Jabba that never was!

A while ago I decided to sculpt my own Jabba the Hutt. I think I mainly wanted to sculpt something from scratch, in real physical clay. Creatures are a lot more forgiving than humans to sculpt, I find.

I sculpted it and started to painted it but I never finished it. I have a lot of projects like that. Kinda sad because the paint was coming out really nice! I even started working on the base. Then I got lazy and just decided to buy the updated Hasbro figure and be done with it. Ha Ha...lame!

So now that the 6" Black Series was announced, I thought about going back and re-sculpting Jabba at a larger scale to fit the 6" figure scale. The cool part would be to make an articulated Salacious Crumb figure!!!

...Ugh, I feel a change is I going to get back into Star Wars now?
They are trying really hard to pull me back in!

Anyway, here are pictures of the sculpt and some work in progress pictures...
