Unless you have been living in a cave i am assuming you have seen star wars which i did recently and enjoyed!
The Jedi and Sith were cool but were never the characters that i related to, the characters that i loved and was engaged by were the rogues, bounty hunters and scum bags with all there cultural influences and design (probably why i seem to draw so many scum bags in my personal art).
The one that stole my heart for me was Boba Fett.
This is my homage to the dented helmet himself, there's plenty of awesome illustrations and even better custom costumes of the Fett so i wanted to try something different and focus on narrative and story threw a design, looking at the post republic style.
Nor did i want to redesign Fett which i think is perfect as it is.
I always like the idea of adding to a narrative and story to enrich the universe instead of re telling the same ones.
So here's a little story i came up with to create a character inspired by and linked to Fett.
Kor is the protege of Boba. Even though he had a child Ailyn Vel he didn't want the same life he had for her. Kor was found on one of Bobas hunts stealing and fighting in the slums of Taris. After weeks of stalking his target Boba came across this young boy in a situation he couldn't handle, he had swindled and crossed to many and was surrounded by the scum of the underworld. In the time he had spent on the hunt he had seen much of himself within Kor and most importantly something he could use to his gain, so he intervened. This was how ever all part of the young boys plan to get rid of his rivals which he wouldn't of been able to do on his own.
After the killing was done the boy told Boba of his schemes of how he new he was being watched and like wise Boba told the boy the deal he had for him. Both saw there gain from each other and he became Bobas protege, with his own fighting style and equipment he learned the ways of the bounty hunter from Fett but taking his own path at the same time. choosing combat prowess over a more tactical view Fett had, he took up the badge of the Mandalorian.
I could go in depth on all his gear and the reasons why i designed it the way i did, like the pipe coils coming from his back powering his gauntlets, his shield that gives him is protective nature, his darker tone gauntlets to hide his arms against his cloak so people dont notice him grabing his pistol and blood splats or even the journeymans sash but i will leave you guys to have fun with it.
