Savage Spider

Return to Action Figure Gallery
Name: Savage Spider
Date complete: March 24 2018
Base figure: Marvel Legends Namor
Paints used: Acryla Gouache
Description: I had a concept idea of a caveman Spider-man. I wanted to have the spider symbol look like primitive paint applications. With this figure I wanted to have a loin cloth style piece but needed the figure to remain articulated. I ended up sculpting the belt with Worbla and the rest of the cloth was out of felt. I think it came out pretty nice. The weapon was a dowel stick, with a knife glued, and web line wrapped around. The head was originally from Sentry and I sculpted a beard.
Overall Impressions: This was a fun custom to create and I really like how it turned out. If I were to improve on this in any way, I’d find a better way to handle the clothing. Other than that, I’m happy with how it turned out.
