    :eek: Lucky lady - that is some serious sweetness. Nice graphic feeling to it with the crisp highlights and the overall Black/White balance, and I love the nice Palpy reflected in the eye and the detailed metallic knobs.

    Thanks- both of you.

    I've been having fun with doing just the black/white stuff lately. This kinda lent to it feeling a bit more like a horror movie. I did it on a 3'x2' canvas so it would fit in Nicki's fangirl room and not take up too much space, but that only made the lens a few inches wide. Luckily my brush, compressor, and the weather cooperated with me so I could get Palpatine reflected in the lens! I haven't painted an area that small since I used to airbrush license plates at the mall years ago.

    Still, it was a fun piece to do- and the look on Nicki's face when she saw it was priceless. :)

    It is great to make people happy that way, isn´t?

    :D

    You also make me happy by posting here. The last paintings are gorgeous. I especially like the one of Vincent Prince.

    The show went great! I've got lots of pics on [link=http://www.linworkman.com]my site[/link].

    Had Jerry Lawler, Dean Zachary (penciller on SW:KOTOR) and Jim Hall (penciller on X-Wing Rogue Squadron and the upcoming Purge one-shot comic) attend.

    Hey gang-

    Sorry to be so M.I.A. lately but it's been a crazy couple months- cons, sick pets, day job, and more. I have been drawing a lot, I just couldn't post what I was working on until I got them approved first.

    Well, I got approval!

    I'm doing sketch cards for Topps' new The Empire Stikes Back 3D widescreen card set which celebrates the 30th anniversary of TESB's release. The cards ship in May and you can find out more at- http://www.topps.com/ent/brands/Empire3DWeb/ESB3D30_Webpage.html

    I'm about half way through my cards and I'll post more as I get them approved. I'm using Copic and Prismacolor markers,Copic and acrylic white, and disposable tech pens on most, and I pencil them out first. I'll probably try doing more all pencil ones this next week.

    Hope you dig them!

    MTFBWYA!

    Thanks!

    It's funny, some people who have seen these in person asked me, "So, how big are the originals?" or "Are you doing the originals 4(x)up and they scan them or what?" and I have to tell them, "These are the originals." ;)

    Thanks- it's a lot of fun.

    Speaking of fun, it was really hard not to put a bow-tie on this one...

    [image=http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g210/linworkman/sketchcards/adm_ozzel300dpi450.jpg]

    Michael Sheard came here to Memphis for Midsouthcon for several years in a row before he passed away a few years ago. Never saw him without his bow-tie, except for when he took one off for the charity auction or after the closing ceremonies.
