As you might remember, Jesus, the Rebel leader, has found his brother Eduardo, an Imperial leader. Together with Han Solo, they're fleeing in an imperial shuttle (not a flying one ) inside the Imperial bunker.

I haven't thought about what Jesus and Eduardo will do, but I'll think of something. Part two of this one continues with Solo. I'll post it later this week, probably...

Some people have complained about the dark photos as well, and that they can't see anything. Well, maybe they should get better monitors then, because this is the way it's supposed to be down in the bunker :) When I look at the photos from before PS altering, they don't look interesting at all. So I'm glad I made them darker.
I wasn't planning on including the meeting room and the scene with Vader actually. It was just something I added to the story when I realized that the episode would be too long if I didn't cut it in half somewhere. And a good place to cut it was when Solo had knocked down the other guy and tasted some Coke. Then I had to add something to that part. So I set up the stormies, and just added some walls.
I'm not sponsored by Coca Cola, but I thought of contacting them to ask if it'd be OK to include the Coke machine. I guess they're not watching this anyway, because if they did, I'm sure they'd find some way to press charges and sue me...
I'm trying to say that it's a bad thing to drink Coke, and that it makes you feel the need for it as soon as you've tried it once. It's like a drug.
In "the real life" I see many people being anti-Americans while still drinking the American Empire's drink. I think it's kind of silly that they complain about the capitalistic ideas and things like that during the day, and then go to McDonald's in the evening...
I love Coke (that's why I had some at home and could pour it over the Lego), and I'm not against America in particular. But I felt like including some more puns on Bush, because that's one of the most popular things to talk about these days. And everybody wants to be popular, don't they? ;-)

Actually, the X:D-thing was close to not making it. But I didn't know what I should let him say when he was about to jump, so I gave it a try with this. Hopefully, it worked. I borrowed some from The Fugitive and Indiana Jones as well, in case you didn't notice. And modified a line from Blade Runner (the "What are you doing here - I'm working"-section), but it might have been far-fetched. Anyway, Harrison Ford is in all those movies as well. That's why he's getting the feelings of déjà-vu...
The AT-AT is cooler in this light, yes. It's so pale out there in the desert, and when I shot The Big Walker the light was very bad in here because it was sunny outside. It might be better if I shoot the scenes with the AT-AT in November, when it's dark around here. I'll see what I can do. If you've got any ideas about how to make explosions in Photoshop, feel free to let me know. I fear the moment when I'll have to include them. I've managed to walk around them before, but I guess I can't always do that. And we all want to see explosions, don't we? *devil*

Can't wait to see what happens next.

I guess I shouldn't tell you how the episode ends, if you haven't seen it.
The caterpillar tank the commander is talking about in this newest episode is the one seen in this episode: http://www.pbase.com.../image/29749927
I just though it'd be a good idea to look at these, so that you'll know what to expect. I haven't got a clue about what's going to happen next, actually. But I'll think of something. I guess I'll have to steal some more sand from the sand box in the backyard... or maybe just bring the AT-AT and the caterpillar tank down there and start shooting...

I know that some of you have asked how I did certain scenes, and hopefully you'll get some answers here. It's all very simple actually, so start bluffing with Photoshop! ;)
Posted 23 September 2004 - 09:57 PM
but okay... then once again... ;)
i'm really impressed how you use all those baseplates in your stages / mocs!!! they fit in very well and this studs-everywhere look is just fantastic!!
and its really nice to see how the sets "really" look... ;) the imagination puts endless corridors to the not visible parts of the comic images, but the reality (tat means your behind the scenes pictues show): there isn't much behind!!! funny!!!!
please show us more of behind-the-scenes images if you have some!!!
Posted 25 September 2004 - 05:34 PM
I also like how you used the baseplates to make the walls and scenery.
I remember when you first started them at FBTB, you said that you made all your MOCs out of an ISD you took apart. Do you still use that to make them?

Maybe you'll find some of these Photoshop tutorials useful?

Here are the retouched versions. I must say I like the first one of these best. And maybe I used a little bit too much fire in the elevator scene - concrete doesn't burn... But then again, Lego minifigures don't bleed. They melt :)
Posted 01 October 2004 - 07:14 PM
:$ I thought at first when you sent me this that it was a new comic, but I see its just some edited work. My mistake! Nice stuff though, and I can't wait to see the next one. :)
