I finished building Captain Phasma and I think she looks amazing. The chrome is so shiny I had trouble taking a good picture without getting tons of weird reflections.

It’s been about half a year now since I started my Daily Creative Thing project. I wanted to take a minute to reflect on it here, because it has been such a pleasure and a surprise.

Do one creative thing a day, and stay positive.
