Myconid (Patraw) Custom Action Figure

Custom #:43963  
Name:Myconid (Patraw)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Dungeons and Dragons
Date Added:October 31, 2012
Base Figure:Movie Spawn
Height:7.50 inches
A contest to honor one of the Realm's true master artists, Patraw? I'm in!

There are so many impressive/inspiring Patraw pieces to choose from. I finally decided for Patraw's beautifully crafted Myconid (Challenge Custom) figure.

I tried my best to be true to both the reference art that Patraw posted in his Myconid submission as well as his amazing work-of-art, but with my own added twist.

Body - A movie Spawn with head and hands removed. I felt the details on this figure were perfectly fungus-like. Sculpted half the body to make it look less 'spawnish' while trying to keep as many of the intricate details that this figure already had.
Hands - A set of old TMNT hands were used.
Head - Sculpted the face. Created a frame using the top of a water bottle, MOTUC Sy-Klone's red shield, a straw and some blister plastic. Then, completed sculpted over this frame using Aves Apoxie, packing in as much detail as I could. The sculpting was done over several days and in layers.

A true test in patience and my most ambitious sculpting project yet, it was a true pleasure to work on this mushroom dude to pay homage to an amazing artist, whose work I truly respect and love.

Completed 12/31/2012.

Thanks for checking Myconid out. I hope you all like him.

Dude this is insane... the sculpting is fantastic. Sculpting is something I wish I could do. The paintwork is flawless. Excellent work.

Thank you so much, CYCLONE_06!
I'm so happy that my take on Patraw's awesome Myconid custom has been so well received by fellow Realmers
bet1 - Tuesday, November 13, 2012
WOW man, That is VERY impressive!!! Super fine sculpting and and a brilliantly creative armature!!!
NeCrollector - Wednesday, November 14, 2012
Hey bet1
Always good hearing from you, my friend! The correct armature was hard to come up with. I knew I was going to use Syklone's circle weapon, but didn't know how I was going to create the dome. Once I found the right water bottle, it all came together. Thanks so much for your comment, brother.
ManyMack Creationz - Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Most definitely a worthy winner, you made a great scaled up representation of Patraw's masterpiece. Using Syclones disc as a base was genius!! Congrats dude!!

Dude, you're awesome! Congratulations!
NeCrollector - Friday, November 9, 2012
Hey Darth! Thank you so much, brother! There are so many cool Patraw works-of-art, that it was difficult to choose just one. I was between working on Patraw's Massimiliano Frezzato's T.M.N.T. figure or Patraw's Myconid figure. I'm happy I went with Myconid.

Thanks, Jan14 I don't know about awesome, dude...I'm just inspired by all the amazing artists on the Realm to do the best I can at what I love. Thanks, brother.

Buddy, I want to congratulate you on this awesome figure! Incredible job!
NeCrollector - Thursday, November 8, 2012
Thanks, brother.
This homage was a great thing the Realm did for a fellow Realmer that's contributed so much to this awesome site.
Always a pleasure to hear from you, REBNOR.

Thanks brother..I was actually blown away too with the sculpts & details you have done here..Your winning entry is just looking at it, its like bringing you to another world.Makes me really feel where he came from and what he is.
NeCrollector - Sunday, November 11, 2012
Wow, brother, thanks again. If he's able to mentally transport you to an imaginary realm, then you've just made me super happy. I'm always trying to achieve that with my customs. THANK you so much!
Patraw - Thursday, November 8, 2012
Congratulations on taking first place gold!

I noticed a number of people commented about this figure being larger than two inches, but, if you read the rules for this challenge again, you'll see that making bigger figures was a legal option.
NeCrollector - Thursday, November 8, 2012
Thanks, Patraw!
fastfreddie - Thursday, November 8, 2012
I, for one, definitely missed that... sorry!
