My Yakfinites entry!
« on: August 23, 2011, 08:03 PM »
I just posted this at Yak and though I'd share here too.

Usidas Mon “Stinker”

During the Galactic Civil War Usidas was given the nickname “Stinker” after winding up drunk and accidentally falling into a Garbage chute.  By the time he realized what happened, he was covered in bile and trash. Being from Kel Dor the mask prevented him from registering the smell. Being still a little drunk and wanting more Rish 11 down his throat. He meandered straight back to the bar he came from running even the bartender  out of the place. Later on Usidas ran a smuggler crew on his modified BT-1E4 named “Sticky Finger”. Usidas ran the smuggling ring even through the Vong war. Last reports of him were near Dantooine alone aboard his ship. Living at 153 years old, he died in the cockpit of his vessel drifting in space for  pilots to see for eternity.

Very cool.  I like seeing the rarer aliens in different outfits/personas like this.  Great choice and really nice execution, especially selecting limbs with lots of articulation.

I like it too Orange...  My only critique really is changing up the "fingers".  I've always hoped for a keldor lacking the weird finger covers Koon wears since they appear to serve no purpose than decoration or something on him, unlike the mask of course.  Of course though, that'd be tricky to remove that and have it look right so I can see not doing it, but it'd be a nice way to really separate the parts from Plo Koon.

I'm into seeing weird aliens too, that aren't as common throughout the Saga, get a random schmuck type of character.

The parts really blended well there.  They're recognizable, but they're really plain/simple, but still add some little details like padding and pockets taht make them look sci-fi and functional.

Thanks for the opinion and response Jesse James. Yeah, just through him together to be a background character for my Photnovel next year hopefully.

Yeah, the hands I wish I would've done like you said. Though maybe it's a custom in Kel Dor to do that.

I should note that every piece is painted. That's how I work, "No piece left Unpainted!". He-he. :D

That's cool, OP. Keep up the good work.

Who knows why the fingers are covered? A custom as you mentioned, a sensory organ that humans don't have?

Late to the party, but nevertheless wanted to chime in and give some feedback. That's a good looking figure, OP. I like the choice for the arms a lot. Paint apps look tidy and clean. Kudos for changing Koon's mask, makes this one stand out more.

I agree on the mask. It makes him look like a different character instead of Koon undercover. I like it. I wonder if that species comes in different skin colors?

It does, according to Wookieepedia: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Kel_Dor
