Beginning Customizer Help!

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hello, I am a new customizer, and member to these forums. I began working on a figure through some of the details described by Mike Amos in the latest Playstation Magazine. The article is what got me interested in trying out this hobby. I use to do this type of stuff when I was younger and read all the older Chop Shop sections in the Toyfare Magazine.

In any case, I have a few questions with which I hope some of you can help me with.

I am creating Ethan Thomas, the main character from the video game, "Condemned 2: Bloodshot". I do not know what I should do about the arms, and legs though. Should I cover them with sculpy, or just paint over the already applied paint? I am trying to make the shirt look more like a shirt, and the pants look more like pants, instead of a solid plastic look. Also, what should I do about the joints?

I am using a Punisher Action Figure for this project.

Also, why am I unable to post links or screenshots to the images? They would be pretty helpful.

BUMP

any other advice on customizing this figure? Iv'e ordered some Apoxie Sculpt, so it's on it's way. But I just can't figure out the whole join stuff.

The first image is of Ethan Thomas from Condemned 2: Bloodshot.
The second image is the Punisher figure which I am using as a base
The third image is what I have done up so far

You need a few more posts before you can post links, it's to help stop spammers.

If you haven't already found our tutorials: http://www.figurerealm.com/customtutorial.php

Sculpey is brittle, buy some Apoxie eventually for more durable results.

What Punisher figure are you using? I know they're mostly black already but paint some black on it again anyway, it'll help your next paint stick to it better.
