Mini-Paint: Boba Fett

Boba Fett

This time around it's everyone's favorite Bounty Hunter, Boba Fett.  Sure, he was cool right up until he was essentially killed by Mr. Magoo (in this case, played by mostly blind Han Solo) in "Return of the Jedi".

I think I'll be doing the rest of the Bounty Hunters featured in "The Empire Strikes Back".

The palette was: Titanium White, Naples Yellow (Red Lt.), Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber, Cadmium Red Deep, Cobalt Blue (Hue), and Ivory Black.

This was done in about 2 hours.

STEP ONE:  Here are the relatively quick pencils on 5-1/2" x 8" toned, gessoed hardboard.

STEP TWO:  Here is the first pass of acrylic paints after a half-hour with a #10 flat brush.  Once again, I decided to forego the green paint from the tube and accepted the challenge to mix my own from the limited palette.

STEP THREE:  Continuing to work on tightening up the painting over the next 45 minutes, using a #10 flat brush and #10 round brush.  Mostly, it is building up the more of the shadows and light source.

STEP FOUR:  The last 45 minutes was spent adding more details, all the chipped paint on the armor, and getting everything finished up with the final highlights and shadows.

This was done with acrylic paint on 5.5" x 8" gessoed hardboard.
