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


#1

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.

   [left]I choose that illustration because:

[ul]
[li] I don’t want to choose the popular illustration of Mcquarrie and be one of many artists to redo the same art.[/li][li]I love snow scene in general. Great Lights![/li][li] 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)[/li][/ul]
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.

#10

I talk all night without really modeling… so I decide to share with you my rotoscopies blueprints of Luke in rebel flysuit.

#11

Here my first draw. I start modeling the basemesh of the Rebel suit


#12

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.

[li]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.[/li][li]Also add the boots and gloves if I have time.[/li][/ul]

Ahh, pass some time on redo some part of the suit mesh like I said. Making teh suit two pieces now + a belt.

I add the start of the gloves + the turtleneck.

#19

[ul]
[li]Finish the Medipak on the chest[/li][li]Add some bag on the belt[/li][li]Add the harness[/li][li]Maybe the lightsaber (even if we don’t see it on the main concept)[/li][li]And of course the head ;)[/li][/ul]
