This is a piece I did for the upcoming Star Wars Fan Days Convention in Irving, TX. I made this with sharpie, ink, watercolor, colored ink wash, and colored sharpie for details. I'm like this one but, for me, it doesn't have the same emotional impact that the Emperor piece has. I would have loved to have more ink wash shading, but I didn't want to over work the piece and muddy up the color.

I wrote a quick blog entry about this character on my website. Click the [link] to check it out!

Thanks! He's one of my faves too. I still have my Ackbar from 1983. I'm refurbishing him and he's got a great home standing next to the computer!

Great one! I liked it when the Mon Calamari showed up, it made the movies seem wider for me.

Agreed! I love their design and the design of their ships. Great stuff!

NICE! :D

I've always found it hard to draw aliens, so I hardly ever do (with the exception of the occasional Predator or Xenomorph, that is) so to me, this is awesome :clap:

I really like your crosshatching here ;)

I love, nay, LOVE drawing aliens! I have a whole comic book full of them. It's called Xenex the Bug Man [link] . I'm heading over now to see your works! I want to see a Predator!

Oh, wow! :omfg:

I want one! :eager:

I would TOTALLY buy a copy if they had one at my comic's store! :D

And thanks! :XD:

Unfortunately I only have about 3 deviations predator/alien based, but I plan on doing more soon :)
