    Unfortunately for me, no. I live on the east coast and I just don't have the funds to afford plane tickets to LA by myself.

    Now, if they would ever hold this thing on the EAST COAST! [face_frustrated]

    AH! =D= That looks great, BIEREN! **laughing and nodding** It so reminds me of a 60s album cover, with the bandmembers' faces all in a row or on an angle--the black and white is perfect, too--it really emphasizes the severe shadowing on the face(s). Wonderful! :D

    Oh WOW! That looks fantastic! =D= I love that you used the more muted colors here--so often the Coruscant b/g is done in the warm glowing colors, like we saw in the films. This is much more suited to the portrait of Vader, showing an almost sullen-looking sky behind him, and only that blood-colored blade as counterpoint--beautiful composition and mood! =D= I'm sure Prowse will love this--it's wonderful!--and I hope you have a great time there! You'll have to tell us all about it when you get back (take pictures! :D )!

    Falcon and CucumberBoy, thanks for your comments, I have actually gone back and added to the vader painting and will be re-posting it, along with an Admiral Ackbar painting, later this week, with a few more sometime after that.

    Wow, I just saw all your drawings, and they all look excellent.

    The detailed ones are amazing, and the humoristic ones are hilarious!

    Very well done, man. =D=

    This is my 3rd painting for CIV: "Admiral Ackbar". I wanted to do a painting that was reminisent of the old War General pictures one may see at the White house or some place.

    I have also updated the "Vader on Coruscant" painting,

    Waw, your paintings look great! *_* It took a long time to paint, I think? I love the details, they look just like in the movies. Very good job! ^^ (I like the traditional touch that the paper gives to the picture)

    AAACK!! :eek:=D==D=

    What an amazing painting of Admiral Ackbar!! =D= That's just gorgeous, BIEREN! You've certainly achieved that "official commissioned painting" thing with it, that's for sure: the light is stunning, the likeness is dead-on and the realism is fantastic! I love the soft fade of the light from near his head to the darker smoky-type tones near his elbows--very nice touch, and really adds to that "official feel!" Amazing!

    "Vader on Coruscant" is one I loved from the start--that hasn't changed! ;) That sky...just so perfect! The lightsaber glow on his armor and glove are just right--not too much, just enough--and the patterns of ships in the sky behind him definitely put this down on Coruscant. A wonderful piece (and it would be so cool if David Prowse could see this!)!

    Thank you Falcon, I think the Vader Painting looks better now too. I seem to notice things after I put them on my computer here at work that I didn't see in the images earlier. I can see detail (and the lack of detail) much clearer on this screen, which is 36".

    Oh wow, BIEREN, your oil paintings are simply amazing! I agree with FF that they definitely exhibit a professional quality - especially the Admiral Ackbar piece. That one really turned out gorgeous! The brushwork, the rendering, everything turned out perfectly! I'm sure these paintings will be a big hit at CIV. Good luck with getting them signed and I hope you do more! :D

    OMG! :eek: Did you use any references for Admiral Ackbar? He looks perfect! [face_love] =D= Absolutely stunning!

    And Vader is awesome! My computer didn't want to load it at first, but I forced him to. (yes, it's a "him") [face_devil]
    I'm glad I did! It's great! I love the details, esp the helmet is great and those little white light reflections in his eyes! [face_love] =D=
    Beautiful! =D=
