Here's my love, Morbius the Living Vampire in his '90s outfit!
I used a ML Gambit and sculpted lots of details. I looked at lots of pictures to get everything right on hte outfit and considering it looks a bit different in different pictures, I think I did a good job at at least capturing it.
I used a ML Banshee head, that I also modified a great deal. I tried my best at making his facial features similar to the pcitures but it was hard! It came out better than I had thought though, so I'm very happy with it. I was waiting on a Morbius head sculpt from Deadeye when he offered to do it, but I got tired of waiting and tried sculpting it myself, and I never would have expected it to come out this close to what I was going for!
The "cape" or whatever it could be called, I made out of paper. I thought of how the Spider-Man figures have net attached by rubber strings at the hand, shoulder and waist, so I took that idea and it turned out great, I'm happy I didn't just glue it to his arms like I had thought first!
The hair is from a red female head that I don't know where it's from.

I'm REALLY happy with this one, I think it's like the best I've done, so I'm satisfied.
It probably isn't the last Morbius I do though, I'll want a good one for my Spider-Man shelf too, and we'll see if I get that head from Deadeye to use on that one.

It's too bad about the camera and lighting though, the pictures don't come out as clear as I would have wanted, but maybe I can fix that sometime.

Now tell me what you think!

Great sculpting !!!! I have also been surprised at how well some of my sculpting has turned out. It just shows a little patience and practice will pay off. I really love how well you sculpted the face. Great job. Nice paint apps too.
