I don't do as many figures as I'd like to (probably because I'm not that good at them lol)
Anyway this is probably a cheap knockoff but I'm not prepared to pay $40+ for a practice piece. The figure was well cast and came with a Darth Vader helmet/head but it just felt wrong so I used the alternative head.
I still need to tidy up around the edges and sort her cropped hair out on one side, then it's on to the lightsaber which I'll be trying out the colour fading technique I've seen on various Warhammer sites.
I gave her purple/pink skin just for the hell of it, it's Sci-Fi/Fantasy so I can do what I want :P
The base is made from Fooesboy's old cabinet I plundered and the stonework is just air drying clay that I used my "cobblestone roller" on, I thing it did a good job of producing the stonework.





This last photo is shot with a flash and highlights the different tones I used on the black cape, it doesn't actually have this much contrast but the flash seems to highlight the contrasting tones.

Oh that looks good. The skin tone actually suits to be honest.
