo by hand in this scale. I had originally planned on using a temporary tattoo for this until my brother gave me his old TMNT TATTOO figure (the sumo guy), who was still covered in vintage decals. I swiped one of these, cut it in half, and positioned it on the body so that Dr. Steel maintains his full range of motion. It works!
Thanks for checking out my work and thanks to everyone who has left me comments in the past! I appreciate it.
