Witch Doctor 2.0


Recommended Posts

Howdy y'all -


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.




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.


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]:


Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog (Duh)



Gigabyte from Reboot (Just for the one hand. I picture it as an energy-sucking hand, like Gigabyte had)


Jack Skellington from Nightmare before Christmas (I think this one's little obvious)



Sachiel the Third Angel from Neon Genesis Evangellion (Oh gosh, I absolutely regret watching as much of this series as I did, I completely wasted my time on it, but I couldn't help but think of this)



Spider-man's Symbiote Suit



Thanks for looking and don't hesitate to post your thoughts. :)

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.

Thanks for the replies. :)


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.


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.


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. :)
