R2D2 and C3PO (drawing) might look like a promotional photo, but it's actually an impressive traditional piece by Quelchii.  Masterful blending, detail, and technique come together beautifully in this tribute to these two well known and hard working droids.

R2D2 and C3PO (drawing)

Traditional drawing of R2D2 and C3PO. Can somebody explain to me why I decided to draw C3PO? Drawing this golden robot was a nightmare, but I'm happy with the result and the shiny look. So in the end it was a nice challenge!^^
I'll probably draw something from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, when I know more about the characters or watched the movie. :)

Reference was a Star Wars promo (?) picture.

Paper DIN A4 190g/m²; Faber-Castell Polychromos artists' colour pencils, Copic Ciao and Sketch marker, Copic Multiliner 0.05 & SP 0.03, uni-ball Signo pigment ink um-153 white; time: ~20 hours

Beautiful Nicole.:)
The shine on C3PO and R2D2 is AMAZING!!!.Also it is amazing how you can make your drawings look very realistic and I was wondering how many years of practice did it take you to make your drawings look like a photo?
