Ben Kenobi Desert Nomad 021 by TrevorGrove Ben Kenobi Desert Nomad 021 by TrevorGrove
Part of the Star Wars Mythos line of statues from Sideshow Collectibles [link]

This 1:5 scale statue was sculpted nearly two nears ago, now. Designed by Joe Allard and Tom Gilliland, this piece is meant to represent Obi-Wan in the years before "A New Hope", but after "Revenge of the Sith". This gave us an opportunity to imagine the life of Kenobi as he became the reclusive, mystical figure of Tatooine.

It also allowed us to have fun imagining both Ewan McGregor and Alec Guinness as the character, but at different ages than we have seen them in the films.

The statue was sculpted in castiline and wax, with a sculpey base. Some of the lightsabers were sculpted by hand, and Tusken Raider weapons were output from digial models (which is why they look clear).

Many more photos can be found in my gallery

You do such AMAZING work! If I start babbling about faces, poses, textures, 360-degree views that are stunning from every angle, I'm NEVER gonna get to sleep, so I guess I better just say "Wow!"

It never ceases to amaze me how you can make something appear to be so lifelike with wax or sculpey. And the attention to detail on the way the ropes and weapons were sculpted to make it seem like it was just haphazardly tied on. The way the hair falls and tousles so naturally. Its just mind-blowing! Thank you so much for sharing these works with us!

Thank you so much! I'm really happy that the right feeling was communicated to you through the haphazard arrangement of things and the windswept motion.
Wax is a powerful medium for stuff like this. The control it allows you is just unmatched.
many thanks,
Trev
