Dr.Henry"Hank" McCoy. What more can I say? Im just upset that not even Marvel Select had the courage to make a movie based action figure. Well here is an attempt at making BEAST.
I take my "Q" from once again ringomendoza who did his out of a wolfman, Blain3 who also made his out of a wolfman and finally I believe the originator was Xfan. You guys come up with good base figures and ideas for us all to use. That said....
head- Mezco the wolfman
waist and thighs-ML colossus
lower shins-Marvel Select the wolverine
This was a challange of a custom. First, making all the parts fit. Wolfmans face was an excellent but, he had the dog looking snout sticking out and his facial hair was all over the place. Task 1 was to sand down the snout, hair and nose. I then carved a new mouth. I used aves to sculpt a new nose fix the sideburn hair and eyebrows.
I then proceeded to attack the pants sculpting the lower pants and adding pant effect to the upper thighs as colossus was way to muscular. When I was happy enough to move on I began painting..I need much practice on blue skin tones. I repainted it 3 times before i was comfortable.
I used the first official image of beast as my model to follow as seen in the picture.
Well thanks for looking guys.
