First completed custom! Yet another Absorbing Man for the board, I actually had him all laid out and in progress before noticing how many other amazing versions people have contributed that put this one to shame. One of my favorite villains, perhaps because he ironically brings back fond memories from my childhood of pouring over "Journey into Mystery" and other classics at a local farm market comics dealer. Hasbro wasn't very inventive with the look they could've given this figure with the major boost to the character's powers in recent years. A full repaint with several metallic and "masonry" tone undercoats and some brush highlights of each stone color juxtaposed to one of the others. I was really happy with the way the "brick and mortar" effect turned out so I decided to include a closeup of the legs.

Work has been crazy so the last thing I've wanted to do recently is use the computer when I get home A belated thanks for all the kind words on my first turnout!

this is cool, he looks better with just the 2 textures instead of the mashup that was the original figure. very nice work.

Awesome man! The brick and mortar really does pop nicely...realistic and such...I have a true brick and mortar home, so I have ample comparison,lol, and this figure captures the brick and stone textures nicely. Great work!
