My Spider-Man customs continue, with Red Skull?
Yes, I know that he is a Captain America villain, not a Spider-Man villain, but he is still very much an enemy of Spider-Man, you know, with being responsible for the deaths of Peter Parker's parents and all, and he's also appeared in most Spidey cartoons.
There are a lot of Red Skulls being submitted here, and I didn't think I'd make one, since I already had the FO version, but he just looked like a little weird henchman in that armor, not like an important Big Bad, so I decided that in order for Red Skull to earn a spot on my Spider-Man shelf, he had to be customized.
I used Longshot as a base. Had to dremel away a lot of his chest and shorten his neck before sculpting on the suit. I again used fabric for the lower part of the jacket, and I'm not too pleased with that. I think I'm going to start using thin sheets of FIXIT Sculpt for that sort of thing in the future, you'll see on some upcoming customs I'm working on.
Oh yeah, the hands are from Prof X. I hollowed out Longshot's sleeves and glued them there, so they're still as articulated as they should be.
Another important thing I did was to fix the jaw, shutting his mouth. I didn't want him to look dumb, standing with his mouth open! I'm actually surprised that more people haven't done this with theirs.
I'm really happy with the head, especially the eyes, how they stare at you.
The body could have been better in many ways, but that's what happens when you use Longshot to make a suit and I'm still satisfied with the result!
