Now I have finished the Master bucket I will be making a couple to keep as master copies for further projects. I will be slowly improving on my initial design but first I will be working on an idea I've had for a while.
I enjoy making buckets, that I have found out, I have always had the intention of making limited run art pieces based on the Mandalorian helmet and this one is probably my coolest design.
I've been learning Japanese for a while now, I'm kind of at kindergarten level with it, but I am strongly influenced by the culture and I thought what would be cool is to make a bucket with a Japanese dragon on it.
"But" I thought, "it's not very starwars!".
So I looked in my little dictionary and found the Krayt Dragon, looked on the net, found a few visual references and came up with the following design.
I used the mando maker to help me get the base look of the helmet, so props to that tool.
I also did a 3-d representation of what it would look like in pen:
I will be making only 10 of these art pieces and I will collect names on a first come first serve basis when I run out of room in my house and I am forced to sell them.
I like the idea of only 10 people in the world having the design
Once I get my new resin in I will cast me off a helmet and begin the design.
