Imperial Assault: Greedo and Obi-Wan

Greedo


I can't help but feel a little sorry for Greedo, pulled posthumously into a controversy not of his making. He's got an interesting palette of pastel colours, and a fairly monochromatic face. I painted the eyes with gunmetal and two blue washes. It was a mild struggle getting good definition between his green-blue face and his blue-green flight suit, but it came out OK in the end.

Greedo becomes famous

Obi-Wan


He only really came together for me when I painted his hair and beard. Not a bad figure, but I'm not sure how often he will hit my tabletop being, well, dead. From a certain point of view.

Obi-Wan teaches his last lesson

    1. You can see him reevaluating his life choices.

  3. Very impressive painting. Greedo has always been one my favourite minor characters, & you've done him justice. I really like the detail of the Corellian bloodstripes on Han's trousers too.

    1. Thanks, PC! I like to think he was trying to make a name for himself so he could get out and go straight.

  4. That lighting effect you did on Obi Wan's sleeve is great
