Batman - Night Shadow Batman - Statue conversion Custom Statue / Bust

 
 
Custom #:9766  
Name:Batman - Night Shadow Batman - Statue conversion
Custom Type:Statue / Bust
Toy Series:Batman
Creator:GothamDOD  
Date Added:September 8, 2008
Base Figure:10" WildCATS Grifter
Height:14.00 inches
This started as a 10" Wild CATS Grifter.
The top of his head was cut out off and re sculpted into the cowl.
straps on chest were ground off and re sculpted.
I the liked the trench coat look, so I went for a Coat/Cape hybrid.
The ribbed fabric inside the collar was ground down smooth, rolled up sleeves were changed to tuck smoothly inside the gauntlets, a
scalloped edge was added on to the bottom, and the coat-belt was removed
and sculpted smooth. Gauntlet "spikes" were made from styrene. Then all
joints were glued and filled. Some of the low spots were filled with Bondo spot filler putty, sanded, then sprayed with auto primer, and given a light final sanding (the bondo spot putty is the red areas showing through the primer in the WIP).
the base is made from wood and molding then textured with spackle.
The iron work is just wood doweling.

Thanks for all of the comments- I really appreciate them!
I've just been on the lookout for anything I think would make an interesting version of Batman.
When I found the Grifter, The mask made me think of some of the versions of Batman (and Batgirl) where they wear similar masks. The coat just kinda evolved- I liked the big collar and thought it would give him a bit of a Dracula feel.
Thanks again.

Your customizing style is awesome, painting artistry is fenomenal man. I have that Grifter but would have never thought of doing that. Can't wait to see your next custom.
