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


Three days off. get ready to Zbrush start.

I think I will concentrate on a model on stand and not diorama… I will add the snowspeeder if I have time. If not, to back but I will get the most of Luke first


Just finish the chest area.

Love the head.Looks great.


Really nice and tidy work on the clothes so far. The head is looking very good, I can clearly recognise Luke already!


really? thanks! lol I try but too many time with the same model I had to take a break to relook on him today and see if he still look like.

But from you, it’s a cool comment. Thanks


Good start, the likeness is definitely there. I don’t know if you need it but I created these 2 ref images for a past challenge.


Ah cool! thanks. I have enough ref of luke. But 2 more are welcome lol


AH ah! Finally done all the props. I’m ready to switch in ZBrush.

Try to pose. Never use transpose before… ahah it’s a bit tricky lol


That is starting to look realy good.


This is going really well! Keep it up! :slight_smile:


Thanks guys, Do you have critiques?


Well now that I compared it to the original drawing, the neck does seem very long. Also, the position is a lot more crouched in the original. The rest is just detailing - cloth wrinkles and such.


Cool thanks. I tought the neck was long, but in the T pose it’s look fine. So I tought maybe it was the posing and the angle in the concept the problem… but Hey I don’t critique Ralph! lol

And has my diffence for the pose… It’s was my first try to pose him… he will be more crouched next time :wink:

thanks for the critiques Twi


Few updates to come. I was packing for my new home. So I will restart my wip soon.

Maybe finish the head. Don’t look very luke for me.


Ahah you hope to see more? But i didn’t have time to work on this.

Maybe i will try some hours more but I never tought I would be so lazzy lol

Stay tunes
