Had a lot of fun with this one although it was a piece I hadn't intended to make. I still have many customs planned and so I picked up an AOTC Padme to use for a Theed Battle custom. When I got it, I decided to repaint the face as a "test run" to make sure I could get a good likeness out of it. Part way through the custom, I decided to just go all the way and "complete" the bust by adding arms.
I didn't alter the sculpt of the original bust at all, but just added arms to match. I decided to take advantage of the pose the bust was in and make it appear as if Padme is running through the Droid Factory, looking up at all the machinery. I then repainted it entirely and tried to have the colors more accurately match the film.
