A fun little star wars sketch I did at the Fan Days (Star Wars) [link] Convention in Dallas. (This looks a little dull due to taking a pic of verses scanning.)

I like that you drew him on blue paper, R2 was my first Star Wars figure back in 1977, I still have him, just a little worse for wear!

Great job!

I'm glad you like him. I don't remember what happened to my R2-D2. I recently got a new vintage cared R2 from Jabba's Sail Barge. In hopes that if I have a kid, they would enjoy Star Wars as much as I did. As far as this piece though, a little girl, probably 9 or 10 commissioned me for this piece. I didn't really have plans to draw him at the convention I was at, but I am very glad that I did. The look of joy on her face was immeasurable! Probably the same amount of joy you had when you got your R2 as a kid.

It is the memories of the things like that which are so great, the joy of the idea is such a powerful emotion. Great job!

Looks great, even though it's a picture of the piece. Very nice.

I wish I could have scanned it in, but it was a on the spot commission, and last day. The young lady who bought it, absolutely loved it! I just wish I could have gotten her a C-3PO as well.

Well sometimes things like that happen, atleast you got a photo of it instead of none at all.

Maybe if they have a outlet you might be able to carry a scanner with you?

They do, but you have to pay for electricity. I'm not up to that profit margin yet. LOL. I'll end up doing another R2, Darth Maul, Boba, and Jabba before the next show.

Ah, never thought they'd charge for that.

Good idea to do some pre-con illustrations of the most popular charcters, maybe throw in Starkiller from the Force Unleashed games. Maybe a revealed/battle damaged Vader? Just throwing out some ideas.

I did see the sith ending Starkiller at the con! He was pretty badass! I'll keep those characters in mind! Maybe General Kota?
