I knew I wanted to enter this contest ever since I saw the announcement. I'm a big jokester at heart and love custom figures.. So for the next few days I was racking my brain trying to come up with a solid idea. Then out of the blue some friends of mine called and asked me if I wanted to check out the seasonal Halloween store across town. I went with them and while I was browsing I came across this Alien doll/figure. We all had a good laugh at him but something about this thing was so ugly it held my interest longer then the rest of my pals. Then while starring at the thing it hit me like a ton of whoopee cushions. What if Superman was an "alien-alien"? Like a 'real' Grey weird alien. Like all the circumstances of Superman's origins were pretty much the same he just happened to look like a "Space" Alien from Area 51. The seed was planted and a few dollars later the Alien was purchased. I sculpted an outfit for him with Aves Apoxie sculpt. His belt is styrene and his cape is a foam material.
I gotta tell you when he was completed it was a bit freaky looking at him. Thanks for checking it out!!!

Congrats! The S you made looks really sharp! I remember from comics, the title was Superman/Batman Enemies Among Us, that story also had a similar idea that Supes looked alien. "K.E. phone home"

Ill have to check that out! The S on his chest was actually cut from a Superman water gun type of toy.

This is a really neat, and comical, alternate take on the Superman character. Realistically, it would be rather unlikely that someone from another planet (Krypton) would look just like us humans, so, an inhuman Superman is entirely appropriate in my eyes. Your custom is my top pick for this challenge, well done!
Kevlar Palsh - Tuesday, October 8, 2013
Thanks Patraw. Appreciated.

A really clever concept and brilliant execution; the texture of the outfit is very realistic and I love the paints. Was the S shield sculpted? It looks incredibly sharp!
Kevlar Palsh - Tuesday, October 8, 2013
Thanks! The S shield on his chest was cut off a Superman watergun toy thing.

NOW THIS IS SO BRILLIANT
Scary due to details and an awesome metaphor of
what Superman really is an extra terrestrial from
another planet ...without the handsome look
Kevlar Palsh - Tuesday, October 8, 2013
Thanks Bootleg!! Thats was exactly the idea I was going for. BTW, I loved your Pillman dude!
