HARDCORE MODELING!: Ralph McQuarrie Tribute: Luke and his snowspeeder

Being a huge fan of Star Wars (of course), I choose Ralph Mcquarrie instead Moebius, even if Jean is a master too.

I choose the Luke diorama on Hoth. when his snowspeeder crash and the AT-AT walk on him.



I choose that illustration because:


  • I don't want to choose the popular illustration of Mcquarrie and be one of many artists to redo the same art.
  • I love snow scene in general. Great Lights!
  • I want to sculpt a character to improve my organic skills, but I want to do some great star wars vehicules to add to my portefolio (love the snowspeeder design)
I will try to recreate the diorama in that two months. But I will focus my time on Luke first, then the snowspeeder and at last, the At-At if I have time.

And ya, I plan to stop texturing before modeling all models

I already gather the reference pictures on my drive. I will post soon the batch pictures.

I decide to start the helmet. I realize that is a concept helmet. I tought at forst it will be the New hope x-wing version (because you don't generaly draw a concept when there a standard, Like C3PO was draw first but then his shape didn't change in the Mcquarrie concept illustration later)



Tomorrow, I will try to finish my base mesh.



  • I pass a little time today to check the suit and this is not a "onepiece" like the ANH x-wing suit or the fan replica.
  • Also add the boots and gloves if I have time.
