    Hey gang- I'm Lin Workman. I'm a graphic artist in Memphis, TN and self-publish comics from time to time.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/linbt3bsm.jpg]

    I also tend to sketch a lot when I have free time or am at a convention or have a layover on the way to one.

    I'm going to post some of my work, and may throw in some by my friends in the MSCA/MidSouth Cartoonists Association or some cool Star wars sketches I've picked up.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/bushitalesprintsm.jpg]

    First up are some sketches I did for my friend Shorty/Dominic.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/shortyhaircut.jpg]

    He's a big Star wars and Indiana Jones (and Short-Round) fan and loves art. His faves are Chewie, Han, Anakin, Obi-Wan, Stinky, Ahsoka, Indy, pretty much just the good guys- and girls.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/shortycgeorgelucas.jpg]

    I did some Indy sketches for him and gave them to him in San Diego.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/l_9509708dec772e083333170c4a8628e7.jpg]
    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/998988498306_0_BG.jpg]

    After that I started up a sketchbook for him as a get well and birthday present.

    Do these rock or what?! Can't thank everyone in the CGS community enough for the work they did in this sketchbook.

    Speaking of the CGS Super Show, here are a few I did for some of the folks there.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/IMG_0061.jpg]

    Here are a couple Star Wars sketches I did for "Radio Wayne" Cordova.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/r2d2kickballsm.jpg]

    He had an R2 themed sketchbook.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/2843746382_85f93dd9b0.jpg]

    Wayne was responsible for getting the 501st to the show.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/cgsss08/IMG_0064.jpg]

    Part of the CGS jam piece-

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/cgsss08/IMG_0378.jpg]

    Did this sketch card for CGS' Bryan Deemer- it's based on the "Puppet Bryans" that made an appearance there.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/cgsss08/IMG_0467.jpg]

    WW sketch card I did for the Wonder Woman Day art auction.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/cgsss08/IMG_0381.jpg]

    Here's a sketch I got from Kenny Durkin- for FREE!

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/cgsss08/IMG_0448.jpg]

    I bought a pin-up book and before I knew it Kenny had drawn this.

    This fall I started a sketchbook for my friend Traci's birthday.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/bdayfromlin.jpg]

    For my fangirl girlfriend Nicki, this Christmas I started her a sketchbook to take to conventions this year. I gave it to her on Christmas Eve, which was also Fangirl Wednesday when her Star Wars comics arrived at the local comic shop.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/IMG_5746.jpg]

    I decided to start it off with Darth Vader.

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/vaderbustsm.jpg]

    Here it is in color...

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/vaderbustcolsm.jpg]

    She also is a big Batgirl fan-

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/batgirlyvsm.jpg]

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/batgirlyv2greysm.jpg]

    60's Batgirl

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/batmancowlsm.jpg]

    Found a cool shot on-line of a DC Direct Batman bust and new it'd be fun to draw.

    More SW sketches...

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/tupperwaresm.jpg]

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/vadersabersm-1.jpg]

    And you can never sketch too many Vaders for her!

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/vadersabersidesm.jpg]

    Some MSCA friends added to it-

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/davebpadmesm.jpg]

    Here's her new prized possession- or "precious"...a Zayne sketch by KotOR artist Dean Zachary!

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/ZayneCommission-copy.jpg]

    Dean's another local artist- he and I worked together on Stargods back in the day. He was nice enough to do this favor for me and make my fangirl very happy!

    Here's Nicki's reaction to first seeing it...

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/nikcizaynesm.jpg]

    Priceless I tell ya!

    [image=http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w293/bushitales/nickitracezsm.jpg]

    Traci approves, too!

    Welcome to Fan Art, Dork-Vader!

    Would it be possible to change some of your images to links? I have a slower connection and I'm having issues viewing your art. Thanks! :)

    Sorry about that- how about I do that on the next ones I upload. It's already past my bedtime and I was just about to crash.I-)

    Would it make it easier for you if I only posted one or two sketches per update?

    Thanks,

    Yay! You finally decided to start a thread over here.

    I love my sketchbook. [face_love] I still can't believe that you drew half of those sketches with me sitting next to you on the couch, and I never realized that they were for me. :oops: [face_laugh]

    No worries! My connection seems to be cooperating today and it's now letting me see all your images. Great stuff! I'm sure 'Shorty' is one happy little kid right now as well. ;)

    I thought some of those images looked familiar! I was at the CGS this past fall and the pic of the TK firing at the cactus - that's me! :p

    Yep- I'm an art-ninja! Thanks for suggesting that I post over here. I've been on these boards for years now and didn't realize it was here! I'm having a blast checking out all the other fan-art here.

    Wow- small world! So I guess you get the Puppet Bryan's reference! ;)

    Yeah, I was set up next to Danielle and her cactus and Norton- right across from David Petersen. Had fun doing the SW sketches for Radio Wayne- the guy's a nut. He and Harold were cracking me up all weekend. Glad you and your 501st buds were able to make it out. PM me your email address and I'll send you a high res copy of that pic and any other 501st ones I have if you'd like.

    Glad you folks are diggin' my sketches. Here are a couple new sketch cards I did week before last to go in some Christmas cards for friends.

    Yeah, love that shot of Obi-Wan. The sketch I did in Shorty's sketchbook was the second drawing I've done using that photo as reference. The first one I did was a lot bigger and had more of his cloak and robes showing. It was a bit more rendered, too- using blending stumps and different leads. Didn't get a good scan or shot of it before I gave it away. I started on it for a friend just before I went to another friend's party and finished it there for them. Gone to Seattle now.

    The Obi-Wan pic would be a good one for you to airbrush. After my Vader portrait, of course. :p

    I know you're planning on airbrushing the Villains/Monster series next in your non-existent free time, but you might want to consider airbrushing a Heroes series after that. We know someone who'd find room in her house for a Luke portrait. ;)

    Now I can see them.

    *[:D] her Dutch husband for all the security up-dates and such*

    Okay, now we must leave the internet, otherwise my parents sulk even more that we are NOT really present in the living-room...

    But thanks for your recent up-dates. This helped me to survive a TV evening with André Rieu, Roger Whittaker and Co.! And it even made me smily!

    Thanks!

    Bedankt!

    Merci!

    Dankeschön!

    Go raibh mile maith agat!

    (Can not think of the Polish way to say thank you!)

    Cool pictures and photos. I enjoyed them all.

    Let me just say you have some amazing talent.

    Also one of the best thread names on this board. I love "sketchy details" it's a nicely worked pun.

    I noticed Katie is from Ann Arbor.
    I've now bookmarked her site to go back and look at more later...
