    Jun 19, 2010, 10:40 PM - My Celebration V limited edition Fett print! #1

    StarWars.com just unveiled my limited edition print for Celebration V and I thought the subject matter would be of particular interest to TDH!
    Check out the announcement here:
    http://www.starwars.com/fans/events/...s_1/index.html



    BTW - I hear there might still be some ROTJ "tells" in my ESB Fett image.
    Please let me know if you see anything.

    I made sure to fix the helmet, blaster, backpack, cape, no spats, belt pouches (leather and hang down grey ones), - I even added a hint of his ESB sidearm. I matched most of the paint chips to ESB reference as well.

    PS - Thanks Mr. Fett (Andrew) for posing as my reference!

    I love this!! I saw it on the Star Wars web site yesterday, and immediately wanted one...Do you have to attend CV to get one?

    What is really lovely about this painting besides the fact that its gorgeously rendered and composed, is that it captures an actual moment from the film from a completely different point of view. It convincingly tells part of the story we never saw. I really like it.

    Wow, Chris, that is incredible. The only RotJ tell that jumps out to me on a first glance is the bantha skull. Still, GREAT image!

    What an incredible piece of art. I agree that it's also cool because I scene from the movie at a different angle/perspective. Very well done.

    Is there any chance that you will be allowed to make prints, and have it available for sale online?


    This is a great piece of art!

    I'll be picking one of these up from you at the show! I've already picked the place on the wall of my office.

    Looks great!

    I will always think of this happening just off-screen from now on.
    What a completely fantastic painting, my friend!

    I also see that the side pouches are hung ROTJ style.
    The ESB pouches were behind the ammo belt.
    But that's only if we are really nitpicking.
    It's awesome.

    Technically the pouch should be more around the front, but then he'd be resting his arm right on it which looked odd so I let it hang to the side more.
    That's why the ammo pouches only half overlap the hanging pouch. Or is there more?
    Seriously, I've probably got a few days before this goes to the printer so if there's something I can tweak in time, I will.

    The prints will be Celebration V exclusive. If there are any left over after the convention they may go on sale at shop.starwars.com

    I think my main reference for the boot spikes were recent exhibit pics. Are there differences in the spikes from ESB to ROTJ?
    If you look close on the final art you can see a phillips head screw.

    Man, that's a beautiful piece. Love the perspective and the way the background colors shift to "sunset" in the distance.

    Just a small detail question; were the little pull tabs on the back of the boots visible?

    this is true, but when anything blue is lit in orange light, it tends to get more gray in tone, so this colorization is probably more realistic.

    Actually, the only thing I see that stands out apart from the ESB film costume is that it appears the model may have been wearing an MR helmet? Because the paint scheme looks more like prepro 3, but in an MR sort of way. Hardly anything worth changing, though. Nobody is going to care about that.

    Exactly my feel on the suit color. The sunset lighting changes things drastically. Orange and blue are direct color opposites so when combined they cancel each other out and become more gray.

    Good eye on the helmet. Andy's suit was ROTJ, but I had him wear my MR ESB Fett helmet. I changed a few things on it (some of the weathering and fixed the tapered visor), but overall it is still very prepro3.

    I will be fixing the bantha skull before it goes to print.
    Also, the color on the jpg shown is a little washed out (I think the file lost it's color profile before hitting the web). The final has a more contrast and I'm enhancing the sunset colors a bit too.
