    Well, here he is...

    After making Dr. Evazan, this was the logical choice for my next sculpt. This was the first casting out of the mold and I did the finish work myself. In the next couple weeks I'll be sending a master out to Erich from www.lubattidesigns.com who will be doing the finish work on any future castings.

    The hair's much more sparse in person... really looks dense in the pics. It's also a touch lighter in person as well (I sprayed some beige and gray overspray on it to knock the black down a touch.)

    I put Evazan in there so you could see just how big the Walrusman bust is. I also took a nice side by side shot with backlighting and a little film grain. Fun seeing the two of them together and in the lighting we're used to.


    As always, if anyone's interested, shoot me a PM or email for more info.

    Tom

    Thank you very much. I've actually made a conscious effort to speed up my sculpt time and try working with deadlines for myself on recent projects. So far, so good.


    Thank you as well to everyone else for all the kind words. Glad to see other people are diggin' ole' bum-face as much as I am.

    Of course, people probably think of the werewolf type hand used in the close up, but if you look carefully, he only ever had the big flipper hands on-set. The wolf hand was an insert shot later. (and could easily be replicated with some halloween monster hands)

    Thanks again guys!

    Smallville, tough to tell if you're making a joke or not (no offense, of course!), but the two guys are the goons that bully Luke in the cantina scene of Star Wars.

    I just showed the pics to my 6-year-old son and asked my boy if he knows who he is...

    He said, "He's from the first movie... In the city-desert (Tatooine/Mos Eisly)... In that dancing place... And is the one that doesn't like Luke. Why doesn't he like Luke?" ;)

    Fantastic work as always :) I can not wait to see what you have in store for us next. As a side note what will you start on once the cantina is complete? Maybe Jabba's palace :D

    Brilliant, and probably better than the originals.
    You must have nearly the whole cantina cast by now Tom.
    That scene really meant something to you, didn't it?

    It's hard to imagine how you might notch-up from here.
    Keep up the great work.
