THE EMPIRE: An Equal Opportunity Employer

This MOC was inspired by my 6-year old son, who took a minifig head that had bright blue sunglasses and stuck it on the body of a storm trooper.

LEGO Portrait: Darth Maul

Share

What’s not to love about a guy that gets chopped in half by Obi Wan Kenobi?

Anyhow, this bad boy measures in at 20″x30″ (64×96 LEGO pixels) and is comprised of eleven colors: black, light bluish grey, dark blue, dark bluish grey, dark pink, orange,  red, reddish brown, sand green, tan, and yellow.

I found a decent picture on Wookiepedia to use as a reference starting point. I loved the characteristic Darth Maul snarl and figured it would make for a good portrait. Darth Maul’s distinct and easily recognizable facial markings also make for good subject matter — especially when the primary colors of the makeup are two of the five basic colors of LEGO: red and black (the others being blue, yellow, and white). The background in the reference picture was pretty blank so I used tan and grey to be reminiscent of Tatooine, where the Sith Apprentice first reveals himself to Obi Wan and Qui-Gon Jinn.
