LOL, how cool is it to have your own action figure? :D I was kinda bored one day and needed to practice sculpting before I attempted to do something actually nice, and threw this together. It's since been taken apart now that I have practice and can do a better job, but here's me, version 1.0.

I know, I know, the face is really messed up. :P

They added a Self Custom category if you wanted to reclassify yours. I agree with the others, you should try the eye tricks. For me I use a micro brush to fill in the eye socket with black. Then a toothpick to dot the black white into an eye shape, leaving a very thin circle of black around part of the eye and then another toothpick to do the color of the eye into the white anchoring it at the top or bottom. Tricky, but once you get it, it goes a long way for faces.

Thanks for the heads up. I have no idea how to edit my customs though, if it can be done? I'd have to re-submit no? Thanks also for the painting tip. I've tried just about everything, and know all the tricks and tips there are, it's just not for me lol.

Always fun to see a live person. Suggestions: Narrow the jaw and cheeks, darken the eyebrows. For the eyes, one trick is to anchor the irises either to the top or bottom lid so they don't float in the middle with that crazy look.
Sarah37 - Monday, November 26, 2012
Good idea, thanks. Unfortunately faces (well eyes) are the one thing I'm no good at, like whatsoever.
claytonemery - Tuesday, November 27, 2012
I know that. They're the last thing I got right (if). The way I do it (probably wrong) is to paint the entire socket white, then center the iris high or low, then put on a drop of lighter color for the center of the iris, then a jot of black for the pupil, then use a pinpoint to put a tiny drop of white on the upper side for the light reflection. Only then do I mix light-tone flesh and paint all around the eye to shape it, and doing that I touch on the edge of the iris to avoid the crazy eyes look. (The one step I leave out is, some experts paint the eye socket black first, then paint inside for the white to form eyeliner. Or they run thin paint into the crack all around. I can't do that yet.) With your figure, the eyes are simply too big, so put on a jot of white and then paint flesh around, and it'll be greatly improved.

And for eyelashes, I've had some luck with just touching a mechanical pencil point (sharpened on the table) around the eye.

Looks cool. I see OPP more often when I'm in Toronto than where I'm from - looks pretty accurate. Congrats on making a custom figure of yourself. If you're attempting a more accurate vest, the NECA Sam Fisher figure has a removable one that could be modified with sculpt (or heated/reshaped) to make a female-type vest. Keep up the good work.
Sarah37 - Monday, November 26, 2012
Thanks. Aye, I used the Sam Fisher vest for my Navy SEAL lady, but didn't want to buy a whole figure just for one accessory, no matter how good it is.

As a fellow officer and customizer congrats on your figure and thanks for your service, and yes I made myself too lol!
Sarah37 - Sunday, November 25, 2012
Haha, that's awesome, and likewise. I'd like to revisit this at some point, make a better vest (we wear ours on the outside unlike the US) and so forth now that I can actually sculpt reasonably well.
Iron Will - Sunday, November 25, 2012
We actually have the option to wear it on the outside too. I'll post mine tomorrow, it's pretty much what I wear daily.
