May these two only fight evil.
Superman was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
Batman was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger.
Although I’d posted some pics of this Batgirl before, Tony Martins (@TonyM_Photo) took these much-improved photos. This 1/6th scale figure was sculpted with a mixture of Sculpey Firm and Apoxie over an aluminum foil armature, primed, and painted with acrylic paints and Cel-Vinyl.
I based this pose on the cover of her first appearance in Detective Comics #359, as drawn by Carmine Infantino, with additional design input by John Vukelic. This was done for the 6th Annual Hub Comics DARK KNIGHT ON A DARK NIGHT Batman art show.
Batgirl was created by Gardner Fox and Carmine Infantino, and redesigned by Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr (and you can see where Babs Tarr autographed it under the Batgirl logo in that last picture!).
Guys, I can’t wait for the new Godzilla movie come from Toho this year!
This Gojira relief was sculpted in Sculpey Firm, cast in Smooth-On resin and painted with acrylics. It measures approximately 6.5″ X 3.5″
From a recent photoshoot with Tony Martins (@TonyM_Photo), an older sculpt of my original character Fool. This 1/9th scale figure was sculpted with a mixture of Super Sculpey over an aluminum foil armature, primed and painted with acrylic paints.
From a recent photoshoot with Tony Martins (@TonyM_Photo), this is Steel. This 1/9th scale figure was sculpted with a mixture of Super Sculpey over an aluminum foil armature, primed and painted with acrylic paints.
When Superman was (briefly) killed by the monster Doomsday back in 1993, construction worker John Henry Irons was trapped by falling debris from the battle. When he finally pulled himself free, he declared “Gotta stop Doomsday!” as though he had to continue the fallen Superman’s never-ending battle.
In subsequent comics, Steel built a suit of powered armor with which gives him superhuman strength and the power of flight, and is probably best known for the movie in which he was played by Shaquille O’Neal.
But I liked Steel best in that first appearance, where he looked for all the world like an amalgamation of two American myths, John Henry and Superman.
Steel was created by Louise Simonson and Jon Bogdanove.
The Tick for #Watsoncon. This 1/6th scale mini-bust was sculpted with Sculpey Firm over an aluminum foil and Apoxie armature, set on a wood base with added broken wood “floor”. Photos by Tony Martins Photography (@TonyM_Photo).
The Tick was created by Ben Edlund.
