I love Chiss. This turned out great. I like the drybrushing you did on the pants. You mixed the Obi-Wan and Kit Fisto pars together very well. The skin is very smooth too. I really like the Blue Cloak too, it is nice to see a Jedi who likes colors other than browns and whites. :)

Very cool and very original, great work!
What head did you use?  It looks familiar but I can't place it...
Why not give him a dark blue "outer tunic" to match his robes?  (By outer tunic I mean the softgoods on the Ep. II Evolutions Anakin)
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.

Looks great!  There's something about blue skin and white hair that makes me think of Star Trek though, I think there must have been an alien race in ST with those colors...

thanks for the great comments guys! it is a gijoe duke head. i had thought about doing his tunic in blue but i don't have one to mach the robe right now and i didn't want to use the same blue i used for the skin. i may paint the tunic in the futre, but for now i'm happy with it. i don't know if there was a blue alien race in startrek with the same colors, i never watched startrek. i was gunna go with black hair, but i thought white set the head apart from the other jedi i have. thanks again!

Wow! This is a very good custom. The paint is flawless. And I love the blue cloak. Did you just dye it or what? Im curious. A very good mix of parts as well. 
I remember my dream now.

Great job on this, it reminds me of a Chiss species.

I never thought that a Duke head would work out well for Star Wars, this goes to prove that I was wrong.

metal jedi: no i didn't dye it, it is a hand made cloak. i'vr recently been trying my hand at sewing custom cloaks. i have about a dozen that i've made(some better than others). there is a couple that are really good though. i'am trying to find somthing to soften up the material to make it hang mor naturaly to the figure, but i haven't found anything yet. once i get my technique down to where i'm happy with the look and if there is anyone interested, i was considering offering my cloak making services to fellow board members, but we'll see!

originally i was thinking of this figure as a chiss, but chiss have red eyes and i reall ylike the eyes the way they are, so i may have to change this charecters spiecies.

thanks for all the great comments guys, i really appriciate it and i really enjoy being on the boards here!

That's cool that you're teaching yourself how to sew.  I tried sewing a cloak for a custom Leon the Professional figure ... with disasterous results  ;)
I did teach myself how to braid for all of the Boba Fett Wookie Scalps that I've had to make recently  ;D

I was thinking the same thing. I'm not a fan of ST, but I remember seeing a figure that had blue skin and white hair, and this reminded me of that guy.

But it looks really good, the paint job on the face makes it look as though it was molded in blue. Great job on getting the paint on nice and even and smooth.

And the custom sewn cloak is neat too... what kind of material did you use for it?

Here is another of my custom Jedi. I like the way it turned out, he has a dark look to him. Anyhow, hope you guys enjoy and as always feel free to leave any comments or suggestions, thanks! :D

Jedi Padawan: Booka Zen Dee
Spieces: Human
Lightsaber color: Purple

Booka is Padawan to Jedi Master Pas Ayudda (custom). Booka has the natural ability to be in plain site and remain unoticed, which makes him well suited for undercover and infiltration missions. He is a great admirer of Jedi Master Mace Windu, which is why he chose to have a purple lightsaber. Booka Fights alongside his Master during the Clone Wars on Dantooine, where both the Padawan and his Master are killed during the issue of Order 66.
