Boba Fett_Sarlaac Escape by LivioRamondelli Boba Fett_Sarlaac Escape by LivioRamondelli
Many Star Wars fans feel that Boba Fett couldn't possibly have met his end in the Sarlaac Pit..and I share that sentiment. So, here's my take on how he might have survived- namely by igniting his wrist flamethrower while inside the beast and crawling through the burning ruins. I was trying to capture a sort of shadowy desert sunset feel with the lighting.

Screen purists will note a few liberties I've taken here- For example Jabba's Sail barge was blown to smithereens during the fight that would theoretically take place before this moment..but, I really wanted to include the Barge in the background for scale and so there it is. Also technically the Sarlaac pit is deeper in the ground as depicted in the film, but I wanted to have Fett standing as the Pit and the horizon smoldered behind him.

This painting is meant to be a companion piece to my "Vader on Hoth" painting I did a while back. With a similar composition and a similar "it might have happened!" theme. I'm thinking of doing a whole series like this..

Thanks! I had some issues with people spreading my work around so I don't post any high-res versions anymore unfortunately. But I'm glad you like it!

He did survive if you read the books that tells the story after the movie.

Yeah, I have read them. But since only the movies are true canon, I just did a take on him getting out.

I think is "it might have happened scene' works very well. And there are plenty of ways to fudge what's seen in the movie. Yes, the barge exploded, but we didn't see the aftermath; there could have been a burnt hulk left from the blast. And maybe the Sarlaac heaved itself up higher while Fett gave it a fatal case of heartburn. I hope you keep doing these scenes!
