Awesome Star Wars Fan Art by mandalorianhunterMonday, April 8, 2013
From Jakarta, Indonesia, Enrico Mulyadi (aka mandalorianhunter) takes his Star Wars collection to the next level! Check out his work below.
Two years ago, I got an awesome birthday gift from my girlfriend, Fenny Lita. She knew how much I love Star Wars clones and bought me my first Sixth Scale Sideshow figure, the Clone Trooper Phase 1 Commander. Previously I had collected Star Wars 3.75″ figures and vehicles, but with the articulation and accessories Sixth Scale has I fell in love! I bought Commander Cody for my second figure, and my Military collection started to grow…
I started photographing my figures just a few months ago, first with Boba Fett, and loved the result. Now I can’t stop photographing them! I can pose my figures and create scenes for anything I imagine.
I get my inspiration of course from Star Wars movies. I love seeing my favorite characters fighting, blasting, and doing action scenes. Movie posters are a good source too – they have great action poses and sweet compositions.
The original trilogy made me such an Imperial fanboy! I love Hoth and Endor scenes, and fell in love with the Snowtroopers, AT-AT, and AT-ST. I also love Stormtroopers, and searched for almost a full year for my Sideshow Stormtrooper. It’s really fun hunting down rare figures!
** SPOILER ALERT! **
One of my all time favorite scenes in Star Wars is the Order 66 scene. I love Clone Troopers, and seeing them helping the Jedi Generals fight Trade Federation armies. It’s a heartbreaking scene when Emperor Palpatine launched the Order 66. My heroes turned to enemies, and seeing Jedi Masters like Ki-Adi Mundi, and Aayla Secura killed by their own commander made me incredibly sad.
I don’t have a studio, and shoot my figures with a fairly simple budget. I use a DSLR camera, but a pocket camera can produce good quality photos too. I use a desk lamp, backdrop (green or white screen), sometimes flash with triggers, tripod, and of course, creativity!
The scene where Anakin Skywalker battles Obi-Wan Kenobi on Mustafar is another big favorite of mine. When Obi-Wan Kenobi says “You were the chosen one Anakin…” I get emotional.
I use imaging software like Photoshop for the final results. Sometimes I look for tutorials on how to create certain effects, but many of them I achieved during my college days when I took Multimedia Design.
