Here they are, the sketch cards for Star Wars Galaxy 4.

A special story about the middle card second row. The character is Pooja, Padme's niece. Probably the only Pooja card you'll see.

With permission from her father, I used the likeness of Katie Johnson, daughter of Albin Johnson the founder of the 501st. Katie died of brain cancer, and was honored by the R2 builders with R2KT, a pink astro droid.

I wanted to do something special, so after getting the ok from Katie's dad, I painted this card in her memory, which will be one of my 6 return cards. When I get it back, I will send it to Albin to use it for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, either by selling the card for the money or donating the card directly.

As for the rest of the cards, some will be familiar as they are re-do's of a few of my Clone Wars cards, just because I wanted to do those up special, and try to do a better job on them than before.

I hope you guys like them.

Wow! Apailana looks so gorgoeus! The perls are so amazing!

The original, had more depth in tones, where as the scan just kind of put everything together.

The perals were done by dipping the tip of a pencil into white acrylic paint and then pressing down on the card. I now use white gel pens instead.

Spread the word fellow trooper.

As soon as I get the card back, I'll email Albin. I'd call if I had his number.

And Thanks.

I am impressed with the wide variety of Expanded Universe characters I have seen represented by artists working on series 4. You have a nice spread already.

The guesture of including Katie is appreciated. I feel it is no understatement to say she has become the daughter of a Legion.

Be well,
Thomas

Thanks, and as for Katie, its the least I could do.

Now wait for the rest of my cards to appear in moments.

You should see the queen in person, the rendering is so much better than what the scan shows.

I am posting selected cards seperated from the batches to show more detail. And!, the queen card will be one of my returns.

Thanks.

they look awesome! especially clones... the pilot with yellow (in top right corner) - this is Odd Ball?

Probably, I just liked the pose and the difference in the helmet from the other clones.

Thanks for the comment, and more clones to come.
