Mini-Paint: 4-LOM


Saving the best for last in the series of  bounty hunters from "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back", it's 4-LOM!  There is something about an alien, robot-bug head mounted on a C-3PO body that tickled the fancy of a young John Douglas.  To me, 4-LOM and IG-88 were the coolest of the bounty hunters.

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

This painting took about 2 hours.

STEP ONE:  Here are the pencils, roughed in on a 5.5" x 8" toned, gessoed hardboard.

STEP TWO:  Here's the first pass of acrylic painting using a #10 Flat brush, done over the course of an hour.

STEP THREE:  And this is the final painting, which an additional hour to tighten up all the details, using both a #10 Flat brush and #10 Round brush.

This was done with Acrylic Paint on 5.5" x 8" gessoed hardboard.
