Hey guys,

I don't know if this is well known but Adam Ross the sculptor who did The Supergirl Tv Statue and The New Supergirl figure also made the costume and armor for the Martian Manhunter for the show...(he did not have the time to sculpt the action figure though)
I was really interested about this so I did a quick google search and found this article about it that was a nice read :)
Supergirl CBS: Martian Manhunter
Doing costuming for TV is a lot different than doing it for film. Production schedules are *very* compressed, sometimes only allowing as much as several days between receiving the concept and delivering printable files. It's not that there's less reviews, its just that all those reviews and decisions are made in that very compressed period of time. That being said, working on Supergirl has always been a blast. I had the opportunity to sculpt the armor/suit for one of the founding members of the JLA, Martian Manhunter. When sculpting hard surface pieces around a body scan, I always try to go back and do a clean retop and smooth based on poly groups in ZBrush. The retop and poly group smoothing (with creasing) yields a very nice machined look. However, it can be time consuming, and time is something that's precious on TV productions. In order to meet the time constraints, I had to really refine my "manual" polishing techniques in ZBrush....and I'm quite proud of the results!

He also did the armor for Reactron .

Turnarounds on many TV shows (for my part at least) are often as little as several days to a week at most. In spite of that, working on this show has been fun and rewarding, as the scheduling often mandates having to fill in blanks and spot designing on the fly. For this character I was responsible for the mask, collar, and chest armor. Designs provided by production.
