I took it off for the bucket of pic.  i do not have much of a neck and it makes my head look all smushy.  it was on for the armored pics though.  Just thought it looked off when the bucket was off.

If you could find that out. That would make my day.  I found on his site his "official star wars galaxy 4 topps cards". Since that was lfl work to turn into trade'n cards, that may help me. And it was a bucket shot that may have gave me one of the impotant refs, the LMO needed.

Thanks for the help

Got an email Back from Karen Traviss today.  Here is just a small part 

"The pics are great - that's absolutely spot on for Skirata. Fantastic!"

She has been getting updates from the day I started this costume.  And has been a very good help.

The artwork shows a girth belt, which would be a pretty easy addition. I would adjust so that the knees don't overlap the skins but otherwise, it looks good.

Fixed up the knees after the pics were taken.

As for the girth belt.  For Merc membership I need any combo of 2 belts.  I have one with a holster and then my Ammo belt.

as for 501st membership (if costume can even get approved)  that last pic with the girth belt may not be LFL comished art. if thats the case then the girth belt would not be needed.  ;D

I don't believe that art of Jamie's was commisioned by LFL, I could be wrong though.

here's jaime's artwork. trying to deermine if it was for lfl... he does ALOT of works for them:


I am officially with LFL, but that image however is not. That piece was just for me and practice, also for my porfolio.
The coloring and design of Kal, I just went with by description and also by what little images I could find on the net
Tom Hodges did an image of Kal, but it was for a private commission. Again, not officially for LFL. So there really is no
"proper" drawing or photo of Kal that I know of. Just based off fans interpretations. Hope that helps. :)
