Thread: July - Heroes & Villains

  1. #1

    Default July - Heroes & Villains

    Hey Guys,..

    I know it's a bit early for this one, but I wanted to give enough notice for everyone to order their pieces (if need be). Anyways,.. as the title says,.. the theme for this round will be "Heroes & Villains"!!! Traditional heroes models are, of course, accepted. Feel free to let your imagination run wild. While my initial thought is comic book characters,.. this is by no means an "absolute". Fantasy or sci-fi heroes will do just as good. And don't feel trapped by heroes either,.. if villains are more your thing, then by all means go with the villain of your choice. Also,.. I will be allowing "mash-ups".

    "But Webmonkey,.. what's a mash-up??",... I'm glad you asked!! Mash-ups are a simple way for people to use existing models. (And therefore not have to spend a lot of cash. Because, let's face it,.. we aren't all made of money). The point of a mash-up is to take an existing model and paint it up like something that it's not. For Example: Got a extra space marine floating around?? paint him up to look like Captain America,.... Got a spare Warjack??, Do you think it would look cool as Iron Man???,... What about that Necron Nightbringer??,.. with a few easy mods, it might be a rather cool Batman,... etc, etc etc. Let your mind go wild. The sky's the limit!!!

    This one will run July 1st to the 31st (with a possible extension to Aug. 15th if the majority of people need more time). Otherwise, all the rules are the same as all the other contests. If any of you are new here and need further explanation, feel free to ask. I, or any of the other regulars, will be happy to explain things. As always, I'll start the list off with my own name,.. (just copy and paste the list into a new reply, and add your name to the bottom)

    I will definitely have time to do this one.

    Mash-up sounds really appealing. I have a Deadzone 1st generation plague that will do as Abomination or Hulk, or maybe a Helldorado Greater Demon of Wrath.

    I'd like to join in, but I'm having a real decision paralysis about what to make for it. Advice/votes appreciated!

    So far my thoughts are:

    1. Wolverine in 'classic' yellow costume
    2. Astro Boy grown up and fallen on hard times
    3. Hulk protecting Betty Ross from an unseen attacker
    4. Kitty Pryde in a half-phased fight/embrace with wolverine (it makes sense in my head, anyway)
    5. Cyclops leaping into the air and directing an optic blast at the ground/an enemy reduced to bones and ash
    6. A bust of the Joker peeling off his face (like the Death of a Family storyline)

    As you can see, too many scenes to choose from!

    I like the idea of 2 and 6. Maybe 2 a bit more.
    Forgot, that it works again.

    Either of the wolverine ideas get my vote, he's the best there is at what he does

    yep, we're not helpful,


    but bgcdazzler could do the following too:
    In a ruined street the heroes battle. On the wall there is a graffiti of Joker peeling off his face. Before it a Yellow costumed Wolverine hugs Kitty,
    while in the middle cyclops blasts one of the attackers. The blast makes a lot of rubble that flies partly toward Betty Ross (who is she btw?) protected by the Hulk by jumping between the flying rubble and Betty.
    Watching all this from the corner(or alley entrance) is a homeless guy, who is in reality Astro Boy.

    So all 6 in a nice little scene. I'm sure the whole diorama won't take more than a day to do for bgcdazzler. :P

    You can always take your decision based on what you want to practice/improve

    Well this looks like an opportunity to practice regular male sculps with a hint of manga style....

    Do you want to practice sculpting all the muscular groups from a guy like him?

    Do not know who is her but she sounds like if she is a cat-woman relative so... woman body sculpt practie

    So here we have not so muscular man (compared to hulk) with some gadgets on his head... (the optic blast is a think I cannot se how would be sculpted though... xP

    Another opportunity for sculpting a bust, a human one this time... I bet for this approach

    Im just gonna throw a #7 in the mix... Hulk vs wolverine I believe Hulk was one of wolverines first (maybe even the first?) targets when he was part of weapon x, googling Hulk vs wolverine led to some lovely images of Hulk ripping wolverine clean in half, I'm sure he got better though

    Glad to see there's a consensus on the best one to do...

    Maxx: you must be crazy. That's at least a two day job...
