Default Bowen FB Venom Repaint and Mod by IID Designs

Hi all this is a Faux Bronze venom statue that I recently repainted.
Sometimes the FB look really works....sometimes, not so much. I wasn't a huge fan of this particular one, so i figured "Why not? How much trouble could it be?" lol Well, as it turns out, this one was more that I bargained for! The pallet used was simple, but the angles and masking were anything but! Everything worked out pretty well, but is was definitely a headache at times!

Also there was the little matter of making a tongue, for the FB doesn't have one. That's probably the part I'm most proud of! lol It turned out pretty nasty! A few teeth were also added because my tongue placement is different that the factories.

Thanks for looking! Enjoy!

That's outstanding! I prefer the other FS Venom statue pose, but I don't care for the shiny costume. THIS is much better.

I also didn't realize the FB didn't have a tongue. It's a feature that I don't care for on the character. But now you've given me an idea...

That came out great. Love the black and the tongue looks...like a gross tongue. Awesome work as always. Thanks for sharing and congrats on your new custom!

I have both . . . and this one is AWESOME. Well done. You're paints on the base are definitely better than the original.

I talk about the tongue in this review: http://www.statuemarvels.com/showthr...t=venom+review

Most (not all) of the FB pieces change something from the original. The best being the base on the classic Hulk.

Love the matte finish. I was never a fan of the "super shiny" venom sculpts.

Hey hey I saw this and commented on a FB page, but again, outstanding work. Very inspiring for someone like me who is too afraid to touch any statues. For I lack talent.

It's not what you think.

I only like the original version of the character, when he just had that evil grin. I prefer him this way and just being a really large body builder type.

When Erik Larson took over Amazing Spider-Man, he added the tongue, slobber and started bulking him up beyond normal and then everyone ran with it from there.

That statue that the K Bros did recreating AMS 316 is the version that I really want.

All that being said, with no tongue is what I would prefer, and if they were cheap enough I would buy the FB and have you repaint it. But they aren't that cheap...

I prefer the other pose anyway (standing on the sewer) and would still like it repainted, but this is a lot of money for a character I don't love.

Bottom line, love what you did. I wish you lived closer so I could have you repaint some other stuff.

This is really great! Love how the subtle difference in paints make it look so much better.

Same here. The Dynamic Forces one, right? Looks awesome, but I've heard its a bit smaller in scale? Never seen it compared to anything though. I almost bought one a few weeks ago, but was too worried about the size without knowing for sure.

The sewer one has too much neck strain for me, and not a fan of the face sculpt.

Yep, and that's what I determined too that it is too small compared to Bowens.

I also like the Koto Fine Art version with him standing up on the lighted base. It's so menacing (and no tongue!) but it's also a little too pricey for me.

I agree too that the sewer one has too much neck strain. I just prefer seeing his full figure upright as opposed to crouched. Then again, the crouched would add some variety to my display.

But back to your regularly scheduled thread...

Thanks again guys!

I'm thinking of letting this one go. He doesn't really fit in with any of my displays.
