Hello!

So I've done a couple of these, but I always wanted to do one with the Jedi Robes and that cool hood. After my experiment with making cloth hoods on my Arkham Asylum Robin, I finally felt I could do one and not have it totally suck. Originally intended to do this for Mike Martinez's Star Wars contest, before we lost him. Miss you Mike!

Same basic recipe as before, but slimmer sculpting (just got smarter with it), and no sculpt on his left sleeve. This time I went with cloth, cut to look a bit loose like his sleeve, but glued on close to the arm. Then I painted over it to match the color better of the paint on the figure. His cloak/robe is the same cloth, with a wide cut shoulder area and little flaps that fold over tolet his arms slip through. You'll see in the photos it has a solid robe look, but flows like a cape too.

The hood was rough, but I think it came off correct. Custom sculpted the lightsaber hilt and used the colored piece of transparent plastic for the blade that I picked up i nthe RC section fo the hobby store.

Cut his scar into the head and then painted it to highlight. Eyes are Sith style-not sure if it's clear in these photos which I compressed to fit here.

Critiques welcome!

This is a really nice looking figure. For me anyway, it's about the small details that go into the work on these guys and you can tell that you put a lot of time in here. Great job.
