Ok, the reason I got into customizing was to make stuff either nobody else made, or help others with collections....


Nu52 Nightwing





not sure about the torso, but arms and legs are from a DCUC Nu52 Batman, and the knee pads are from a Hush Jason Todd. Paints range from German Grey , Nato Black , Black,and Flat Black





the head is DC Direct TeenTitans Robin, and the neck is a piece added from a Batman Begins. Leather strips were added to fill in the shoulder and chest area, and the logo is sculpted...


I didn't like the Nu52 as a rule, but I'm glad I finished this custom...

Ok so this is the plan, I post one today and one tommorrow, try to get into a good pattern....


Back to Nightwing rogues is my current motivation for customs right now so here goes...

Stallion!

 gah.gif Photobucket won't let me load!


One more try.....Stallion!





WOO HOO!

Ok , the joy with this fig is that most of it is made from cast parts, only the arms and torso are original....the boots, pants, and head are all casts that I made...


Top to bottom, Head cast of a DC Direct Aquaman head with a strip of leather for the bandana and part of a Spirit tie...
the torso is a DCUC Jonah Hex with a suede piece to finish the shirt added with small stickers to act as buttons (you know those letters made with the round plastic ) and the logo is hand painted. The karate belt is suede.....

Wish I could show more pics, I'm proud of this one!

So I'm having Photobucket issues and just feel lucky I got my pics....

To continue with my Nightwing Rogues an outfit worn in Nightwing 145, 146....
Talia!





The head is a DCUC Donna Troy head with the brown drybrushed with Brown and Nato Brown..





Leather is used for the gloves and the Holster (custom made of course) and gloves and boots similar technique of Nato Black and German Grey, pouches on the belt from the fodder bin...





As you can see, the body is a DC Direct Hush Catwoman, the right arm was replaced (the original was lost in one of the moves) with a ML figure as well as the lower legs. This makes her a touch shorter but still a striking figure...





The paint of the bodysuit was a combination of drybrush and clearcoat...added purple to the clear, they mixed ,but not really , the purple was painted on ,then drybrushed the clear....I think it works.


I'm proud of this one guys, makes me glad of my skills as a customizer, and always trying to do better...

Thanks for the comment fish..

One thing that's occurred to me more than once, but I don't think I've ever mentioned is that your customs all have a common sense logic. When you use fodder for example, it's always a product that makes sense. I dig that!
