    Granite Bear - Indomitable Warrior Bear

    Hi friens!

    I'm working at new MotU Custom... his name is Granite Bear... (my nickname on He-man.org; in IT Orsogranito as GraniteBear)...

    Granite Bear is a member of an ancient race of Warriors Bears that lives in the remotest mountains of Eternia. These warriors are bitter enemies of Icer's kingdom of ice.
    Granite Bear is a good friend of Barkskin (another my old custom), who live the old forest on the slopes of the remotest mountains.
    The rest of bio is also under construction.

    I think that the hardest thing to do on this custom, is build a good armor on the body... as seen on The Golden Compass film.

    I used Gygor body and I sculpted the head. (I recovered Gygor teeth).

    After I cut (shortned) the arms of ex-ape.

    Tomorrow I will scuplting new hands and feet with "important" claws as Wolverine.

    This is a first picture of work in progres.





    What do you think at this time?

    Have you seen the bear character in the Power & honor book? Its armor is wicked, I would really like to see it into figure form. Good luck with your custom, looks good so far.

    Awesome idea!

    I instantly thought you should make another and paint him red! RED BEAST to hang out with Demo-Man from the early concept drawings!

    unexpected but great idea to reuse the Gygor buck! Can't wait to see this project complete!
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Okay. That's a brilliant idea. I never would have thought of that body working for anything that isn't gorilla-like. Looks great.

    Really awsome Idea, would have never thought of that! The head sculpt looks great, can't wait to see how the arms and claws turn out! Over all I would love to see this Giant warrior come to life! Thus far (GREAT WORK)!

    My first thought exactly, because a faux-fur flocked Gygor buck colored red with new head as Mark Taylor's Red Beast is exactly what I've been wanting them to make for a while!!

    This is a new image. The claws are sculpted to 80% , but I'm not sure to leave them so long. Is an experiment.

    What do you think? Claws long as in image or a little shorter?

    Claw length looks fine to me as long as they are stable.

    I think you could go half that length and still have the desired look. These look borderline like those fingernails from the wrong side of town hoochies...

    Yeah, I'd go with shorter, more realistic claws. What material do you use for sculpting?

    Milliput Silver/Gray.

    I'm using a lot of putty and a lot of time in this custom, because the bear is very great; actually I'm modeling large parts of armor...

    and then...I'm building two customs at the same time.
