Should I put up my customs again?
« on: March 30, 2003, 12:26 PM »
Many of you know that I have customizing since POTF2 was released in 1995/1996. I had a website showcasing my work.
I took down that section of my website for I was finding many of my customs on other sites saying that they were their own creations.

Anyways, I have been getting some e-mails from people who ask where did my customs toys go? I told them I took them down. It seems that some people want me to put my customs back up on my site. So I have to ask. Should I or should I not I re-take pictures of my custom figures and put them back up on my site?
If there is a demand to do so I will in time.
If I do I will have to watermark them in some way so others do not steal my work and pass it off as their own.

An update on my customizing. I have not had the time to do any customizing since last May or so. So I do not really have anything new. But I have a list of customs that I want to do. I will be getting back into customizing again, when I do not know. It is a passion that I have and want to continue.

So what do you think you fellow customizers?

Yes or No!?!

I say throw them back up David!  Based on some of the other nice work I've seen you do (like the props), your figure customs must be pretty nice looking as well, and I always enjoy perusing some nice custom figures.  Just throw some watermarks on them, and you should be fine.  Looking forward to seeing them...

You bet ya David. Water mark them & post them. I don't do customs myself but I really enjoy the customs that people make. Go for it.  :)

Ok. I will retake some pictures of my customs so that they at least have a uniform background, slap on a watermark, and build a page for my custom figures.

It will take a bit of time...

I started to take some pictures of my custom figures and toys. I need to edit them, put on a water mark, ect.
I think I willbuild a page on my site this week so people can know about my custom toys page coming soon.

I hope by the next week or two to at least have up some images.

I'm looking forward to seeing them too!  Someday I need to get my act together and get my customs up and get a site of my own going.  I've got over a 100 customs now, and I think a lot of them are good enough to show.  I might be too embarrased to show some of my low quality work though... ;)

I know what you mean. I also have well over 100+ figures, some vehicles, and some dioramas. I have been going through the ones I like best to put up on my site.
I started taking lots of pictures. I have even decided to throw in a few of my early works that I like. It is amazing to see some of the first customs to the more recent ones. You can just see the improvement.
Well, anyways like I said I started to take pictures of my custom figures. I hope to have some up on my site in the next week depending on my free time.

So far I just have a page up with titles for my Custom Creations. It is a start in getting them up there. :)

Wow, that's a helluva lot of customs there David!  Can't see them too closely, but some look pretty dang cool!  (not to say they aren't all cool, just that some are more appealing to me than others!)   ;)
