Black Crow here has to
be one of the most obscure Marvel characters I've done to date. This was
a commissioned piece from a person who is Native American and an action
figure collector, (Marvel I assume) he wanted Native American characters
to be represented on his shelf so he requested Red Wolf, which I had
done before and Black Crow which I had trouble getting the right
reference for due to his minimal appearances in the books.
His base is a Marvel Legends Bullseye, the mask is completely sculpted.
Sculpting was also done on chest piece, arm cuffs and the top of his
boots/moccasins. His head and arm feathers came from some Native
American figures I found at a hobby shop. The shoulder feathers are
pieced together from an Xmen Angel. His hair braids are made from
modified shoelace ends. The loincloth and knife are from a ML Conan
figure. The wrappings on his boots were made from the plastic material
you use to make keychain lanyards. The top knee section were from a Thor
figure and modified.
A lot of work but very much worth it for the end result.
