Are there any books on Superhero balloon figures? On YouTube,there are only SOME superhero figures shown but not the lesser known ones. So far I've seen the Hulk, Iron Man, Batman, The Flash, Spider-Man, and Thor.
But I've never seen The Thing (Ben Grimm). Would his rocky-body be too hard to sculpture?
And what about the Elongated Man? And how about the Human Torch? How would the Human Torch's flames be sculptured??

Thanks,Russo, but You are confusing Ben Grimm for a different character because you mentioned the color green which is actually the Hulk instead of the Thing. Instead The Thing is a monster-hero whose body is composed of jagged orange rocks. That's why I asked the question as to the difficulty of sculpturing a rocky body.

Just a thought !!!!!! Also how about the long balloon that is all bumpy -orange color . Havent done balloons for several years - since tears always popped up when balloon popped - I then learned to cartoon draw ANY animal requested -the paper also had my advt. always went home & put on the fridg. - resulted in many gigs -- Best to you.

If you know how to do the Hulk, then just do it in orange, use blue instead of purple for the shorts, and draw on the rock-pattern. Also, you may want to add 1 pinchtwist to the head to give the effect of his rocky brow.

Elongated man is just like Mr. Fantastic or Elastigirl---a human shape with 1 or 2 extra-long limbs. BTW, no kid is going to know who the elongated man is!
Everybody wants to beleive.....we just help them along.

Is Elongated man like we had in comics of the 40's-60's PLASTIC MAN -who could stretch legs,arm,body, etc? At 82, not into superheros much any more - just the Chip Monks. L-O-L
