how do you decide what custom to make

Posted in Custom Workstation

??????
do you think of what you want to make and make it
or do you see what you have to work with and decide based on that
or do you see somthing and want to make it based on how much you liked what you saw

so what makes you do it?

If you are making them to sell, then I think you may want to go with main stream characters that will get a lot of attention like Batman. You may also want to keep track of the custom figures that have been selling and what they've sold for. You can do a search under for custom figures and completed auctions. It's always a surprise to see some of the things that are sold and how much they go for.

I usually pick out who I wanna make into a figure and then search my loose figures or the store for a figure thats in the same image. I haven't quite perfected the torso and leg swap so I try to just head swaps or sculpting.

Sometimes I do have ideas just pop in there and try to find a good base, other times I see the base and know what I'm gonna make out of it, I always stick to things I like I.E starwars and tcats.

They just kinda pop into my head as I'm tinkering with pieces of figures.

I try to keep up with video game releases and feature films most of the time, or if some asks me to do one I'll give it a shot.

I usually decide who I want to make then make it. I try not to do customs that have been done many times before.
