I've always loved drawing Star Wars and have already posted some of my pictures: [link] [link] [link]
Star Wars has been around a long time now - so I really don't get anything from seeing images that copy stills from the movies or don't add any originality. So I always try to paint something that you haven't seen before - and with this one I've attempted to mix the epic 'movie poster' look with the feel of a super-hero team cover.
I really went all-out with this piece and it took a very long time to complete. I painted it at a very high resolution (it's a 330mb PSD file) but I dramatically reduced it here to make it quicker to load.
I like the design of the Shock Troopers from Revenge of the Sith... so I thought I'd draw some - and this is the result.
When I started this I also drew the Emperor in the background with his arms raised up to the sky shooting force lightning - as I'd imagined this scene taking place after they'd landed on Mustafar (the volcanic planet) - with him commanding the troops to "find Lord Vader". But... it kind of distracted from the Shock Troopers so I left him out. And I think the piece is better for it.
This is a low-res version of my drawing which I sketched on a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and finished on my desktop PC using Photoshop and a Wacom pad. It's an original depiction of George Lucas’s / Disney’s copyright characters – intended solely to show my artistic ability. I’m not a professional – this is fan art – and none of my work is for sale or available for reproduction.
Don't be afraid - no actual Stormtroopers were harmed in the making of this picture!
I was contacted by - who asked whether I'd be interested in drawing a picture for his Left 4 Dead 2 Mod which he's calling ZombieTroopers. He said it would be based on the book Deadtroopers and feature Boba Fett, Aurra Sing, IG-88 and Bossk - all battling some Zombie Stormtroopers in a destroyed city that looks like Corusant. (Find out more at: [link] )
I liked the idea very much (I like drawing Stormtroopers - even if they are all ickey and bitey) - so I took the brief and turned out what you see here!
I originally drew this in pencil, then scanned it and coloured it in Photoshop using a Wacom tablet. This is a web-optimised version of the image (it is a 100mb bitmap at 600dpi!)
Hope you like it... and please don't have nightmares!
First of all, is awesome. She's been waiting since December for this thing, and it took FOREVER to do. I actually finished some Rex lineart and decided I hated it so I had to start him over from scratch. But now I dig it, so it's all good!
Anyway, she asked for Fives and Rex fighting together on Umbara! That story arc is my favorite from the Filoni Clone Wars series, so I was more than happy to oblige.
So my thanks to her for commissioning me! Here's a list of my rates: [link]
Mixed Media - Storm Troopers were line sketched with a graphite pencil, scanned, and the rest was completed in Photoshop CS5. I never really planned to do this one, but it was more of a side project to help keep me sane through this semester of school.
The Galactic Script at the top translates to: "501st Legion Vader's Fist"
Finally have time to do some art now that the semester is over. Did this one over the course of two weeks. I recently saw the Alderaan trailer for Bioware's upcoming "Old Republic" game, and that is what inspired me to create this picture.
I've also never done a self-portrait, so I decided to use my head as a model. This picture turned out to be a lot more involved than I originally thought..Hope you like it!
Edit: Thank you, all, for all the faves! Much appreciated as always!
Guh, I am so glad to be done with this. @.@; I love these two like nothing else, but I definitely got sick working on this one after a bit. xD
Anyway, it's everyone's favorite duo - Ordo and Skirata! This would actually probably take place somewhere in Triple Zero, considering how many times these two were cavorting around the rooftops blasting the shebs off of the terrorists. ;D
Can I take a minute here to ramble just a bit why Skirata merits my eternal respect? He's a shabuir like Vau, but sheer amount of love for his boys is just ... mind boggling. It's easy to love someone's who's pretty easy and okay to take care of ... but there's no mistaking that the Nulls have been through hell and back and; well, they're a bit of a handful at times, as he says. And if he says that, that's something.
But it's not just the Nulls, it's every decent (or not!) person that he comes across that needs that mentor-figure. Hell, it even extends to who's reading the books, as I swear he has this magnetic loyalty that just reels you in.
tldr; he cares - not about who you were/are in terms of lineage, but your character and self. And that's a rare trait.
So! Anyway, enjoy the picture. ;D
