Yeah, still trying to perfect the Cavill figures! This is a 7-inch statue/figure...I guess it could be a "staction figure". Made from a NECA Dolph Lundgren Drago figure with a wrestler's head that was re-sculpted and the ENTIRE surface of the suit has been sculpted, again using my ball stylus and sewing needle tools. I think this time, I got REALLY close to total accuracy in terms of sculpt and paint colors. The upper portion of the cape is sculpted while the cape itself is cloth.

Other than the head, there is NO poseability, but the head tilts left, right, up, and down, and of course it rotates too so you can kinda pose him in a variety of looks/positions. He'll be on eBay by the end of today.

Thanks for looking and I always appreciate your comments!

I'm about to start work on a new Deathstroke custom that will have similar armor sculpting. Did you really just take a pen and start popping each divet in the suit or did you roll something over it to get that pattern?

Hey - I actually pressed in each dot individually. Rolling it would have been too uneven and sometimes distorts the sculpting material. It's VERY tedious work to be sure and I just got commissioned to make ANOTHER one believe it or not! So I'll be cranking that one out as soon as I can. But yeah I just use a very small ball stylus, but I suppose a dried out pen tip would work just as well.
