Hey those look pretty damn cool. Just out of curiosity, which Momaw Nadon sculpt was easier to work with, POTF2 or Saga2?

The one on the left looks like he has no neck. The other one looks perfect.
Sculpt something around the neck to make it look like its as thick as its supposed to be.

Other than that Cool concelpts. Keep em comming.

Excellent work Brent. I have to say looking at these pics has given me a couple of ideas for some UGP concepts.

I do have to agree with Glassman on the neck problem. They both look great otherwise.

Update time.  I fixed the problems with the Ithorians that were bugging me.  I've named them Rowna and Nurow Candora.  I also finished up their lead singer, named Syltana.

First Up is a solo for Syltana.  She is the same species as Rystall's alien mother.  (Anyone got the name of this one?).   



Here is a group shot.  Rowna is the shorter one.  I took this picture with a little less light so that the reflective vest on Syltana didn't reflect so much.



Finally, here is the band in action.  Rowna plays the electro-organ and Nurow specializes in the Uboo.







I fixed Rowna by dremeling out the head a bit more and trimming back the neck post.  I tried to maintain articulation but was unsucessful.  I had to glue him down  :-\  Oh well, he is articulated everywhere else!

On Nurow, I added some extra sculpted trim around the sash to make it not look quite so "glued on".

I'm not sure if I'm entirely pleased with the way the instruments turned out.  I'll see if they grow on me.

As always, I welcome comments and criticisms.  Enjoy.


P.S.  I'm taking suggestions for name of the "Band".

Here's another quick update.  Nothing super fancy about these customs.  Mostly just repaints.  I needed a variety of droids for the upcoming Photonovel work.

X-LOM:  This is second revision protocol droid that acts as a translator for Gardulla the Hutt.  "He" was spliced together by Jawas and sold for a very cheap price.  Gardulla, like Jabba, has a temper when it comes to translators so it doesn't pay to have an expensive unit. 



Recipe is easy enough - Head EV-D9 with a 4-LOM body.  The head is a bit loose but it allows for full articulation.

3-1B4 Medical Droid:  This medical droid attends to Gardulla's Bacta Tanks.


Just a straight 2-1B repaint.  Very subtle on the bronze, silver, and black.

Power Droid



This is the second power droid I've repainted.  They both came out lookging very similar.

DUM-7R - this is a modified Pit Droid.  It is used in Gardulla's medical facility as an assitant.







Recipe:
Head - Senate Camera (EP1 Palpatine)
Body - EP1 Pit Droid (from one of the podracers I think).

Looks great!

Though I would be a bit concerned with one of those pit droids assisting with medical work...someone might wake up with new thruster pods!!! (I am not only a pod racer pilot, I am my own pod racer!)

So is X-LOM green from Gardulla slime? (Like what happened to C-3PO?)

Looks great!

Just so you know...I'm gonna make a Jango like that...no reason to post it later, but I thought you'd like to know. It's really a great looking figure and I'm looking forward to making it.

Thanks for all the kind words.

Straxus - yes, my pit droid will only have very menial tasks and nothing life dependent :)

Jediknight - the Jango turned out pretty well.  I think the Han body might be a bit too "thin" or at least not bulky enough; however, I still think the custom works.

Xanthos - I love power droids.  Glad you liked him too.

Nice update,

I'd have to say that the Taller Ithorian is my favorite of the lot. Great Paint aps on the Robes. It really gives the Clothe a lot of depth, and the collar piece really helps keep the Head looking natural on that Body,
Where is the Body from?

Keep up the great work,

Fritzkrieg

Re: Brent's Customs - Updated 8/19 - Tatooine Aliens
« Reply #237 on: August 20, 2006, 01:08 AM »
Thank Fritz, the body for the Ithorians are from the ROTS Mas Amedda figure.  Great body under that hulking robe.

I've decided on a  name the Slyorians.  That was submitted by someone from FFURG (I'm pretty sure).  A close runner up was the Midi-thorians.

Anyway, update tonight on four random Aliens for Gardulla's Palace or other parts of Tatooine's underworld.

Xandor Doth

Head/Hands: Ponda Baba
Body: Saga Lott Dodd

Lithru Qosh

Head: Klaatu
Body: ROTS Utapau Warrior
Legs: Saga Sora Bulq (I think)

Rynth Juca

This is a no paint custom
Head: OTC Myo
Torso: VSTC Tusken
Hands: Saga2 Sora Bulq (I think)
Legs: EP1 Darth Maul (trust me)
Skirt: ROTS Shaak Ti

Guintho Marloors

Head: Ellorrs
Body: Not sure, I could find out if I tried POTF2 Cantina Band Member
Hands: ROTS Mas Amedda
Cape: Saga 2 Garidinan

The head is actually a cast I made from the Ellorrs figure and painted from scratch.  I'm definitely curious on thoughts on that one.


Here is the whole Motley Crew.

Brent, they are all gorgeous.  I need to try casting, it's a really hot area of customizing right now.  I can't wait to see what else you make for the UGP!

I really like 'em, espically the duros, great cast, great paint apps.  You might want to change your thread title to reflect the update though.
