One of the coolest commissions I've done. I loved this one. A friend wanted this for his wife. Her favorite scene in Star Wars is where Chewie is petting Han in Jabba's prison. We came up with the idea of Chewie giving a disgruntled Han a big bear hug from behind1.jpgIMG_0285.JPG19.JPGI wanted a really STar Warsy looking base. I wanted it curved to maybe imply it was part of the Millenium Falcon . This is made mostly of styrene sheets with some tube , wire, and cast resin parts. Rods on Chewie's feet go in holes in the base( not shown in these photos)14.jpg26.JPG18.JPG22.JPG25.JPG29.JPG28.JPG30.JPG
Chewbacca's hair was done with toilet paper that had been shredded up, soaked and mixed with elmer's glue and cornstarch. Reaallll technical. As always, the initial hair tests turned out better than the final. Han's hands are aluminum and then worked up with miliput.
