HCM #34- Masters Tribute: Jean Giraud "Moebius"- 5th Element Mangalore

Hi everyone! New to the forum and I'd really like to improve my sculpting skills so I thought I'd join in .
I liked 5th Element a lot and I thought the Mangalores were pretty cool so I chose them for my creature design entry. If time permits I'd also like to start a Star Wars creature collection...

But for now here some refs I'll be using .

Hi. Here some updates on my Mangalore sculpt. I decided to deviate just a little from the movie and mix in some design elements from the original concept art.

It works

Hi Jason,

seems your picture works. I had no trouble viewing them. And it's very nice sculpt you have there. One thing that concerns me, is that unfortunately Mangalorians wasn't designed by Moebius. They were my first pick as well, but after watching a documentary on fifth element concept design, I've found out, that there were a lot of people involved and this particular concept was done by someone else. The movie can be watched here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcEQzsO959Y
On the other hand you're pretty far with your sculpt and I believe we can assume that Moebius had some impact on the final version of the design. So happy sculpting

Hey Jakub

Thanks for pointing that out, I'm really not that familiar with Moebius or Mcquarrie. If those are the rules looks like I'll have to switch over to my other choice, which was a Star Wars creature collection.
But you're right I've come far with this sculpt so I'd like to finish it up first then add it to my portfolio.

Thanks again and good luck with your own entry .

The link didn't work the first time but did the second.

Good progress so far.
