Project completed for the “As You Wish Helmet Project” to benefit the Make-a-Wish foundation. More information can be found here: www.facebook.com/asyouwishproj
This project provides artists with a raw “blank” casting of a helmet from the Star Wars series and allows them to alter it to their creative desires. As I’ve been playing a lot of Skyrim lately, I wanted to do an aged helmet adorned with horns and badly corroded over the years. My end goal was to make a piece that looks as though it has just been unearthed with all the scars and damage as they happened years ago.
