That's very cool.  I really like the domes on the eyes.  How is visibility?

The visibility is about average for a tusken. I managed to somehow get a relatively clear lens out of my attempt, and what with all the holes in the faceplate, it gives good sideways vision

I also made a bag. It has a PVC structure inside to hold the right shape, but its really light and holds a lot.

The original leather is on the left, after coloring on the right

I've made a neck seal. Still unsure on it.

Without..

I'd go with. In the McQuarrie drawing with the Krayt dragon, it looks like the head wraps goes down over the back of the neck. I think the neck seal fits the bill.

Love MQ, great work on this build.

 

My 2 cents

 

Love the accessories, the harness you made and pouch are fantastic and will be useful.

 

Weathering looks great. Anxious to see the breather. Also agree it could be bare or covered. Why not start uncovered and then add the cover,to see the difference.

 

I also first thought the mouth was a bit wide. Some shots show it not as wide so that made my head settle down. Ha.

 

But yeah the bubble lens and shortened featured are pretty cool.

 

As far as hands. I like the wraps leaving the fingers exposed, but always thought the tuskens were so sensitive to light that they lived in caves underground and covered up as much as possible. Also envisioned them to be very alien like with crazy skin or something. IDK that's going out there.. but I guess if you weather up your fingertips it would work well.

 

I'm still also keen on robes instaed of pants for the Tusken. But again , why not have both.

 

The jewels have me concerned , any Jawa in the near vicinity will be hot on your trail...be aware. Be advised...hahaha

 

 

Great work man. Looking forward to seeing it finished.

Jawas don't want dragon jewels. Unless you can transistorise them for untraceable radio links.

Thanks for the feedback and encouragement everyone. My motivation seems to have fallen down and can't get up..

With regards to

the breather: theres covered and uncovered versions. given I've specifically modelled a particular painting, I think I'll go at first at least with what he has, which is uncovered.

the hands: the light shunning story of the tuskens being true, these are concept tuskens so i guess anything could apply really. I can only go on what I see. I like having the fingers exposed, it very different to what we're all used to, same with the pants and top.

As far as the jewels, and the smelly little Jawa's.. let them come. 

Please keep up the feedback, it's valued

I'm thinking i might combine the neck seal and the balaclava somehow. Neither of them quite fits the bill the way it is at the moment

Thanks !!

My aim now is to look into getting a CRL set up. The issue will be with the amount of available information.

Anyhow, I've been looking into the neck seal situation and I'm thinking this might be the go...

I've turned the neck seal around and tucked the ends in through the neck. It keeps the definition of the neck but still gives you the look of a neck seal. 

I haven't taken the wadding out of the neck seal, i wanted to see what it looked like.  I think some needs to come out at the front, it looks like it causes a bulge to form. I couldn't see that when I was taking the picture. 

Thoughts ??

I'm beginning to think the inside of the pleats and the back of the mouth needs some serous weathering. It looks far too new and defined
