I had a lot of fun with the Star Wars character sculpts I’ve been working on, and I’m happy to share a few tips and tricks to help you out.
I started with a simple, simple, easy-to-build character.
As you can see, this is a simple but fun, and incredibly detailed figure of Princess Leia, who is in the process of growing up.
I decided to start with a fairly simple sculpt: I chose a relatively simple pose to start: Leia is seated in a chair with a small, blue-and-white Star Wars icon.
I did a couple of quick passes to get her looking the most out of the Star Destroyer’s windows.
The next step was to do some more work.
I began by adding a few lines of white detailing to Leia’s face and mouth.
I also added some more lines of her eyebrows to help make her look like she’s holding a blaster.
Then I added a few more details to her feet, which I thought were pretty cute.
Next up was her helmet.
I added some details to Leia to make her stand out.
The final piece of work was to make Leia look more like she was actually wearing her mask.
I wanted her to look like a Jedi.
I had some fun with this process, and ended up with this figure in just under a week.
You can see that it’s a little more complicated than it first seems, but it’s fun and easy to make.
