my prop work from over the years

Postby grinchy » Sat Feb 21, 2015 7:39 pm

Heres a few props i've done over the years, first up is a 3p0 helmet i made, this one was made for a collector who wanted the beaten up prequel look, made from fibreglass and had light up eyes
Image
full vader suit on a mannequin, the armour was a bit big for this mannequin
Image
small scale yoda in carbonite

That Vader is amazing and I've just "stole" the picture of Yoda and set him as my background :D

Hope this non star wars stuff is ok to post, i sadly haven't done that much star wars, but i do have yoda on the cards for this year.
Next up is ET as a kid growing up when i saw this movie i identified so much with the kid Elliot, no father around divorced parents, i just loved the idea of something so alien yet so human, i drew this guy over so many times i felt like i could sculpt him in my sleep
heres a couple of pics of the clay sculpture, i took my time on this sculpt took me around ten days to sculpt
Image
Image
Image
this first ET i had to rush to finish, so i wasn't entirely happy with the paintjob
Image
the next one i took my time on, this is my favourite piece i've done
Image
Image
i plan to take my time on my next sculpt which should be yoda
