Mad Bodgin’ Mage Log: I’ll make a Jedi out of you

The cogs for this bodge started turning after I drew this:
May 4th 2016

I had put the Sith and Grey Jedi together previously

The Final Fantasy Mages / Jedi Order comparison was too tempting to pass up.

So when it came to the White Mage/Jedi the original plan was to use this:
61LPI+oWJ5L._SL1456_

Because I wouldn’t need to paint the white robes and I was pretty sure I could modify the hands to hold a saber.

Unfortunately I could only buy her as part of this bundle:
71KDEr8v2CL._SL1500_
I kinda balked at the price cause I wasn’t 100% sure this idea would work.

So I started looking for (cheaper) alternatives. Eventually I decided on Mulan
9350009_sd

to be the White Mage and having Kanan giving up his saber:

61fL82zBnCL._SL1417_

With the parts gathered, it was time for both these two

to join the ranks of Anakin and Luke.

Before I went any further with the sword arm I worked on the hood of the mage robe. Mulan was perfect for this part. Her hair with some minor cutting and application of greenstuff makes for a very good hood.

Very important to not try to do too much at once with the greenstuff, sometimes waiting for parts to cure is the way to go.

It was also at this point I found a much better option for a sword arm among the mangled leftover parts of previous projects:

Sabine wasn’t gunna miss it anyway.

Some minor wetsanding here and there to smooth it out and then it was more greenstuff to make a sleeve and shoulder…thing.

With that done it was time for the part I was dreading: painting it white. But here we go:

Next up was to add the White Mage’s red triangles, to make the process easier I drew them on first to get some consistent spacing before painting:

And with the addition of the red and some touch-ups we’re ready to give her her Saber:

And call it done (360 view). She’s saved an Empire, now to save a galaxy.

And that completes the 3 orders of the force.
