Wow, it's been a while since I was in here.  Very busy Holidays.

I'm not currently taking any classes.  Years ago, in high school, I clashed with the teacher becasue all he taught was copying images and still life.  "If you can't see it, you can't draw it"  Whatever.

So, aside from some technique, I am primarliy self taught.

I have done customs of many of my characters.

My final new post of the day...

I assembled all of the figures I have customized or embellished in some way for a group shot.

I got to counting and came up with almost 80.  I realize there are customizers out there who have hundreds, but I thought it was a significant number.  I counted and these customs make up just over 10% of my displayed collection!

I also got a droid kick recently.  Here are the results.

The first is an Imperial Surgeon Droid.

Next, I took a plain old Gonk and weathered him up a bit.

I think the base for this one came in a Spy Kids pack.  This little guy is a low cost starship maintenance droid.  He is equipped to climb all over rough terrain (like the outside of vessels like the Falcon), and has several interchangable tools and grippers for specific tasks.

This next one is a sentry droid, programmed to patrol estates of the wealthy, and deal with unauthorized visitors.  They are not an uncommon sight in some of the high level apartment building of the Coruscanti elite.

This is a courrier droid, common in the halls of the senate.  Whether in the Old Republic, the Empire, the New Republic or the Galactic Alliance, representatives require a quick, discreet method for sending messages to aides and others.  This droid is equiped with encryption enabled holorecording equipment, advanced high voltage anti-tamper measures, and can easily scale walls in order to scurry over the throngs of people in the senate's corridores.

Whether on a construction site or in a busy spaceport, there is always a need for a medium duty labor droid.  This model is in the same capability class as the popular ASP series, but posseses a higher level processor, so can handle more complicated tasks.

And finally, my favorite, an antique Astromech.  This model is the same vintage of the R-1 series, with similar capabilities (and limitations).  The manufacturer of this model was simply outmarketed by Industrial Automaton.  In fact, IA later stole part of this models upper torso profile when designing the head for their R5 series. If you look close, you will see Bith horns and a guitar string used on this guy.

Thanks and let me know what you think!

It's been a while. but I worked on quite a few new pieces around the holidays.

The first is Darth Vader.  I was not happy with the 'Sith Eyes' hasbro was able to come up with, so I embellished.

Next is a group of Jawas.  I weathered the cloaks and added some detail to the belts n stuff.

I was digging through old parts and came across a Yoda.  Even though all three members of his species that we have seen have been Jedi Masters, I figure there must be some more out there.  This one is a diminutive commando type.

I also was not happy with the General Kenobi that came in the battle pack, so here's my take.

Let me know what you think!

Excellent, bot the wokling and the other three!  What do you use for sculpting material?  I'm guessing Super Sculpey or something similar?

Excellent work!  I really like the one that is sitting.

The only critique I would make is to either thin out or round off the front edge of the hoods so it does not look like the material is so thick.  Very miron stuff though.  Great job!

That's nearly always the first question when people see the room in person.  "Who dusts it?"

Well, I've been in the house 2 1/2 years.  I've reorganized/expanded the shelving twice.  Things have been fully dusted each time, so I guess I do it about once a year.  If I keep the room to the door closed when not in use. dust is not as much of a problem.  There are, however, tiny spiders everywhere...  or maybe their tiny B'omar monks?

Thanks.  I had collected many of the original Micro Machines.  My little brother had collected almost all of them.  He's 10 years my junior.  When he turned 20 he declared that he was too old to collect toys so he gave me all of his.  That included most of the Micro Machines, plus it gave me a lot of army builders and a box of custom fodder.

I built the three sabers from original designs.

Most fo the vintage peices were from when I was a kid.  The ones I used for customs were either no longer valuable or double that I have picked up over the years.

Hey, thanks everyone!  I appreciate the comments.  I actually have desings in mind for two new vessels, and about 20 other character drawings I want to complete.  I have one other project to finish up first though.

Angry_Ewok, I guess I have to agree.  I tend to like my results better in pencil.  In all fairness, the four digital pieces you see here are my first four, so I'm really still finding my way into that medium.

Thanks all!  I appreciate the feedback.

and for Jediknight760071, the Montross recipe...

Let's see, if I recall, it was the 300th figure Boba Fett torso.  Djas Puhr (sp?) legs and holsters, one arm was from Dr. Grant from Jurassic Park, and the other arm was from the kid with the hang glider from JPII.  I also used his head as a place holder becasue it fit nicely inside the Jango helmet.

They were the kids from Spy Kids.  Never saw the movie, so I couldn't tell you what their names were.
