thanks for the kind words Chewie.. I owe it all to the great customizers from the forum including your self. You guys have really inspired me to improve on my work and paint skills... :D I just wish I can paint faster. I usually takes me about 5 days to finish a piece. That includes priming, base coat and detail working 2-4 hours a night.. :wink:

Yeah, these things are certainly time consuming.

That's part of why it's so hard to ever try and do commissions... it's hard enough finding time for my own customs, but to make them and sell some too? Very tough... then it's hard to try and price anything too and be fair to yourself and the buyer. I can see why so many people just go the ebay route when they sell custom stuff.

Some great entries in this round.

Darth Sidious – Great work from your nephew, I am sure we will be seeing more from him in the years to come. And that Mon Mothma still gives me the creeps.

Rune Haako – the quad lightsabers on your Qymaen jai sheelal is a cool idea.

Darthcrassus – nice work on the dark Bastila, that’s still one of my favorite games. And the Bith sith is a great idea.

Tonphanan – That pirate Vader is to cool.

Drod26 – I was working on a dark Tiin, but yours is just amazing. Awesome paint job.

Yak Chewie – I love the medieval customs, especially the Fett. I have a dark yoda in the works too.

Here is my first entry: Darth Mindu. Just a simple repaint but I thought I would be a fun mirror image. I have a couple more dark jedi in the works.

Had to get in on this one.

First is Jedi Master Palpatine. In a different universe Claudus Palpatine was found by the Jedi and became a great Jedi Master.

Second is Dark lord of the Sith, Darth Maul. When Obi Wan leapt up Maul kept his wits and cut the Jedi in two. As he returned to Coruscant he encountered young Anakin in his fighter and destroyed him. Upon his return, he happened upon Dooku and Sidious discussing how to dispose of him. In a rage he was able to slaughter both Sidious and Dooku. From there he began his war on the Jedi......

Hey all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Here is my entry. It is Count Dooku as a Gungan and as a Jedi. So Count Dooku as a Gungan Jedi Master simply named Dooku. All the entries so far are really cool.

Great roundup! There was a drop off in entries from what we usually see, but I think that was due to the theme more than anything... it's not simple coming up with ideas for a theme such as this. Looking forward to the next round!
