    Hello Everyone!.... After coming back from C7 excited as can be! I decided to attack what I think is one of the most difficult Helmet sculpts in the entire SW universe... The Kylo Ren... Except I barely know how to use a computer, so no 3D modeling here... In a nod to Old School practical effects, here's my beginning ...

    Very very impressive. Man, the more I see of this helmet, the more I love it. It's got a real Vader meets Mandalorian feel to it.

    That is simply incredible. Awesome work there! I get the feeling there is more going on with this helmet than might be readily obvious. The "porous" details on the cheek area is interesting and there does not seem to be a visor? The faceplate also looks like it might be removable?

    Thanks you everyone for the compliments!... Thanks for the great pic too!... This is truly a test of wills and skill. The more I sculpt the more subtle nuisances I see... And yes the more I work on it the more I believe the faceplate must move or come off in some way....I also believe there is a lot of detail on the actual helmet under the cloak. Which means I can't actually mold it until it is revealed

    Re: Kylo Ren Helmet Sculpt - (Old School WIP)

    Hey, great work again! I would also love a casting if possible. I thought I'd mention too, that top layer face plate definitely comes off in the movie. Too many similarities between the concept art, rumors & final production helmet. The cloak, Vader's Helmet & the Star Destroyer bridge/"padded room" (almost) are featured in these renderings. Plus, look how perfect this would fit with the final design. Plus, it would fit with the "broken" motif, provide a Vader like villain & play on the "more machine than man" meme of the state. (Joseph Campbell) His hand may still be robotic but I wouldn't doubt if they opted for less artificial hands. A little overkill haha.


    Potential spoiler, I guess?













    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Also I think the final Kylo does not have human eyes! Greet symbolism there, definitely a mystical possession theme.

    On the last concept photo, Kylos hand look like the one that's touching R2 in the trailer...but that's just me.

    Great work so far ;)

    The Kylo Ren reveal at C7 has taken The Force Awakens up another notch for me. I can't wait to see more progress with this.

    Wow fantastic work.

    Since I saw the first concept drawings I thought his helmet has the distincitve silhouette of the old german stahlhelms which is kinda cool.

    Re: Kylo Ren Helmet Sculpt - (Old School WIP)

    ... Now that I have the Helmet shape somewhat roughed in, your absolutely right. It definitely has a German stahlhelms feel... I also see a very subtle Japanesse Akiro Kurosawa samurai influence here as well... Then there's theobvious Vader feel and influence... As I continue to pour over photos and the conceptual helmet, I'm starting to wonder ... Hmmm... There's a lot of damage on this rig, could the helmet be peiced together from Vaders old charred Helmet and Armor? ... Just a thought, I'll have to wait til Dec. 18 to gladly find out.:rolleyes

    The material he wears is generally rougher than most of the Sith. His outer tunic is almost identical to a Crusader’s surcoat. His inner tunic is pretty much a Renaissance Doublet. His hood and shawl are close to an archer’s mantle. His lightsaber is a cross-guard reminiscent to medieval swords and he holds it like a European martial artist rather than Asian. Even the outer tunic fabric is similar to Monk’s Cloth.

    His entire shtick is European Knight to the standard Jedi Samurai.

The more I look the more I see... Lol! The more mistakes that is ... Oh well... "Almost there... Almost there... It's a hit!... No just impact it on the surface!"... Thank you all for your continued support!... And yes, I'm planning to do a run when I'm finished... But that is a little down the road yet... I think I'm going to take the weekend off folks... May the 4th be with you!

    Initially, I’d say black nylon stockings. It looks to be the go-to for masks of this nature. I have some good pictures of the material and will do some visual tests, but for now I’d say black nylons.
