    Death of Wolverine

    First completed project for 2017 !!
    Inspired by the incredible artist Steve McNiven's awesome page 1 artwork from the "Death Of Wolverine" mini-series.


    This is the page that started it all.
    I tried to stay as true as possible to his art although there wasn't really much reference for everything else not seen in this page !


    The start of the story line details how a virus from the microverse caused Wolverine's mutant healing factor to burn out and stop working, allowing enemies from his past to attempt to finally kill him.


    My Page 1 Tribute









    Logan








    Cabin
    Not much 'real-estate' to work with here so I did what I could






    WIPS :
    - 13' x 9' piece of MDFas a base
    - Floorboard and steps completed


    - Foamboard wall attached
    - Cabin door completed
    - Basic exterior frame done
    - Sidings done


    - Arrows done
    - Eventually recoloured


    - Cabin roof done
    - Lighting installed
    - "Battle Damage" application completed


    - Scratchbuilt 2 lanterns from pits of wood and wire
    - Candles added and handles wrapped with string
    - Weathered


    - Screens added
    - Completed
    (I had 2 1/6 scale lanterns ready to go but I decided to use my scratch built lanterns instead)


    - "Battle Damage" application on clothing
    - Added super glue to the tears I made for the shirt and as fabric usually hardens when in contact so used clips to 'weigh down' the rips and pieces of loose fabric as it sets
    - Weathering added


    - Added blood splattering effect and more weathering


    - Added blood drip effect
    - Shading added


    And that's all folks !
    Sorry about the pics heavy post but lots I wanted to share
    Thanks for dropping by !!

    This is amazing. Your love of the subject and dedication to detail is incredible. KOTM for sure. I especially love all the torn and bloody clothing, and the hair looks great.

    Good Golly Miss Molly! This has to be one of the most outstanding works of art I've ever seen on OSW.

    Absolutely top-shelf.

    It's going to take me a while to soak it all in.

    Wow. So blown away. I agree with delusional, that is seriously one of the most impressive things I've seen on OSW. The dio is just stunning, and packed with so much detail. The blood splatter, the damage to the wood. Freakin beautiful. And your Wolverine looks awesome. The hair looks great and all the damage on the clothes looks spot on realistic. Seriously, one of my all time favorite custom pieces. You have my vote for KOTM.
