Geekery and starch

From right to left: The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook, X-Wing Rogue Squadron: Blood and Honour, and Legends of the Ferengi.

Didn’t quite capture the texture of a TIE fighter wing panel, which is what I was hoping for, but that’s pretty hard to do in clay anyways. The leafy business on the Pathfinder rulebook is inspired by the marginal illustrations on every page in it, and the other cup is going to be glazed to resemble one of those Ferengi head thingies. (I love this project. It’s a lot of work and it’s taking forever to wrap up, but it lets me do things like watch Star Trek for art research purposes.)

Aaaaand because I was curious and impatient, I pulled up one of the potato plants in the backyard. Lo and behold, there were potatoes!

      TIE fighters are the wee one-on-one combat ships the Empire uses in Star Wars. The comic I have is part of a two-volume storyline in which an ace Imperial pilot defects to the Rebel side, and I wanted something a little more to do with him than the X-Wing fighters the Rebels use. (Technically, I just noticed, he flies a TIE Interceptor, not a TIE fighter, but the panels look like they have the same texture, so I’m not too worried about my geek cred evaporating on show opening day.)
