[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Howdy y'all -[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]This is just a little something I made a few months that I've finally gotten around to taking pictures. Click on each thumbnail to see the full picture.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Posted Image-----Posted Image-----Posted Image-----Posted Image-----Posted Image-----Posted Image-----Posted Image-----Posted Image-----Posted Image[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]My original idea was to create a skeleton out of Hero Factory pieces, since the set designers of this (then) new building system said that's what they wanted to do. I knew I wanted to use the Witch Doctor's head as a skull, but at some point while I was building I heard one of my sisters listening to a certain song from The Princess and the Frog (you know the one, admit it :P), and then it hit me: why not create a Louisiana-style Witch Doctor? I then started working on a cane and top hat, and I think they both turned out pretty well.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Here's some inspiration that came to mind before I started and while I was building (again, please click on the thumbnails to see the [pun]bigger picture[/pun]:[/font]

Reminds me of a foe from the (sadly) washaway Darksiders game. Look up Wicked K. Looks decent . Really dig the spikes on the legs! Well done.

Nice! I like the way you shaped the body, however, the skinny shoulder looks awkward against the much wider bicep.

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Thanks for the replies. :)[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]DARKSIDERZ: Thanks. :) I looked up some images and yeah, it does look like him. That's really weird. :P The spikes are actually a way to add thickness; I didn't want something solid, and I thought the white would look good to contrast the black.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Dralcax: Thanks. :) Yeah, the shoulders didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted. I still wanted to have that "Hero Factory skeleton" look and I didn't want to limit articulation.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]AdaptingChaos: Thanks. :) I'm glad you like the hat. I actually was looking at adding another gear to the top, but then it looked more like Abraham Lincoln. :P I like the limbs, too, and I think the Hero Factory parts work out well for this especially (there's a line of Hero Factory pieces in the limbs, as I'm sure you noticed). I'm still getting used to incorporating them into my models, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. :)[/font]
