I had met the challenge of the Thing… then the challenge of the Clone Trooper… so what next? I jumped to the head of the line, got ahead of the curve, drew something before I was challenged to do it… Boba Fett!
As with other recent drawings, this one was all old-school… pencil, sharpie, colored pencils. It’s a little wider than it ought to be, for a properly proportioned Boba Fett head… but that leaves no doubt that I really drew it… ‘cause nobody would ever copy someone else like this! 🙂
I didn’t scan the intermediate pencil and ink stages for this one… I wish I had, though, because in the drawings I’ve done lately I’ve learned a little bit about myself. It turns out for me, the best process to yield the strongest final results are for me to sketch in pencil, then scan that and use it as a baseline to draw digitally. Sketching in pencil lets me interject more of my own style and personality into the work, but finishing on the computer lets me get the strongest and cleanest representation. Also, when I screw up something in the inking… it’s much harder to fix than when working digitally.
