Never quit doing something you want to do, despite negative things people say about your work. I say you should have another go. It is a great feeling to complete a helmet or anything for that matter, because you know how much hard work went into it. So go 4 it

The helmet from the clone wars looks like the inclement weather helmet as worn by CDR Bacara. I saw a thread by EVO 3 who is making a phase 1 clone IWH which may be inspirational.
Re the previous helmet, it is hard to judge something that is far from finished, especially when it is an unknown quantity. What I would say is no prop maker made a perfect finished prop first time out, but they learned a lot in doing it.
Give it a shot.

I think it looks pretty cool

Skip is working on his Snow Clone here...
So I'm pretty sure you could pull it off too! It was a great start for sure

I, for one, believe that you learn more from failure than success. The only thing that really matters is: did you enjoy working on your helmet? Did you learn from your first try? Beyond that, who really cares what those who don't contribute anything think, comment, or do?
It looks like a nice bucket. Only you can say whether or not you are happy with it, and only you will know if you will be happy doing a second one.
I say: Do what you want, as long as you enjoy it. When you don't enjoy it any longer, go do something else.

Well said, I fully agree with Clonesix on this, its your project, your helmet, and I applaud anyone who makes something completely from scratch, I have tried it before and not been very successful but I know I WILL try it again

Try and try again, that´s how you end up making the best stuff. I too want to try molding and making my own stuff, and I know I´ll probably fail more than I succeed. But it´s a learning process.
You´re off to a great start and keep fine tuning your skills and learn as you go!

Definetely GO FOR IT! I agree with all of the well placed words here!

Do or Do not, there is no try
Just do it
