Hell yeah Godzilla and King Ghidorah.
Ultron Mark I prop from Avengers: Age of Ultron
Got commissioned to make a Batgirl Beyond and once I’m done with this, I plan on making myself one because I am digging this so hard!
Most of the sculpting and build is done aside from some spikes for her arms but otherwise its just a matter of cleanup and then onto paint.
You can find out more about getting commission work done by visiting my store page and clicking on the Custom Figure Commission FAQ. I try and address most questions about getting a commission done there, but if you don’t find the answers you need, contact info is at the bottom of the page so shoot me a note and I will do my best to answers any questions you might have.
Stay rad, and customize your way!
Close-Ups on Detail of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman costume for Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice
Okay, the heels are weird.
But I am pretty encouraged. This looks like a Wonder Woman who kicks ass.
It is SO important to SO many people that they get this right. I hope they understand the responsibility they have to people, not just women, all over the world.
Close-ups of the Wonder Woman costume Gal Gadot will be wearing in the next DC movie.

ERIC STEPHENSON’S KEYNOTE SPEECH FROM IMAGE EXPO 2014: DIVERSITY, ORIGINALITY, GRAVE-ROBBING
Image Comics held another one-day Image Expo in San Diego this week just ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, to shine a spotlight on a slate of upcoming titles, including new work from Rick Remender, Ray Fawkes, Marian Churchland, Jeff Lemire, and Becky Cloonan.
It was also a chance for Image publisher Eric Stephenson to talk about Image’s position in the comics market. In his keynote speech he called out his competitors for their reliance on “grave robbing the past,” hailed the importance of diversity, and derided the term “creator-driven”.
Above, you can also watch the nine-minute video that played before Stephenson’s speech, in which Stephenson and a host of Image creators acclaim the way Image allows creators to do what they want without micro-management or editorial oversight. As pointed out by Patrick Reed in his write-up of the live presentation earlier this week, the video fails to effectively reflect Stephenson’s belief in diversity amongst creators, featuring only one person who’s not a white male. But it should be noted that immediately following the screening of this video, Stephenson did introduce a number of women and persons of color to the stage to announce their new Image comics.
Make a Wish Wednesday
This week on Make a Wish Wednesday, we take a look at a phenomenal artist: JH Williams III.
Bunnypwn Gold’s pick—Dr. Strange: I am a big fan of JH Williams III. As far as I’m concerned, the man can do pretty much anything he could possibly imagine, and it would look like the best art in the world yet. Because of this, it was hard at first to pick any one thing he should do—a book that would best utilize his talents and simply look more compelling for his presence—and that’s when I thought of Dr. Strange. I am also a fan of the doctor, and he is in major need of some reinvigoration at the moment, especially with his own film coming out in just a few years. But beyond that, Dr. Strange gives JH all the opportunity in the world to shine: a ton of important symbolism due to the magic involved, the necessity for a lot of powerful, creative visual effects, and the chance to come up with amazing panel layouts. The panel layouts of Batwoman are what really made me fall in love with JH, beyond just the visual beauty and sophistication of the art itself, because it shows his true inventiveness and really makes him stand out as a creator. Look at the example of his art above, for instance: the seamless fusion of a no-panel action sequence with “snapshot panels” that give the reader the illusion of traditional comics language, the opposing panels of Batwoman and the DEO at the bottom to show antagonism even though she’s running from them. Put a guy like JH on Dr. Strange, whether as the artist or also with writing duties, and it will be one of the best selling books on the stands instantly.
Weird Beard’s pick: The Flash- I agree with a lot of what was said above about how awesome J.H.William’s art is from his art to his use of layouts to tell the story and blend it all together for an amazing picture. So with his artistic skill and inventive panel use, what superhero do I want to see him tackle? That’s an easy choice: The Flash. The Flash is a character who can be as visually stunning as any, as demonstrated by Francis Manapul’s art above (Which is sadly and probably the closest we’ll ever have to having Williams on the book. This isn’t to knock against Manapul as his art and layouts are genius, but this article is about Williams. Manapul just beautifully proves my point since he too captures much of what makes Williams an amazing artist). And as Chris Sims point out here, The Flash is a character who’s powers visually work in comics like no other medium to both story and amazing superpowers as there has been decades of artistic invention to show just how fast the Flash can be and how this superspeed affects the world visually. The Flash is a book where artists can go to be really creative and let the lightning loose on to the page. J.H. Williams on The Flash. ‘Nuff said.
