Hellboy and Abe Sapien

Not only was Dragon*Con 2011 the single greatest assemblage of cubed Marvel characters (more on that soon, once the photos are in), but also the setting for the fist evolution of the Box Heroes:  Hellboy and Abe Sapien.  When Jared Cain asked about building a Hellboy suit I didn't know a whole lot about Mike Mignola's comic masterpiece, but had seen images of his amazing art and knew it would be the perfect chance to try to build a "skinny suit" for the character of Abe Sapien.  Abe is slender grace as Hellboy is weighty chunk.   In palette as well as temperment  Hellboy is hot, while Abe is cool.  The contrast is great.
Jared's Hellboy paint job really raised the tube on Box Hero art, and with his help I think Abe came out great as well.  You judge.  These are the results.
