Shaak Ti

Post by luminara34 on Sat May 16, 2009 8:36 pm

Hi Everyone,
I'm new here and thought I'd introduce myself and tell you a little bit about me, I'm a young'ish' mum with three Star Wars Lego collections to find funds for, so I decided to try my hand in customising mini figure's first at to give my younglings the figures I just couldn't afford, then moved onto selling them to make money to buy the figures and sets they wanted!(If you can't beat them join them) I started with my favourate character Shaak Ti so I thought I'd start by sharing her with you.
I look forward to your comments an suggestions!

Hope I've put the pic on right, Please advise if notxx

Well, the picture didn't go on right; you'd need to select the URL of the image - ending with .jpg, .png, etc. - and put [img] tags around that. Wink

But the figure's great! I really like the headpiece. Very well-fitted to her head, certainly. Smile

Indeed his stuff is! Wink

To get the picture link - ending in .jpg - follow this link:

http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=4&u=13892169

Select 'view image' and the picture should come up as its own stand-alone page.

Copy and paste the URL at the top:

http://i89.servimg.com/u/f89/13/89/21/69/img_0810.jpg

And put [img] tags around it!

That's pretty much it.

Oh, and welcome aboard!

You can get a signature under your post by clicking "Profile" and then finding the tab that says "Signature", make sure the image is 240x180 or smaller though.

Welcome, by the way! Your work is fantastic! Smile

'View image' appears as an option on Ctrl-right-Click. Select it and it takes you to the picture separately. Wink

'Morning' all!

Hi Matchstick and Jens, Thanks for the comments.

Cheer's CG and Jedi Joe I think my small brain understands now, it was a bit late last night, well for me, my brain stops when the kids hit the sack!

Nice one Thunder-blade for sorting out the pic. Yes as you said the head-piece is hand sculpted out of epoxy putty but, the next one I make I will be trying casting it, can't wait to see the finished result!
Kams site was one of many that inspired me to start all this, I was going to buy them off him an do it that way, they were never in stock or I kept missing them so just tryed it out one day!

Aki, Thank you! The kids help out too, they give me some great ideas.

That looks like a very good mini figure. The detailing on the head piece is very well painted/sharpied. Although the torso looks like its getting bit by bit torn off. Anyways welcome to CABG. Smile

Agreed the Decal on the torso isn't at it's best, it frayed slightly I did re-do it before I sold it but unfortunatly didnt take a pic I'm working on the new one and promise I will not be as sloppy this time! Wink

The head and head dress are awesome. The torso looks a little too glossy and not Legoish enough, but you've got an awesome start on my favorite Jedi Wink

Nice, I think that you need to put a bit more blue on the tip of the right *horn* thing. (I guess) But it looks great!
