    In between trying to finish up the V2 run I have started to work on the V3. I have loved this design ever since I first saw it. To me it meshes the concept TK and Fett together.
    I only have about 2 hours + into it and basically just roughing out the basic shape now. I am using one of my V2 casts as a base as the size and dome on both are almost identical.

    If you haven't seen the one I'm talking about here is a pic.

    And here is where Im at basically a pile of bondo that sort of resembles the ref.pic.

    Dont worry V2 people this wont be finished or offered until all V2's are shipped.

    Like I said this is a slop some bondo on it while waiting for resin to cure project. I wont offer or dedicate to much time to this until all other helmet orders are satisfied.

    Just wanted to give sneak peek of what I'm working on.

    The nose area in the drawing looks pretty narrow.

    Yeah but the side view shows a wider bridge so I'm going middle of the road. Not to mention this is way early and tons of changes will be made.Plus as Im sure you know when sculpting with bondo its better to over build then start taking material away.
    The bridge of the nose as well as the upper mouth will be taken in a bit. The pic I posted of the artwork also to me looks distorted a bit like to high to narrow. Kinda like if you take a widescreen dvd and change it to full screen it makes everyone look tall and skinny.
    Plus I want to make this wearable so some changes will be needed to make this wearable unless you have a head shaped like a weasel then it may work. :)

    Don't worry, it wasn't that kind of comment. Just wanted to say that even in this really early stage it looks like it's going to be another one I have to buy! :thumbsup

    Great start. I'd make the jowls narrower and more parallel with the profile of the face. Also the nose bridge narrower

    The jowls look narrower, but you'd never get your head into the hole.

    The sculpt is not done I generally over build so I can take away material. and some maybe not but some compromises to the design may need to be made to make it wearable.

    Im going to try and wrap this project up in the next month. I like it because it looks like a crosss between the concept Fett and concept TK
