Boba Fett by TereseNielsen Boba Fett by TereseNielsen
This piece was done for a package illustration for the Star Wars miniatures line. I used acrylic from start to finish on this one with maaayyyyybe a little bit of colored pencil to carve out edges here and there. The size was about 17" high.

I've always been a fan of Bobba, and the whole bounty hunter theme. This picture really captures his spirit, the lone gunman. :)

I really want to try this technique, the colored pencil with the acrylic but I'm kinda skiddish about it because my paints always end up really thick, do you thin the acrylic down and paint with a brush or airbrush it on similar to Drew Struzan? If its a trade secret I totally understand, always liked this aesthetic though.

Awesome work!

I cannot believe the newer books are using photoshop effects rathers than employ artists such as yourself. Your paintings look infinitely better.

Not that it is a bad painting but it looks like a woman dressed in Boba Fett's costume.

Don't worry. You can paint. You just have to look at more men.

I wish I was as good as you are!

A few hints:
The legs look like legs of a woman - specifically the boots and the under thighs. The posture is womanly and the shoulders are too narrow for a man. Boba Fett is a tough, bad ass guy. He should like that. The helmet should be smaller relative to the wider shoulders.

That's my view as a man. Good luck!

There is something about the colours that make this picture very haunting and appealing to me.
It's hard to explain but you really captured the beauty of this rough bounty hunter.
