There are so many brilliant Hydromans..erm 'Hydromen' (?) on here that I can't hope to compete with! So I decided to keep him plain and simply - with a slight nod to the 90's cartoon show.

I decided against using the standard Banshee head - and so I bought a generic 'hero' head from a shop on line - and sculpted the hair myself.

The body was a WWE wrestler. I decided the bulk and frame was perfect - so I just gave him his iconic black tee-shirt and a pair of jeans - and Bob's (or rather Ben's) your uncle!

I DID have a pair of the water-hands from the 90's figure, but decided in the end just to paint his actual ones with a water effect - as if he was just gearing up for a fight with everyone's favourite Webhead.

Simple - but I'm rather pleased with the actual likeness.

I like it. Did you paint several shades of blue for the water effect?

Thanks - yeah, I used humbrol - a light blue, dark blue and white and 'mixed' them on his arms. I've since covered him with a matt varnish - and a gloss varnish on his arms to simulate water - and modelled a base for him - sculpted water with a similar technique to his arms. It looks really quite effective - I'll upload a couple more photos at some point. I appreciate the comment - especially in view of all the other brilliant HM's on here!
