Lando by LivioRamondelli Lando by LivioRamondelli
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.

Never knew why he is never counted among the "Big 3" along with Chewie.

I absolutely love this. I love the lighting and the cape and the fact that it's a character who seems to get so little love. I would say he's one of my favorites, but they're all my favorite. :)
