    I don't think this is fan art, more me playing with photoshop but I had an idea for something I wanted to try and after scouring the net for a pic I settled on this one:

    [image=http://i216.photobucket.com/albums/cc70/Geektechboy/ANH-Ben_Kenobi-05919-1600.jpg]

    Then proceeded to cut out obiwan and then using the pen tool to trace sections over him and fill them with colour until I got this:

    [image=http://i216.photobucket.com/albums/cc70/Geektechboy/ANH-Ben_Kenobicopy.png]

    Now I'm quite happy with all of this except his mouth, beard and eye, I don't think they look quite right especially the mouth.

    So if anyone has got any suggestions I'd love to hear them. Each shape is on its own layer so I can change any part of it.

    Also this was me playing about with this photoshop tutorial.

    The stormtrooper mask I got off the net, and the text is from wookipedia,
    so I cant claim credit for it but it looks ok.

    So any suggestions on Obi's giant lips would be much appreciated:)

    I know about the lip problem when I paint stuff with acrylic paint or water colours. But actually I do not consider Obi´s lips as too big. Due to their soft pink colour they blend in nicely with the rest of his face. [face_love]

    As for the stormtropper helmet: great stuff! Reminds me of the various painted Vader masks that I saw during the SW exhibition in Brussels/ Belgium last summer with my Dutch husband and members of the GFFG. :D

    Great work. I think Ben's lips look big because of his upper lip. Without shading, the flattened color of his upper lip makes it look bigger than it really is, maybe? If you're not happy without, one suggestion might be to modify the upper lip so that it implies the small size it really is.

    Hi there, I_AM_GEEK, and welcome to Fan Art! PS is a perfectly acceptable medium here--lots of our members use it--so of course it qualifies as fan art! As to helping you out with PS...I'm a stuffy old graphite jockey who refuses to try new things (like PS!) so I can't help you out there; Cheveyo, one of our premier artists here, has some great suggestions that I won't repeat (he's awesome--check out his art thread here in the forum!).
    We'll look forward to seeing your Obi Wan piece progress--thanks for sharing it, and again--welcome! :D

    I don't know which one I will submit so I thought I'd post it here first before I decide.

    Heres the final version my Darth Sion pic for the Villains challenge.

    I've been working on another pic that is a bit Work in Progress at the moment but I might post it
    for some comments soon.

    Here's a couple of things I've been playing about with.

    I tend to look through photoshop tutorial sites until I see something that interests me then I decide on a star wars theme.

    I uploaded Han with and without the halftone effect as I quite like both.

    Han and Leia are great, but I like the gloomy touch the Darth Sion one.

    :D

    I thought I'd put it on here for a few comments and suggestions.

    If you like it feel free to use it.

    Thanks, the font is Floyd from here, based on Pink Floyd's logo.

    I chose it because I liked it and it wasn't immediately obvious where it was from.

    Wow, I missed a lot since I checked here last time.

    I like your Leia experiments a big deal. And the Padmé wallpaper.

    Since Darth Real Life has sucked up most of my free time recently I have not had much time to do any photophop stuff, so heres a bunch of Work In Progress pics that are in various states. Some are nearly finished others are not so finished.

    These are OC characters from a fanfic that I decided to start, as I wanted to give writing a go. It remains about 1/4 finished and I think I spent longer on these pics that writing the story. The first is pretty much done, the others still have a lot to do on them.

    Last Thing a Droid Sees. Needs more stuff in the background that I will probably never get round to adding in.

    A jolly good birthday present!

    And also a jolly good way using it!

    =D=

    I like the Vader the most, being ´caught in the act´.
