Dengar The Unloved Bounty Hunter

Dengar is one of the least loved villains in Star Wars.  He is an overweight bounty hunter with a head wound armed with a modified German MG 42.  He was part of Darth Vader’s band of bounty hunter miscreants that show up in Empire Strikes Back.  He also shows up again in Jabba The Hutt’s palace in Return of The Jedi.  I illustrated him in the desert wastes beyond the Dune Sea of Tatooine.

You May Fire When Ready

I created an illustration of Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin, also known as Governor Tarkin.  He is a character in the first Star Wars movie.  Peter Cushing portrayed Tarkin in the original film. Tarkin is one of the most formidable villains in the Star Wars movies.  He is the commander of the Death Star and orders the destruction of the planet Alderaan.  According to what I read Peter Cushing found Tarkin’s boots, furnished by the wardrobe department, to be very uncomfortable.  Lucas agreed to limit shots where Cushing’s feet would be visible, allowing him to wear his own slippers.  He destroyed a planet while wearing slippers!
