Ticked Off by DarthFar Ticked Off by DarthFar
[for some reason, the Fan Art --> TV & Movies category doesn't work...]

100 Pictures Challenge #74: Are You Challenging Me?

------------------------

So we know all about Star Wars. About the huge, menacing capital ships and the looming Death Star, about the frenetic dogfights and frantic chases, and how you can score a girl by being a scruffy smuggler who's forced to jump into a trash compactor after her.

But surely... life in Star Wars isn't all about blaster battles and flying through asteroid fields? What about the more mundane aspects of life, like... Leia keeping Luke and Han whimpering in the corridor of the Millennium Falcon while she does her hair in the refresher for two hours every morning? what does Palpatine eat for breakfast? (donuts and OJ?) what kind of skin disorders must stormtroopers suffer? ... And when you extrapolate... if Han and Chewie, being smugglers, are frequenters of 'wretched hives of scum and villainy', what are the odds that said places are teeming with parasites just waiting for their next fluffy, furry host? ;)

------------------------

Yes, I use and abuse characters. Even the major ones.

If I recall correctly, this stemmed from a conversation with someone over my Sandtrooper picture, and how there were no real life details in the movies... including "Han taking care of Chewie's persistent flea problem". So yeah, having said it, I had to draw it. :laughing:

And if you're wondering why the lineart is so squeaky clean for once - it's because I drew it with the line and polygon tools. With a mouse. (And painted with the mouse and my tablet, using the airbrush soft brush tool. Never thought I'd touch that again :laughing:). It was insane. I wound up with something like 598 line objects - and that was without the fiddly details. I've developed new respect for all you vector artists out there. Your patience is... unworldly.

Yes, I know that ticks and fleas belong to completely different orders. [chuckle] For the record, I don't think lime-green ticks *or* fleas exist in our galaxy.

Star Wars property of George Lucas.

Before I saw the Tick B Gone on the can, I thought Chewie was drinking beer in this picture.

LOL That is great. I know how Chewie feels. I just finished a 4 day camping trip with my two little cub scouts. The Camp we were at had an outbreak of ticks. When I wasn't spraying my kids with bug repellent I was pulling ticks off them. YUCK!

Poor Chewie. All that hair would make it hard to find the nasty bugs.

Great drawing!

DarthFar Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2007
Thanks!

The only thing that's more repulsive to remove than fleas and ticks are... leeches. :dohtwo: (or, in the SW universe, drochs are pretty gross too). I suppose that would be when Chewie gets all the 'fun' pulling 'em off Han...

Aw, man, fleas! Poor Chewie, poor Han.

I really love the detail you've gone into with the Chewie's fur, its awesome -I would've been too lazy to do all that.

:icondarthfar:
DarthFar Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2007
Thanks! LOL, I actually went overboard with Chewie's fur. :laughing: I'd managed to keep things relatively... simple up until that point. And then I tackled Chewie, and all hell broke loose.

Well, at least he is potty trained... or is he?

And it's a good thing Han's not using Leia's hair brush for de-fleaing Chewie. I guess she wouldn't be pleased.

Come to think of it, Lando probably never had this kind of problems with Lobot. But then again Lobot cannot rip off people's arms.

DarthFar Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2007
Potty tr... :rofl: I don't think my watchers could stand another bout of toilet humour!

Lando's only problem with Lobot is that the latter keeps cluttering up his system with downloaded porn. :no:

Thank you very much, FF. ^_^ ... Laundry??? That's where farmboy Luke does laundry for the first time and turns his tunic and Leia's dress a suspicious grey because he forgot to separate them from Han's clothes, right? (Coulda been worse. Coulda come out pink!).

I wonder if Bothan Bugger Off TM would work for Wookies? It's something Han should probably look into. ;)

:hungry: We know Palpy eats a chicken club for lunch, hold the cole slaw, and now we learn he has donuts and orange juice for breakfast. [You just had to use donuts didn't you?] But what about other things? What kind of jammies does he wear? Is he a boxer or brief man? Slippers or no? Does he suffer from chronic halitosis? See, now there are just too many questions.
