Looking good DD! Glad to see you made it here and this section is getting some more action!
That Wookiee looks great! and so do all the Ithorinas, the blue one is a bit different.... I think it would look a little better if you dulled it and toned it down a bit. I like the idea but he seems to bright.
You have any shots of the Black wook?
Thanks for the welcome, SLC! Anybody who's got a Ron Burgundy quote on his posts is aces in my book!
This will probably be my new "customs" hangout. I'll still pop in over at RS, but recent events there have left a bad taste in my mouth. Besides, I like the backgrounds on my posts here better; I find Navy blue soothing.
I tend to agree with you on the Blue Ithorian being too bright. I went with Blue because the ones in KOTOR looked sort of gray-blue, and I kind of dug it. I'm going to give him a gray wash, and then spray him with some dullcote. I only wish I had Chewie's skill when it came to dry-brushing.
As soon as I take some new pics, I'll get one of the black wookiee up. In the meantime, here's a few others I have.
Here's a sniper scout trooper from BATTLEFRONT. This one involved the cutting, repositioning, and sculpting of the limbs.
Some rebel generals. In case you can't tell, I like Quarren and Trandoshans quite a bit for customs.
A VOTC field stormtrooper, and a Clone soldier from the Jabiim campaign. The clone started out as a white trooper, then I added the green ranking, which turned out well. Then I decided to try to detail the figure with a pen like Ricky UK does, and I ruined the figure. Some white touch-up and some dirtying up, and voila!
Finally, some Cantina trash! An Ugnaught (Yoxgit, perhaps?) and a Trandoshan thug. The Trandoshan was initially inspired by one Lance Quazar used in his interactive photonovel, and while digging up the parts he used in my fodder bin, I came up with this guy. He's shirtless...a little something for the ladies!
This was also my first attempt at a CHEWIE style paint job...I think it turned out okay.
There! That oughta liven up this forum a bit!
