    These are the random attempts of a SW Fan at being an artist. I hope you enjoy them. I will have brief descriptions and urls here, and the images will be further down the thread. Enjoy!

    Mando Sniper T-Shirt[blockquote] [image=http://i396.photobucket.com/albums/pp48/CPL_Macja/t_shirt_mandosniper.jpg] [image=http://i396.photobucket.com/albums/pp48/CPL_Macja/MandoSniper.jpg]
    This is just a t-shirt concept based on the USANG SDM one I got when I completed the course in Arkansas back in 2009. It was my last hurrah in the service and I really liked the idea. This is also the banner for the symbol that I created first.[/blockquote]

    This is a coat of arms that I created for Clan Prann (OC Mandalorian/Corellian in one of my fics)

    This is what I visualized the Shoulder Unit Patch of the 212th Attack Battalion GAR would have worn if they had uniforms like the US Army.

    This is what I visualized the Shoulder Unit Patch of the 501st Legion GAR would have worn if they had uniforms like the US Army.

    I am working on creating a Unit Crest for an X-Wing Squadron and have a couple of WIPs for the same patch. I know that they are not of the best quality but I don't have Photoshop (or any other type of fancy graphic software for that fact) so I was stuck with MS Paint. If you know of anyone that is good with Photoshop and wants to clean these up, have at it. I am not too proud to admit that I need help.
    Version 1.0
    Version 1.2
    Version 1.3
    Version 1.4

    This the Unit Patch that I worked up for an X-Wing RP that was being run by s65horsey. The name of the group was Phantom Squadron.

    This another series of Unit Patches that I have worked up for STAR WARS: INTERVENTION (A story-telling style OT starfighter game) that is being run by Bravo. The name of the group was the MERC Fighter-Interceptor Squadron. They have since been renamed Guardian Squadron.
    Version 1.1
    Version 1.2
    Version 2.0
    Version 2.5< -- The groups choice!

    This is a flag that I created for the Saga AU FanFic Series that I am working on: Legacy of the Republic. This is the Cover Art that I created for the first book in the series is called The Vaders. Come over and have a read sometime.

    My submission for the Fan Art section of the Even Greater Summer Civil War in the SWC.

    Thanks for the comments. I wouldn't really consider myself an "artist". I am simply doing cut and paste to combine some ideas. The real artists are the users that do completely original works. I tip my hats to them.

    These are just some other things that I have cobbled together:

    Thanks for that Angel...

    I am new to the FA lingo... what did you mean by the first motive?

    BTW... I am thinking of moving the Banner in the first post to my second post and edit the first post with all T-Shirt designs.

    What do you all think?

    I meant the one about "saving the galaxy" with the storm tropper helmet.

    *imagines her wearing that at school and the reactions of her students*

    Believe it or not... MS Paint.

    I have a new laptop that I work on, along with my work computers. I haven't had time to purchase nor install Photoshop on the new laptop and my work computers have the bare essentials. (I am just happy they haven't blocked me from tf.n yet:D )

    I have some pieces that I have posted on the *officialPhotoshop* thread here I am looking for some help on. I will be posting them here soon.

    Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!

    Thanks for the concrit.

    My "sniped" stormtrooper seems to be a fan fav.

    Ironically I was only goofing around with that and wasn't even going to put it up.

    Hi there! **waving** Some very nice pieces here--the "Saving the Galaxy" tee is great (even if it WAS just "goofing around!" ;) )! I like the logos, too--very clean, very good choices for color. Nice work--keep it going! :D

    This is the post that I put up on the *Official PhotoShop* Board.
    This is my cry for help. I would love to get these cleaned up so that my fellow squadmates can vote on them. If you know of any one around here that can help tell them to PM me, Please.

    This fanart thread is like a colourful market. So many things the eyes can feast on. So many different ways of expressing yourself, of doing SW characters plus other themes (like Han did his Piccard recently) and ideas that are triggered due to looking at the art of others.

    So I indeed enjoy to enjoy when I find the time to do so.

    What do you mean by 'cleaned up' ? They look clean to me :)
    I don't think I know anyone that just tidies up work, but I can ask.

    You can download a trial version of photoshop on the Adobe website ^^

    Thanks for the complement.^

    To me I guess I can see all the little flaws that are there because I am the one that put them together.
