Star Wars: Chewbacca by TereseNielsen Star Wars: Chewbacca by TereseNielsen
Can you hear him doing his moany, yelp thing? I think Yoda and Chewie are my favorite Star Wars characters, so this was a treat to paint. This image is another box illustration for the miniatures set entitled "The Dark Times".

Size: 12x17"
Medium: Acrylic, colored pencils

The backgrounds remind me of Ivan Bilibin's illustrations, which is definitely not a bad thing!

I love your work :)

i'm with you on that and don't forget r2d2 here's pretty awesome too, especially since he screams like a girl. I love the way you portrayed chewbacca here, the coloring and line art is outstanding....you have made my day

This is truly beautiful. I love how you managed to make him look both wild and dignified, as a wookiee should.

One of the best pieces of Wookiee art out there. Setting detail is spectacular as well.

I imagine that George requested it to you this way, but to that Chewbacca the stains of its coat pretend to be shades that changes of coat tone. For everything the rest can say that it is a wonderful drawing.

Im sorry if it is not well written. It is Spanish's automatic translation...

Great portraitation!
Super color work.

I was just wondering, do you get access to concept drawings, photos and what not of the Star Wars charactrers? I mean, theres often a lot of details on the clothes, weapons etc.. Or do you have to find out how it looks like for yourself?

:iconteresenielsen:
TereseNielsen Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010
I sleuth things out as well as ask for specific photos or reference.

PKT Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010
Alright, thanks for answering :)

But I guess the fanbase(including myself) of Star Wars is so huge, so the reference material out there is just sick.
Did some digging on Boba Fett for a 3d model once, and I must say, how people are able to find such detailed photos and drawings of etch little equipment on that guy, is really impressive.

Anyway, keep up! :D

Aw, one of my FAVORITE SW characters! :clap::clap: I love the elemental feel to this--the stylization of the b/g, and the depth it has, and all the movement in his pose and long, luxurious fur--and he's wielding his beloved bowcaster, too... LOVE it, totally and utterly! :clap::clap:

Awesome. I love Endor tree backdrops on anything. Chewie looks great, you captured his personality perfectly. And I might add that seeing a Wookiee in the woods peaks my bigfoot fandom as well.
