Ben Kenobi Desert Nomad 033 by TrevorGrove Ben Kenobi Desert Nomad 033 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

Thanks!
They range in size...almost all of them fairly small...
This was 1:5 scale, but a lot of the work I do is 1:6 or 1:4.
Thanks again!

Very cool! I like to hear about a family of artist!

Sculpture is a great help to drawing...all that difficult foreshortening and what have you. I still wish I was a better illustrator, as much as I enjoy sculpting.

Thanks again!

Thanks! Yes indeed, we were able to sculpt both actors for this one...which was such a cool challenge. I think they're both great, so it's nice not to have to omit one in favor of the other.
