Breaking In the Tauntaun

Prev Next

The Tauntauns, indigenous to Hoth, had to be broken in by a special group of wranglers before the Rebel Forces could use them as mounts. The breaking-in process was short but very fierce, managing it in deep snow was a task for the most skilled animal handlers in the fleet only.

I recommend to view this one large, decluttred or on black. It really gives a different [better] impression.

    Thank you ...Ashish.., Jonesilicious, inyufface and 1/6th shooter!

    Doctor Mobius: Thanks! There's a regular guy (or gal) behind every hero, or somewhere around. They deserve some exposure. I think.

    Very intense. I can feel the struggle. ... 144 frames! That's commitment.

    Mortaric: I'm lazy, it's easier to fire away and see what sticks rather than to actually plan the thing before shoot. :D

    Thanks TimCz!

    Ex: Did you notice this upload? It pretty much explains the technique.
