the claws are made of polymer clay and sculpted over the original claws, the armor is likewise made from polymer clay, with fabric and craft foam making the details.

Oh yeah, you did a much better job than me on this one. You certainly paid more attention to detail than me. I notice several things right off the bat. First, you used clay on the fabric pieces, the ends of the cape, and the end of the skirt flap. I also took note of the shoulder pads, as I was unsure of how to construct such things on mine. I do believe that I made a comment about that on the video, which I saw long before this. I've also noticed that you sacrificed articulation in the wrists for the sake of expanding the wrist thing. Second, I took note of the ankles, you actually sculpted on the extensions of his boots, which I forgot to do. The figure I used didn't have articulation there to begin with because it was my old Knuckles. I also noticed a very minor difference from the video to this, you glued the skirt to his waist, I glued mine to Enerjak's chest because it fit there better. I'm not sure how I feel about the way you did the dreadlocks though. It was an ingenious idea to spread them with toothpicks, then use plastic bits to hold them in place. What did you use for the plastic anyway? Third, I took careful note of the cape color. I didn't have a reference picture handy when I colored the inside of his cape, I forgot it was red. I noticed that your Enerjak's tail is red, it should be black. The hoses are an interesting idea, I had thought they were weird looking chains. You pull it off well here though. (Despite me liking the chain idea more) Is your sealant what makes the black shiny? Or was that the type of paint that you used? Last, but not least the helmet. I still wish that I could figure out exactly how you do it. I think that the clay part of the helmet looks really cool, but the mask looks a little on the fat side. It makes him look like a bobble head, but maybe that's just me being nit-picky. I like the large amount of detail you put into just the mask in particular The black lines on the points really do make it appear as if it has more depth than it actually does. I'm also liking the red lines on it, how thin they are, as opposed to the lines on my Enerjak's mask. Which are thick and blotchy. One thing that I would have suggested though, is that you should have used some sort of glossy paint, or sealant for the red gem on the forehead of the mask. That really would have made it stand out. I really shouldn't be, but I'm truly amazed at how you did on him. Once more you did an exceptional job on capturing the likeness of a Sonic character who has no official action figure. I have to ask about Excalibur Sonic though. Is our challenge still on for that? (I understand that you have a million other things to do in life, so there's no rush.)

Oh yeah, we're still on for Excalibur Sonic too, I just need to get another 3 inch Black Knight Sonic (or at least his gauntlet and sword) which is apparently out of print since even directly e-mailing Jazwares and asking for one didn't yield results.

I didn't know you could just email Jazwares and request parts. Or maybe I understand that wrong. I was just lucky to have the extra gauntlet laying around, my current sonic, the free riders one, has too big of bumps on the ends of his arms to properly fit the gauntlet on, so I figured instead of wasting it, I'd put it to some sort of good use.

I didn't ask JW for parts, but I did ask for a BK Sonic and they didn't have it, I couldn't find it at comic con either.

Huh, that's strange that JW didn't even have it, maybe it is out of print like you said.

the toothpicks are still in there, I stuck them in to lift up the dreads and then broke off the parts that stuck out. The mask looks wider because it's on the front of the helmet which is wider to accommodate those splayed dreads.

Also the bits on the skirt and cape are not made of clay, rather craft foam and plastic bits salvaged from the "lego brick" I cut off the boots. The paint itself isn't glossy, except for the gold of course, but the sealant I use, even though it's matte type, adds a bit of shine that acrylic simply doesn't have.

OOOO........hppmmmm, I liked it, but I do think Mew14 has you beat here sorry Wake, I like his idea of the pipe cleaners and chain, and his cape is longer. But I prefer your helmet and paint.

heh, I didn't have any chains lying around, but I gotta admit he had a pretty nice idea making the dreads poseable by remaking them out of pipe cleaners.
