I was like, fine i'll just mod him a little bit...
WELL little did I know!
Let's play the game again and try to guess "What did I do on this figure!"(audience clap) Where correct answers grant fake points that are worth nothing at all! (although it would be simpler to guess which part of Chris Evans I did NOT touch with my tool ;

well, thanks everyone for playing! i'll try to explain the mods i've done, although pictures would be much easier and looking at the pics i selected they do not show a lot of things XD so you can find me in fb, i'm Hugo Dourado, the good looking one :)

Well, first lemme defend Hasbro a bit. I think it's a very good figure (all the Avengers are) And i think any inaccuracies come from concept, I'm pretty sure they did the best with the material they had. They probably had to sculpt the characters before the actors did even get in suit. And of course there's cost issues that we know why we custom paint :) that said, let's get to the "recipe"

Ok. The unmasked head - I just sculpted from scratch. Like, put some putty over the neck and spent hours till i decided it was recognizable enough and not spend the rest of my life on it :)

Masked head - i like the likeness on the original, but there are some things that can be improved, like the helm looking like its on top of his head and not part of his skull and the jaw being too long. so, re-sculpted it entirely on top (A, wings)also details on the back and side that are not present and you cannot see on these pics (XD i amaze myself) which gets us to the...

Neck - puny neck he had, some mass to it, so his head doesn't look so far from it on the side (a picture would really help...look at your figure or head up to a cap review) interesting thing on the neck is also my decision to not make a hanging cowl for the unmasked head, since they cheated it on the movie, he would have to have an alternate neck too (in the movie he's got fabric that goes into the metal helm, but when he is unmasked, they just pretend it's a complete cowl - well, anyway, blue neck and skin neck - I decided to give him in between, so it feels like - ah, whatever, you all just hate me for not making a the hanging cowl now that i mentioned :)

Torso - chest - very important area to show one's mass, but usually mistakenly (used), making a batman TAS look, i cut in to give him the silhouette chris worked so hard to be able to indulge us with
inverted (upside down) shoulder balls so they're more outwards (coincidence) and sculpted over them
V thingies on top - those are flexible, just like my cape technique - EVA heat molded by hand, but also sculpted the chest and trap patterns (with texture) to match seamlessly
then the back (that you can only see on my fb) with everything re-sculpted to match his movie appearance

belt - YES - you though we wouldn't notice HASBRO, but I did, you gave us only 2 pouches each side(4) when there are actually 4(8)(I only did 3 (6)cause they're over sized and wouldn't fit, and i like them oversized, and didn't want to re-do all of them XD)

arms - did anyone notice his gloves are like, backwards? i turned the hands, gaunts aligned to back (i was lazy, but one could add an articulation point there) and re-sculpted to match movie design, also, i wanted to give him a "commanding hand" so i put a metal pin on both his index and middle on the right and since the hand is so rubbery, you could say they're kinda articulated (well, not really, but i had both pointing and bent middle back a bit later for a more natural trigger hand)

crotch - well, i don't wanna get into the nasty details, but if you seen the hasbro figure, you know there's a bit too much hanging there :) so, re-sculpted and butt (yes, important - see chest)

legs - again silhouette, he's got more stretchy than baggy pants, so, re-sculpted, also, his knees sit upside down originally (check you figure) instead of looking like \ they look like / (XD) you can tell on the first pic - i fixed them cutting from the lower legs - that the boots sit too high, his boots shouldn't end right under his knees, but a bit below (and they have like a loooong nothing happening in the middle, seems almost like they extend them) so, yeah, i didn't really want to, but i would not be able to live with myself if i didn't - i re-sculpted the boots whole, well, not the soles and the tip of the foot, and pants pattern from boots to knee

hmmm, is that it? i guess, idk, check the pic on fb and lemme know if there was something i forgot or you didn't understand
and thanks again for looking! :)



ps: HASBRO...i'm getting impatient, i don't really WANT to make a mark VII, will i HAVE to? (i'd really rather make a mech test tony stark @_@)

wow good job

daredevil96's Sidekick Studio - Friday, September 28, 2012
Im guessing,
- The entire legs
- The entire crotch
- Both ball joints
- Every part of the boots including the straps
- Not his chest but his shoulders, collar bone and his scapula area?
- The silver zippers on his shoulders
- You sculpted on the back of his wrist cufffs t put in those seams
- You sculpted over all the joint holes
- The collar you sculpted
- You swapped his hands
- That doesn't look like the original head but you sculpted under his eyes and almost every part of the helmet -- and the unmasked head looks sculpted over but you did his hair
- Last you painted him and even put those blue patterns in his hands.
Did I miss any?
grungethemovie - Sunday, September 30, 2012
hmm, good guess, but I'll try to be more specific on the description, but I guess you guessed almost everything right
fastfreddie - Friday, September 28, 2012
I actually like this better than the real Chris Evans as Cap. Looks better for sure!
grungethemovie - Sunday, September 30, 2012
XD that comment doesn't make sense, and yet I understand what you mean, and appreciate it
The Watcher - Friday, September 28, 2012
I'm not sure what all you did, but it worked! Great Cap!!
grungethemovie - Sunday, September 30, 2012
hahaha
the best work is the obvious that you can't point out huh? :P
thank you
Rogue - Friday, September 28, 2012
Making us do the work of guessing eh? Hmm well it seems to be some sort of figure you put together... Yep that's about it.. Good job he looks great! As for you last picture: "Hulk smash fangirl's man, fangirl get very angry!!" *Fangirl smashes Hulk*
Rogue
grungethemovie - Sunday, September 30, 2012
I don't get what you mean with "some sort of figure you put together" but thanks, and don't worry it's a smash out of love, it's all for the audience laughter (shhh can I tell you a secret? cap is not really down there, but don't tell anyone, it's a magic trick)
Rogue - Sunday, September 30, 2012
I was answering your challenge much like Capt answered Starks question in the movie with "it seems run on electricity." in other words no idea what you used on this figure.. Yeah I'm geeky like that, lol!
And I'm glad Capt wasn't hurt in the filming of your gag.
Rogue
grungethemovie - Monday, October 1, 2012
XD I love ya, I thought it would be something like that but you never know, right?
Purity - Friday, September 28, 2012
MAN! Every Avengers figure you make is like one of, if not the best Avengers custom on here! Holy Crap! These are SO much better than the originals! These make me glad I'm a fan of yours! Please for the love of all that is holy, tell us the recipe! You should take into SERIOUS consideration of casting your head sculpts and selling them!
grungethemovie - Sunday, September 30, 2012
thank you, I'm flattered to have someone call oneself a fan of mine I'll try to explain the recipe, and for the head casts I"M LOOKING INTO IT
Purity - Monday, October 1, 2012
You're welcome! And, yeah I love your work!You're definitely becoming one of my favorite customizers! And if you ever decide to cast the head sculpts you do, I will DEFINITELY buy some! Your work is phenomenal.
