    Hey everyone, just joined up here and thought I'd start by making a quick thread to introduce myself to dip my toes in the water as it were.

    My name's Andy, I've been a huge star wars fan since I was 11 (Now a slightly older 26 year old version of that 11 year old) when I picked up the Special edition VHS tapes when I was round a random sleep over back in the day having never seen anything star wars before and since then I've been hooked.

    bit creative on the side so thought i'd post up a few art pieces too, so long as that's cool with everyone

    obiw-Andyz: Failte Nua Duine. Welcome to to the boreds. Sorry it took so long for a response. Holiday-lag, I assume. I was personally absent a few days to travelling Belfast for Christmas. That art is rather phenomenal. I really appreciate the stylization, but the actual line work is impressive considering the fluidity of the style. I work in illustration as a vocation, so that's why I am being semi-nerdish in my description. solid, solid work, with an interesting eye. I'm a fan.

    Hey Bazinga'd yeah go for it, that's fine!

    A Chorus of Disapproval I do use a tablet, I actually use a cintiq but I used to have a bamboo tablet too. Yeah you can't beat drawing with the good old fashioned pencil sometimes, haha.
