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.

    Very cool drawing. Being overweight, out-of-shape, with a head wrapped in TP and standing next to Boba Fett does not get one a lot of respect, apparently. Very nice use of desert colors and the backdrop of the palace. But, well actually, his weapon is an FG 42 used almost exclusively by the Fallschirmjäger. Odd how so many Wehrmacht weapons ended up in a galaxy far far away a long time ago. Great picture. I look forward to more bounty hunters!

    Dengar does not get the respect he deserves. You well actually-ed me! I believe you are most likely right about the gun being a FG 42 used exclusively by the Fallschirmjäger.
