No Good To Me Dead


So here’s a painting of everyone’s favorite bounty hunter, Boba Fett. I was just going for a basic moody shot here. I was trying to stick to a semi-limited palette and keep the colors pretty “earthy”.

I’ve always loved the design for Boba Fett’s helmet-there’s just something so unsympathetic about that faceplate, and it really captures what the character is all about.

Another great thing about painting this character is that you can play around with his totally beat-to-crap armor. I think it’s really easy to get carried away with adding way more nicks and dents than necessary but I honestly tried to restrain myself here. You be the judge. Hope you enjoy!
