Mini-Paint: IG-88


Rounding the corner into the home stretch for the Bounty Hunters from "The Empire Strikes Back", here's one of my favorites, the assassin droid IG-88.  Sure, he just stands there the entire time and really doesn't do anything, but I always thought he was cool.

And, thanks to "Robot Chicken", I will never be able to not think about IG-88 daydreaming about doing a slam dunk (if you will forgive the double negative).  It got a delighted smirk out of me when they showed it .

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

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

STEP TWO:  This is the first pass with acrylic paint using a #10 Flat and #10 Round brush, taking about an hour.

STEP THREE:  The next 90 minutes were spent working on working on developing the shadows, highlights, and details.  Total time was about 2-1/2 hours.

This was done the acrylic paint on 5-1/2" x 8" gessoed hardboard.
