Well it feels like forever since my last submission, I thought/hoped I'd have lots of customizing time this summer but I hadn't planned on the 10,000 jobs my wife would create. Anyhoo, here's the next in my MOTU Line it's the cosmic enforcer Zodak. I couldn't get one of his staffs in time so I just created this one, he is known to use many other weapons anyway. The gun is a nod to the vintage Zodak.

Recipe

Head = 200x Zodak - dremmel to fit.
Helmet = 200x Zodak.
Torso = DCUC Guy Gardner.
Chest plate and backpack = 200x Zodak
Upper Arms = DCUC Guy Gardner.
Lower Arms and hands = DCUC Batman.
Arm Armour = 200x Zodak - hollowed out then simply slid over batman arms.
Emblems on hands = 200x Zodak, sliced off then dremmeled to a thin piece.
Loin Cloth = 200x Zodak
crotch and Upper legs = DCUC Guy Gardner
Lower legs = DCUC Batman and 200x Zodak grafted to fit.
Feets = DCUC Batman, resculpted the details.
Staff/ sword = Lego Bionicle for the blade and some unknown missile for the handle.
Gun = Power Rangers, one of the newer ones??
Paints = Games workshop
Sealant = Loctite brush on superglue and Games Workshop Satin Varnish purity seal.

Still got a few more planned for my MOTU line and I'm determined to get another one done this summer, not sure who yet.

Cheers Arez!!, Beastman has begun, you can check out my WIP thread in the forums if you wanna see the start I made, think he's on pg 13. Bit ambitious so it's gonna take a while

perfect job man, really love your skill and you are making MOTU platnium. I await your next work, like a kid at christmas. Would love to see a tutorial on your skin tones, they are excellent. I saw the one you already did, but would love to see one on zodak. great job as always, keep em coming.
Darththomas - Thursday, August 18, 2011
Thanks bud, I'm working on another flesh tone tut at the mo, unfortunately I didn't take any pics of Zodak's process but I can tell you the order and colours I used as always they are GW paints
Base coat = Scorched Brown, 1st drybrush = Bestial Brown, 2nd drybrush = Calthan brown, 3rd detail drybrush = Khemri brown. The last two are actually Foundation colours so they have a different consistency (kinda chalky) but they still work.
I think four shades is where the magic happens for me, I'd say three as an absolute minimum.

thanks for your help, really love your skin tones. I am no where near the painter you and others are, but know I wanted to do my zodak justice when I make him. I am using conan as a base, but will be making a dc version also. thanks again.

Darththomas - Thursday, August 18, 2011
Glad I did him justice for you mate, I'm shocked at how many of my friends (so called 80s kids) who don't know who he is.
