Hello Realmers I am back and I have to say it feels great. Life has been a little hectic these last months but now things have stabilized. It felt wonderful to get back to the workstation and actually make something new. Here is my latest offering. Mer-man!!!
He is heavily influenced by the incredible Mer-man made by Madtinker. I tried to come up with a different base figure but was unable. Parasite was just a perfect base. He had a great head and the torso was huge and imposing. I have to say that re-imaging Mer-man was really difficult. In the classic cartoon as well as the Mike Young 200x this character was made more as comic relief than a formidable opponent for He-man. I wanted to give him a more fearsome look and I thought Madtinker nailed this look with his custom. But I wanted to change it up a little and put my spin on it. So I made a few changes, like painting his face with the yellow mask and giving him the coral and fins on his arms.
As always I REALLY appreciate the views and the awesome comments. I am extremely humbled by both. For the details on how I made him and Wip pic check out my Custom Workbench thread.
