Bloody hell mate you have got some serious prop making skills!
That Vader is amazing and I've just "stole" the picture of Yoda and set him as my background :D
Can see quite a few members contacting you with work requests in the future

Hope this non star wars stuff is ok to post, i sadly haven't done that much star wars, but i do have yoda on the cards for this year.
Next up is ET as a kid growing up when i saw this movie i identified so much with the kid Elliot, no father around divorced parents, i just loved the idea of something so alien yet so human, i drew this guy over so many times i felt like i could sculpt him in my sleep
heres a couple of pics of the clay sculpture, i took my time on this sculpt took me around ten days to sculpt
