    Taun taun taxidermy complete!/ Kit now ready pics page 2

    Here's what I've been working on lately. Been thinking of making this into a total walk around costume, but I think I'll start by making it a wall mount taxidermy style from the neck up. About 3 days into the sculpt, taking some liberties on the design. Let me know what you think and if you think I'm getting too far off. Started with a block of styro foam and added clay over it.

    For some reason seeing it mounted next to a deer head would be hilarious!

    Don't forget to add a Nexu on the trophy wall.

    I so love this idea!!! Imagine the face of your family members when you tell them you went to Hoth to hunt a Taun-taun. Priceless!!!

    When can I have one!!

    Re: Taun taun 1:1 scale head WIP

    I was wondering wot to do with it!! mounted on a plaque would be hilarious!!

    alternatively - I have already suggested that a head in the bed to any potential recasters ala Mafia style would be another fine use

    you're quite mad you know

    lol

    looks awesome! goodluck if you make this a troopable piece someday. i'd tell you to look up a name of a guy who worked on labyrinth for these types of rigs, but i can't recall the name



    lots of cool stuff you could do as far as mounting and functionality

    Absolutely stunning. As with everything we do here, we need :

    1. Time
    2. Patience
    3. Skill

    I can make the first one, I already have the second, the third ..... DangerRuss took it all !!!

    You should look into Van ****'s Taxidermy to get supplies like eyes and whiskers, and what not. I'd love to see the final mount of this!
