Very cool Jay,
6" Boba and the Chief Ewok turned fantastic.

I recently posted about my renewed interest in sketching in the Good with your Hands topic after picking up a small Wacom tablet and giving it a go.

I started with Leia Bespin (of course) but I think she was a little too ambitious for my fist try in over 20 years.

This was where I left her for now but will come back to her after more practice. Not bad but far from great.


So for my second try I decided to go a little easier and go for something without a face to practice other things for now.
So here is my first attempt at Boba Fett.
I'm only putting the final sketch and color attempts leaving the pre-sketch and framework stuff back.





I plan on doing a Stormtrooper and Vader as well (Vader scares me with all that black - should be an interesting attempt at shading!).

Anyway..........

cheers!
Very Happy

Jay, that Boba is ace, top work  :clap:

How long from start of sketch to end of colouring would you say that took?

Thanks!

Honestly, I worked on it in total about 8-10 hours!!!!! over this entire week when I had some time to devote to it. The first sketch work was changed to add in the blaster so that added some time. Realistically, I would say the sketch alone took the most time (not shown above) since I do it in stages and the sketch work was always my weak side. The outline (shown above - probably should call it the 'inking stage') took about an hour once the sketch was done and then shading and color about 2 hours max. Probably much less time if I sat and didn't walk away from the PC for beers, smokes, phone, shiny objects, etc. haha Smile

I know it is very slow for me, but that's fine. Less time watching TV and browsing for things to buy! lol!

cheers!
Very Happy

Lol, be careful of distracting shiny objects. Look forward to the Stormie now (and Vader)   cheers

A sad day, but the tool that quickly let me update my first post with my Flickr set with this stuff no longer works. I need to find a replacement.

But for now, since I am over the moon about completing my loose Kenner run, I had to bump this. cheers



You can view the flickr set with everything right HERE.


cheers!
