Whenever I start on a new custom, the first thing I do is find a few good pieces of source art online. I arrange them together on a single page and print them out in color. I keep these sheets onhand while I am working on the custom. These are the sites I use to find source art and costume references.

The weapons are designed for lego figures, but can be easily modified for minimates. Hit the jump to read about the simple modifications.
