View Full Version : Fear...Dr. MAN-tis!
Mar 13, '12, 3:40 PM
The doctor will see you now! This is my original character. Dr. MAN-tis (you have to pronounce the hyphen.) Once he was a scienist fooling with Mantid DNA (like you do), maybe trying to figure out how to turn his head 180 degrees, I don't know. He never told me.
He's a combo of a Doc Mego body with a Xevoz Bonecutter figure. Doc coat, CTVT pants. Lots of paint, varnish and more paint, really.
I was kinda surprised that the lab coat didn't cover where the arms connected, so I had to try to blend.
Oh, and that's a Doctor Venture cast head under. Got that from a demon at a crossroads. Thanks demon, you know who you are! :wink_y:
I worked hard on him, so be gentle! Anywhichway, thanks for looking!:smiley12:

I can't begin to tell you how much I like this figure!!!
I think he should team up with ManAnt from The Aquabats.

I think one of the best you've ever done Gary. Splendid.

Don't normally bump my own threads, but here is a commissioned piece of artwork I had done. Eryck Webb, check him out, tell him Gary sent you.

Your custom figure is fantastic, Gary!...I must have missed him...And your drawing is really good, it would make great artwork for a custom box for Dr Man-Tis.
