Holiday Special WIP
« on: Mar 07, 2016, 03:02 AM »
hello, becouse of health issues, i left this project incomplete by the moment, someday i will be finished will all the glory of the Fett.

well, i always like Boba Fett first appereance on the Holiday special cartoon, when i see guys in kit across the internet i always see just fett parts but painted as similar colors of the cartoon, the most some guys do is to eliminate the diamond piece in the center of the chest.

first task was search for reference images, every frame in the cartoon are different draw and style of the helmet, is not just a classic boba movie accurate. for the most similar reference is the CW-Death Watch helmets, as those are cartoon based for the series, and that helmet already exist. something i donīt like at all. so i decided to do a Boba Fett, but the most cartoon accurate, but in perfect mix to be real and wearable kit with unique parts and helmet.

so this is what Iīve made so far. Is just my interpretation of the kit.

Chest plate, as supposed to be independent plates, i made a complete plate, īcos i donīt like to se fett with misligned plates. in the cartoon, seems to be all togheter.



Boots and gauntlets



For the gaunts i have one part so far :/




Boots are made of e.v.a. foam, i planned to be covered with fabric to get the look. fits me well, fells great at walk and seems to be pretty much as the cartoon.




Now the most (I think) controversial: The helmet. as i tell you, every frame is different, and this is only my version. i still wanna know if this helmet and parts can be considered, if i want apply as canon boba holiday special to continue and finish the kit.



Another reference i use a little is a Gentle Giant statuette


My version.





for the back of the helmet are only one shot as reference, for the earcap too!






I need advice so i can continue or not, but most of all, i always appreciate your comments.
cheers

I can't give you any sure advice on how to proceed with this, but man, this is cool. There's been several Holiday Special builds I've seen in the past, and they all are done is a more realistic "movie" style. Never seen one like this that goes for the cartoon look, so I give your major respect for that.

The boot idea is pretty ingenious, how well does that hold up to walking around?

Nice work on that helmet sculpt, that is some dedication. Look like you've matched it pretty well to the reference images. If it was me, I might have made the face a little more angular. Can't wait to see what comes of this!
