I think the flash shows off glare that seems to make the paint look strange. If you look at it under normal light it looks really good. I'll touch it up towards the end.

She is getting a softgoods skirt. Darth_Ripley sent me a huge amount of leather for this project. I'm planning on putting that on tonight and painting the boots.

Painting a microman figure really works well. It takes paint typically in one cote and doesn't peal off at the joints like hasbro plastic does.  I've posed my slave girl leia in lots of poses and the paint doesn't come off at the joints. The nice thing about these figures is they are very easy to take apart and they go back together tightly.

I get my micromen from Zira28 on ebay. She sells them for a buy it now of $6.49 with $7.00 shipping for Japan. Great deal and she gets them here within 3-4 days. They come in lots of colors and chest sizes. I'd recomend the medium since large and xlarge are a little hard to work with.

Here it is with the gauze. It definately has texture but I think too much blue is showing thru. That is basically an olive green with a dry brush of black. I think I need to dry brush olive green again. The shoes also need to be painted and the belt needs to be fashioned.

A balloon huh? That's an interesting idea. I'm going to have to try that on my next jedi.

Anyway, Brent asked what color mix I used for that color. I use Tamiya Sky Blue, Flat White and Neutral Grey. It's probably 70% white, 15% blue, 15% grey. Not sure since I added color constrantly as I mixed and compared to the head.

I'll have a picture with the gauze idea later.

Here is a picture of Aayla with that sleave I talked about today. I've since taken it off and will tonight try out InRem's gauze idea.

Those cards look great. Where do you buy your bubbles? Is that vinyl cape jawa real or is the cape a reproduction?

Yah, your probably right. The fabric I'm using now is pretty thin and the gauze will probably be the same thickness.

I was thinking. What about glueing gauze onto the arm and painting it? That will hide the joints and look more like a sleave.

So where in the world is our traveling purple pimp daddy Kenobi?

That's a good idea to use the gauze. I'm going to have to try that. The mix of colors I used for the skin was a base of flat white. Then added drops of light blue and grey until I could get a color that matched the head. Its pretty random. I'll probably never get that exact shade of color again. I'll get the exact color names to you tonight.

Where's the reference photo? Did I miss it? It looks like a very solid human figure so far. It will be interesting to see how he turns out.

Thanks hemble. I put the cloth on the right arm also last night. I think it looks too thick like she is wearing a jacket arm. I'll take a picture tonight and probably remove it and just paint the arm. He paints are painted on now also. She needs shoes and her belt. The belt will be some leather strips from darth_ripley.

To the dismay of a lot of the fan boys out there, Ms. Secura is now wearing a shirt. I pieced it together from some Kaki fabric and glued it in place. I'm working on the right sleeve now. Here is a picture of my workspace and the state that she is in now.

Very nice. It would be cool to see them all in one picture.  Do you still have all of them for a group shot?

Have you considered making a dead Boba Fett? Kind of what he would look like after being digested for a few years.

How about some civilian casualties?

Outstanding!  :D I wish I could afford to have one of your 12" dolls. My wife would kill me if I bought such a thing. :'( This will serve as a great reference for my Microman version.

Well, it seems jedijaybird is ignoring my PMs and emails about sending the twins to me for casting. I know he is here since he posts everywhere on this board daily. I just don't understand why he won't respond to me. Anyway, its been two weeks since he said he would send them out for casting.

So does anyone have a set of the twins that I can cast for everybody? I know there is lot of interest in getting these things casted but I just don't understand why jedijaybird won't respond.
