Hello.This custom is an original design for a character set in the spider-man micro-verse.I made a version 1 of this character a while ago, but he was a cyborg.Very different from this guy.
He was made using a ML Longshot base figure for the body, and a raven spawn's head.The head had to be modified to fit the ML peg.Then it was primed black and the spider symbol was added.The raggedy cape also came from the raven spawn.It was modified a bit then dry brushed in black and red, and adhered to the body using tiny bits of black velcro,...I know it sounds weird!..but it worked out o.k.! The spider emblem is made of adhesive backed vinyl,painted black and dry brushed red. The skulls on the sleeves of the jacket come from a different spawn cloak.They were also primed in black and dry brushed red.
Here's what I was thinking for the backstory...
This guy used to be a mafia hit-man called the spider.He was called that because his preferred method was to bleed his victims to death.He is set-up and betrayed by his mob family,as they considered him too unstable to control. In the attack he suffers severe burns that were thought to have killed him, but he somehow survives,..thats all I've got.I'm not sure if he's got powers or not,...I'm not sure if he's good or bad,...What do you guys think?
Please comment and critique away,I could use the feedback on this guy!Thanks for checking him out!
