One such fan was Russell Klimas, a light painter and photographer from Colorado Springs who creates art using a drone, Google Earth, and special software. So, why Baby Yoda?

“I thought it would be fun, plus, I enjoy The Mandalorian,” Klimas tells Popular Mechanics.

It turns out that Klimas has covered several other iconic pop culture figures like Marvel's Iron Man, the Hamilton logo, the Dark Mark and Deathly Hallows symbols from the Harry Potter novels, the bat signal, and Pikachu.

“I put an overlay into Google Earth, added the place marks that the drone would follow, and then exported the list of points to a KML file,” Klimas says.

Once the drone is in the sky, it follows the place marks set by Klimas, who captures the light show from the ground while simultaneously monitoring the flight trajectory and altitude via Litchi (Android, iOS), an autonomous flight app.

Klimas then captures the drone at work via a long exposure with his camera. In order to change the color—from Baby Yoda's brown robe to his green skin—Klimas changes the filter of the Lume Cube light through the exposure.

This particular project has not been without its setbacks, though. When Klimas first attempted to light paint Baby Yoda, his drone crashed and ended up with two broken arms.

“It’s at the repair shop now,” Klimas says. He adds that he was lucky enough to have a friend lend him his own Mavic Pro for a second attempt. This time, Klimas’ efforts were successful.
