Hello all. This is the very first main stream character bust I have made. Most of the figures I make are obscure so this one was a bit of a challenge :) Hope you like the pics.

Awesome work as usual Richard. That first pic rocks. It must have took you forever to hair that bust.

Thanks for the kind words guy. (Esspecially you Wook because you ARE Chewie ) :) As for the hair I bought it from NFT, it was actually clearance fur which kept the price down. I ended up spraying it lightly with different color browns to make it more accurate. The fur is actual has a backing to it so it did not take that long to lay it down.

Excellent job spraying. The browns you chose really capture Chewie's OT coloring. :thumbsup

Thanks again guys for the kind words. By the way Billy I think a full size Chewbacca would be too cool. Hopefully I can convince the gentleman I am making the head for to go all out and have me make the full figure :)

Buckeye,

I have found taking pics of Chewbacca is very difficult. The hair is actually a lot lighter than the pics show, I may have to take some in outside lighting to show his true colors :)
