HMC 9: STAR WARS TRIBUTE: Han Shoots First

i am going to try and right the wrongs that lucas forced upon us with the special edition. han will always shoot first. i'm not sure if i will create the moment of han killing greedo, or something slightly before that. i need to capture some video and decide. here are a couple of images that i found inspirational.

Yeah, I know what you mean. A totally stupid edit that should never have been made...its a bit like editing Roy Batty to piss on Deckard at the end of Blade Runner...

But yes, that was perhaps the one scene(from the original cut) that I would remember the most from A New Hope. I still think it was the best scene in the whole movie.

But I shall stop babbling and wish you the best of luck.

It's a good subject. When i first cut school to go to the movie in '77, the catina was by far the most interesting. I never really understood why Lucas thought it would be more fitting to redo that part. Personally, I feel it should have been left alone to han's scoundrel ways..oh well. As for your scene...good luck with it....also you'll find a couple of shots of Han's costume in the ref section, that I posted.

thanks for the encouragement. i realized there is no point in working on the body if i don't nail the likeness. here is the start on han's head. it is a couple hours worth of work in mudbox. there is still alot to do to make it look like him.

Goodness me, that looks like a very young Harrison Ford. A really good head model.
