To people who don't know who is zam it's the assassin hired by jango fett in the ep2 to kill padme

here's a shot

wow moooa, another model in the works ... very exciting.

using THIS IMAGE (http://www.gateway.net.au/~equinox/episodeii/characters/18.jpg) as reference, i have some preliminary comments.

- her cheeks look too round and puffy
- the tip of her nose should probably point up a bit more
- her lips look like she's about to give someone a kiss
- her chin/jawline could probably be a little more 'square' if that makes sense
- her hat looks to be a little flatter (doesn't come up as high as you show it)

overall it is a very nice model of her head. people would definitely know who she is without making these changes, but i just thought i'd point out some basic stuff.

keep up the great work, moooa!
:D

This is great news! I love Zam Wesell!
Think you moooa! :D :D :D

Taking into account how accurate your Mon Calamari model is, I'm sure Zam will turn out nothing short of excellent.

looks cool so far... any chance you'd make a veil up version? and perhaps a clawdite version? :D ooh, ohh... and maybe even a helmetless version (you know, with her blond, unkempt hair)? :D

yeah t3rr0r ... good call with the veiled and clawdite versions.

and knowing how moooa has a few different mon calamari variations, i'd be surprised if he didn't do just that. glad somebody mentioned it.

care to share a pic of her sans helmet? i gotta see the spikey hair.
:D

i'm trying to find it. :/ it may have been a sw.com image attack picture... not sure... i'll check there.

edit: found it. i guess it's not so much spikey as it is unkempt... helmetless zam looks cool nonetheless. it's a good frontal face reference, too.

It looks good. I would like to have the veiled version more so you could make both.

For the veilup and clawdite version sur i will do it :)
But for the version without helmet maybe if i have time i think it won't take me too much time to add it

oh wow, i completely forgot! my hard drive went a little crazy about 1 1/2 months ago, i lost EVERYTHING i had on it, and i unfortuntely had to get a replacement one from dell. since then i have learned to religiously back up my important data ... too little too late if you ask me.

i would love to finish the skin for your mon cal ... if you still want it. can you possibly send me the file again to THIS ADDRESS (adillon@jkroller.com)? that would be great, moooa!

------------------

zam's updated face is looking much better. all i can see that bothers me a bit is the distance between her eyes. a good rule is that there is one eye width between them. it looks like hers are too far to the outside of her head. push them in and i think you'll be there!

great work, though. and the pics of the figure should help out immensely.

Nice model :)
Look foward to the finished version.
Having the clawdite version would be cool too ;)
Here's some pictures I could find:
Picture 1 (http://www.granavenida.com/imperialtroopers/personajes/imagenes/wesell-zam.jpg)
Picture 2 (http://www.starwarsfan.org/prequels/editorials/sotg%208%20pics/zam%20wesell%20running.jpg)
Picture 3 (http://www.granavenida.com/imperialtroopers/personajes/imagenes/wesell-zam.jpg)
Picture 4 (http://starwars.gamigo.de/multimedia/wallpaper/4/photos/stockerer200204068.jpg)
Picture 5 (http://www.episode-x.com/episode2/characters/img/zam.jpg)

If you need some more pictures, I could try and nab some of the EPII DVD ;)


Carry on with the good work! ;)

From looking at reference pics, it looks to me like her helmet covers more of her forehead. Just thought I'd offer that up. It's your model.
