Hello everyone,
Here is a little project that Tk-4261 and I have been working on for our daughters. We decided to make ewoks, rare to see them trooping at events unlike the jawas. My camera was MIA for awhile so this starts several stages into the build. I was going to sculpt an ewok face, but decided it would be easier to use found objects and modify. I will begin with the head and progress thru the rest. We used a halloween mask, felt cap from Michael's and foam knee pads to build the head. On my mask I applied oven bake clay, sculpted the nose and mouth, baked and then glued to mask.
here is a pic of the face with fur layed on top as a test

another angle

the ears are made with oven bake clay backed with craft foam and covered

I used wicket's features as a guideline for my face
That is it for today.......

Here are some different views and my daughter test fitting her ewok bucket
side view w/ ears, note the foam has not been shaped

test fit side view w/ shaped foam(cheeks)

here you get a good look at the felt hat from Michael's( the elephant )

front view test w/ shaped foam

right side test w/ shaped foam

test fit, note that those are her teeth. test fit complete everything lines up.
Notice the slight asymmetry w/ ears, the artist in me enjoys some wonkyness
like my tk bucket-it is also there w/ many ewoks

next time adding fur...

They grow up so fast don't they. It seems like just yesterday she was playing with her Barbies and now she has a full beard.

It kind of looks like the mouth opens on that... or am I crazy?

Thanks,:lol

LOL
The mask is looking great so far! I'm excited to see it finished.
Thank you, the wait will not be too long
me too. haven't seen a good ewok build in a while. Are you going to do Wicket as well?
I used Wicket as a guideline for this one, I do have plans to make a wicket at some point. Most of the ewoks I've seen are subpar(not meant as insult) or are recreations of the ewoks that are not seen up close on screen, like the ones traveling with SW in concert( I was dissapointed by those in the case ).
Wow, VERY impressive so far!
Thank you again for the praise! Nice to hear from those who have been around awhile.:)

Here we go with the fur. Those of us who are troopers are well aware of the multiple uses of E-6000, Very affordable at Wal-Mart and works well on a varity of mediums. All of the fur, Foam and ears were attached with it.
Using push pins to hold in place I began with the left side(threw in one lens)

side view

both sides

Brow, see the pins

Popped in lenses to get a peek

Gluing more hair

Front with glue setting w/ lenses

another angle,same side as above- note the pins. I broke the fur down into 8 0r 9 sections( not an expert at cutting material ) to make it easier to apply

coming up, completed fur.....

Now it is time for some shots of the completed heads.
Brushed the fur and added teeth, took shots w/ flash front and side angles




shots w/ out flash


Both heads fully furred

I will need to replace the hood, did not get a big enough piece and had to stich the sides, but it still looks good. Added flowers for a feminine look
Finished Head

next time hands and feet....
