Mini-Paint: Zuckuss


It's another Min-Paint!  The penultimate bounty hunter from "The Empire Strikes Back", Zuckuss.  Although, for a while, he was confused with his bounty hunting partner, 4LOM--Kenner even release the wrong name on the action figures for a while.

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

I'm not sure why, but this was one of those which spun out of control, time-wise.  It took about 3-1/2 hours.  Yeah, I know...

STEP ONE:  Here are the quick, scribbled pencils, done on a 5-1/2" x 8" piece of toned, gessoed hardboard.

STEP TWO:  Here's the first pass done with a #10 flat brush, which took about 90 minutes.

* * *

STEP THREE:  And the next two hours (?!) were spent working on textures, highlights, and shadows with both the #10 Flat and #10 Round brush.  Yeah, I really don't know why Zuckuss took so long to paint.  I think it just got a little too "fussy" with the smaller brush.  Live and learn, I guess.  Well, live, anyways...

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