WIP Yarna D'al Gargan (Updated: 17-MAR-06)
« on: March 17, 2006, 10:29 AM »
Here is my WIP Yarna D'al Gargan (27-FEB-06). This is not a copy of the vintage hard copy. This Yarna D'al Gargan is completely sculpted by me. The body has already been sculpted and a mold was made. I casted the body in resine so I could sculpt the skirt. I filled in the area with clay to give a foundation for the skirt, just like the Kenner hard copy (found at ToysRGus.com as well as Bantha5) The head was sculpted on the body seperatly sitting on the ball joint neck. The figure is ment to be more like a saga sculpt than a Kenner sculpt. The head was molded and casted in resien and snaped on top of a half body. From here, the headress is sculpted on. I like to thank Ryan (Bantha5) for the great refrence photos and for the insperation and advise. I still have a lot of work left.



Here are two pictues of Yarna D'al Gargan progress (06-MAR-06). I also thrown in the clay master of the body that I sculpted. The clay master did not survive the demolding proccess. I lost a lot of the face detail comming out of the mold. But at least you can see what the body looks like.




I made some more progress with the Gargan (17-MAR-06). Here is a picture of the progress of the headdress. I decided not to do a Kenner style, I wanted to do a more movie acurate piece. I still have work to do on the back of the head. Let me know what you think. The best part about sculpting in clay is that if you do not like it, you can change it.

Thanks you.

This is looking very stellar, just as your Mawhonic.  This is one figure I really wish Hasbro would make.  I really can't give suggestions in sculpting, so instead I'll sit back and admire this piece of art, and continue to praise your hard work!

And if you would like, you can open a thread and combine all of your customs in it, which is usually how we present our work here. 

Looking forward to seeing more of your great work and thanks for sharing it with us.
