Ben Kenobi Desert Nomad 022 by TrevorGrove Ben Kenobi Desert Nomad 022 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 really are too good at this!! Lovely textures. Do you ever press texture into the wax or just sculpt it?

Thanks so much! The texture is almost always achieved by stamping. The robe on this one took so long to texture...Unfortunately it was quite heavy, so I ended up wearing a callous into my thumb while holding it week after week. ha! I suppose 'ol Kenobi here would have worn more than a few callouses into his feet roaming the deserts...so it was appropriate :)

Oh I see. That is very cool. Thanks for answering. I know little about sculpting, but as a painter I know about texture! ;)
The callous was definitely worth it for the outcome I'd bet!
