Hi fellow artists.
:)
I'd like to close 2011 with the first figure that I created at the beginning of this year. Prior to 2011, I was always intrigued by the art of customizing figures, but was always a little intimidated by the awesome customs that I would see online.
Early 2011 I decided to bite the bullet and give customizing a try. Hence this concept Green Lantern character which I've fittingly called Genesis.
I bought a DC Direct ElseWorlds Superman figure, removed its head, shoulder pads and cape and went to town on repainting the whole figure. The helmet is actually from a World of Warcraft Series 1- Thargas Anvilmar Dwarf Warrior Figure. I "exact-knifed" the beard and horns off the helmet and sanded it down.
This guy was done before I learned the wonders of using water-slide decals, hence the hand painted GL logos on his chest and helmet. I'm seriously thinking of redoing his 2 GL logos on his helmet. I was never really happy with the way they came out.
The 2 translucent green hoses and the ring are from a plastic bracelet. I love the energy effect they produce.
Being that it's my true first custom figure, it holds a special place in my heart.
I know I still have a long way to go, but it's been a fun ride so far.
Thanks to this wonderful site, FigureRealm, and its incredible community of fellow customizers (from beginners to the Jedi Knights of customizing), I know it's going to be a fun 2012 for me.
Completed February 2011.
Thank you so much for your feedback.
Happy New Year, folks.
:)

Thank you so much emmbro30.
Coming from a gifted customizer like yourself, your words mean a lot.

If you look at my original lanterns you will see I give them backstories. You seem to have a good imagination. I think you could do it. And some of the other customizers on here enjoy reading what I come up with.

I love reading the backstories to your customs.
They're awesome and extremely creative.
I don't know if I could do that though.
Might give it a try, but I somewhat like leaving the concept characters' stories up to the viewers' imagination.

Thanks saber4734.

Man if that chest symbol is hand painted then you did a great job. I like the concept. He would make a good candidate for an Alpha Lantern. Before they turned bad that is.
NeCrollector - Sunday, January 1, 2012
Yeah, you're right. He would make a cool Alpha Lantern.
Hmmmmmm.....
I might have to give him another try.
Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback.

I really appreciate it.

I agree with 3b, those logos are excellent and really set the figure off great. along with your superb custom, your tubes on the recent customs are also excellent ideas. keep up the amazing work.

Wow, CFC, thanks again for your humbling words.

Here's to a great new year in the art of customizing.

What you call imperfections I would call perfection, your hand painted logos are amazing and I personally find hand painted logos a lot better since it adds more of a personal touch to the custom, and never be intimidated to show your work cause seeing one's progression and dedication is inspiring to others (like myself) so keep up the great work and hope to see more after the new year......HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Thanks 3bcustoms.

I truly appreciate all your kind words.
That GL logo on his chest took me several attempts before I felt I had it just right. It was, however, an awesome introduction into the world of customizing.
I'll be posting a few more soon since I still have some from 2011 and am currently working on a few projects for the start of 2012.
Have an amazing 2012, 3b...

Yeah I like the details and originality. Never be intimidated by ANYTHING in life. I felt the same way until I just kept at the customs. Keep it up!
