My 1st Photonovel
« on: April 19, 2004, 10:41 AM »
Hey all, I just wanted to give you all a heads up that my 1st of many photonovels has been posted at thecustomalliance.com.  It is called "CRISIS ON ABRIDON."

Check it out, let me know what you think of it!  Email me at pike1067@aol.com, or send me a PM!

Great stuff my man!

I love the head and hand swaps that you've done...theya re so simple and yet tremendously effective in creating neat little background aliens and humans that it turns into some great scenes

Love the Platform scenes and I really like the Holo Sidious/Gunray scenes.  The use of that base a projector was brilliant

Good stuff CHEWIE!!!  Look forward to more

Aw, thanks guys.  As long as Dan Curto is willing to post them, I will be willing to make more.  A lot more probably. ;)

Has anyone read the book Darth Maul:  Shadow Hunter?  It takes place right before EPI, which coincides with the timeline of my very amateur photonovel series.  I just started the book, and am holding off doing the next installment in the series because I am thinking about using part of the Darth Maul book as a basis for the story.  Is it a good book?

Wow, that was an awesome photonovel, I implore you to make more.

Anyway, I saw you had more than a few class A customs mixed in there. How did you make some of them get that weathered look?

Also, shadow hunter was a good book, IMO.

Let me see about those customs...

For the bounty hunters in the bar, I dry brushed a light mix of black, gray and brown acrylics over the initial paint applications.  The middle bounty hunter is my favorite, with the hood and big coat.  Also, I like that blue Dug from the POTJ Sebulba figure.

Thanks for the compliments, I will make many more very soon, and thanks for the review on the book.  I really like it so far.

 :P

Awesome stuff man, I love those customs! My favorite would have to be the Shaak Ti one. Very cool.  :-*

It's a thoroughly terrible book, in my opinion.

Terrible?  I'm about 1/3 of the way through it and so far it's pretty fun I think.  I'm not sure yet if I want to add some of the events into my next story.

Man! That's great...I love all the customs in there...so great...


I think with a bit of paint I could create some Corsec officers based on this little puppy. :)

Cool stuff Justin!  I agree with Scott - amazing what a different world of Star Wars inhabitants you can create with some simple body part swaps.  Makes me wanna go out and buy a buttload of more figures to yank apart.

Looking forward to more...   8)

P.S.  I assume you don't need any pictures hosted anymore, like you mentioned to me a couple weeks ago...?

Good work can't wait to see more
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Thanks for the kind words guys.

Jedimac, well I might still send some pics of some assorted dioramas if that might be ok?

I read it CHEWIE.  I liked it so much that I read it a second time.  

I have enough left in this gun for a few shots on stun, or 1 shot set on kill.  I bet Qui-Gon wishes he had set it for kill given where the blast lands!   ;)

Nice photonovel!  I made those same Aqualish and Ithorian senators way back when you first gave me the idea of the Lott Dodd head swaps.  The Rodian Senator looks good too when you use the CT Greedo head.

Good job!
