My interpretation of Marvel Comics Ares,(currently deceased)Greek God of War and anti-hero!Why Hasbro hasn't produced a 3 3/4 inch figure of this guy,I'll never know!This guy is a fan and customizer favorite for sure!This was a tough one to get together for some reason-looking for the correct parts,many,many repaints of the breast plate skull(I hand painted that little fella)and just generally making him right,or at least to suit me.Have to say,I'm really happy with the end result,differences from comic version and all.
I've learned that customizing is full of "happy accidents" and sometimes it's best to follow your creative instincts.Ares here is most certainly a product of those accidents!Most,if not all,of my customs evolve as I'm creating them,and often have differences from the source material,so my work reflects my interpretation of the characters.So,please remember,the figure may not look 100% like the comic or movie version,but I always do my best to capture the essence of the character.
Quite often I see other customizers figures and I'm in awe of their work and have to make one of my own!In those cases,I hope the original customizer realizes that imitation is the ultimate form of flattery,and I really am paying them a very sincere compliment.In cases where I know who the original customizer is,I will always give credit where it is due.
I welcome all comments and critiques of my work,and will give any additional details of my recipes if anyone would like to make a similar figure of their own.Thanks for taking the time to check out my creations!
