I love Spider-Man lol. And so does my favorite customer! He sent me a pic of a costume design taken from the internet and asked if I could replicate it. The differences are very subtle: The chest, back and gloves all differ from the classic look and he has added visible wrist shooters.

I started originally with a Spidey Classics Spider-Man but with a massive rookie mistake I forgot hard plastic doesn't bend with heat! After snapping the torso, I took to using the Classics head with the McFarlane body.

Took him completely apart, split his crotch (ouch!) and dremmeled him within an inch of his life. As many of us know, this figure is a nightmare for paint rub as the joints are all so flush, so it took a while to change this. Dremmeled his face to change the eyes then his chest spider and fixit-sculped his back to remove the old symbol. I then used Fixit-Sculpt for the wrist shooters (based on the Marc Webb's film) and undercoated him white. Base coated dark blue and red and then highlighted with thinned lighter layers. Washed in the shadows and inked the web lines and dullcoated. Finally finished his head and then gloss coated his eyes and wrist shooter buttons.

You can never have too many Spideys! :0)

Thanks for looking all!

Jin's right, those spider symbols are crazy good. I always like that head and build my own Spider-man with it. Spidey is like Batman in that everyone needs to make their own perfect one. This is a really nice one.

Cheers man! The pics aren't too clear with the back spider but it sure took some time to get some clean outlines of the design! Thanks again!

Those colors are amazing! Awesome spidey! was wondering what paints you use
Jaiman - Sunday, April 14, 2013
Cheers dude! I use Citadel acrylic paints. I find Lots of thinned layers tends to build up and blend the colours very subtly. Thanks for taking the time to comment!
