Believe it or not, this guy is my first custom ever. I made him way before The Dark Knight came out (almost a year before). The promotional pictures had just come out and I thought "WOW the Joker looks sick!" It looks amaturish to me now, but at the time I thought "Man, this toy is awesome."
It doesn't compare to my stuff now but it taught me a lot about the tools, techniques, and the bases I should use. I used one razor blade to shave and sculpt the entire thing (Thank God for Dremel Drills!) I ordered some fixit (still have the same two tubs) and I used glossy paints and some enamels I think. I also tried making a coat out of fabric (way in over my head), the mask is Sculpey and it's Christian Bale as The Joker! Live and learn.
I went into this after being inspired by the customizers on Figurerealm, so thanks to everyone. If you feel like you're stuff isn't good enough don't worry all you need is a little practice, we all gotta start somewhere.
