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.

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.

Lucas has been consistently crapping on my childhood for the past five years...
Way to give JB credit where it's due :D

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.
