    You guys! I totally should be working on my thesis. So I decided that now is the perfect time to learn digital painting and complete my first one ever. D'you ever get that feeling of a picture/story just bursting to get out? That's what happened here. I couldn't concentrate on anything else. I swear it's somehow relevant to my research... *lol*

    Anyway, here it is:

    [link=http://svenjaliv.deviantart.com/art/Jaina-and-Jacen-161395299]Jaina and Jacen, in colour![/link]

    I sketched it on paper, took a photo, and then painted over that in Photoshop. I'm really happy with how it came out, especially the expressions; I've never managed anything semi-decent digitally before! You can see a [link=http://svenjaliv.deviantart.com/art/Jaina-and-Jacen-details-161396938]closeup of their faces here[/link].

    Thanks for looking, hope you like the twins, and... here's hoping I can get back to work now![face_peace]

    Thank you very much, earlybird - glad you like it! [:D]


    I have a new piece to share, too. The Solo twins again, a few years earlier, and this time together with their Dad and little brother:

    [link=http://svenjaliv.deviantart.com/art/Story-Time-163353645]"Story Time" - Han with Jaina, Jacen and Anakin[/link]

    This was fun - I made up all the poses and faces (well except for Han's) so it was a challenge, but rewarding! I'd love to know what you guys think.

    I clicked on the link and was like hmmm, why do I feel like I've seen this before. (Duh, because I have.) It's just as sweet the second time as the first though!

    Jacen's eyes are mesmerizing btw. I don't think I clicked to enlarge the picture on LJ so I didn't notice, but wow, now that I look at them closely. [face_love] The shape of Jaina's eyes is almost identical to Jacen's, and yet. And yet. There's something about Jacen.

    Azure - thank you kindly, my dear! [:D]

    LittleMissNightsaber - well, they wrote about it often enough, so I figured a drawing was in order! Glad you like it!

    LT - *lol* Thank you! Especially for commenting again. [:D] Hmm, Jacen's eyes... maybe it's because he's smiling more? He does look slightly different than Jaina. I had trouble with Jaina for some reason. But, it's pretty awesome that you find them mesmerising, thank you!


    Okay, lads and lassies, I know it's been a while, but there's an update to make up for it! Firstly, another Han and Leia piece which I think I already linked to in another thread. You probably know the scene this is taken from, which I've already illustrated to death but what the heck, you can never have too much H/L, right? This time, in charcoal and a bit of colour, so the title also says what I had when I was done:

    [link=http://svenjaliv.deviantart.com/art/Dirty-Hands-166080211]"Dirty Hands"[/link]

    And, I didn't mean to draw Anakin and Tahiri, but then the guy I was trying to draw looked so much like Anakin that I went with it. So here's the new drawing - Anakin Solo and Tahiri Veila, collage-style:

    [link=http://svenjaliv.deviantart.com/art/The-Sum-Of-Their-Parts-169433356]"The Sum Of Their Parts"[/link]

    I'm going to crop some details out of the larger version and post them up, as well, in case people are interested in seeing those. I'll link to them in the artist's comment section of the picture on deviantART, and I'll throw the links up here when I get the chance as well. Meanwhile - enjoy, and thanks for looking!

    Hey, there! It's been a while since I've checked into this thread, but your work is still as lovely as I remember it! I really love "Dirty Hands." Just awesome stuff. Thanks for sharing both of them! :)

    earlybird-obi-wan - thank you kindly! I love A/T, so it was high time I drew them. I'm glad you like them!

    Trika_Kenobi - hey, thanks for dropping by again! I'm thrilled that you like these recent pieces. Thank you for the kind words!

    YodaKenobi - thank you so much, that's great to hear. H/L is still my favourite couple to draw, I never seem to get enough of them.


    Thanks for looking, everyone! [:D]

    (AzureAngel2 in disguise, wearing her update sock)

    I know and so is blue as well. But all of us are very busy and face hard challenges in life.

    *is happy to have the bird and Lanna as good friends in RL*

    So, good luck with all and enjoy the fact that you won the recent fanart challenge. May all your current RL challenges disolve that nice & pretty, too.

    [:D]

    Thank you, dear Azure! Life has calmed down quite a lot now so I've had time for art again!


    Okay, so this time I've got something a little bit different. I wanted to try my hand at comics, so I picked a scene from "Rebel Dream" by Aaron Allston to illustrate. It's the one where Jag confronts Jaina in the conference room after she saved his life against Wedge's direct order. I did two pages:

    [link=http://svenjaliv.deviantart.com/art/Rebel-Dream-comic-1-of-2-170310979]"Rebel Dream" comic page 1[/link]
    [link=http://svenjaliv.deviantart.com/art/Rebel-Dream-comic-2-of-2-177392027]"Rebel Dream" comic page 2[/link]

    Comics are fun to draw! I hope you like the results.

    That is really cool! Nicely done! :)

    I'm not too familiar with all the inner workings of creating any type of sequential art and I always found it difficult to decide how to setup each page. How do you determine the look of each section and where do you know where to place them? This is probably a better question suited for the comics thread, but I was curious to hear your take on it.

    Loved how you made that comic with the black and white giving it a look seen in the newspapers. And a great story too.

    HanSolo29 - thank you very much! I've posted over in the Comics thread and tried to answer your question there, since you pointed it you; it does make more sense to discuss it there, I think! I hope I've answered your question; if not, let me know and I'll try again!

    earlybird-obi-wan - thanks! Hmm, it does look a bit newspaper-y. Especially with the paper I used, although I guess you can't see that since I messed with the contrast. In any case, thank you!

    I use A4 paper that has to be removed from the archive material for my graphic novels and that gives them a newspaper ish look too.;)

    Another update! I know, pretty soon after the last one, but since it kind of follows on from it, I guess that's okay. Right? Anyway, it's Jagged and Jaina again - it took me a while to get this finished. There's no explicit nudity, but it features J/J in bed together, so if you're sensitive about that kind of thing, don't look. Otherwise, here it is:

    [link=http://svenjaliv.deviantart.com/art/Carried-Away-Jag-and-Jaina-178137690]"Carried Away" - Jagged and Jaina[/link]

    Less detailed than usual, but quite fun to draw. I like textured, tonal drawings more and more these days. I hope you like it!
