Great depiction of the original Human Torch. I like the approach you took with showing it was in fact Jim but making the figure more visually interesting than just having him stand there in red tights by adding the sculpted flames and a sort of mid transformation look. Nice work from you as usual, my friend.

This is awesome. Especially since you put him together with different parts that work and not instead of another Torch. The head choice was excellent.

thanks mp. luckily I had picked up a cast of that head when I got a bunch of stuff from the casting cave. I do actually have an extra ffc torch figure in my fodder bin, but I really wanted to differentiate him from the johnny storm torch, so I kept digging til I found other parts I thought would work better. I was afraid hed be too skinny at first, but after the flames were sculpted it kinda filled him out.

Yup, this works really well. What you use to sculpt the flames?

thanks h.g., I use aves fixit sculpt for all my sculpting needs. I went searching online for a flame sculpting tutorial and found a good one on a warhammer site. glad you like it.

Awesome custom, my friend! I really like the paint job on his custom...vibrant and striking

thanks necro. I went back and forth on how to paint him. I studied alex ross's version from the marvels book and tried to follow the pallet he used. reds into orange, with a yellowy orange then straight into white with no true yellows in it.
