I've made these off and on for years, but just recently started up again. I'll be offering free PDFs at 2ddoodles.wordpress.com (there's already one posted), and would appreciate any feedback. I also just started a Facebook page.
There's some awesome work on here, and I'm having a great time browsing!
I hope you don't run into any copyright trouble. I guess selling them as limited edition works of art could help. I think you should look into more dynamic poses.
Thanks for the feedback! I'm not really all that worried about copyright trouble... I've studied it a bit and these seem to fall under the transformative art and parody sections. And after sitting for a few hours this evening cutting them out, I'm not sure that I'll be releasing very many Artist Editions, if any. The time spent is hard to justify for all that I could sell them for. That said, if Lucasfilm sends me a cease and desist letter, I'll cease and desist.
As for the poses, I've always been inspired by the vintage action figures, which is probably showing through a little. I designed this series with the idea in mind that these figures could be anywhere, anytime, hence the removable weapons on some of them. Kind of like 'all purpose' poses. But I'll see what I can do in the future! Thanks!

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
