Re: ODSV: Orbital Drop Shock Venom *IMGs*

In Response To: ODSV: Orbital Drop Shock Venom *IMGs* (Revenant1988)

: Awhile back I picked up a Sean Bradley ODST kit to work on. (If you've seen
: other ODST cosplays, chances are high you're seeing one of his kits-
: they're ubiquitous around places like the 405th and rightly so- they're
: damn fine kits.)

: For years I've had this idea sitting in my head about taking Venom (one of
: Spider-Man's villains\rivals\antagonists) and somehow incorporating his
: design onto an ODST. I even came up with an origin story from the two
: universes. I don't sit and think about stuff like that often, so when it
: dawned on me that I could call it my ODSV, I decided to bring this guy to
: life.

: I wanted to take the look of the Rookie from H3 and merge it with Venom from
: the McFarlane era. The goal was to achieve that 2D comic-book look of
: venom and apply it to a 3D surface. It was not easy. I spent months
: testing different paint combinations to get that
: not-totally-black-but-not-totally-blue look that venom has. Here's what
: I'm talking about, for the curious:

: Marvel vs Capcom Venom was also a huge part of my references, and also
: similar to that art style.


: Armed with these references and total disregard for my sanity, I've spent the
: last 8 months working on this cross-over in preparation for Dragon Con
: down in Atlanta (If you're going to be down there and see me, come by for
: a pic!).

: I know folks here are really more interested in the finished product, but if
: you want to see the build from start to finish, see my build thread on the
: 405th here:

: Or the imgur album here:

: Anyway, here's the goods:


: The tongue is detachable, depending on my mood.





: And a little costume for the plushie I picked up through this site, because
: why not? :)


: I'm very pleased with how it's turned out and would love to read your
: thoughts on the character. It's not meant to be taken seriously by any
: means, so if you don't like it or it's not your thing you won't hurt my
: feelings. Just something I wanted to try because I could ;)

: To the Artists of HBO, I'm really interested in commissioning some artwork
: of this character to hang in my game room or garage. If you're interested,
: please let me know!

: Thanks for looking :)

Does the tongue have drool on it??? Haha, if so, that's awesome!

Also, TDSpiral, would love to see you guys work on this commission together!
