Hasbro and LEGO Join Occult Forces!

Boy, do I dig the building toy minifig. Small, full of character, easy to store, and usually crazy cheap: what's not to love about these guys? But The Kre-o Dungeons & Dragons line was missing something. No matter how many kre-o sets I looked through, I just couldn't find that last member of my D&D party. Fortunately, LEGO was there to pick up the slack...

Droids Customs progress report - Washout!

by Bill Cable
on 2014-04-16, 06:10:52

So... one of the things I hope to capture with this next Droids Custom is the tonal feel of the original Droids artwork. Looking back at my first 4, most of them are too VIBRANT. The old Droids cards weren't muted, per se, there are some really bright colors on them. But they appeared washed out, IMO. I'm guessing they were airbrushed based on the speckling, but it could also be some watercolors. If only I'd had the chance to buy the original artwork back when it wouldn't cost multiple tens of thousands of dollars...

I've started the process of getting those more washed out tones. And I think it's going well. I also wanted to change up the color palette a bit... go for a greener swamp and a browner hut.

My other bit of progress - I stopped by Steel City Con over the weekend and scored some critical supplies. I've begun building my own Droid Army! Ahsoka beware!!

Happy Easter!

Hey all, been crazy busy at work lately and as such, haven't had any chance to get anything up on the site. (heck, I don't even have time to take or even eat my lunch anymore, but I guess you gotta earn a living.) Add to that the radiator and thermostat on my car gave out last week, so it's been no end to the fun and frolics on my end. But I wanted to take a quick parsec and wish everyone a Happy Easter and hopefully that big bunny (no, I don't mean Jaxxon) will leave you lots of treats. Hope to be back in action soon. After all, we're getting close to that year away mark for Celebration Anaheim, not to mention @ two and a half weeks away from May the fourth. So until next time (whenever that is), don't go into a chocolate coma and May the Force be with you!!!

Introducing the Droids Customs progress report!

on 2014-04-09, 06:00:44

Hello loyal readers! As I will no longer be posting a comic here three times a week (and as you can see, the top story no longer points to C7YB... you can get there from the link to the left), I needed something ELSE to post here. And I figured I'd post progress reports on my customs projects. I started my first web site - SWDrawings.com - to showcase my artwork. Now things have come full circle!

As announced in the contest last week, my first new custom will be Zuckuss (Vintage), which is really 4-LOM. I'll be modifying art I did for a summer social proof card a few years back. So what better way to start than to show you the original, unmodified art?

Of course that image IS modified... apologies for the watermark. I don't want my custom Droids Zuckuss to show up on eBay from some unscrupulous copy-cat BEFORE I actually produce my own. It wouldn't be the first time somebody stole my custom Droids art to make their own customs. Jerks.

My goal for improving the art prior to production is to make the color pallet more Droids-like. Most of the Vintage Droids cards look a lot more airbrushed to my eyes. I really hope to capture that effect. We shall see...

Until next week!

And the winner are...

Second Prize: Broc W. from Murray, KY chose the Droids Zuckuss.

Third Prize: frequent CC.com contest winner Michael T. from Staten Island, NY had no choice but to accept Commodius.

Congrats to all our winners! To everyone else - better luck next year. Assuming we actually do something next year...

I posted about this on some other site's forum, but no one seems to want to take me up on it. Anyway, it seems to me the Clone Wars Season 6 is hellbent on spiting fans and retconning some of our favorite parts of the ...

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:

After six seasons, I am fairly confident that the entire script of the original trilogy has been recycled at some point in the Clone Wars.

Your mission, Internet, is to reconstruct "A New Hope" by splicing together dialogue from the Clone Wars cartoon. Do it. Now.
