Actually, Marvex showed up in a small handful of other comics....see the Marvel Appendix profile...

I know; what I was trying to say I guess is that he only had three golden-age appearances.

This and Vanth were started before I got so sick. Also posted in the Requests forum asking about a pointed ear.

It was a series from Marvel's Epic line, having first started in Epic Magazine. Jim Starlin created them. There were versions at NPI at one time, but they aren't available in the archive at The Wayback Machine. Metamorphosis Odyssey was the original serialized story from Epic, and Dreadstar was the comic.

The Lord High Papal (the villain) and Oedi Puss (Vanth Dreadstar's partner) have also been done.

I know, some of you are thinking: "Hey, Glob, this isn't the Halloween Challenge thread", and you are right. This is a picture of CapMarv from the year 2943.

A one-shot wonder from down under. This is The Vampire, scourge of criminals all over the globe. She is shown on the cover of her first appearance (Gem Comics #16 about February 1948) in a lime-green body stocking, not exactly very intimidating. Copper Age had an additional Micro in a yellow costume, but here I have what might have been a better choice.

Something I did for Cyber Burn:

 

For this pic I have made the view window larger.

I hope to get it and some other stuff to Alex before Christmas.

Nice thing I discovered is that every one of the more experienced scopers out there are more than willing to offer advice, tutoring, and help. I've gone from a less than one in ten success rate to a less than one in ten failure rate. We won't discuss how long it took.

Now, this is a scope, but it is a duplicate of a scope for FF1 that CB did for FFv3R. I opened his scope, looked through his work, and produced this.

That's cool.  Awesome that this place is still as welcoming and helpful as it was in my day. 

As tempting as it is, I'm not sure I have the concentration/patience anymore.   :(  I've downloaded some programs in preparation but haven't felt able to jump in yet.  I may just stick to skins I can finish within two sittings.  More than that, I get overwhelmed, scatterbrained, messy and second-guess everything.  Sooo tempting tho, Renegade's MikeB7 has so many hidden parts.  I may end up requesting simple hexes like that, I can't remember a single thing about how I did it back then, lol.

I know...

But, the first thing I did was just hexing stuff where the readme said "goes on Schlomoraving's hex of Taskmaster Cordless", and Schlomo's site has been gone for three years (and I didn't know about the Wayback Machine, which is still an iffy source), so I got decent at hiding and unhiding stuff. Then I moved one piece to another mesh to make it closer to what I wanted. Now, I lightly sculpt meshes in Blender and put the pieces in Nifscope and produce... well, where Blender is concerned that's another story. Still, it is a useful skill to develop. Save the asking for help for those you flat out cannot do, and you either get advice, tutoring, or offers of help. Of course, I'm retired, so I've got a lot of time to fill in waste, and this is one of the more acceptable ways.
