The lighting was a bit off for the images submitted the first time..

I am EXHAUSTED!!! But thank goodness I am done. This little guy took three weeks of my life. I could not do anything else but finish him as this Venom was more of an itch. :)

It started when I thought I had the right parts to pull off an Flash Thompson Venom. I even bought a GI Joe figure for the vest, which I decided not to use anyway, Sheesh.

I took a look at a lot of different Agent Venom images and saw certain aspects that I like from each rendition. I took the GI Joe vest and did a trial fit, and said, I'll just do a little sculpt and see if it fills in the gaps here and there. And what I ended up with was a FULL on sculpt marathon.

I was in for a battle as this was my second attempt at sculpting, well, pretty much anything. My first sculpting attempt was Warpath's Gloves and Bracers.

I kid you not, I sculpted the
1. FLAK VEST (front and back) - the portion on the mouth was a challenge

2. some FACIAL FEATURES- I've seen some images of Agent Venom where you could see some of the facial features being a bit more obvious.

3. Articulated Shoulder Shields (A.S.S.) :) - they move with the shoulders and allow him articulation.

4. Bracers and Shin Guards and THIGH ARMOR - I added some spikes to the rest of the figure as well, it's like the symbiote is just waiting for Flash to loose control.

5. And yes, I sculpted the WEB-SHOOTERS too :)

- I used magnets for his 357 Magnum holster and the belt is also removable via magnets.
- the knee pads are also removable - kept them "normal" as I wanted them to retain the "tactical feel"
- magnets for the .45 holster.

Paints are a mix of metallic black, flat black, a mix of engine gray and gloss black applied via brush.

WHEW!! I need a break. my hands and back were literally aching after every session spent with this custom. I wanted to add more accessories and details but I was really tired. :( Maybe next time.

I hope you guys like him as much as I (ughh) enjoyed making him.

Comments are always very welcome.

Glory to God and have a meaningful holiday season. Cheers.

this is absolutely perfect. when I started my custom this week I constantly referred to yours. I wish I had your sculpting skills

Thanks for the kind words man.
I'm still learning in terms of sculpting.
I'm sure your agent venom is going to turn out great, the character is such an interesting design.

Once again, amazingly awesome job. So cool that you can make these so small and so well!
fireflamespit - Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Thanks Davey I like this scale because the figures are easy to display and they don't consume much clay and paint.
spidey_mvc - Tuesday, February 26, 2013

what the #%*$ man the best Flash Thompson Venom yet! great job man and I reaally love those A.S.Ses and BTW you deserve a vacation
fireflamespit - Tuesday, February 26, 2013
thanks CosmicKid dude. I'm glad you like the A.S.Ses, great thing about the A.S.Ses is that it moves independently so you can hit good poses

I had to say again how good this is. I really wanted to give this a try after seeing yours but there is no way I'd be able to duplicate this to your level of detail. Really great work (particularly for your second time sculpting puts me to shame!!!) Awesome!
fireflamespit - Sunday, December 30, 2012
Iron Will, brother! I am humbled by your appreciation.
I had Kneadite tape sitting around for nearly two years in my toolbox before I gave it a go a couple of months back.
I say you go ahead and give it a try, it might take more time than usual, but it will be worth it dude.
Iron Will - Sunday, December 30, 2012
If and or when (I personally think you should keep it)you ebay this let me know, because I may have to go for this one! I have only bought one other person's custom and that was to see how they did a wire framed cape. I can definitely say I want that Venom lol!!
fireflamespit - Sunday, December 30, 2012
I am leaning towards following your advice (keeping it)
Until I can make another one, I might be holding onto this one. I am planning on adding more accessoriea to this one when the time permits.

Thanks man, im glad you appreciate the small things
sibalung - Thursday, December 20, 2012
haha..nice Agent Venom!!
I got another question master, about that shoulder pad armor...
-using what materials?
-if it reduces the movement of shoulder articulation?
(sory for my bad english, I need to learn something from the master.. )
fireflamespit - Thursday, December 20, 2012
Thanks for the kind and humbling words, sibalung.
I don't consider myself a master yet as I am still learning.
Now about your questions,
A. I used some iron man shoulders and some epoxy
B. it doesn't really limit the articulation, but you'll have to move the shoulder pad and the shoulder joint when you are trying to pose him.

fireflamespit - Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Thank you for your kind words.
I actually got the new Marvel Select Agent Venom. I was trying to copy some of the elements but I went off in a different direction as I was working on this Marvel Universe version.
Again, thanks a bunch
NeCrollector - Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Masterful job, brother! Much respect for the amount of detail packed into this marvel! Beautifully executed!
fireflamespit - Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Thanks a bunch Necro-dude.
I was going for more accessories and details but I was literally exhausted. And it was just too involving that I am now rushing decorations for Christmas

savage venom custom love the sculpting on the chest
fireflamespit - Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Thanks mistersims. I wanted to post other sculpt WIP pictures for the bracers and other elements but it wouldn't fit into all the frames. Again, thanks.
Iron Will - Tuesday, December 18, 2012
I said it before this is outstanding!! I will go on record and say that this is the best Venom (Flash) custom or retail period!! Really well done. I know we hear this a lot in the custom world but there is no doubt you should be working for Hasbro!
fireflamespit - Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Thanks man, I really appreciate what you've just said and I am just happy you guys enjoy this project.
