Title: custom Ahsoka Tano quarter scale statue
Post by: bombarta on May 01, 2016, 09:27:44 AM
Hi guys

So in between building sabers i have started on a custom quarter scale Ahsoka Tano statue in readiness for my SH saber set when they arrive and because no manufacturer has produced a quarter scale version of her yet.

(https://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi1138.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fn525%2Fgazyang%2FAhsoka%2520Tano%2520custom%2520statue%2Fb0f0b058d034351497da5bed9b7a0684.jpg&hash=70fb2c1c4e9e49995af8f9aa5a97ed56) (http://s1138.photobucket.com/user/gazyang/media/Ahsoka%20Tano%20custom%20statue/b0f0b058d034351497da5bed9b7a0684.jpg.html)

Image from The Clone Wars Dream.

My version is going to be based on a version from one episode of the clone wars.

So the base started out as a Sideshow Suckerpunch Babydoll premium format statue.

Which i stripped of all her mixed media clothing  ( these are now spares for my exclusive version Babydoll ).

The body will now have sculpted clothing, and because of this I had to fill in all the ribs and skin dips and her spine groove that would not be seen when clothes are worn.
All the white areas on the statue are areas I have filled and have started sanding and shaping.
I have filled the gap in between her breasts and enlarged them too as this statue is based on the version of her that Ahsoka dreams about in the cave vision from The clone wars, which as young girls do, fantasise about how they will look when they are grown up, in this case she is taller and has larger breasts.

The head is currently only being built up with leftover epoxi as i work on the body.

That's gonna be interesting...  :smiley:
I'm not sure though, if this is the right place to post this...
But I'm looking forward to see her finished. What will you make of the Viking helmet, she's standin on?
Makes me want to push some epoxy again, too. I used to make 28mm miniatures - why not a Star Wars themed one... (In this thread there's a mini of a female elf warrior I made, in case you're interested Sample of Derro Kuspin's artwork (not SW related) (http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?topic=48319.0))

Done some more work, most of the sculpting on the body, arms and legs, just the belt left to do now.
Cut the horns off the samurai helmet and it's totally hollow inside, so expanding foam will be used there to fill the void.

Just a quick update, the head is starting to take shape and it's starting to look more like Ahsoka.

Made a start on the lightsabers today and drilled and ground the katakana handle out of her hand.
The sabers are made using aluminium tubes, I did the work using a dremmel and a pillar drill to remove the old handle.
Obviously the sabers are not finished and need pommels and greeblies and tidying up all the edges but, it's a start.

Hi myc, thanks. I've been too busy building sabers for a while.
Her head needs some finishing still, body is ready for first priming. I can't figure out what I'm doing with the base at the moment though. I wasn't planning to do cast's not actually looked into how that's done, any info for doing that?

I've Been watching your work progress too. I voted for Bane on FB.

Hi Bombarda,

ah thats a shame.. but I understand.. all this takes so much time.. I know.. its just she looks so promising!!

Well if you go into molding and casting.. its a whole new ball game. YOu will need to cut her in pieces to avoid casting issues. Then you have to make keys so you can stick those pieces later back together.. its a lot of work.

There is a ton of info out there.. youtube videos..etc.. its just not that easy and took me many fail attempts etc...   check this out: Sculpture & Art Casting Tutorials by Smooth-On, Inc. (https://www.smooth-on.com/howto/sculpture-art-casting/)

Thanks for following btw ! Bane would be great do make ! But as of now looks like the OT Gamorrean Guard is a strong front runner...
