WIP. I think I might add some more bulk to him and try and blend the torso to shoulder a bit better but I think it's a pretty good start.

I'm going to take a break from it for now. It's been more work than i expected... plus I added bulk to him and ended up not liking it as much and tore it off and started over and am a bit tired of it atm.

 

I've been sanding the hulk arms to remove texture and that's been a pain in the ass, especially since it's a softer material. There may be a better arm choice out there.

 

I also extended the torso width by putting the round disc part of the shoulder pegs on the outside of the torso sockets and encasing them in putty instead. It worked really well. Ya just have to lay him flat and position it so the arms don't move while the putty hardens.

 

If that doesn't make sense, it's like planting a tree where the socket is the hole in thee ground the shoulder peg is the roots and ya just fill the hole in with putty.

It looks like a crazy amount of work, so I definitely understand the need for a break. I think pausing a project can sometimes be the best thing for it. You can think it over, and if it still seems like it's worth the effort, be re-energized for it. Regardless, I'm a fan of your work. Whatever you put out next, I'm looking forward to seeing.

Thanks man, that's definitely true.. but after posting that I took another look at what I was doing and realized I was screwing up.. so i cut away the putty yet again and restarted and it, and am pretty happy with the result thus far. So I think I'll at least get it ready to paint before i take a break from it.

Resculpted the torso and am satisfied with it. It's not perfect (the back and abs were done with a complete lack of enthusiasm) but overall it's pretty gnarly in hand and I'm proud of it. Debating which legs to use: Gladiator vs Steve Rogers and then look to go with. I'm leaning towards a more current look. I may have to edit the head but I think what I've come up with is more modern looking sculpt. At any rate he's going to be collecting dust until i decide to finish him.

Looking good D. I'd go w/ the larger Wonderman legs. They look more stable than the Comm. Rogers legs. Of course if you're going for how he looked when fighting WW Hulk then Luke Cage legs will work.

I was out in my shed, and found my old Tony Stark I made using the Face figure, and switched Face's head out w/ the RDJ Stark head from my figure kits in my store

Gen Ross finding that now that Banner is working w/ Stark, and SHIELD he can't just come in, and start pushing Bruce around

I really need to get some more ink for my printer so I can print up some backgrounds.

I'd say use cables legs. Where he is misproportioned due to learning to control his powers he still is pretty tall if I'm not mistaking.

thanks guys, here's what my choices look like

Steve Rogers is obviously too scrawny, but was thinking it could look good with bulked up upper thighs. I tried mixing different thighs with the lower legs but nothing matched up.

 

I felt like the cable legs looked great but almost too proportional, but the more strong guy pictures i see the more I think they would be fine.

 

Gladiators legs I felt worked ok

 

Those pant legs look cool too

 

Edit.

after doing lots of picture browsing I'm leaning towards cable's legs. Doesn't look like he's drawn so out of proportion as he was in the 90's.

The cable / tigershark legs look awesome on him. Can't wait to see the finished version.

Definitely go with the Cable/Tigershark? legs. they look perfect from here.

yeah I agree it's the right choice. The only thing I don't like about it is it makes the waist look even smaller but I don't think I can do anything about it without fusing the waist. I'm also going to keep an eye out for a jacket in the 6 inch scale that might fit him. I don't think that belt will be accurate either but I'm not about to cover up such a good x-belt

NICE! I say go for the Tiger Shark legs. Proportionately, you're totally right- these days, he's disproportional, but not like the old-school X-Factor comics. Looking back, many of those issues had a super-stylized approach anyway. My favorite look for Strong Guy is X-Factor #1 (2005)- it's simple and has his trademark hair. You could keep the glasses as-is, sort of as an homage to his roots. But if you find a jacket, you could do his second look in that series.
