Now Dok Ondar's has a lot of different items for sale that you can purchase, far too many to list them all here, and so I'm not going to go through each and every single item. I'm going to stick to the highlights, and according to me, there are 3.

I received my own Droids Custom Yak Face back from Matt Brookins last Friday. So I went ahead an took a couple glamour shots of it for my personal records.

We sold out of the entire run in just about 2 hours, which is amazing for my largest custom run ever. On top of that, we were paid for all of them almost immediately.

Thanks to everyone who supported this project, and a special thank you to Matt for proposing the idea and being a supportive partner throughout! I think we're gonna need to do something like this again sometime...



Droids Custom Lando Skiff: Inks!

by Bill Cable
on 2019-11-13, 06:51:11

I pulled out the ol' quill over the weekend, and got to work on inking my next custom. Before I started, I was not super happy with how the ink flowed on my Yak Face. Too many instances of it getting stuck on the nib and not doing anything. And it's been doing that for the last four or five customs. So I figured, the ink bottle is only about a quarter full. I'm gonna water down the crap out of it and see what happens. I probably added about a teaspoon full of water directly to the bottle.

And oh my God it was FANTASTIC! I was getting consistent, even inkflow for the first time since I probably switched to this ink. With no degradation in opacity. A total win. As a result, I crushed it!

Inks done! Now on to colors!



Off Topic: Deadpool and the MCU

Now for something completely out of left field... I had an idea pop into my head a few weeks back, and I just kinda rolled with it. Disney has a problem - how can they integrate Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool into the MCU proper. I submit for your approval, my solution:

Droids Custom Lando Skiff: More pencils!

by Bill Cable
on 2019-11-06, 08:00:03

My pencils are very nearly finished. The last big lift was drawing the woman Lando's flirting with. I dug deep into the lore for this one. It's Jess!

CreatureCantina.com Image

Interesting side note, this image of Jess is nearly always flipped when you search the web for it. If you Google "Jess Jabba" you'll see the wrong lekku is wrapped around Bib Fortuna's chest. I flipped the image so it's correct here.

I actually put a bunch of work into Jess before I was happy with the results. Here's my first crack at her:

CreatureCantina.com Image

After I finished and looked at the art the next day, I noticed her neck was WAY too long. And I was disappointed, because I really liked everything else. After weighing my options, I decided to redraw the torso, since I really, REALLY liked how her face turned out. It's always a challenge capturing that Droids cardback style with faces. And we're talking about a tiny enough adjustment that a slightly longer torso wouldn't look wrong.

CreatureCantina.com Image

After I sat that one down and looked at it, I realized her torso was too much front-facing. So I tweaked that a bit for my final revisions:

CreatureCantina.com Image

As for set dressings, you'll see I added the table at the foot of the stairs, and the strange wall cabinet next to Jess. That'll mostly get cut off in the final piece, but it's there in the set so I put it there.

Next week, hopefully I'll be able to share my inks!

So here we are, finally! We got to the park right when it opened and made a beeline for Batuu. Upon entering the area, I immediately started taking in the sights, the sounds, the smells, and all of this even before we even got to Black Spire Outpost! I figure ...

A Brand-New Beedo Top Ten List!

Going through my files for ideas, I realised it's been twenty years since I last published a new "Top Ten" List. And it made me feel old. Funnily enough, it also gave me an idea . . . .

TOP TEN SIGNS YOU'RE AN AGING GEEK
  1. You look at the price of toys and say "WHAT?! I remember when these were three bucks!"
  2. TransFormers are getting way too complicated.
  3. Your arthritis makes it harder to complete your customs.
  4. You've seen your favourite toyline make a comeback . . . twice.
  5. You wander into a store and forget which wave you were looking for.
  6. You remember characters such as "Funny-Lookin'-Face-Guy" or "The One In The Blue Swimsuit".
  7. You find yourself marvelling how far toy manufacturing has come since you were a kid.
  8. The kids you have to push out of the way to get the toys you want are looking younger and younger.
  9. Also, their mothers are starting to looking hotter.
  10. For old time's sake, you break out one of your favourite old fighting games that you used to dominate, and spend far more time in the Kontinue, Karacter Select, and Loading screens than you do in actual Kombat.
