View Full Version : Rykrof Enloe Series Photonovel Previews

The Rykrof Enloe series was started over a year ago, and has slowly progressed into a saga that I love making and hearing what everyone's thoughts are. I think it's come a long way from the early days of throwing a few figures together w/ very amateur sets, effects, etc - but stil has room to improve. There are 17 stories in the series so far, and the 18th one is in progress and should be up in time for Christmas. Here is a link to the original ones - RYKROF ENLOE PHOTONOVEL SERIES (http://www.thecustomalliance.com/cook/default.asp)

For now, here are a couple previews, including the teaser poster for the next photonovel in the series -

I think it is safe to say that this one will be by far the darkest chapter yet in the Rykrof Enloe series, hopefully the best visuals, and a solid storyline I hope. This one will be loaded with custom dioramas made specifically for the photonovel, with some digital work, but mostly the real thing.

Oh, and when did Rykrof change his name to Enloer?
Why do so many people type so poorly?

Hell, I can't type at all, I can't even spell my main character's name anymore. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

I hope to have this one finished soon... by the weekend maybe, but not sure yet.

About this next chapter - it will be dark, in the sense of the storyline. Dathomir was pretty dark, but this one will be more evil in terms of cruel intentions and the planned actions of others. On Dathomir there was of course the setup by Palpatine to have Rykrof's fleet ambushed, and there was the evil witch, Siriadne.

Here there will be a more controlled, calculating presence against Rykrof. It will have an impact on the series, in a different sense than Dathomir, which essentially was about Rykrof surviving against the odds and about him not only discovering important information about the Badoo Corba, but him meeting Freelo as well as the friendship of Kala Mly Shundi coming to find him.

This one will be about something Rykrof is totally unprepared to deal with. Will it be death of a friend? Betrayal? Something totally different? The title says a lot, but in a few days most questions should be answered, but then of course there will be new questions and an all new situation to deal with.

CHEWIE

Freelo... poor Freelo. He's kind of the C3PO of the series I think. I never said Freelo would die though, but time will tell. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I won't reveal what will ultimately happen to him just yet, but there will be deaths of characters throughout the series.

There will always be 1-2 characters to continue things, but even Rykrof will meet his end at some point, and the idea of another character taking over the series could happen. Remember Boracca died a while back on Naboo in #6 - Assassins of Evil, and people were surprised he was killed off.

Trigg Fuuda got fried by Palpatine too - and he was my favorite character at the time. So anyone can die! There is only one main character I believe that will not die by the end of the series, and it won't be Rykrof that lives.

You never know. Chewie may have showed us that pic to throw us off guard and instead of Freelo getting it poor Ralbar does. Very shocking though how you plan to kill off Rykrof. I'm guessing the title is gonna change or are you gonna just end it when that does happen?

CHEWIE
12-20-2005, 08:25 PM
Well, it's a very long series - when Rykrof does die, it may a long ways off - he does have a son that could carry the torch. There is also the possibility that he could die and his son could be raised by Tylin Gere... and turn into a backstabber. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

If/when he does die, the series probably will not end - his son will definitely survive and it could be turned into the Trendon Enloe Series.

Well I'm behind on the series now. My computer at home is working at a snail's pace - just saving one resized picture freezes up the computer for anywhere from 5-30 minutes! Plus I have a couple of customs that I need to complete. I'll still try to have the series up by Sunday for Christmas.

And here's one more preview.

Thanks Dersan - I have a lot of work to do to get these where I'll be satisfied with them, but hopefully someday I can get better at them.

Unknown, when the next photonovel is up, more will be shown about Freelo. And the second guy is a Badoo Corba terrorist - I'm trying to get this next story done, but it's taking forever, plus with Christmas I've been really busy.

Can't wait to see that in fill Chewie, looks great. How do you get your lightsaber effects?

CHEWIE
01-07-2006, 03:12 PM
Thanks guys. I've gone through hell on the Vos figure, I reworked the hair a lot and made it plastic instead of soft goods in an attempt to make it look better. Don't know if it does or not.

Anyways, on the lightsaber effects, I don't have photoshop, I have a program called photoimpact - it's not as highly touted as photoshop, but it's pretty decent for what I try and do at least.

With photoimpact, I can create a linear shape and adjust the color - I just make a straight line and adjust the color. Then I add on a second shape with the same proportions, just thinner and shorter and make it a white color, and put it right on top of the original lightsaber color. So that makes a two-tone lightsaber effect. Same with the blaster fire.

I hope that explanation made sense.

this one looks like a whole new character.
Good job.

CHEWIE
01-17-2006, 11:36 AM
Thanks Flacksguy, I like this custom a lot and am happy with how it turned out. I had some feedback via emails and PMs about how Mubaas appeared in the last story, and some people thought I should give him more of a unique appearance in the future. Ideas like that along with a lot of script ideas from other customizers have given me some ideas that never crossed my mind. They are giving me a lot more options to explore, and I appreciate the ideas very much.

CHEWIE
01-17-2006, 12:30 PM
Thanks Phoenix, and I appreciate people like yourself still following this series. It's been a long series now with nearly 20 chapters over a long timeline, and using fan fic characters rather than the established ones can be difficult, but I think it's a lot more fun this way (at least for me) because we already know what happens to the main characters like Anakin and Obi Wan. What happens to these characters is still undecided. Anything can happen and anyone can die. As for when the next update will be, within two weeks probably. It's hard to say because they are very time consuming, and with working and personal stuff, it's hard. Plus I try to make specific dioramas and customs for each chapter, and that takes a lot of time too. But I'm on it! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I love the new Mubaas! Definitely appeals to me more than version 1, and a lot creepier (brings me back to Siriadne).

Guys, I am very sorry for the delay. I have been up to my eyeballs in projects at work and getting home late, and haven't even customized too much lately.

This next photonovel will probably be a very long one, nearly 100 panels. I don't want to rush it... it could have been up by now, but not to the level I want it to be in terms of quality. But very soon it will be ready.

As for Order 66... that's still a bit of a ways off. Will Rykrof be around for it? Which side would he be on? If by chance he bites the dust by then, another main character will carry the torch; which is possible.

Now that I got a few recent customs done, I got that out of my system and can start working on the main environment for the next photonovel, making a modular foamcore diorama like was used for the previous three stories.

But I do have a preview for an upcoming story, using one of the mini rigs I repainted yesterday.
