Now, her... ahem... enhancements came out more exaggerated than I expected. Half the time I look at this figure, I think they look okay, then I think they look comically large. Oh well.

The entire figure is a Clone Wars C-3P0, shoulders converted to bewbs, torso sanded and slimed, and head modified.

I was exposed to the work of artist Hajime Sorayama at a ripe young age, and while I don't find his work especially enticing, he did seem to pioneer a lot of things and images that are now cliche in sci-fi. And though I've never seen it, the Metropolis robot was also an inspiration, which seems fitting as I believe it was also the basis of 3P0's initial designs. I added a bit of a glow to her eye in the images as well. Also got in so good dry brushing and wash practice, and am very pleased with the results.

Time will tell if I end up liking the chest mods or not, and I might redo them or remove them eventually, but I am pleased with how she came out, was really only about a 1 day custom.

Okay, tried something different with her robo-bewbs. I like this much better, not as exaggerated or angled.

I'll redo her glamor shots, but I'm calling her done now.

Awesome shedroid Dan. I have to admit I liked her "cans" the way they were. The new version is good and the old one looked kinda odd...but in a good way. More nostalgic to me. Still a great droid though.

I like the new one better - there was something really odd about the way they looked sliced off. :shock: Well done sir!

I'm loving the robo-chick. Here's what will probably be my last entry for this yak-finities. She's a Human Female Mandalorian that I named Ra'el Krask of the Krask Clan. I did a new armor chest sculpt and gauntlet sculpt. Her gauntlet saber blade is removeable as well.

Mike,

I really like all of your female Mandos. The sculpted armour, gauntlets and additional accessories are great
and make them unique Warriors in the rows of Mando fighters.
The Twi'lek Mando is definitely my favourite as even the sculpted mask looks perfect for her.
But the purple Mando is not bad either. Especially the blade gauntlets make her look not only sexy but also
dangerous (a real naughty girl) :wink:

The GI Joe "Ripcord" shoulder pads work really well for Mandos.
I think I will try to make a Dr. Demagol v.3.0 where I am going to add these kind of shoulder pads, too.
Thanks for a great idea.

Hello,

I'm not a regular poster, but usually lurk around and really enjoy all the great customs that are posted here.
These contest are very fun, and though I never got anything done in time before. As for the custom,
I wanted to do this for a while but I guess I needed the additional motivation of this contest to get it done.
Since it is a crossover 'females' is probably the only category that will fit for her. I don't know if anyone
actually recognizes the character as it is not 1:1 but rather a "how could she look in Star Wars" version...

Image

Head, torso, hips, upper arms - Sigel Dare
Legs - Darth Talon
Lower Arms - Deena Shan( Stealth armor )
Skirt-thingy - Anakin Skywalker (Clone Wars Animated)

( I might exchange the arms as the ellbow joints are giving me a headache ... everytime I move her arms the paint is gone afterwards...)

Hey buddy as far as the paint rubbing goes, if you customize full time, i would invest in a dremmel and choose a small bit to grind those joints down, if you are worried about breaking the elbows or joints just use a blow dryer and heat up those joints until they are soft then POP or u can heat up some water and do the BOIL AND POP TECHNIQUE. hope this helps in the future take care and nice custom.
