Alright, after a work week from heck, helping a friend "emergency move" out of an apartment, and a couple of days of what I can only describe as allergies mixed w/ the flu, I can finnally take a moment to reply to things and post an almost done Daala. Thank goodness I don't have kids
Seriously, you parents are
Ooooh Pen, can i steal? I really like the depa face... It works great.
Thanks, G-man! I'm honored that you found my idea worth while & helpful - you put her to use w/ stunning results! I'm with Finds
on this one, if you make casts, consider me in line.
Wow, Pen, that IS a Depa head, isn't it? It works surprisingly well for Isard. I don't think you have to add a rank badge -- there are plenty of reference pictures where she doesn't even have one. If you're looking for things to do, though, you might paint the "riding crop" black, too -- might match her Imperial look better that way, and be distinguished from Mon Mothma's swizzle stick.
Thanks muchly Finds! And thanks for letting me bounce the idea off ya before I posted her here. It certainly helped.
As per your suggestions, I bought die for coloring the riding crop (and a few other things), and I've decided to leave off the rank badge. I like the idea of Imp-Intel not needing them.
Oh, and I wanted to say that I'm pretty sure your Isard was the reason I used Anika. Yours made me want to use as many female part as possible. I wanted her arms to look slender & feminine, (like on your Isard's), and the rest went from there
Pen, I LOVE your figure. I recognized the Annika parts, but the sculpy additions are amazing. really a terrific job all around. I only noticed those flaws after you pointed them out, but I'm sure the final version will be even more impressive. Great, obscure choice of head with depa, makes her really look original. Painting, sculpting is tops all around.
Thank you, L-Q! I'm glad you like the sculpty! I was pretty apprehensive about it at first - the stuff really isn't my strong point - but lord knows she needed it!
Thanks for commenting on it!
PenDragon - That Isard is just amazing... probably my favorite that anyone did. The parts choice was great, but the thing that really sets it apart for me is the paint scheme. Just freaking amazing.
*sniff* That is so cool! Thanks man! And as for the paint job, 'I learned it from watching you, CHEWIE, I learned from watching you!!!' Wow, I think I just dated myself, and probably offended someone... sorry
Pen Dragon, please do post dalla when you get her done.
