View Full Version : My first custom-- Green Lantern
Apr 10, '08, 4:41 PM
Hi guys, this is my fist time posting one of my works I hope you guys like it. As it happened my two favorite DC character never made it to the 8" Mego line, Green Lantern (being my all time favorite comic book character) had to be first. So here he is, I used a Cap. Kirk head because I have always loved that smirk and thought it represented Hal very well I used super sculpy for his hair and mask and the paints are mine as well. The suit is a dark green suit from CTVT I drew the black parts on with a fabric marker. The Boots are CTVT and the Gloves are Doc Mego and sticker was computer printed on photo paper and run through a sticker machine. I have my second favorite character done as well and I will post some pics of him soon! I hope you guys like it!

Hi Green Lantern 9999 :smiley12: Welcome to the forum. From one rookie to another you will find that most members of this forum are very supportive, and kind individuals. Their work has defintely inspired me big time to keep crankin' out customs. Your GL looks great! One of the better uses of fabric marker I've seen in awhile. And who have thunk it...That Kirk's head is a perfect choice for a GL sculpt. Great work man, keep it comin' :hokay: -Will

Really nice work, welcome to the world of customs.

The Kirk head works great...in a way it reminds me of GL from "New Frontier".

I would not have guessed a kirk head would look so good on GL. Nice job. Green Lantern and also Flash are both pretty common customs cause everybody wanted one. I enjoy seeing the different ways people come up with their version of these guys. Nice. I am glad you did the points at the shoulders, a lot of people skip that detail, & the marker worked well.

Fantastic. Hard to believe he's your first custom! Well done.

I never get tired of seeing the "what ifs" Green Lantern and Flash figures. I love your take on it. Simply amazing!!
Apr 10, '08, 7:37 PM
Well done and welcome to the custom world!!
Doesn't it feel great to hold a figure you always wanted???
Knowing you made it yourself.

This has really got me thinking about a GL custom of my own....is fabric marker just as easy as drawing over the green bodysuit or is there more to it?
Apr 17, '08, 12:33 PM
Well I did just draw on a green suit but it takes a few coats to not look like you threw it on with magic marker. I used chalk to try and outline it so it looked even. But yeah the suit was the simplest part of the whole thing.
Apr 17, '08, 12:37 PM
Thanks for the info....haven't decided if I want to go that route or just modify a Hasbro suit.

That is what I had waiting in the wings if this one didn't turn out, if you do that one let me know how it turns out!
