Pod'19: Star Boy (June 22)
« Reply #782 on: June 22, 2019, 03:40:12 PM »
Just when you think I was out, Benton pulls me back in...

Today I present skins of the Legion of Super-Heroes' Star Boy (Pre-Crisis):





I'm by no means a Legion expert but over the last year or so I've become very interested in the team. Probably a result of the Supergirl TV show and various teasing and speculation that the Legion would be returning to DC comics - which was just announced recently. When Benton asked me to skin the star field Star Boy costume I agreed largely because it was pretty easy but also because he hit a sweet spot right now in the form of the Legion. I then went into research mode scouring the DC wiki and some other sources trying to nail down what costumes Thom Kallor had worn over the year. And I found seven different variants of his star field costume and decided to do all of them, and the original caped one as well.

So there's my skin for the year. Maybe it's time to go back into hibernation until 2020...?

These are so fantastic, Pod, and I am blown away by the fact that you did all the different versions!  Each one is just plain perfect, and I am really impressed by how you captured the age we talked about just right.  I didn't much care for his Silver Age look, but I'll be darned if you didn't do such a lovely job that I really love it!  They're all great, man!  :thumbup:

I'm really glad I happened to luck out and hit on a character and a team that could motivate you into giving us such beautiful skins, Pod!  I hope we can convince you not to fade back into the woodwork just yet.  :D
God Bless

These are great Pod! I've tried a couple times to get into Legion but I just couldn't. But, some of the members are quite familiar to me simply because of cross-over appearances.

So there's my skin for the year. Maybe it's time to go back into hibernation until 2020...?

Cave's still warm. :D

Haha, don't you start tempting him to go back into hibernation, Murs!  Next we've got to get you in on the fun!  :lol:

I had only read a few Legion stories before I started this DCUG chapter, but I've been reading a lot of the original run, the Jim Shooter ones, and I'll be darned if they aren't some of the best Silver Age DC books I've ever read.  They're still a product of their time, but they actually have some characterization, some stakes, and some dramatic sense.  And that's all the more astonishing because he started writing them when he was like 14!  Anyway, I wasn't much of Legion fan before, but I am now!

So sleepy...mmm nice warm cave...

My actual Legion reading experience is pretty limited. Mostly just Legion of Three Worlds from Final Crisis (which is awesome) and the backups in Adventure Comics when it starred Connor Kent. Maybe a few occasional issues here or there featuring some members. But I've seen their appearances in cartoons and TV shows, and read some about them. I understand in the 70s or 80s theirs was one of the most popular comics. I'd certainly like to read more.

From a visual stand point they're really fascinating as there's so many of them, so many versions of them, and thus so many costumes and designs.

And thus, so many skins to make.

Legion of Three Worlds was actually the one I really tried to get into...just couldn't. I did try though. I think there just needs to be a complete redux like Ultimates was to Avengers for me to get into it.

Haha, don't you start tempting him to go back into hibernation, Murs!  Next we've got to get you in on the fun!  :lol:

That's really good! Out of curiosity, I should know already but what vx base mesh is that? I'm gonna be looking for something with poofy sleeves soon and that might work for it.

Pod, i know you are not as active anymore but is there any chance you will upload your cannonball skope that you and Windblown were working on? I'm thinking of making a hero file for him and i remember you were close to finishing it.

Oh, and Benton you got mails  :thumbup:

Sorry Jimaras, I wasn't working on Cannonball with Windblown, I checked my folder and don't see a Cannonball. I recall he was working on a New Mutants set but I never got them. Maybe AA was the skinner on them?

Hey Pod,
It's been a while! It's great to see that you're still skinning and that you still have the touch, Brainiac and Star Boy look great. And I'm in love with your Gentle skin :) I've missed our collaborations!

Pod, i know you are not as active anymore but is there any chance you will upload your cannonball skope that you and Windblown were working on? I'm thinking of making a hero file for him and i remember you were close to finishing it.

I need to see my files, I was working with Afghan Ant on the New Mutants set back then. If I recall correctly, Pod skinned Sunspot and Cypher.

Anytime you want to get back into it let me know.

Fun fact before Windblown first showed up I was close to retirement. Your work always inspired me.
I need to find more free time. So many things I want to skin still.

Hey there, I've been checking out your releases and really happy with the range of obscure characters you've covered, it just makes me happy knowing people are giving Bling and Nature Girl some love.

A couple of Qs -

1) Do you still have the Siryn? As an Irish lass I'm upset at the inability to play as one in any superhero games.

2) Do you mind me using these for 3D Prints? Hasbro are dicks so canned the scale I collect and don't tend to like making X-mans anyway. I'm happy to share the tricks I use I to make lower poly game models into useful 3D prints, here's a Magik I'm working on(mix of Marvel Future Fight, CoC and custom) - https://imgur.com/a/DSwJorQ
