    Just finished this up for a client. It's a Phil Robinson sculpt. Custom acrylic eyes by tech optics. Ignore the robe, just a temporary one for pics. This will be going on a full mannequin.

    I like the fleece hood. Way more comfy than that scratchy waffle stuff.

    But seriously.
    Nice paint on a tricky piece. Sponge painted?

    It looks great and along with the recent Snoke sculpt is pushing me to get into this as well-have wanted to for a long time but have not taken the leap-thanks!

    This is one of the best Palpatine busts I've ever seen, most people sculpt his features too exaggerated, this is perfect. My compliments.
