SAVAGE DARTH MAUL by JoeJusko SAVAGE DARTH MAUL by JoeJusko
The finished piece! Acrylic 17"x23"

I added a couple of halos and pin lights to the stars in Photoshop. Wasn't necessary but I decided to play a bit.

He's gotta be pretty gutsy to brandish a Lightsaber while going around Barefoot.
He could accidently burn or lose a toe. O.O ?!?

Really, though, your rendering of the tattoos is bold AND fluid. Posed with convincing menace (uhhh... wait a sec... ooops.).

Have you done a tutorial on painting special effects for your images? I would like to see your method of hand painting a glow or mist.

Nice image and color, Joe. Thanks for sharing this.

Great journey of a making of.
I like it a lot. The textures are really great and all those little details in the skin and wrinkles of his robe, just great.

the only thing i don't like is are the blades of the lightsaber, they are red in the middle, then white and then a red glow. I like the sabers more traditional white blade (not that superwhite like in the new movies wich just looks stupid), but a little pinkish gradient to the middle of the blade would be cool. Or just paint the inside white.
I know, it is easier said than done, especially when you use a brush instead of an Airbrush. But that is just me.

Love the image anyways!

Excellent artwork, the texture of the torso is stunning, it absolutely shows that those are etchings not bodypaint or tattoos.

But everything else in Star Wars is so intricate and crazy though. They gave Yoda a fucking sister that is never in the fucking movies, but she still exists. Cmon man...
