As what is probably the only Pitt based Hulk I'm ever gonna make, I really wanted to go all out. The 2 weak points of the body for me were the tiny bodybuilder's waist and the fact that this guy could tie his shoes without bending over. I totally resculpted the mid-section and the waist. (after several failed attempts, mind you) The arms both got cut 1/2 inch shorter and the forearms were sculpted in. The veining was done with resin dragged along on a pin as it was congealing. Each finger and toe was cut off and sculpted individually.
The head was cast from the Art Asylum statue. It has 2 holes for different heights. A higher one for "pissed off" and a lower one for "really pissed off" I built a small scaffold to suspend the statue upsidedown while the rubber cured. The first mold included the neck and shoulders due to the shape of the original sculpt, so I had to bring it down to a managable shape. It also got a bit air bound at the hair and in the mouth so I had to resculpt the tongue, teeth and hair. The belt was a last minute addition that I think says "I'm Dr. Bruce Banner and these were my own pants that weren't torn up until 20 minutes ago when these motherf#%@*&s showed up!!" All original articulation remains intact and there is absolutely 0 paintrub anywhere on the completed figure. It took a very long time to get just the right shade of green and I'm not exagerating when I say that there are probably 15 different coats of paint on this guy. That's not including the sealer coats between colors either. Oh, and the finger and toe nails are all semi-gloss varnished.
I'm really psyched with how this came out and I hope you like it as much as I do. Good luck to everybody!
