The Book of Boba Fett is premiering in December, so I decided to celebrate the revival of Star Wars gritty un-realism with a themed watercolor :).
Boba Fett, the infamous bounty hunter in a Mandalorian armour, is one of the most iconic characters of the Star Wars universe, and I tried to convey his badass “knight-errant” or perhaps “conquering king” attitude here, in the Wild West setting of Tatooine.
This time, something a bit different :). As some of you know, I have returned to painting and opened an art shop on Etsy and RedBubble earlier this year. A Youtube channel seemed like a natural next step for me, and I’m lucky to have the support of my wonderful family in this new endeavor.
Hope you’ll enjoy my first YT relaxing art video, and I hope you’ll stick around my new channel for next videos, too!
Lastly, big thanks to Wakizashi for tips and encouragement! 😉
This week I’m giving you something a bit different 🙂 Don’t worry though, a somewhat scathing review is in the works and will be up in a few days 😉
Those of you who follow our blog for a while know that the last three years have been a bit crazy for me and my family – a move across half the planet, and a total change of nearly all aspects of life, from personal to professional. One of the things that have changed for the better was that I have finally made the decision to return to one of my lifelong passions which was left by the side for the last several years – painting.
You’ve seen some of my watercolors on this blog already, here and here, for example. But I mainly paint nature, with a dash of fantasy – and now you can find my new paintings on Etsy, where I have just opened a shop. I would like to thank S.D. for that nudge, as he kindly suggested it to me a while back :). It took some time and effort, but now I started selling prints of my paintings (sending anything from NZ is a real pain, quite risky and costly at that) which are produced in shops in the US, Europe and Australia.
Those of you on Goodreads already know I’ve been bingeing on the Dragon Ball manga lately 😉 I absolutely love the early volumes with kid Goku and Kuririn, the trainings and the Strongest Under the Heavens tournaments, Tenka’ichi Budôkai!
I’m not the only fan of Goku in the family, though – here’s a portrait of Gogeta done by an 11-year-old :D.
In anticipation of the new season of The Mandalorian, the only thing that stands between Star Wars franchise and a demeaning, protracted death by thousand Reys, here’s my watercolor version of the eponymous character :D.
