My movie concept version of Malekith the Accursed,ruler of The Dark Elves of Svartalfheim and thorn in the side of Thor,The God of Thunder.I got a real bug to create this guy a few months back,before Malekith was the confirmed villain for Thor:The Dark World,and decided to create what I thought a movie version of the character might look like.After seeing the photos of Christopher Eccleston as Malekith,I was a little bit disappointed,so I've got to admit I wish they had gotten closer to something resembling the comic or possibly even similar to my creation.Lots of trial and error and fine detail work on this guy,but well worth it,I'm pretty happy with the end result.
I've definitely learned that customizing is often a series of "happy accidents",and this guy is a product of them for sure!Sometimes it's best to follow your creative instincts and see where they take you!Most,if not all,of my customs evolve as I'm working on them,and more often than not 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!
