Here's a custom I'm very proud of: Tombstone!
The hardest thing when planning this figure was the head. I had already chosen a wrestler body to use, because I wanted him to be big and intimidating, but the head?
I had a [BA cast] head of ML5 Sabretooth and noticed that it's face was close enough, so I cut off the lower jaw and fixed it so I could close the mouth. I gave him a pair of ears from another wrestler, and sculpted a nose and hair.
It still didn't look right, so I re-did some things and sculpted a larger shin, which Tombstone doesn't actually have, but it looked much better.
I sculpted those things on his arms and the collar, and after I started painting him, I remembered I had to sculpt a belt and details on the gloves too (which is why those things aren't on the WIP picture)
Painted grey base with white drybrush for the skin. It was fun.

And that's it! I think it turned out great and I'm really happy with it, though I don't think the pictures really make it justice, but I hope you still like it!

Here ya go:
(thought I'd post them instead of sending them to you 'cause maybe someone else will see them and be inspired too. I know I got pretty anxious about making her myself now as I had forgotten how cool she was until I saw the pictures!)

Nice one, Wes! You gonna do just Spidey villains or maybe some obscure allies, like... ROCKET RACER?

Thanks! I haven't taken out reference pictures of Shreik yet because she hasn't had high priority on my list, but since I'm gonna need some sooner or later, I could look through all her apperances and take out pictures tomorrow.
Looking forward to see more of your Spidey villains!

That's really great man!
I'm doing a Spidey bad-guy right now that is proving to be that hardest custom I've ever done.
You're gonna love it man!
P.S do you have any pictures of Shriek?
