From my original Instagram post:
9x12 oil on aluminum panel.
This was a commission for someone who liked my Lego minifigure paintings, but wanted one of his wife's favorite minifig, to give to her as a gift. Sweet.
This particular Boba Fett is from the UCS Slave 1 ship (Lego Set 75060). If you swipe left, you can see how much more detail Lego added to this minifig, compared to some others.
Also, I included a work in progress pic, so you can see my painting next to the original photograph, provided by the client.
Often, my paintings end up as a more saturated version of the original photo I paint from. They can be similar, in that way, to old photos shot with kodachrome film ... remember those? The film somehow exaggerated all the colors, (giving the middle finger to subtlety).
I LOVE old kodachrome photos. Truly love them. I'd be happy to share my last bite of dessert with them ... or if an old kodachrome photo asked me for help robbing a bank, I wouldn't say no. I'd first want to know why it needed the money. I have THAT kind of love for kodachrome.
Shit. Now I want to paint some old kodachrome photos. #anArtistsWorkIsNeverDone
