Jabba's Palace: Bib Fortuna Sketch

Bib Fortuna from Return of the Jedi.

This sketch was a bit of a walk down memory lane.  When I was about 15-17 I was hopelessly obsessed with the Star Wars trilogy.  I had a massive collection of the original action figures, and read all of the extended universe novels and comics (except for Splinter of the Mind's Eye).  I even played the Star Wars RPG with my friends.  For some reason my devotion to Star Wars ended around 1999 though.  

When I was young I always tried to draw the monsters and characters from the films, but consistently failed.  So quickly sketching Fortuna, and having it turn out close to how I wanted, was far more satisfying than warranted.
