Topic: Original paintings of Boba Fett

I create 8-Bit inspired paintings of different iconic characters. Boba Fett is one of my most popular ones (and definitely my favorite).  Take a look at my portfolio online and commission your own Fett paintings.

listergallery, very cool! Found your work recently for our Twitter and great to see you join the site here.

What's your creative process for 8-bitting a composition?

Re: Original paintings of Boba Fett

Hey thanks a lot!  My process usually starts with a visual breakdown of whatever i'm painting.  I take the most important elements of a picture and sketch those in first, then I build off of those main shapes, I try to make the subject recognizable but still very simplified.  Its kind of like I try to get it to the point where its in between a complete blur and a sharp image.

With Boba Fett paintings specifically, he actually lends himself quite well to being simplified into an 8-Bit-like image. There are a lot of angular shapes that make up his helmet and body.

I've done a lot of different subjects in this 8-Bit inspired style, I recently did 10 Star Wars themed paintings for a collector of mine who is doing a Star Wars room in his house.  Here's the link to check out those paintings:
