Creative Mondays 213 – Boba Fett – Punishment

What is Creative Mondays?

Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.

So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”

Star Wars and comic books. I can’t get those two subjects out of my head. So if you can’t beat ’em, create a remix with Boba Fett as the Punisher! Mixing my favourite bounty hunter with Marvel’s awesome antihero. I want to see this as a comic!

This image was built from scratch using Photoshop and Illustrator and using reference images of Boba Fett I found online.

It was last summer when I posted my first Punisher inspired image. Creating Frank Castle from a photo manipulation technique was good fun but I always wanted to take the idea a little further. This week I finally revisited the idea and created something a little different.

The Punisher is still one of my all-time favourite characters and Marvel created an awesome anti-hero; one that didn’t mind killing for justice. Whenever I have some time I always go back to this character, read a few of the old stories and become inspired by this guy.

Despite not being around this week (a vacation has been long overdue) I already had in mind something that I wanted to create. It seems I’m on a bit of a comic-book kick what with my Dark Knight poster and now this Punisher concept but just this last week I watched a brilliant short where Thomas Jane reprises his role as The Punisher and it instantly inspired me. It’s a must watch so check it out.

The Punisher has always been a favourite of mine from Marvel. It’s darker tones and Frank Castle’s no nonsense attitude made great reading for an angsty teenager. The character has yet to be fully realised on film as it seems a difficult film to market what with it’s violent nature but I’d say the Thomas Jane version was the closest.

So whether it be a new film or a television series I’d love to see a return from this character. There’s a pretty cool story in there, it’s just waiting for the right mix.

This piece was a bit of a photo manipulation all created in Photoshop. I’ve credited the photos elements I’ve used below from the stock site stock.xchng:
