Brent's Customs - Update 1/22
« Reply #15 on: January 8, 2006, 01:23 AM »
Here is new custom I've started working on - a Jawa Sith Lord. This is a work in progress.  I have a bunch of Jawas that I've collected so it seems like a good idea that one of them would have found the dark side.  So far, its just a simple repaint.  Let me know what you think and what additions I could consider.   When I looked at the photos close up, I realize there is a lot of spots that still need touch up paint too :)

I like a Jawa Jedi. It is a new idea to me.

I too think the concept of a Sith Jawa is a neat idea, lol

My only thoughts that spring to mind is when I think of a Jawa that's gone over to the dark side, I see his face still being black (shadowed) and maybe adding another type of cloak in addition to his regular tatooinian (sp?) attire.  Can't go wrong with layering his cloaks:) 

Also, since Sith are big on technology, I'd also see maybe some sort of advanced breathing filter or even a larger breathing apparatus that was directly implanted onto/into him.

In any case, it's a really cool idea, AND nice work on your clones!

I really get a kick out of that Jawa. Greorbian made one back when we made Sith for the CCC. I agree that a black face would look better, you could make the eyes red though. Layering some softgood on there might work or you could even try to use some Yoda parts, and paint them darker colors for more of a Jedi feel.

Here's Greg's Jawa if you are interested:

Hee Hee what a funny litte Sith!  The idea of it is just funny in a way.  But in the Star Wars universe anything can happen. 

I'd paint the red face and hands black too, but whatever you want to do is absolutely up to you.  The red does give him an all new look and stands out.

Hmm, the consensus seems to be a black face.  I painted it red to differentiate from the other Jawas.   I've also thought about adding some metallic accents to the face.  I just want to do something to differentiate it. 

Meditate on this I must.

Finished up a Galatic Marine, its my first try at this one.  I had to mix up a custom pot of Maroon paint - got some help from my wife (keep in mind I'm colorblind).  He was fun to make but much harder than I expected.  This was my first attempt at leg swaps.  He's destined to join someone else's collection to help me pay for my Saga 2 figures.



The recipe is pretty simple (and I'm sure easily recognized):
Clone Commander Body and Kama
Saga 2 Snowtrooper Helmet and legs.
Shoulder "Pads" cut from the pauldron of the AT-TE gunner

I also did a little bit of work on one of my entries for the group project - Voolvif Man.  Obviously he's still a work in progress.

Het, great job Brent!  That Galactic Marine looks very well done (and the color looks awesome).  He has a unique look to him, and stands out from many of the others I've seen people make.  I like his neutral stance a lot.  Great work!

The Wolf guy is looking great too!  Can't wait to see the final result.

I posted my Clone Wars Jedi in the Monthly Group Project thread above but here's another shot of them here:



I was also playing around with an idea that a friend of mine came up with.   Here's what a Senator does on the weekend - "Kiss" Cover Band:

Nice KISS custom  ;D

I like the Clone Wars alien Jedi, especially the wolfman Jedi.  The armor looks good, but you need to put him in a big bubble  ;)
The Ithorian Jedi looks a bit skinny, maybe a softgoods robe would make him look bulkier?

I really like that Sith Jawa too!  ;D
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Wow, the Wolfman Jedi really rocks.  That's a great use of parts and the armor looks perfect.  The Ithorian is very well done too, I like his slender build.

The Kiss custom is hilarious.  It really does look like one of those freaks!   ;)

Emperor Palpatine: "Mas, what are you doing with that makeup and guitar?"
Mas Amedda: "Umm..Nothing, go away, just go away!"

Funny KISS custom Brent. Love that Roronn Corobb also.
