  1. Sep 27, 2008, 4:39 PM - TFU: The Ultimate Evil or I have a Secret too #1

    Greetings, I have been keeping this project secret for over four months, with the notion I would not surface until it was complete. Now that The Force Unleashed has been released and this character has been revealed, I feel it might serve better to share my progress. It is actually a release for me just to share this much.


    I am proud to say this is NOT PEPAKURA.

    Not that there is anything wrong with Pepakura--the software that allows folk to print out the facets of 3-D models for easy assembly--it is just a different animal than sculpting by hand and from scratch.

    Be well,
    Thomas

    That's awesome! If I ever make up enough funds for another suit, it will definately be the Bounty Hunter Disguise for Starkiller from that game... wonderful work though!

    Outstanding job there! Really sweet!

    I understand what you're saying about Pepakura, it's a great tool but to be able to sculpt and shape something with your own hands like that is a real gift. Well done.

    Thomas strikes again!

    How did I not see this before now!

    Great as always. I've been keeping my eye out for the Imperial Knight figures but haven't seen them yet, I saw them on the back of another package and had almost forgotten about it and when I saw it I was like "hey there's Thomas!" lol

    Very nice work. Great lines. Only one question I suppose for you. Is this based on the game character? Because the smallest of the symmetrical cylinders in the game, is actually a recess and not an extrusion. at least on the other side of the head.

    At least in the screenshot I saw. I thought about making this, but I simply dont have the skills you have Not for a project of this size

    Very nice

    Good evening,

    I prefer to post when I have more images to share. For now I wanted to thank you, The Dented Helmet for your support. This suit has a great deal of detail to recreate before it will be presentable. I will happily share updates, whenever I make significant progress.

    Katua Fett--I am no cosplaya, no need to for anyone else to be a coshata. The helmet is cast in fibre glass. I would not recommend super sculpty for any large format props for several reasons. Chief amongst those would be lack of durability.

    Studio Fett Images of the character in game are not commonly available at this tyme. You can see the character in the "Darkside" ending cut scene on Youtube, but be warned--that might be a spoiler for you.

    Skupilkinson I appreciated your comment all the more when I understood the work you have been putting into your own Pepakura templates. I do not mean to demean Pepakura assisted prop making. It lends a great start to any 3-D video game based character. My supposition is that recreating the prop from scratch allows for "feeling" to be imposed in the piece. My gut feeling for the Ultimate Evil version of this character has been dread. Completing this costume will be the darkest I have ever traveled to reach a character.



    I worked on the masters for this character's claws this weekend. Then I switched gears and redressed my life casting for use with Darth Bane. I am trying to pull a presentable version of my dear Bane together in tyme for an upcoming event of personal significance. And as always, I am short on tyme.

    Be well,
    Thomas
