Somewhatnerdy posted an interview with Star Wars artist Joe Corroney covering his Star Wars artwork and more. Joe talks a little about his future projects (which includes Star Wars and an upcoming print for Star Wars Celebration Europe), getting into the industry, and his favorite character.

Who is your favorite character to draw?

Joe Corroney: That would probably be a toss up between Darth Vader and Boba Fett. I like Darth Vader because his costume is dark and dynamic and it fits my graphic, high contrast drawing style. But I also enjoy that character’s story the most of anyone else in the saga—the light and dark side aspects to his nature, his fall from grace and redemption.  For storytelling purposes, it makes him a great character to work with.  Also, because he’s a masked character, you have to rely on body language or certain dynamic angles instead of expression when working with Vader in illustrated storytelling.  It’s fun and challenging at the same time. And I like Boba Fett because there’s so much incredible detail that makes him fun to draw.  And as a comic book artist, I really enjoy going over the top with detail whenever possible.  And from a personality standpoint, he’s the bad boy of the Star Wars universe. He’s the “man with no name” western character who has no real allegiances to anyone but himself.  You don’t want to cross him, but at the same time you want him on your side of the fight when it comes down to it.  All of that makes him really fun to work with in scenes.
