NEW ELENA EDEN TOY HEAD-SCULPT [FROM MARVEL LEGENDS SCARLET WITCH]

I recently updated / upgraded the head-sculpt for the first Elena Eden toy... workin' on another toy model of her, which a few faithful fans have seen...
For this current upgrade, I used the head from Marvel Legends Scarlet Witch, and I had to repaint it fully to match the body and color of the original Elena toy [which was based on the body of Wasp, from the same toy line].

 

Elena Eden is one of the Original Characters that I created over 10 years ago for the DSNG Sci Fi Series. And this toy was designed to match Elena's voluptuous physique as much as possible. And the original custom toy building article, along with the original head are shown Here!
Stay tuned for more!

THE CLASSIC BLACK WIDOW COSTUME FROM MARVEL!

While browsing and doing some research for my latest project, I came across some classic stuff... it was the original costume of Marvel's Black Widow [aka Natasha Romanov], which dates back to the 1960s. I also got to see Ironman's classic costume, which looked like some sort of bulky deep-sea diver's armor that was colored bright red and yellow to scare away the sharks :)

Now on the leftward cover of "Tales of Suspense #53 featuring Ironman", I'm not sure if the Black Widow is using her mystical levitation powers, or some sort of electro-magnetism; but she appears to be tossing huge Tanks at Ironman - must be one of those hidden lethal powers that she has.

Nothing wrong with those classic designs, its just interesting to observe the changing fashion trends, shown over several decades. Truthfully, things like skinny jeans, bell-bottom pants and the like, have a habit of popping up every few decades, so that the young people rush to buy them as the latest cool fashion trends. But I have a strong feeling that Marvel is never going to launch a Black Widow comic in the future, in which they feature her with those heavy grandma-styled panties, shown on the right.

GOKU AND VEGETA DRAGON BALL Z FAN ART BY DSNG!

Today I'll be sharing some exclusive fan art with you guys. And it features the characters created roughly 28 years ago [back in 1989] by the Japanese manga artist Akira Toriyama. I'm referring to the Dragon Ball Z creator. And these characters are the classic Super Saiyan rivals, who later became friends: Goku and Vegeta.

Back in the day, before I got to college, I did follow the DragonBall Z saga [right past the "Cell battles" and up till the end of the "Majin Boo saga"]. But I really didn't keep up with the newer DragonBall Super anime series, and I haven't watched most of the cartoon movies. I heard that the newer series was not that interesting, but that's a tale for another day.

 

Vegeta [on the right] has always been second to Goku [on the left], in terms of their comparative power ranking. And while Goku is a goodhearted Superman type of guy, Vegeta is the badass anti-hero, the villain who the fans loved to hate, until he turned good - but he still had a proud chip on his shoulder, since he was a Saiyan Prince back on his former planet.

Anyway, DBZ is very significant to me, because along with Star Wars, it helped to inspire me in creating my DSNG Techpunk Universe; simply because my super-soldier characters like Prince Azzar, Vince and Yatalia all exhibit diverse superhuman abilities.

Levitation is almost standard for my characters that hail from planet Avera [one of the seven major planets in my Makuran Galaxy]. But the good guys are capable of projecting diverse energy beams, along with displaying other unique gifts. And my DSNG villains have special powers as well.

Back in 2013, when I launched the ebook DSNG Book 9 over at Amazon, I created a blog article that talked about it, and that article showed off some of the Top the villains over HERE. But honestly there are over 500 characters in the DSNG universe, since I've been writing and drawing this stuff as sketches since 1999. And at this point, DSNG is up to 17 ebooks, and I don't plan to stop anytime soon...

Anyway, have a great week and remember to share the DBZ art with your buddies on Twitter / Facebook etc!

CUSTOM MARVEL LEGENDS KILLER FROST TOY BY DSNG!

All right today we will look at another custom action figure. And after two months, I’ve finally completed her. She's Killer Frost from DC Comics!!!
This particular character design is from the animated movie Batman: Assault on Arkham, which was released back in 2014. That cartoon movie was a sort of prequel to the Suicide Squad movie that was released in 2016, since it featured several characters including Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, King Shark and a few others.

Honestly Killer Frost [ aka Ms. Louise Lincoln ] was my fav character in the cartoon movie and she’s one of my Top 5 DC Comics characters. Of course Batman, Supes, Harley are in that same list. But I’m really picky about which characters from DC that I really Really like. Killer Frost is a femme fatale and she’s not really a Goth chick, she fits more into the Punk Rock category in my opinion.
 



She has ice powers and she has the ability to absorb heat from external sources and transmute it into waves of cold. And she actually displayed a frosty "kiss of death" in the cartoon movie.

Anyway, I was inspired by the work of another customizer named Anthony’s Customs, who is on Youtube and Facebook. He created his version of Killer Frost back in 2015, and its one of my fav works that he’s ever done.

The base figure that I used is Marvel Legends Captain Marvel [Carol Danvers, shown over Here]. And I had to use putty to sculpt her black lines, and her boobs and booty. And her hair was fully sculpted - so it's hard, and it doesn’t move. The ice spike that I created for her hand was based on the semi-transparent "energy fist effect" that ca,e with the Captain marvel toy. I had to sculpt some sharp points for the spike and them glue them to the top o the energy fist effect. And then I painted the whole thing white and added two shades of blue as highlights. She can stand on her own, but I used the "House of M" toy stand just to aid with balance, as I spun her around for the pics.
The last pic of Killer Frost below is made from screenshots from the Assault on Arkham cartoon movie, in the scene that she was getting dressed.

CUSTOM MARVEL LEGENDS DOMINO, CABLE AND DEADPOOL TOYS BY DSNG!

All right, today I'll be presenting the second part of the recent gallery featuring the Custom Domino toy, along with a custom Cable. The Deadpool figure was standard [straight out of the box], although I did repaint his 0.45-inch caliber handguns, but that was pretty much all I did, beyond adjusting his limbs.

The original article that shows the gallery of the Marvel Legends Domino toy is over Here.
As for Cable, he is the futuristic time-traveling leader of the X-force team [which Deadpool and Domino are known to work within, along with other mutants / X-men].
And I repainted and modified Cable's standard guns [the two large ones that he holds in his hands]. Plus I added two more guns to his frame [one is a rocket launcher taken from Deadpool and the other is from the Gears of War toyline]. Plus I added a dagger to his right hip from the Nuke toy, while I added a "stone-wash effect" to his blue pants.

 

 

During the photoshoot, there was a "piggyback riding experiment" that I tried with this dynamic trio... and to my surprise, it actually worked. During the modifying stage, after adding the thick strap across Cable's chest and the bandanna over his mouth, I also reinforced the boots of Cable, and all of the shiny silver parts on him were additions that I made with putty [I use the Milliputt brand]. And I repainted those additions with acrylic silver, shown in his boots, his belt, his right gauntlet and his left shoulder pad.
Thus with the larger boot heels, Cable was able to stand and hold Deadpool's weight, without any toy stand supporting the big guy. He even got to carry Domino as well! 




 

Figured I should also add this joke pic from the photoshoot... just imagine what Deadpool had to say, when he saw Domino riding the big guy as well, a few minutes later. ...Anyway that's all for now. Stay tuned for more! And follow me on Facebook  where I past most of my updates HERE!
And Part 1 of this article is over Here!
