...Sorry, I'm getting ahead of myself.
This was the other picture that went to Motor City Comic Con 2010. At the Last Possible Minute, I decided that, come hell or high water, I was going to make something for Jeremy Bulloch if it killed me (one copy to give him, and one for him to sign), because I'd heard about how nice he was and remained connected with his Boba Fett fanbase, and how he himself was a big collector of all things Boba Fett. So I did this on Friday night and
OMG LOOK: [PIC 1] [PIC 2] [PIC 3]
(I'm utterly pathetic. Sorry...).
Force, I can't remember the last time I painted this fast *or* furiously: it was done in about six to six and a half hours, but I spent Every Goddamn Second of it painting like there was no tomorrow. (Except for the breaks I took to throw WIPs at Tory). I finished it at about half past three in the morning, by which time my arm was about to come off at the elbow. It's such a ghastly rush job, I'll confess, and it's not a picture to be proud of - and yet, I *am* terribly happy that Bulloch signed it, just the same.
My profound gratitude to , who got it signed for me at the convention.
Caran d'Ache Vandyck brown pencil + Corel PhotoPaint.
Boba Fett is the property of Lucas Arts. Duh.
BRILLIANT ARTWORK! If only I could draw half as good as your artwork!
And wow, you got it signed! That's epically awesome!
This is one of the most awesome renditions of Jeremy Bulloch (I knew immediately who he is - I had such a crush on Boba Fett in my teens) I have ever seen.
You are proud of this picture this instant young men or I'll be saving all my money and have Boba Fett hunt you down. I bet he's expensive but it'd be worth it.
I think this works more than well just like it is. Great, simple composition, and that grungy looking background goes so well with his time-worn armor and the character... everything just works!
Thanks very much! and good to see you around again.
Really awesome work!
Gotta love the way the cape is blending into the BG and the level of details on the face. Doesn't look like a rush job to me at all. Srsly.
*continues munching on your brains*
You will NOT eat my brains! begone, ye zombie!
Second, LOVE the watermark on the signed copy! Remind me to put something similar on my own deviations.
Third, to Tory, assuming that's the lovely woman in the photo, you're pretty hot! I know, I know, not much coming from a lesbian.
And yes, Tory's very pretty, isn't she? I need to find some way of sneaking more pics of her online.
Yeah Jeremy is awesome ! he does stay connected and he also is the biggest Boba fan himself !! so anything boba he WANTS. Im sure he absolutely loved this. very very awesome
Someday... I'll meet him in person. Hopefully.
