Alien Argus Custom Group Show

I am very grateful to have been invited to put something together for Mark Nagata's Alien Argus Custom Show. Thanks guys!

I had to play with Alien Argus for a bit before I chopped into him... What an awesome figure! I knew I wanted to do another rider and mount again from the start... but where to begin? This was a weird one. So many textures! Suddenly it made sense- Meat Bike.

Argrim is a Flesh Master. No- not a porn star... He can control meat and flesh of all kinds. He can be healer or destroyer. Argrim is often hired by criminal denizens of the underworld to heal the grievous wounds that are not uncommon in that line of work. The wealthy celebrities of Metran are also known to contact him to perform complex vanity flesh manipulations and breast augmentations.

Argrim has a deadly cutthroat reputation like most freelancers in his circle. Few know of Argrim's true intentions and motives. He donates all of his earnings to hospitals and places of healing. He secretly visits battlefields and war torn communities to use his gifts on the wounded, helpless, broken and needy. He is really a nice guy at heart.

The Meat Bike is an extension of Argrim. It has a pulse.

As usual, I am late with this custom. Like a jerk, I missed the opening. I bit off more than I could chew last month. Special thanks go out to Aaron for bearing with me. Check out the show! I have seen a bunch of great sneak peaks of some amazing Alien Argus customs. Wicked good stuff. Thank you Matt for taking the good pics.

Simply awesome! The story is great and figure is beautiful.

It's sorta like a freaky alien version of Blackjack, only not exactly.

Either way, really cool story, and cooler custom. Man, the directions "meat bike" can go, though...
