Scarlet Spider 02-12-2008
Hello everybody, today we have my version of the Scarlet Spider. I had an original Toybiz Scarlet Spider, but I didn't like the articulation in it. I decided to make my own. My last custom was Night Crawler, and after finishing him, I decided I wanted to use his body for the SS instead.
So I took off all his limbs and his custom head and I replaced it with a LCBH Star head, ML Bullseye arms, and ML Ice Man legs and removed the X that I sculpted on the chest. I dremelled down the eyebrows and trimmed the shoulder pads. Had to fix his buttocks from where NC's tail was. I then sculpted the calves to make them bigger and more proportional to the figure. Next I sculpted the head, eyes, hood, webshooters, ankle straps, and belt.
Started with a base coat of all black. Dry brushed the red suit and blue hoodie. Hand painted the eyes and spider on the chest. Then finished the belt, webshooters, and ankle straps. The spider on the chest was a bit of a challenge, but I wanted it to look like the comics. I found NC's body a good fit to be able to pull it off, because it gave me enough room to work and no worry the articulation messing it up.
Hope everyone likes it.
