Star Wars - Jedi Master Yoda - Digital Painting by Robert Marzullo
Here is the finished digital painting that I created of Master Yoda. The greatest Jedi knight ever! I haven't done much Star Wars stuff since my illustrious art career began but I have always been a huge fan. I honestly didn't feel confident enough because there is such a defined look and feeling of the characters and I was much better suited for an overly styled comic book creation. And now with digital painting I can do more in depth studies of characters like this one and come a lot closer to their overall look.
I plan on doing a lot more Star Wars characters. Both from the old and new versions. I am not one of the fans that swear by one or the other. I am pretty happy to see anything Star Wars. Shoot, I was even happy to see them on Happy Meals! ( I am pretty easily pleased. :) I am most impressed with the earlier movies because of what they accomplished with so little technology. The models, makeup, and effects were ground breaking. They still hold up to this day in my opinion. So awesome job Sir George Lucus! You made the imagination of millions of children expand even further. Possibly even billions at this point. And the new movies still have a great spin on them. The new effects are fun to watch and I enjoyed the new characters even though a lot of fans said they didn't, I am sure they still watched the movies over and over again.
So I hope you enjoy this piece. It was fun to do and more are on the way. I plan on doing a large collage of all the characters when I have them completed. It is a great way to expand my abilities as an artist and show my love for a concept that further pushed me into the world of imagination and creation.
Thanks for watching and you can get a higher resolution download of this on my DeviantArt page at the link below.
May the force be with you! ;)
