Here’s a look at my painting process for a pair of custom shoes featuring Darth Sidious/Emperor. Painting process one starts with taping off both shoes so I can paint the star fields first before working on the image of the Emperor.
The star field is achieved using Liquitex free style brushes. I love these brushes because they give such a great random splatter effect.
After using the Liquitex free style brushes to create the star field, I moved on to adding a glow to various stars and adding bursts around the shoes. Then I painted in the main white base shape of the Emperor on both shoes. Once that dried overnight, I put down the pencils and then outlined the Emperor for each shoe.A Galaxy Far Far Away, Custom Apparel, custom shoes, Custom Vans, Darth Sidious, Emperor Palpatine, Fantasy Art, Jedi, Liquitex Art, Liquitex Free Style Brush, Pepe Melan, scifi art, Sith, star wars, Star Wars art, Star Wars Fan Art, Star Wars Shoes, The Force, Unique Realm, Vans
