Droids Custom original art - a question for my readers!

I've been thinking about something lately. As you guys are well aware, I draw and color the art I use for my Droids Customs. That's what makes them special - they're not just stolen pictures I download off Google. They're my own original creations. And while I've eagerly sold off ...

Pretty happy with them. I do like the single blast explosion better. This one's going to be fun to color. I'll keep you posted!

"Star Wars: Resistance" - a relatively spoiler free review

I enjoyed the first episode. Not sure what else I can say other than I liked the characters and am looking forward to seeing where the story will take them. When I started watching it, I was hoping for some sort of opening crawl, as given the title and the fact Poe Dameron was in it, I knew it had to take place around Episode VII, but wasn't sure if it was before or after it. Without giving too much away, by the time the episode ended, you realize it occurs PRE-Ep VII. The animation style was okay, I didn't like or dislike it. Only time will tell as to where I'd place it compared to "The Clone Wars" and "Rebels" , but I feel they're off to a strong start. I'm looking forward to seeing whom else from the known universe will make an appearance besides Poe, a certain princess, and a female First Order Captain. I really like the episode was an hour in length (minus commercials, of course). Not sure if all of them will be this long, or if that was just for the premiere. Wish they had had some new SW-related toy commercials to go along with the show as well, but I guess we can't have everything.

Droids Custom AT-AT Driver: Mostly inked!!

I got some inking time in Monday night. I'm really happy with how this is turning out. I decided to thin out my ink a bit, and that has allowed me to put down some nice, skinny lines. That's much more in-style to the original Droids card art.

The only thing I haven't inked is the 'splosions. I'm not super happy with how those look at the moment. I want to go for one giant BOOM, and right now it looks like smaller booms all over the place. So I figure I'll erase away all the pencils and start from scratch on a new blast.

My goal is to get this one done, plus one more done ahead of Celebration Chicago. And I'm on a good pace for that. Stay tuned!!

Droids Custom AT-AT Driver: It begins!!

I've officially begun my next Droids Custom figure. I'm starting a bit later than I'd hoped, but I had to wrap up a couple other art projects you might have the chance to check out in Chicago sometime next year before I could get to this. Monday evening I sat down and got to work on some pencils.

I gotta say, this matches the picture I had in my head pretty nicely. Very dynamic. For the AT-AT head, I took a photo of the bottom of my toy AT-AT. Now I just need to cartoonify it a bit with the final pencils before I start inking. Which hopefully I'll be able to show of in the next week or two. Stay tuned!!

Congrats and condolences

Since I was born, Sept 25th was always known for being my maternal grandmother's birthday. Then, once Star Wars came out, it was also recognized for being Mark Hamill's birthday. Grandma never saw Star Wars, nor had any interest to. When I would try to talk to her about it, explaining X-Wings and TIE Fighters, she would look at me incredulously and reply "typewriters???" Some people just don't get it.

Now I've come to find out that Sept 25th is also Donald Glover's (young Lando Calrissian in case some of you still haven't seen "Solo") birthday. So I just wanted to take this time to wish them both the happiest of birthdays with many more to come.

But on a sad note, Gary Kurtz, the producer of Episodes IV and V, passed away on Sept 23rd (my birthday). Checking IMDB, they state his death was cancer-related. We also lost Al Matthews on Sept. 22nd. Now he never visited the galaxy far, far away. But sci-fi fans know him as the cigar chomping, Hudson hating, Sergeant Apone from "Aliens". I have a photo from that film signed by almost all of the cast, the only ones I was missing were him, Crowe, Wierzbowski (both actors who played those parts are deceased as well), and Corporal Ferro, the dropship pilot. Yes, it was signed by Bill Paxton before his death. Apone was my favorite character from that movie. Both in the film as in life, he was taken way too soon. I wish both families peace and comfort at this difficult time. But again, their contributions to cinema will be remembered for all eternity. May they rest in peace.

Disney ripping off the past

So an interesting new thing has popped up in my eBay searches. Of course... it's C-3PO!

What we have here is a new Disney ceramic C-3PO "money box" (because apparently the term "bank" has too many negative connotations). Paging through eBay I can't say for sure ...

The 12 Days of a Non-Star Wars Christmas

With Solo coming out on DVD/Blu-Ray next week, it got me thinking as to what are Star Wars fans going to do this holiday season with no new film in the theaters to watch and re-watch over and over and over and... Here are some suggestions:

  1. Re-release Solo in the theaters and see how it does if it had been released when all the other new films had come out.
  2. Do a 10 movie marathon.
  3. Do an 11 movie marathon and include The Clone Wars animated film.
  4. Do a 13 movie marathon and include the two Ewok made for T.V. films.
  5. Do a 14 movie marathon and include the Star Wars holiday special.
  6. Boycott the holidays entirely and put aside the money you would have spent on all the movie tickets, swag, etc... to save for all the stuff you're just going to HAVE to buy from Regal Robot.
  7. Save up for Star Wars Celebration in April.
  8. Put yourself in a fruitcake-induced coma. Coming out only on Wednesdays to see what new tidbits of information CC.com has to offer.
  9. Write letters to Santa, stating: All l want for Christmas is Solo 2 to get the green light from Lucasfilm/Disney.
  10. Start planning your yearly vacation to attend the opening of Star Wars Land at either Disney Land or Disney World in 2019.
  11. Any combination of the above.
  12. Spend the time with friends and fam... Ahhhh, who does that anymore! Spend the time watching your fave Star Wars films in the comfort of your own home. It's winter for crying out loud! It's cold, dark, the roads are slippery, and no matter how good you are, Daisy Ridley will not be sitting under your tree come Christmas morning.

P.S. A big Happy Birthday to yours truly as this coming Sunday, the 23rd I'll be turning the big 5-0!

Setting the record straight

I've heard from multiple persons online that Solo lost money due to its budget being $500 million. I have checked numerous online sources and cannot find that figure anywhere. Below are some of the figures I found, and their sources:

  • Google – at least $250 million
  • Screenrant – over $250 million
  • Variety – ...
