tykrazen's customs 8/7 Thrawn, organa Solo, Luuke, Karrde
« on: January 12, 2003, 08:13 PM »
Hey all!

I just posted some of my newest work over at theJawa.com's customs section including my new POTJ style Luke Skywalker: Dagobah Training.  You can check it out at...
www.thejawa.com/customs/tykrazen/tykrazen.php

And for a teaser here's a thumbnail...



I've been working on the Luke for some time now and I'm planning to do a Yoda: Starship Levitation (Which is why I've kept Luke's gaping jaw!).  Just trying to decide on some parts.  Love to hear feedback.

It's been one of my favorites to work on because I stumbled across the parts.  I taught me to work with the existing sculpt when removing or adding details.  In this case, I used the existing wrinkles in the shirt to guide when I placed them on Luke's T-shirt.  I have another custom I'm working on that uses the exact same torso as a base and you can't tell if you put them next to each other.

He also kinda looks like he has an upset stomach (just kidding).  Hey, they look nice and the paint job on both looks terrific.  Great job!

I really like the use of parts in these customs.  The Sabe head, the one from that animated space movie (looks pretty durn close to the reference, don't it!), and the Maul arms for your Moff.  One tip:  Once your premo/sculpey is cured, you can sand and shave it to give it a cleaner look.  Great Job!

Thanks for the kind words everyone :).

I appreciate the commants on the premo.  Even when I sand it down with 400 sandpaper the polymer clays still have a texture that drives me buggy.  Groznik will probably be my last large scale use of polymer clays for customs.  I'm slowly moving into wax.  My next two major sculpts -- Grand Moff Trachta and R5-D4 are using wax casts for the base of my resculpts.

Hi All!  I just finished my Yavin IV Rebel Ceremony display.  It's the first in what I hope will be an ongoing renovation of my collection display cabinets.
