This commission required me to pull out all the stops. Lately, I have been starting a lot of recent projects asking myself how in the hell will I pull this off. Dad is usually a great resource for ideas and coming up with a strategy. He made a few suggestions that were a great starting point.

We started off by using a McFarlane "Halo" Brute Minor action figure as a base figure to sculpt onto for this one. Dad had set aside one of these figures in our fodder to make a Grumgar from "The Force Awakens". Since the Ninth Sister was the same type of alien as Grumgar it was a great suggestion. Normally we try to use all Star Wars parts for our builds but due to the size of the character we had to get creative.

We found a few different kits that were available for the character but when we discussed using them with our client it was decided that utilizing self-made original parts was the best direction for this build making this one a 100% "Customs for the Kid" piece.

The Ninth Sister's head, helmet, shoulder pads and lightsabers were all designed by me in Blender and then printed here at home. I then molded some of those prints and made red-dyed, clear casts of her visor and lightsaber blades.

The details of her body, hands and feet were all hand-sculpted the traditional way using both ProCreate and Aves Fixit. I was really happy how the hand sculpted and 3-D designed elements blended so well together once she was completely assembled.

The soft goods kama was hand tailored then painted both red and black by hand.

All the Imperial symbols were hand painted as well. I strongly considered designing my own water slide decals but when I saw how difficult it is to print white decals, I just busted out my paint brush and did what needed to be done with detailed precision.

This project was great 3-D modeling practice for me. With every new sculpt I get more and more confident making a new part on my laptop. From hand and digital sculpting, soft goods fabrication and detailed paint application, utilizing all the many skills I have obtained over the years really brought this project to life. I was really happy with the final results!

This commission only took one base figure to create. We took a Clone Wars Pre Vizsla animated action figure then completely sanded and re-sculpted the body to make it look like Dengar in his Clone Wars appearances.

I sculpted the head in Blender and after I completed my design, I printed the head that I made on our 3D printer.

Unfortunately, our FEP was punctured during the print and we lost our LCD screen in the process. This unfortunate incident will restrict our ability to print again until we can make some repairs. We are definitely going to be using a screen protector moving forward. Lesson learned!

The backpack for Dengar was completely hand sculpted from scratch as was his removable face mask. His gun was made by modifying an IG-88 weapon accessory.

Another work of art. Fantastic job.
 
Love it! I enjoyed seeing a young Dengar in The Clone Wars and had always been disappointed that we never got this version of him for our collections.
 
That's a great Dengar, I'd forgotten how trim he was in the Clone Wars era. I really appreciate that you gave him an optional scarf to cover his mouth for display purposes.
 
Happy Easter to all who celebrate! The timing of this commission couldn't have been more serendipitous. Due to her bunny like features Lop made a fitting post for the holiday.

This was a 100% sculpted custom. The body was hand sculpted with Aves Fixit and ProCreate. The head was designed in Blender and completed in Zbrush before we printed the finished headsculpt on our Longer Orange 30 and painted the finished product.

Lop was introduced in Star Wars: Visions is an animated anthology television series created for the American streaming service Disney+. Produced by Lucasfilm, the series consists of original animated short films set in, or inspired by, the Star Wars universe, with each episode being a self-contained narrative produced by various studios. The first volume of nine anime short films were produced by seven Japanese animation studios: Kamikaze Douga, Studio Colorido, Geno Studio, Trigger, Kinema Citrus, Production I.G, and Science Saru, with Trigger and Science Saru producing two shorts each. The second volume expanded the series to animation studios around the world, featuring shorts from El Guiri (Spain), Cartoon Saloon (Ireland), Punkrobot (Chile), Aardman (United Kingdom), Studio Mir (South Korea), Studio La Cachette (France), 88 Pictures (India), D'art Shtajio (Japan) along with Lucasfilm (United States), and Triggerfish (South Africa/Ireland). The creators at each studio are given free rein to re-envision the ideas of Star Wars as they see fit, while receiving guidance from Lucasfilm's executive team. The first volume was released on September 22, 2021, while the second was released on May 4, 2023. Both volumes have received critical acclaim. Lop appeared in Season 1, Episode 8. "Lop and Ochō".

During the reign of the Empire, a rabbit-like alien slave named Lop escaped her captors on the planet Tau. She is discovered by the planet's clan leader Yasaburo and his daughter Ochō, who convinces her father to adopt Lop as his daughter. Seven years later, the Empire has occupied their planet and is exploiting its natural resources. Yasaburo wants to drive the Empire off their planet, while Ochō wants to cooperate with the Empire. Ochō enlists in the Imperial navy despite her father and Lop's protests. With Ochō gone, Yasaburo gives her the family treasure, an ancient lightsaber passed down through the generations. Ochō blinds her father Yasaburo in a duel, then the Force-sensitive Lop confronts Ochō and injures her. forcing her to flee. Lop then vows to bring Ochō back home.

We love the look of her clan's lightsaber. Our client only wanted the figure so we didn't get to make her lightsaber, but it sure is a beauty!
 
Neat. She was comically tiny in the show, so if she's to scale, I'm expecting her to be almost Jawa sized.
