Clone Commander Fett by Robert-Shane Clone Commander Fett by Robert-Shane
The character of Boba Fett was first conceived as a kind of 'super' Stormtrooper - and initiallly had a white outfit. Even though the white armour never made it to the movie I thought that would be a cool look to draw.

What I've done here is mix elements of Jango Fett's Mandalorian outfit with a Clone Trooper armour in an attempt to come up with a plausible reason for the armour to be white.

For the purpose of this picture... Jango is testing out the standard clone armour - but insisted on wearing his own superior body suit and helmet to protect his vital organs. He knew that the clone armour was being mass-produced cheaply and he didn't want to get killed on account of a test! It's a stretch I know! :lol:

If you've got a better excuse for why he might be wearing a white outfit - let's hear it!

This is an entirely original depiction of George Lucas's characters. First drawn with pencil then scanned and coloured in Photoshop with a Wacom tablet.

Hope you like!

*Theory*
Since Jango was (if I remember correctly) also a consultant when it came to training and equipping the Clones, and also helped to design the armor, maybe he's wearing one of the early prototype suits to test out some new blast-proofing material? I know that a number of prototypes get used and re-used to test new ideas or features for adaptation, so maybe this picture is of such a case?

At any rate, well done!

My thoughts exactly! :thumbsup:
... and I like the idea of him adding 'consultant' to his business card :lol:

Nice work ! I saw your picture of Jango Fett wearing a black-coloured armor, but this white one pleases me too !
You are really skilled, congratulations !

:lol: thanks very much. I think I prefer the white one - although I was never really happy with how this one turned out.

So he won't stand out, or so he will inspire a sense of unity with the troops he's commanding.

Sounds like a very plausible explanation for why he might wear this suit. But I can't help but think that he's too selfish to care about any of the clones (except Boba) - instead he just wants to try out the armour to see if it would be something he could use or adapt himself?

Even better, but I thought he trained them himself? You would want to lead by example.

Good point - I think you're right - and I agree that the pride in him would want to show the clones how to fight as best as they can! :thumbsup:

:lol: I think Lucasfilm did a pretty good job on the design of the Clone Troopers - after all they hard a hard act to follow with the original Stormtrooper and Boba Fett designs - but glad you like this alternative!

Thanks - I'm glad you like the concept. And thanks for saying the back story idea makes sense too! I thought it seemed pretty far out - but then again nothing is too far out in the Star Wars universe! I mean who would have believed that Darth Vader built C-3PO! :lol:

You are welcome~
The way you blur the colors reminds me of an air brush. I mean a real one, not the photoshop tool lol. And the sharp edges look as if you masked the paper when you were spraying. I guess I mean to say it has a traditional feel to it. :thumbsup:

Thanks very much for the insightful comments. I learned to paint with real paint a long time before I picked up a digital 'brush' - so I do always aim for a traditional look in my photoshop work. Thanks for noticing! :boogie:

For me, I was learning to paint with acrylics and photoshop at the same time. So they worked hand-in-hand to help me see things as color/ shapes. And you are very welcome!

Thank you. McQuarrie and Johnston made so many cool designs for Star Wars that even the ones that didn't make it into the movies still get recycled in the expanded universe!
