I like the stache bro!
I might as well post it here cause its easier :/ call me lazy
I would like to have bucket off to (one with leather jacket is me)
your nose is a little small isn't is Squidward?
haha! I should find that rock again and carry it around with me for the rest of my life... then when someone trys to take a pic i whip it out (at the speed of sound) and hold it in front of my nose
put it on a leather necklace.
Ill see how that works
whoops sorry Kal, Man we all thread jack each other a lot
dont kill me for this... Hey Joe Jonas anyone...
WHAT THE POODOO?!?! where did that come from? that guy is so strange, and his brothers lol
lmao u guys crack me up... got ur mugs tho, good to go on that
Hey Kal, my pic the face is too oompa loompa orange, so not that orange, just well tanned and scared.
lol copy all Ad'ika, I'll start on this one soon... also, I have a GREAT idea for what to do with my SCUBA buy'ce... I'm going to turn it into an AIRBORNE buy'ce! lol similar to the parjai troopers from the 212th Assault Bat/2nd Airborne/Parjai Squad
Ok, sent ya a PM Kalio!
I was going to do a Bucket Off Pic, but since poor Alpha got picked on for his noes(which to me is small), there is NO WAY i'm going to post a pic of my face......
lmao okay Mer'ika, sounds good ner vod.
tonight's project is my jump version of my armor and... the designs for the MAF logo for Jango and myself, as well as I want to design some star warsy versions of the qualification badges that my mando would wear, i.e. jump wings (since I'm adding airborne to his skill set... thanks to Jason making a way too cool buy'ce for me to pass up) and controller wings
Here's the rough bucket Kal.
The expression is supposed to be like furrowed eyebrows.
The T is open about 1 inch up into the furrow.
I'll try to post another, but most of the suit is like my snow, just a cape, the saber claw's, the anterior calf sabers, the guard shoto on both arms, and LONG handle saber over the shoulder, the 2 crossdraw blasters, and 2 theigh blasters, and 2 standard sabers.
The second pic is HORRIBLE but you get the idea.
When I make this bucket, I plan on opening the area between the teeth and putting a mesh to hide behind, but it will provide lots of ventilation.

Ok I know I'm not really one to talk... but dang ner vod, I count 9 lightsabers and 4 blasters there... do u really expect to lose that many lightsabers? lol
For my Gaalaks features... He does get a scar on his right cheek (nothing to big )
I think it would be cool if you made him smirking, cause thats so much like my personality. Read the bio pacx did for me and you should get all the info u need. Not sure what you wanna do with my hair... do what you want there
And personally Mereel, my nose is pretty big thats just a good pic of me
Alright Kal, got your PM ner vod, and Bucket on for me in my please, in my current armour (not the TOR set). Thanks for doing this vod! I cant wait to see it!
Actually 11 sabers, the guard shoto are gonna be double bladed
However the calf, shoto and claws are permanently attached, so 8 non-movable, and the 2 standard and 1 long handle.
He likes to kill
His hair is white, I couldn't do it right in the chop job I did above, and shoulder length, the 'stache also white with black streaks
No problem A'd'ika! I love that armor set! lol... Ad'ika that's a lot of... fun...lol as for the mug data, I plan on trying to draw in a few faces, but IF I have too much trouble with it... it'll end up buy'ces on for everyone! lol
Here's a quick sketch for you guys. This is the jumper version of my armor... the kit that was worn during the clone wars so that I could accompany my specially trained pathfinder clones on their jumps. The Buy'ce is the one being built for me by Jas'ika and... the detailing of the blue fangs (on the buy'ce) and the blue slashes on the armor plating are being added to the overall armor.
Ok i thought that i might as well save you some time and post this here
heres the tropies Pacx wrote in my bio
"After his glory years, Galaak had collected a large amount of trophies, from wookie pelts, lighsabers and blasters, the scalps and armour pieces. One of his more prized weapons was an acquisition he had discovered in the ruins in the south hemisphere of Taris - A cortosis blade, fashioned by hand in pure cortosis weave. It became invalubale during his jedi hunting career, due to it's ability to short out lightsaber blades, leaving his victims defencless against blaster fire. It was said that Galaak had enough in small arms to take down a planet."
he he I ain't one for collecting trophies... just weapons... I mean, once I deal with 'em, they ain't gonna need 'em anymore, now are they? lol
why thank you Ord'ika! Not too flashy? lol
Not too bad. Hard to kill someone when you're 30 feet off the ground though, huh Kal?
not really... that's what the grenades and ranged weapons are for... but it's more for getting to the ground from higher altitude
HAHAHA grenades!!?! From 30ft up? Aren't you a battle technician vod!?!
Lev'ika remind me never to post my mug on this Forum, they might tease me for my nose
dude i think my nose will pawn all of yours it currently sticks out of the visor area!! (gonna have to find a way to fix that :s)
Hmm yeah yeah. Just watch your landings, you'd be surprised how many injuries can be caused by landing badly. I saw one kid with his ankles crushed from falling 20ft from a balcony. It's bad.
yeah sounds kinda rough... btw Pacx... can't wait for the finished story! I'm going to do some extra stuff (from the CW) for it and I plan on making it into my very first COMIC BOOK! lol
u guys crack me up... here's that recolor for y'all
Looks like Levi emailed you a larger file to work with
Anyone seen or heard from Nevu?

nope... I used the one of the joint gallery, just used Gimp to make it bigger, then touched it up a bit with my black pens
lol I had to touch up the details a bit due to blurring when I enlarged it but oh well. I think it turned out alright! Now on to the next project...lmao
Kal, that jump jet kit is awesome. You need to get building vod! I want to see these drawings come to life!!!
lol yeah I know... I'm going to start working a little more this weekend I hope... have to find layouts for the ODST shin/leg plates, and I need to figure out how to do my gaunts/thigh plates... on the plus side I have P for Plenty cardboard to work with right now! lol
hey lev'ika... would u be interested in turning this mass group sketch into a coop sketch?
sure, i could help what parts would i be doing?
hmm... not sure but I'll know later on tonight... I'll post it up here.
Nice job vod.
So seeing as I made a request in Levi's thread for a drawing of a mando I figured why not crack at it with you. It will help me get an initial design for what I can put into my mandalorian armor. You've seen many of my updates and progress pictures so hopefully you know what to do. Take your time vod..no need to rush and thanks a bunch!
yup no prob... I'll get started as soon as I can
ok vode... 2 down, 9 to go... thankfully lev'ika's goin' to help out by roughin' out 2 of the vode for me.
Take your time....I am in no rush when it comes to this sort of stuff. LOL!
'preciate it ad'ika, I'll get to it shortly tho... promise. Right now I'm just swamped with the mass sketch I already started. I really think I overtasked myself with this one so I'm having to outsource a bit of the work! lol
Eh...the perks of drawing in pencil then going over it with marker. LOL!
Hey Kal, right now im kinda stressing to! Ela and social projects due monday and wednesday... and they're big
Dont worry though, ill get those sketchs done. I dont have much done on the first one though yet :/ dont kill me!!
@CC: prexactly ner vod
@Lev'ika: no rush... still workin' on my part. I have 4 done now... (did 2 last night) lol still have a few more to go. Right now I have Kal, Fi, Lev'ika, Mer'ika sketched and inked. Starting A'd'ika nd Jas'ika tonight hopefully... I plan on getting a lot done this weekend on it... at the risk/sacrifice of not working on my armor. lol
Dont worry about it vod, over the weekend, your helmet will be having work done to it...I have some pics for ya btw...gotta upload em.
wayii! can't wait ner vod! altho unfortunately I have to... finance is givin' me the run around... speakin' of which I need to get off my lunch break and go back to finance to get this paperwork finished! lol
No problem vod! I still gotta talk to my buddy about casting these things...because you do NOT want my original...I built a hyperlight dome (less than a pound, yet I can stand on it) then proceeded to pack bondo to build all those ridges and such on the back (now it weighs a ton)...And I want em to be hollow, so we're gonna mold and cast em with urathane plastic...a bit more expensive then resin, but amazingly strong...so in the end it will be perfect!!! I'm stoked about this (as if you couldnt tell...)
lol yeah me 2... very excited ner vod... so the original is gonna be too heavy to wear then? As long as the recast is strong enough I'll be happy ner vod.
Dont worry vod...I'll make sure they meet standards... I'm trying to keep the original light...but we shall see...
And I have a question for you:
How exactly do you want this part to look? Does the top piece (circled part) stick out over the lower piece? of am just suffering from a 2D moment and totally not seeing it?
should be about the same, maybe a SLIGHT protrusion, barely even noticeable.
Alright...awesome!!! That makes my life so much easier... I was trying all these wierd angles and overlays and undercuts &cs and it was looking really strange...lol Now I can just make it all the same initally, then add a plate of sintra over it to give it a bit of protrusion...
Thanks ner vod!!!
sounds good to me ner vod
hey lev'ika what's ur status on the mass sketch outsourcing... I have 6 of mine done! well... ready to scan and photoshop anyways! lol
@ everyone: hey vode I need suggestions for backgrounds, right now I have no ideas. Anybody?
im really sorry kal, there hasnt been much progress... a few real world problems popped up and i dont have much time on my hands ill try my hardest to get them done though
he he it's ok, no rush ner vod. I'm strugglin' through some issues too, but... I did a lot last night so...lol Still need ideas for a background tho if anybody has one, I'd be happy to hear it.
Hmmm what are the stances? i could probably think of something off that
How many Mando's? A rockface is always good. Do a sort of sniper after sniper after sniper thing. Lots of ledges and crevices to stick them in. Even if they aren't snipers, it still gives you lots of good platforms for them to stand/sit/lay on.
well... right now I have 6 of 9-10 total mando'ade sketched already. Kal is sitting on an ammo crate, Fi is sitting on the ground, Ord'ika is sitting indian style and A'den, Lev'ika and Mereel are standing... Mereel angled in from the left, A'd'ika and Lev'ika from the right.
Hmm....put the others on a giant Jell-O mold? Nah.
You need yourself a vehicle. Something like Luke's landspeeder with a mounted gun where the tail engine was. That takes care of 3. If it winds up being 10, toss the last one in next to Mereel.
yeah I was thinking maybe a basiliisk in the background... maybe a hanger or a forward deployed camp or something... but I need something that nobody's going to really blend into
Oooooh. Good call on the Bes'uliik. With all your Mando's, I think a hangar might be a little hard to squeeze in. An FDC sounds good, though.
Okay here's a quick update: I have 7 vode finished: Kal, Fi, A'd'ika, Lev'ika, Ord'ika, Jang'ika and Mer'ika. I have 5 of them already fused and ready to color, I have 2 more waiting to be scanned. That leaves Ad'ika, Kad'ika (lil' saber), and Pac'ika. I plan on having this one done pretty soon, but I'm also trying to work on my own armor at the same time so...lol
Ill get adonians and Pacx's to you asap
Hey at least it is something to do in the long run. I am actually to busy to do any work in terms of my armor right now. School finals are really catching up to me. Lucky I only have three more things to do for school and then I am free to do what I want for the next month LOL! And that counts on my mando design and getting it set up with paint. LOL!
lol well I'm now waiting on Lev'ika! lol so CC I'll get to work on yours. Do you want me to use standard plates for your armor or make a design based on those other pics u posted up?
Standard mandalorian plates. That is what I made when I started on the card board of it all. LOL!
well now that everythings handed in and finished i get can those done for you Kal Still adonians dark jedi and Pacx right?
afirm... in fact those are the only 2 I still need... and since I'm workin' on a concept for CC... I may just add her in there too! lol BTW, can you do one of the 2 sitting down? Either on the ground or on an ammo crate... That way I can make it a bit more convenient for the next progression of the mass sketch.
Hey Kal are both mine gonna be in there? Snow and Dark? AKA The Twins of Death.
lol well... they can be... I think I'm going to add in my old crew too, this is the start of my mass mando sketch that I've been yappin' about doin' for a LOOONG time.
All will work out in the end.
ok vode... I promise I'm still working! lol just be patient this is a massive undertaking for me. I have 2 full squads that I'm working with and some of us (eh hem... Adonian) have multiple armor sets! lol (myself included). Speaking of which... check out my armor thread, I've made progress! Spent a few hours today and got the leg plates built, just need to finish 'em up now.
for give me for being crazy , I just love my armor... even if it aint done yet but I have bad news... I (and all my fellow employees) have lost hours since November so I have no $ to work on my armor. I wont finish anything until late January.
I really just wanna see what it can look like finished.
Kal... Opinion... you think a black jump suit will be ok with my snow suit if I put white camo spots and the wampa fur in stratigic areas? could you do a rough sketch (nothing special) so I can get an idea? I may be able to get a black jumpsuit cheap.
yes I think it'd look ok, yes I can do a rough... in fact I can take your original and recolor it! lol since it was white to begin with. Hey vode check out my armor WIP and let me know what you think about the shin/leg pieces that I made... I need some input.
Hey kal... I hope you're not gonna hate me for this but i didnt get a chance to work on them. I wish i could say that it would be finished for the weekend but sadly i cant
If you have a chance maybe you could do them :/ This whole weeks booked for me and next week is when we do the shopping.... and im still trying to finish painting the helmet for after christmas
Hope you can forgive me
he he no problem lev'ika... I'll see what I can do, I've packed a few extra on myself as well so I know the feeling... not to mention work's been busy
im sorry if its just adding another thing to your list but i just cant find the time, and i hate holding your sketch up
*** school is driving me nuts I miss so much of whats going on.
well you'll get a nice break soon bro
@Lev'ika: don't worry about it ner vod, not makin' it any more difficult... I've got a lot of ppl in it already! lol I just need to add a few more to it to be ready to color in the first cut! I have to finish up my squad, and then add in the few of y'all I still haven't gotten in there yet.
saw the shins, they look really cool.
Ok i read that wrong at first "oh no! Done saw the shins!! theyre to awesome!"
Than i thought about it and somewhat came to my sences (with me im never completely there )
