Droids Custom AT-AT Driver: All Systems GO!

I've wrapped up all the prep work on the AT-AT Driver. Coloring's done. Front and back are proofed and ready. And I gotta say I'm pretty happy with the results. Here's the proof from when I positioned the art on the Droids template:

It framed up nicely! For the bubble background, I decided to go with classic Vintage AT-AT Driver yellow.

The other big change I made from first proof to final was to adjust the saturation levels of the character. He was kind of melting into the background on the first proof. On the second you can see how he really pops.

The back is done, complete with an AT-AT Driver photo and bio!

And the other thing I did was primed and painted the coins:

I'm hoping to assemble the customs over the weekend, which means I should be ready to sell them next week! Stay tuned for an announcement Monday!



Droids Custom AT-AT Driver: Mostly colored!!

So my work on the AT-At Driver Droids Custom has been a bit slow-going. I was hoping to have the colors all done by now, but I've been too busy to work on it as much as I'd hoped. The base colors are mostly done. Check them out:

I still need to do the first shadows and highlights on the main walls of the cockpit. After that's done, then it'll be on to finer details and the various washes I apply to make the thing look more in the Droids cardback style. I might have it done by next week... we shall see!



So about those Droids Custom art auctions on eBay...

by Bill Cable

Last week I posted a story announcing auctions for three of my original art pieces from my Droids customs. Good news! They all sold.

Interesting news! They all sold to the same person.

In fact, that patron was the only person to bid on two of them. And it's a guy I know who's a long-time fan of my customs and owns quite a few of them. So when he made an offer to purchase all of the rest of my original drawings, I agreed. So if you were hoping to bid on any of the other pieces - well, you won't have that chance. I'm happy to see them all go to someone who genuinely appreciates them.

DRYGATE BEARFACE LAGER

I’ve had a few beverages from the Drygate Brewing Company of Glasgow, all of which I’ve liked, but I could only find an action figure partner for one other of their products: Disco Forklift Truck. Yeah. The weird names they give their beers make it kind of ...

ROSIE’S PIG FLAT TYRE

This cloudy sparkling cider made with rhubarb and bestowed with a clunky name comes from the Weston’s Cider Press in Herefordshire. Rosie’s Pig is actually the nickname given to one of the company’s first stubborn old delivery trucks, and is a sub-line of their products, of which ...

BLACK CAT / MASTERPIECE RAVAGE

Some time ago, around Hallowe’en, I bought some Moorhouse’s Black Cat so I could photograph it with Takara/Tomy’s Masterpiece Ravage:

CreatureCantina.com Image

And I never got around to writing a review about it. Time passed, and I completely forgot about it. No, seriously! I don’t remember a thing about it, not even taking that picture! I must’ve drunk it, because the photo is dated 2013, and apart from the very special Fuller’s brews that I’m saving, beer didn’t last too long after I bought it back then. It was neither memorably horrible enough for me to instantly rush to trash it, nor was it so amazing that I went back to get buttloads more and write a glowing, praise-filled review. So it must’ve been at least acceptable. Maybe. I dunno. Enh.

If a beer goes down my gullet, and I don’t write about it, did it happen? Not a clue. The beer is an unknown. Until I open another bottle and drink it, it is both good and bad at the same time. Now I have introduced quantum uncertainty to beer reviews. I think I need another beer . . . .

Drink this if you also like: I couldn’t say. I can’t remember what it was like.



Here's your chance: OWN some Droids Custom original art!!

So I couple weeks back I asked the opinion of our readers, should I hoard all my original art from my Droids Customs, or should I share it with the world? The overwhelming consensus was that I should indeed sell it so that others might appreciate it.

When asked how ...
