This is a Green Lantern concept that I originally came up with about a year ago or so when the Figurerealm had a Green Lantern contest. I was stumped for ideas and by the time I came up with a sketch that I liked there were just a few days left for the submission deadline. My favorite version of GL is the "Kingdom Come" Alan Scott, so I initially thought I would make a custom of him during the period somewhere between his stint as the "Sentinel" and the Kingdom Come story arc. As the deadline was fast approaching, I decided not to pursue it, but then I kept coming across the sketch again and again, so I decided I would try a "quickie". I wasn't totally sold on this design, so I thought I would just take a different approach than what I would have normally done. I decided to use a base figure that I am really not particularly fond of, the "Black Panther". The Black Panther figure looks kind of deformed to me, with the rounded off shoulders, small chest, and the severe case of hip displasia. However, the texture of the BP body kind of took on an alienish look when I applied the green paint. I wanted to make a little bit of a different looking Green Lantern, but also maintain a streamlined, traditional look. I also thought it would be cool for him to have a beard, so I used a ML "Sentry" variant figure head for the beard, the cowl/mask is from a DC "Batman" and the hair was sculpted with AVES Fixit sculpt. The gauntlet style gloves were made with thin plastic from (of all things) a yogurt cup. I wanted some biker-style boots, so I sculpted them and made some straps and used some buckles from a Sleepy Hollow "Headless Horseman". The jewel in the center of the chest is from my daughter's "Barbie" collection, I think? Alan Scott's hair is/was blond as the Sentinel, but it was stark white for the Kindom Come arc. I didn't want to make him look old, and I thought blond hair with a beard and green mask would just make him look too much like Green Arrow, so I scrapped the Alan Scott idea and I am sorry to say that I don't have any original ideas for an origin or story for this custom. But nevertheless, I like the moniker of "Green Sentinel", so that's what I'm calling this one. I figure he's a distinguished member of the GL Corps "honor guard", and is not assigned to any specific sector, but has broad authority and explores the universe. His five year mission....whoops!, I started waxing like William Shatner there for a sec...Anyways, here it is, no where near in time for the contest. But overall, I am pretty happy with how it came out.
