Storm Trooper Blaster Ad by JRMurray76 Storm Trooper Blaster Ad by JRMurray76
Since I put so much time into vectoring the blaster rifle for the Princess Leia illustration, I thought I should get a little more millage out of it. So I put together this ad for the blaster based on the specs and copy found on Wookiepedia, then I took it into PS and aged it a bit. Maybe it's a torn out page from an old Imperial magazine... The Weekly Imperial Post or something... I dunno.

5.10.16—Just updated the main image. Made some minor adjustments to it. I started a new site with my brother to sell prints, and hopefully soon we'll have this on there at murraybroscreative.com.

I figure the more you put into it the better you'll get.

Thanks.

Actually, i've been trying to get into vectorizing ARTworks, but i have no idea where to start.

I got myself a Wacom Bamboo-SPLASH, a styluspad (or Tablet or whatever it's called) but have no skill/ idea how to use it. Do i need other programs too, or what?

I use Adobe Illustrator CS3 ('cause I'm poor and can't afford the newer versions), but there's other vector programs out there like Freehand if you can find it. There's also Corel, but I've never used it. Do a search, I'm sure you can find something that will work for you.

Is that included in Adobe Flash Cs4? Cos imma be getting that sometime, and i would like to know if its compatible, or if one comes with the other.

Vectoring ART works really well from a Tablet, yeah?

I just use a mouse, though since I came back from Burbank I've been trying to use my bamboo a little more in photoshop. Still, as far as vectoring, I'm more comfortable using the mouse.

Now all they need are competent people to fire them.

I blame it on their helmets.

Well they killed all the Jedi and actually fought in a war, nit to mention they where bred for combat. The Stormtroopers where just recruited hacks.

Maybe they were just recruited hacks with bad helmets...?
