    Thanks I'm glad you all liked the Leia. I'll try to work on some more
    drawings. But I'll keep mixing it up with some Quick Sketch and
    refined cartoons with some realistic drawings thrown in.

    So here's some sketches of Ben

    I think Hermi Odle so cool. So I did a refined cartoon.
    I like most of jabba's and cantina aliens especially the ones
    that where in the movie for seconds. So I hope you enjoy them,
    I hope to do more of Jabba's men.

    Hey ART2-D2,

    I love your art! It's so expressive and unique :D
    I like your cartoons best, but my favourite has to be R2-D2 in your first post - it's a really interesting angle, and you've managed to bring out his playful personality :)

    Your pencil drawings are also stunning - you seem to be talented in a variety of styles.

    Keep it up!

    ACH!! =D==D= Ugnaught w/ 3PO's head= "Alas, poor Yorik!" =D= Beautiful capture of that fractional moment in the film--wonderful drapery, most excellent shading on 3PO's metal head, and a great job with the ugnaught's wrinkly countenance, too! The battle droid looks fabulous--and cartoony Luke gave me an instant giggle! Wonderful caricature there! =D= Your talents know no bounds, yes? :D

    Does anyone else have this problem? Where you have so much design/art concepts going on in your head[face_idea] .
    That you don't know what to work on next[face_frustrated] . My attention span 8-} isn't where it should be either. So I have a big pile
    of odds & ends to get done, like inked up, or refined and plenty of what I call doodles. And time is always the enemy.
    So how does everyone else handle this?
    Later

    Hope you enjoy the new stuff!

    Glitbiter:
    Thanks, Glad you like the cartoons. I enjoy doing odd perspective drawings like R2.
    Hopefully I'll get some time to finish a couple rough prespective drawings that I have started.

    FalconFan:
    Glad you like them I especially like doing the ugnaught I love a challenge especially in pencil.
    Cartoons are still my favorite style. Also trying to get the hang of adobe for coloring.
    But I still like black and white. Thanks again

    I had a little giggle and a long nod when I read your "dilemma," about having "too much of a good thing...?" That's actually a great problem for an artist to have--lots and lots of inspiration and ideas--the biggest stumble to it, then, is arranging the time! lol! What I like to do when that happens is to just let the muse decide: I work on whatever piece most appeals to me first, and let the others "percolate" a little more (or until the next seizure by the muse!). I've found, even when I have commitments (like requests), working that way tends to keep the creative "juices" flowing, rather than forcing myself to work on something that doesn't "strike me." The work all gets done, sometimes a bit at a time--but I'm continually inspired all the while. I guess, when one is working professionally, discipline about doing something that isn't necessarily inspired from within is key--but for the stuff I do for myself, that method seems to work pretty well, and keeps me interested! ;) I loved seeing these new pieces: I just watched ROTJ again the other night and caught glimpses of those bottom two (just for a few seconds each!), and LOL if I wasn't wondering who in our forum would eventually draw them?! ;) [face_laugh] And here they are!! =D= Love them all! :D

    Hey ART2-D2, long time no comment! I really like these new works you've been doing! And I still haven't a clue how you've trained your hands so well to be able to create these wonderful things so quickly:eek: And you beat me to quiet a few backgrounders, and I am glad you did with the amount of justice and well rendering, bravo! Especially on the Ugnaught;)

    FalconFan :
    Thanks I'm glad you liked the new drawings. I love the people/droids/creatures that only get seconds on the screen.
    It's a shame because I bet some of those costums cost bucks & time. The only problem is It makes it tough to find photos
    and theres alot of guess work.
    Also Thanks I like your concept/view of working on art. I'll have to give it a whirl.

    Mitth Fisto:Greetings, Glad you like them especially the Ugnaught. It's all in the wrist. No... I've always been pretty fast with a pencil but I used to draw constantly. Would rather draw then do my homework. Thanks!

    Hey, these are great ART2! The one with the skulls is both cool and freaky, though my favourite is the last one - you've given him such a great character! Is this caricature?

    Great job! :D

    Squee!!! Another handsome pic of our favorite "rogue smuggler!" =D= I love it--perfect likeness, and the lines and shadows are awesome! Shaak Ti is just lovely--her expression is so sweet--warm and open and emphasizing her beauty! And GONK!! I LOVE that little droid! He has a great "closet" following, I think--we all tend to jump in and "gush" whenever someone draws him! Such a short time on-screen, but so endearing! And Jabba's little minion looks great, too! Love them all--terrific stuff (and I hope the flood of inspiration continues for you! ;) )! :D

    FalconFan: Thanks glad you like the Han didn't know how it would come out. The gonk droid was fun. As well as Shaak Ti I hopr to add some color. I was trying to give her an elegant look. I hope I still can find the time to finish more.

    Here's one that I got signed by Kenny Baker about a month ago. I was so glad to get
    my art signed. I've alway been a big fan of Kenny Baker as Artoo & Fidget (Time Bandits)
    Hope he's doing better since he was hospitalized.

    It's been a while. Some new quick cartoony sketches. Haven't had much time to do any realistic drawings.

    Salacious crumb looked cute, and I love the chewie and the jawa's.

    I think all of your sketches are great. The Dark Trooper is my favourite of your most recent batch, nice figure construction, excellent dynamic perspective.

    Oooo! How wonderful you got Kenny Baker's autograph on your piece!! =D= I'm sure that's a definite "keeper" for you now! ;) And I love the newest pieces, too ("kid version" Chewie rocks!)! R2 looks awesome, in both pieces--so much detail!--Maul is appropriately intimidating; the trooper and Jabba have such a great "flow" to them (I think it's your most excellent lines...)! You really should be doing collector cards, my friend! Wonderful work!
