Hello Figure Realm! I am brand new at customizing, and this is my very first. So please be gentle!

I decided to go with a drax base, because the pants and shoes were perfect. I then purchased a superboy prime head to try and match the head.

I learned that customizing is SUPER HARD. I really need to find some good paint, because the paint still rubs. I also learned that customizing is actually really fun. Painting is hard, but incredibly fun and truly is an art. I didn't sculpt on this project, but I bought some apoxie and fiddled around with it and I am excited for when I get to sculpt. While I am not super pleased with the end result, I decided that as this was my first attempt I am content with what I produced. I have a lot to work on, but I am truly happy with my first attempt. I hope to revisit superboy someday, and make an even better Connor Kent.

All feedback is appreciated ( except the negative feedback :p )

*Also, I chose to put in the picture of headless superboy prime in there, because lets be honest, who actually liked superboy prime?

Hey, welcome to the realm - your superboy looks really cool- and that is a first try - amazing!!!
- If you want to work on your skills the tutorials are really helpful, another option is Youtube where you can also watch tutorials. I personally use thinned out citadel colors (the stuff you get in Games workshop) the work really good.
