i realize that the deadline has come and gone for this tributes closing, but i still would like to contribute just for appriciation of the community and Mercury Art Studios.....so while i realize that these will not count towards the prize id like to share these whith you and i hope you enjoy them.
first off, id like to share some thoughts and memories with you.....recently ive returned to the customizing community after a long hiatus. i was looking forward to getting back into the hooby and picking back up on some projects with some friends on the boards. im not much for commisioning figures from toheer customizers, i understand how time consuming the hobby can be and that it can be hard to finish projects and to be honest i much prefer to try my hand at any and every idea, weather it comes out or not. but i have to say i have always been and am to this day a huge fan of Mike's work. i mesaged Mike about a commision for a custom twilek warrior jedi....im sure we all remeber all the shirtless twileks he created and how super sick they where. we messaged back and forth brainstorming and had a good time coming up with ideas for this figure. he finally messaged me that he had gotten started and was moving along, and the next post he said he said he would have pictures for me the following week....well i hadn't heard from Mike for a bit, and once i made my way back to yakface and was browsing the boards i learned about the tragic loss of Mike. i am truly hart broken at his passing and im regretful the him and i never were able to finish our project as id love to have one of his amazing works in my collection. this tribute is a fitting, amazing and fun way to celebrate Mike, ill always remeber him as a great community member, an absolutley amazing cutomizer, a good person and a great friend......these are for you Mike....may the force be with you.
