Base Figure:DC Alex Ross Gorilla Grodd
Height:6.00 inches
Gorilla Grodd, AKA Super-Gorilla Grodd. Easy cut, repose, fill, paint. I liked the yelly face but wanted more action, so tilted him way back for a "Come and get me, heroes!" or "I will conquer the world!" or just a primal scream. I filled the gaps with scrap plastic and then Concrete Patch (Home Depot) roughed in shaggy. The prop rod is offset under one shoulder blade so hidden by his leg when viewed from the front. Painted with dark gray, then progressively lighter grays here and there, until a final dry wash of very light gray in highlight spots. Also painted on nipples. I like that he's big as a mountain, very scary, and that's in addition to his super-genius mind control.

Great paint job, dude! Very nice!

I should have mentioned that, trying to match the original colors, I kept stirring grays and not getting them and going crazy. Finally I studied the actual figure and realized it's mostly painted in GREEN-gray. Sometimes we miss the obvious by not looking.

Awesome Grodd, dude. And I love the shot with Thor and Flash.
