Hi to all. First thanks for all the comments of my ghost rider...! Now I`m here again and I made an archangel ( yes.... another one). I inspired in the one made by VariablePenguin, thanks for that, but this is some different.

I use an XMC archangel, remove the rocket pack, fix the wings with a knee joint of a 3" stormtrooper (sorry fans, he die on action and donate his parts for the science), and finally sculpt the hair with putty, this is my first hair sculpt (not the last ... I hope), simple repaint of the face and he`s ready to fly

thanks for your watching.

Don't make me get out the bopping tube...
Maybe next time try stealing another figures long hair?
Just a thought, youd need to find a hairstyle you like, transplant it, then all you have to do is glue it down and paint it.

Sorry about all the ugliness in your thread Snikt I felt a need to defend my actions and did not think for one second about you. I apologize for that friend and hope you can forgive me for it.

Yes buddy, I really like make him with long hair, but if I like to maintain the movement of the neck, then was impossible to give greater length to the hair, although I agree with you, more hair must seen better. thanks for the commentary

Amen to the bickering argument above I agree with VP and Dedi
But let talk about the real issue here this very well done archangel and if thats your first attemt at sculpting hair dude I need to get some more tutorials read cause thats awesome. My first one looked well hmm how shall I put this I will never post my first full head of hair sculpt, as it is not worth to be flushed in the toilet. And yours rocks it looks similar to the MOTU prince adam hair sculpt. So great job!
Mods please remove the ugliness from this thread please

Well if you look at the reference picture and pretty much any picture of Warren Worthington III, he looks kind of affeminate. The name Angel isn't just because he has wings, it's because he looks like an angel completely.
On a side note, I'm pretty sure "professional" artists would be more constructive with their feedback.
Totally agree on both paragraphs
Plenty of times wolverine's called Warren "tinkerbell" cos of his pretty boy features
Angels a character that doesn't exactly exude machismo
And a professional artist would not only be constructive with his feedback, but also post some of his own work to show how its "done right".
Post some of your work - otherwise youre just appearing to be blowing smoke.
Apologies to Snikt_baby - the creator of this thread and custom - Youre archangel is really quite good for your first attempt at hair sculpting
I'm really digging it
And your photography and photoshop skills is superb (photography I fall down on and am in awe of some here taking superb shots)

sheesh people deal with the art. Marvel drew it, they published it so leave it be.
and change your signature and you submit a custom microboards. then we'll criticize it.
and very cool work on Archangel Snikt

Can we try to keep down the arguements? If you're gonna start at it, handle it off the public forums if you will.
Nothing worse then bogging down some else's showcase
Nice figure though, it looks good, especially the skin tone. the only change id make, and its a personnal preference, is longer hair. Obviously, its however you like it, I'm just a fan of Angel having long hair.
Nicely done

I wasn't biting your head off before friend, just trying to get you post specifics along with your criticisms.
Unknown User - Thursday, August 2, 2007
he looks kind of feminine (don't bite my head off greymonk) but the workmanship is superb!

Whoa, that was your first attempt at hair sculpting? That's incredible!!!

I've got to say, for a first hair sculpt that is really darn good. I'm really in awe of it being a first. the face looks great, just like the card. glad you took those goofy @ss rockets off, I love how companies almost love to ruin archangel figure, no rockets, just wings. excellent job man, keep up the good work.
