    Wow Falconfan, I especially love the ESB Leia piece her eyes just draw us in. And your work has a very soft feel to it. You say you're outclassed in your profile but I think it's the other way around. =D=

    Wow, that is amazing. That is WAY better than any depiction I've seen of her before. The rendering of the hair and face is just beautiful. Wonderful! =D=

    Aww, had to completely throw the Han drawing out? Well, I'm just as bad. :p The one you see posted in the Challenge thread is not the one I started out on. My original one that I messed up did end up in the trash. I started with a new pose/reference pic the next night and it finally ended up how I wanted it. ;) Hope you can get around to that Han eventually. ;)

    If you want to know more about this icon, go over to JC Communications, and go to the icon thread and ask.

    CeiranHarmony, I figured you'd be the first to check out TK! Thanks again for your suggestions on her attire--I think it sort of makes the "royal" aspect of the portrait! The scaled armor took a long time to shade, but I think it was worth the effort! :p As to the "full-body"--you may have seen my comment earlier in the thread about my difficulties with rendering bodies well (thus, the stubborn avoidance of doing them at all! ;) )--perhaps some other time!

    soits--hello again! You always drop in to comment, and I appreciate it very much! Thanks! [face_blush]

    Ty_Ordell--I still mean what I said in the profile, as it's the honest truth! There is soooo much talent here in the Art Forum, it still blows me away every time I browse thru--in every different medium, and countless styles. Thank you very much for your kind comments, tho! [face_blush]

    And thank you, HanSolo29--CeiranHarmony was the "appearance and wardrobe consultant" on the Tenel Ka portrait (I have "buried" my books, and didn't have them to refer to! :p )--the suggestions went a long way! As to Han...yeah... I had begun to "scrub" through the paper again, trying to "fix" it, so had to bag it and start over! The current one looks better (not good, but better), so I may actually get it submitted for the Challenge! :D

    ThrawnRocks--thanks for visiting, and for your "kudos!" I appreciate it a lot! BTW, I like that icon, too! :D

    The droideka is floundering along (and I say again: AAAAARRRGH!!)--I'm taking a hack at shading it--but man-oh-man....it's killing me!! Hopefully, I'll be able to finish it by Tuesday! Thanks, everyone, for taking a look--I appreciate it a lot! [face_blush]

    Falcon, your work is flippin' amazing! Great stuff, I enjoyed looking at them. Very well done and pleasing to the eye. :D

    Keep it coming my friend. :) Perhaps I'll request something in the future. ;) (even if you don't do it :p )

    No new portraits, but here are the "renditions" of the droideka that was part of the assignment for class, over in the Art Class thread (curse droidekas!!! :mad: ). I now know why I don't do more of this sort of thing! :p

    Darth_Elu, thank you for your kind words! [face_blush] I love "giving faces" to some of the EU characters I've read about, but rarely seen (outside of the normally fabulous book covers...)--and the likenesses are exercises in accuracy (which sometimes miss the mark! :p )--but it's all fun, and it's great to hear from others who appreciate the efforts! Suggestions/requests are welcome (though, as you pre-emptively observed, they might wait a while, depending on what else is going! :D )! Thanks for stopping by, tho--I appreciate very much! [face_blush]

    The latest: a picture of Han, for the Fan Art Challenge thread--from ANH, when they all hear the growling down in the trash masher:

    "It's worse..."

    [image=http://img56.exs.cx/img56/3215/itsworse2vq.jpg]

    My first attempt at adding a "background" to a portrait (made easier by the actual existence of a background in the reference photo! :p )! The likeness isn't as good as I wanted, but it's close!

    hey I like your Han, though he looks like in his younger years when he trained and served as a trooper, before joining the navy officers, shorty before saving chewies life.

    and if ever you mess up with a Han picture (what I know you can´t do, because you are a master artist!) , put a beard over his face and call him Thrackhan sal solo :p

    Geez, an excellent first attempt at backgrounds! I really like this piece. The black/white really does well to play against the armor and "organics" of Han's face.

    Like I said in the Challenge thread, excellent job!

    And I knew you mentioned backgrounds somewhere. I thought it was in the other thread, but it was here. Now I feel stupid. :p

    Anyway, I agree with what Cheveyo said. The background really gives the drawing another dimension. I love it! :D

    Gosh--thanks everyone! [face_blush] I didn't think this one was very good--so thanks!

    CeiranHarmony--thanks for visiting again--I agree, the likeness lacks some of Han's "maturity" from ANH, but nah--we won't make him Thracken! :)

    Cheveyo--yeah--I realize the "benefit" of the background--the primary reason I've never done them is *cough* laziness! It's hard to add in a background! But I'm glad I took a crack at it at last! Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

    HS29--don't feel "stupid!" :D I do that all the time! ;) Thanks for the comments, Mme. Moderator--I always look forward to hearing from you!

    LuvEwan--I appreciate you taking a look here--I am so loving your work over in your thread--very, very nice! :D

    Got my drawings done for the most recent Art Class assignment, and wanted to drop them in here, as well. Also posting the Fan Art Challenge "Valentine" entry, after realizing it never made it into my own thread! ;p

    Han and Leia (from the Fan Art Challenge):

    Han and Chewbacca (for Art Class):

    Ceiran--the visitors to my thread aren't "mine" for you to "steal!" ;) But I hope you get some visitors/comments of your own!

    Like I mentioned over in the Fan Art Class thread, excellent, excellent work! I do truly believe this is you at your best. The liknesses are uncanny and the shading and details wonderful! It really comes across as a photograph! :)

    *bows humbly* Thank you, HS29--I so appreciate your visits and comments. They mean a great deal to me! I want to say again how much the Art Class is helping me to expand my skills, and to thank you for the "challenges" you present to us all. As gatodama so perfectly observed: "There's always room for improvement!" ;)

    All I can say is Wowie Zowie!!

    You seem to just whip these things off!? Every time I turn around you have another piece up and yet they look like they took you hours. Super-Duper, great job FalconFan !!

    I still want to see a color piece though. It doesn't have to be anything elaborate, just an Endor battle scene painting or something, nothing too big. ;)

    Thank you, Ty, for your kind comments! Just visited your murals--Geez-Looeez! Love those! As to "whipping this stuff out:" I wish! These all take days and days to complete (a few hours here, a few hours there)--especially when doing Wookiee fur! :p I actually put in a lot of time on each one (including having to "walk away" for a while, erasing and redoing...tearing my hair out! ;) ). About the "color..." *feet scuffing at ground* ...we'll see! [face_laugh]

    Your drawings are truly amazing FalconFan!! :D
    The likenesses you get are really good, something I need to work on, and I perticularly love that Han and Chewie one. The expressions on their faces and the fur on Chewbacca in particular are amazing, your shading style is very intresting! lovin' it, keep it coming!!!
    ;)

    I agree with Esira, the Han and Chewie pic is my favourite. There is something about the way you've rendered Han's eyes that make them the focal point for the drawing. But then I always like the way you draw the eyes in your pictures.
