Argh! :-) All technical aspects are perfect, the customs, the dioramas, the photography, the special effects, the plot, the dialogue... what is there to say? I do wish you'd pick up the pace! But thank you for this, really, awesome.

I posted it on the PN alliance site:

Thanks bud, I am appreciative for the feedback and support!

Yep, not a long chapter but it took forever to make it! These are so time consuming as you know.

Thanks for posting it at Photonovel Alliance!!

I was wondering if the junk is fixed in place. If not, you can change things up a bit in different shots so locations will be slightly different. Movable walls/Greeblies might also help. I think a few small changes would be enough to double the settings.

You'd have to really plan out your shots for continuity though.

Good question - and in the interest of space and resources, most of that is modular. Very little of it is fixed in place.

Basically, the "ground" area is an insulation board base, with paper mache ground/hills made, and coated in several layers of wood glue, then painted reddish brown. Then a mix of glue and paint added on top, and some sand sprinkled on. That's the part that's "fixed" in place.

After that, the walls and greeblies are all moveable, and I have a lot of sand that can me moved around with a paint brush to try and create the illusion of them walking around in different areas.

The actual "ground" of the planet diorama is only 2x2 feet. You can get them here.

Chewie,

I'm finally catching up on some feedback and responding to my own! This is the third or forth time I've got to look at this chapter, and I really enjoy it each time. I can't really add much more than what has already been said, but I really love The Maker as a character. The look of him, and just how creepy it must be for anyone to be in his presence. I love stories like that! Same with the feral droids. It would just be so weird to know they were roaming around like that.

As always, I love your sets and photography. Going forward, I can't wait to see more of the Maker and his creations! Plus, I really love the prisoner uniforms. Using the Indiana Jones body for the ripped up one was really a nice touch. :)

Thanks bud! Appreciate you taking the time to read, and to share your thoughts. I know how hard it can be to find the time!

I'm glad you like The Maker. I've tried to not share too much about him - part of the fun is allowing for the reader to make up their own mind on his origin, what he really does there, etc. Maybe that makes him more creepy? I don't know. But I kind of have enjoyed limiting his background. That kind of goes for the droids too. But, there will be more shown/explained regarding all of that soon.

Thanks, I am mostly satisfied with the sets -but never really happy with my photography. I need to get better with lighting. I'm going to experiment a bit more with the next chapter. And thanks on the custom using the Indy body! That one was fun to make.

As always - thanks for your support and feedback Jodo!!
