Thanks guys for checking it out. Pictures are kinda of crappy as I only have my phone camera. It was a hard build and a lot of work. I have a long way to go to get better, but I'm making progress.

Personally, when I'm sculpting, I tend to like the process better than the result. I think you took a chance trying to make the Magus into Grim Reaper because of all of the sanding you would have to do. It seems to have paid off though. The "evil" grin on his face fits with the character. Hope you try another Avengers villain next.

Beautiful work. I'm still gathering the courage to do what you did with a few statues of mine. The Magus base works perfectly for Reaper.

I agree with you. The process was very challenging here and I learned a lot that I can apply going forward. While I'm satisfied with the result and it looks good in my Avengers bad guys display, I still have a long way to go in my development. That really is the fun part for me too.

Thank you. Give it a chance. It was a bit nerve-racking the first time I tried it, but it is totally worth the effort.

Thank you! Trying to figure out how to make a Swordsman next to go with my Mantis conversion. Haven't decided on which statue to use.
