Hello again from the work table of GeeKSummit!!!
Here I have my Christopher Reeve 5.0… Quite possibly my 50th custom this year!!!
This figure takes several elements to the next level with more detailed sculpting to the boots, upper torso and my new favorite technique for cape attachment.
Boots are sculpted to give the feel of wrinkles near the ankles along with that standoff look toward the upper shins. The lower torso is enhanced as before in the Salkind manner and the upper torso is sculpted over to give more prominence to the ribcage and chest. The cape top is sculpted on to give total control of its presentation allowing for the fabric soft goods cape to the attached on the back likewise for total control in presentation. Head was an unretouched DCD New Krypton head, but has since been replaced with a new resculpted and recast Superman likness with a more "reevey" harido.
All in all I'm very proud of this effort and strive to continue to improve on this design until I can't improve No MORE!!!
Thanks for looking!!!
