Base Figure:wrestling/dc direct/ many
ok so I have been wanting to make this set for a long time. First off, all the figures of doomsday have his bone protrutions as these massive things, but for a superman geek like me, you know that he didn't get the huge shoulder/back bones unitl hunter prey, after the death of. When he orginally came on the scene his shoulder bones were large but not humuguous. I tried to reflect that style. Also I tried to get a real sense to the figure as if it was out in front of your house.
doomsday is:
head: marvel select thanos
torso: ml first appearance hulk
legs: ml select thanos
arms: ml face off hulk
bones: mix of fixit sculpt and protrustions from dc direct doomsday.
hair: fibers from my rug that my cat just happen to have torn up.

With superman I also have been wanting to do this just right to make him look like when he died. But here also I tried to give it a real sense. I think it turned out great.
superman is:
head: dc direct infinite crisis superman
torso: wwe rutheless aggression deluxe randy orton
arms: wwe 2000 edge figure
legs: wwe rutheless aggression deluxe edge
the remains of his upper out fit is real fabric...

bonus for both figures is that they both retain they articulation.

Wow your DC stuff is great. I love how Superman got beat up and is all bloody. But the blood is kinda thick in a good way cause it goes well.
But a technique I learned is to pool tiny water drops on the fig and then add small amounts of red paint. When the water drys you are left with a natural blood flow.
