OMG OMG.

...Sorry, I'm getting ahead of myself.

This was the other picture that went to Motor City Comic Con 2010. :D 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 :iconwraithten:, who got it signed for me at the convention. :D

Boba Fett is the property of Lucas Arts. Duh.

BRILLIANT ARTWORK!  If only I could draw half as good as your artwork!

Hi! I am the responsible for the official star wars fan club in Portugal and I wonder if is it possible to you sign this  image with a dedication gone to me?
Can be a digital one.I love your works!

Nice :D Beautifully done! I hated how in the Star Wars dvds they dubbed in Temuera Morrison's voice over Bulloch's. Lame :(

Thanks! And eugh, yeah, they should've left ESB alone. Boba Fett sounded perfectly fine the way he was.

That is so cool! It looks great - brilliant likeness, and the colours and details are spot-on. I love it.

And wow, you got it signed! That's epically awesome! :D

I met Mr Bolloch a few years ago at Trek Expo in Tulsa. He was very nice and answered all my questions. I still kick myself for not getting autograph that day instead of "another" actor. He took a great photo with me. Great Art I bet he was honored to receive it.

"...and it's not a picture to be proud of..." How dare you not being proud of it? :threaten:

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.

This is such a gorgeous picture. Love the concept. I missed my chance to meet him last year cause my dad didn't get paid until the day AFTER fanExpo ended...

Rush job or not, it's still a picture to be proud of!
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!:clap:

Ohmahgawd, 6-6.5 hours. Tis be to envy, Farsky! You motivate me. Q___Q XD

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.

Fi, that was 6-6.5 hours of solid hell. :rofl: Seriously, I'd sooner spend 10 hours of leisurely painting, than 6.5 of "never getting off my arse". But thanks!

First, nice work! Even though it was rushed it seems like you put a lot into it. Good detail, excellent expression, great background.

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! :D I know, I know, not much coming from a lesbian. :giggle:

Thanks, Dale! Back when I worked in the lab, I used to viciously label everything that was mine with this warning: "TOUCH AND DIE!!!" ;)

And yes, Tory's very pretty, isn't she? I need to find some way of sneaking more pics of her online. ;)
