Most of my Star Wars paintings tend to focus on the armored and faceless characters for a few reasons. One, it's way easier to draw a Stormtrooper than nail a likeness of Harrison Ford. But really, I also think the armored characters are just more fun to do in a visual medium.
But with this painting, I wanted to try and do a hopefully dynamic shot of one of the human characters. I chose Lando because I love Cloud City and all the great atmospherics you can play with there. The likeness here is based on some photo reference I found of the great Billy Dee Williams.
