Nice update.

I love the parts mix on the Diva. Thel meld together very well. The Pirate's jacket works well. Is it removable or did you have to cut it off the original fig.?

The Weequay looks good, except for the robe, which to me, look like it was cut for maturnity wear. I think a nice vest would go a long way to improving this custom.

Keep up the great work!

The Jacket is glued down in a couple of places but its relatively easy to remove.  There is a whole in the back (upper shoulder) where the pouch thing she is wearing is attached also.


I'm finishing up another custom for Gardulla's Fortress.  Here is a Twi'lek Beast Master.  The perspective is off a little in this photo.  The head doesn't look quite as large in person.



Recipe:
Head - Orn Free Ta, eye patch sculpted with greenstuff.  Scarring also added with greenstuff
Torso - Boss Nass
Arms, Legs - Malakili

I didn't realize how hard it would be to get the legs to swap out of the Boss Nass body.  I basically had to sacrifice the leg articulation (not that there was much there anyway) to glue them into place.  I may need to touch up some the face to hide the blue that leaked through :)

wow, that looks great! the green skin and the spots look just awsome. good parts mix too. i might add a skirt or kilt type deal to him, just a suggestion, it may hide the strange look of the leg joints. great custom though!

WOW.  Now I need to make that kilt.  I totally agree, it would really help improve this custom of mine.  Thanks for the ideas guys!

What a great use of parts that typically no one ever uses. He is one of the most bizaar aliens I've ever seen. I think he should be a space pirate instead of beast master.

Brent, your updates keep getting better and better!

Diva - Outstanding work here, the parts already look fantastic, but the repainting of the flesh is just perfect!

Beast Master - Nice!  Excellent color scheme and an interesting, ugly creature.   I love it.  And I agree, some sort of kilt/kama would top it off perfectly!

 :)

Really nice looking and original stuff man!  I love that beast master!  That kilt looks dynamite!  Very original concept and great execution!  They could be used in Black sun dioramas, boonta Eve, Jabbas dioramas, cantinas etc.  I love when customs can be used in a variety of displays.  Really cool stuff !
NOTE TO HASBRO,
SA JANGO would sell quite well!

Outrider - thanks for the compliments.  I wish I could claim that kilt but I can't.  That was actually added w/ photoshop (or something similar) by Word Weaver.  I'll adding pictures of the actual update in my next reply.

Bumpity....

I've gone back and added a custom kilt to this figure.  I think its a 100% percent improvement on him.  Thanks to Jedistyle and Word Weaver for the Kilt inspiration.

I've also named this guy - Aat'nro Eerf, the beast master for Gardulla the Hutt.





Here is a group photo of Aat'nro with his work in progress employer

They make such a lovely couple, soooooo hideous, I like the skirt design you gave the Beast master, it looks really cool.
On Gardulla, I'd make her head a bit more pointy at the top, she didnt seem to have ethose perfect squished heads we see that Jabba did.

Great job on this set!  Its great to see some completely original concepts and designs such as these 2 cool figures.  Great to see such a great custom hutt.  They both came out great.  Each one has great features , the beast master's kilt came out great.  Nice to see some custom soft goods! 

Gardula is just awesome.  Those breasts....sexy!

Aat'nro is awesome!  I love the parts choice and paint apps and the use of the kilt is really cool.  Great figure, he fits right in with a Huttese court!

Gardulla - Looking good so far.  The sculpting blends seamlessly with the actual figure.  I can't wait to see her finished

Weequay - friggin' cool!  He looks badass and, like Aat'nro, definitely fits in with a Huttese court.

I really like the parts choice/paint apps on the Diva.  I didn't realize Rystall's hair was removable.  Interesting and effective idea to put it on Sly Moore's head.
