I seem to have a lot of side projects going on right now. One of them is for a friend of mine who is building a model of Jabba's palace. He asked if I could help with the detail work, namely painting up the figures in the diorama. So, here's one of the first figures, the big man himself, Jabba the Hutt.
So, a bit of geek trivia. Jabba's appearance actually changes between various iterations: The Return of the Jedi, the lousy CGI part they put back into Star Wars: a New Hope, the Phantom Menace, and all the other video games, comic books, etc. that are out there. His appearance has actually changed quite a bit, making it a little hard to figure out exactly how to paint him. But I decided to go with the original, green screen, no flying droids zipping around, yes-I-can-see-where-you-cut-the-film version.
And hey, two points to the painting goal.
