I have to say that I missed being here this summer. I had too much on my plate with a death in the family, work (TV Production), family vacation to California, amongst other things. I was also in a slump after all that and then Comic Con '06 and Hasbo's opening comments/slide show. BAM! i got hit with all kinds of e-mail and PM asking me about my Gargan. It was the motivation I needed to get back on the saddle and start sculpting again.
I have finished the Gargan wax sculpt and now making the mold for Hoover. I ran out of the RTV silicon and more is on order, until then I picked up the heads again and worked on those until the silicon arrives. As stated before, I want to show the Gargan and Hoover to Hasbro and see if they would produce it. Therefore, I will not be showing the final sculpt here just in case if they have problems with posting works in progress. If they turn down my offer, then I will post all the pictures of them then.
Now for today's update, I have a finished sculpt for you to see. During the summer, I got arround to getting some of the Clone Wars Graphic Novels and fell in love with them. I have one favorite that really stands out to me and I already started him before I went on vacation. I am talking about none other than Jedi Master K'Kruhk and here is the picture:
I really wanted to capture the feel and look of the comic version. I have seen other customs of him using the whipid action figure head and either Foul's torso or bits of some jedi and J'QUILLE the whipid. It just did not settle with me that would pass as Jedi Master K'Kruhk. In the comic, he wears jedi clothing ontop of his fur and his feet are wrapped in ninja like shoes. So I changed my head several times making the hair fuller and beard longer and added the pig tails down the face. I also wanted to open his eyes up some more like the comic version than the movie prop. Something in the eyes that were drawn brought life and character to Jedi Master. The only thing now is wether to stop here or go on and make the whole figure.
Well thats it for today. Let me know what you think and I welcom any inputs. Stay tunned for more heads this week since I accually finished quite a few the past month.
