I said it in your other thread and I'll repeat it here: I really like this custom.  The parts look great and the "plain" look to him is perfect for his backstory.  Nice job!  ;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.

Very good work there Perennial.  You are really getting proficient with your use of different parts.  I am amazed at how far you've come!  Cool backstory too.

I might dry brush him a bit, but other than that I wouldn't change anything.

Thanks Guys! I was thinking of giving him a grey drybrushing, actually. Maybe a tanone since concord dawn is kind of like the old west and naturally, there's sand there.

That makes it 5 for JD. 1 for FFURG. I'll have my Snoova done this week as probably will glassman. So projected I see 5JD to 3FFURG. But we shall see if there are any suprises.

I mean he may be my first 12" custom and He may be me as a jedi not a sith.

Down to the wire.... I have cast my head this morning, and i gotta paint that tonight.
I will post progress pics and finish product all together.
Since i never customized a 12" figure, i never really understod why people switched the body to a "Dragon or BBI" body.... I get it now.
Wish i had one laying around.

Getting the sash on the tunic the right color is the hard part. I got the under tunic and the pants colored to my liking, i cant get the over the shoulder sash right.

Pics tonight, or tomorrow morning.

Looks good Tijuana, plain and simple yet effective.  That head is a good match for the Windu body, even if it wasn't a custom of yourself it would still work well as a random custom Jedi.

Glassman, I am looking forward to seeing what you present to us.   :)
