Here is another technique study with the inks and charcoal on gessoed board. This time the victim is Boba Fett, yeah, it's Boba Fett. I know what you're thinking, "Dude, I saw Empire and Jedi and Boba Fett's get up is green." Two words: Holiday Special. I like how some of this came out. In retrospect I don't think I would have used the charcoal to render in the dark areas on the fabric, gloves or the wrist guard. Those areas look real muddy and after the art was shrunk down a lot of the textures from the charcoal and gesso got lost. Originally I was going to paint him up in his classic getup, but I thought I'd do something different.

Disney hopelessly made a new Mandalorian looking character ''Captain Phasma'' to replace the Fetts and awake their legacy, but it will be a fail, Bobba Fett will stay the greatest Jedi-hunter of all time!

I haven't seen many people use this color scheme for Fett. Good work.

I think my intestines just ripped themselves out and ran away at the words "Holiday Spec-UGH!!!" There goes my liver.... The art itself looks great though!

Anybody gives you shit about the colors, tell em it's canon, and to come talk to me, I'll set em straight. Good work here, you really portrayed the fett well. :)

WOW!! that's cool,, and very unique.. i still say the reason why his get-up is so different in the Holiday Special is because his dry-cleaners was caught in a Crayola Factory explosion.. :)

With his kind of job, Fett needs to be all scratched up no matter what armour he has. :D

Awesome!. :heart:

Looks almost exactly like the tattoo I am getting done on my calf.

Are you going to post pics of your tat when it's finished?

Posted some pics of the Tattoo.. They're pretty weak, but you should get a good idea of what it looks like.
