    Hahaha, attitude indeed! [face_laugh] I know it's a Natalie portrait and not necessarily a Padme portrait, but after LittleMissNightsaber's comment, the left side portrait is definitely transforming into a warrior-Jedi-type Padme expression for me. [face_laugh] 8-}

    Gorgeous, as always, Iverna! =D=

    Oh my gosh! I'm just blown away by your work!
    The figures, your use of light and shadow, the way you capture your subject's personality: it's all excellent! I feel like I'm looking at a real person. :D

    I really like Natalie Portman and think she's a great actress. Your portrait of her has captured not just her looks, but also her sweet and bubbly personality. :)

    Great work, I'll certainly be watching this thread! ;)

    very lovely as always, like a photograoph ^^
    I think your different shading has worked well. I can see the more tough look in her eyes.
    Personally I liked Natalie with long hair, but it doesn't mean I like your drawing any less ^___^

    Nightsaber - haha, she does look like a Dark Sider here, doesn't she? I hadn't thought of that. But you're right! And she does look cute.

    Idrelle - well, I posted it here because of the Padmé connection, so I guess it kind of makes sense? [face_thinking] Thank you very much!

    Caine - that's so nice of you, thank you so much! I'm a Natalie fan myself so I really tried to get this one right - I'm glad you think it works! [:D]

    Azure - you are too kind, my dear. Thank you! [:D]

    Kikichan - thank you! Glad the toughness is showing. *g* And honestly, I have yet to see a hairstyle that Natalie can't pull off, she's just stunning.


    Thanks for looking, everyone - more to come very very soon!

    I've always loved this shot of Han and Leia on Cloud City - he looking caught in the act, she not quite able to be stern and admonishing. So, here's my rendition:

    Interrupted (Han and Leia on Cloud City)

    It's pencils on watercolour paper - not very detailed, but it does have a really interesting texture. And I like how the tones came out in this one. I hope you guys like it too!

    This is divine. The softness of it, the indeed brilliant texture...

    Wow!

    Yay! More Han and Leia!

    I love it! This particular shot captures them so well and who can resist those playful expressions! [face_mischief]

    earlybird-obi-wan - thank you! It was a lot of fun.

    spycoder - oooh, well, thanks so much for coming out of lurkdom and leaving a comment! [:D] I'm glad you like it!

    Serena - yes! I really wanted to capture that on paper. She has the most adorable patient-exasperated look on her face in that picture... [face_love]

    Azure - thanks very much, that's very kind of you! Your comments always put a smile on my face! [:D]

    HanSolo - I don't think I'll ever get tired of drawing them! [face_blush] I'm glad you like this, thank you very much! I love the reference pic for this one, it just begged to be drawn!


    As always, thanks for looking! And sorry for being so erratic with posts - I'm currently trying to get my MA thesis ready for May, so I'm busy. I'm working on a new drawing, though, so (hopefully) coming up... Kyp and Jaina!

    Bwahahahahaha you have been converted to the Kyp side of the Force!

    ... I mean, amazing work, really looking forward to seeing more.

    Anakin from the cover of Conquest is my favorite. I liked him a lot in that book too. :(

    The Jaina/Jacen/Anakin collage left me breathless. And the screencap of Leia and Han from ESB just made my day.

    Haha, yeah, maybe a bit... Kyp is awesome!

    Thanks for dropping by! [:D] I love Anakin in Conquest... Greg Keyes wrote him and Tahiri really well, I thought. Oh, I miss that boy. But, I'm glad you like my drawings, thank you!


    I finished the new drawing a bit sooner than I'd intended, it was just really hard to put this one down. And so, here's Kyp and Jaina, ready for battle!

    Kyp and Jaina - full view

    The reason Jaina's got a rifle rather than a lightsaber is a) why not, and b) because this was inspired by Lady_Tahiri's very promising fic where Jaina is not Force-sensitive. This drawing went through a lot of changes, but I'm happy with how it came out. I'm hoping to put together a tutorial based on it, where you'll be able to see the process etc... I'll share that on here too, if anyone's interested! In the meantime, enjoy! [face_peace]

    Perfect. The blaster rifle was a nice touch. She looks so young! Which is as it should be because I really liked her when she was young. Not that I don't like her when she's older, it's just she accumulates so much baggage and it makes me sad.

    I kind of vaguely recall a Japanese NJO cover that could roughly correspond to the Kyp you have here, but I don't think I've ever seen that Jaina. Did you draw her from scratch or did you use a cover that I don't know about for a model?

    Thank you for saying that my fic looks promising, and THANK YOU for drawing this - I love it.

    Great=D= a beautiful drawing and I like to see the progress of making this.

    It is always nice to see a work in progress from the initial drawing to the finished piece of art.

    Lady_Tahiri - I know what you mean! Young!Jaina was a lot happier. I wish she could've avoided at least SOME of the horrible stuff that happened to her! But, thank you!

    I used a few references for Jaina. The main one was actually my own drawing of her that I did ages ago, which was based on the Japanese cover of "The Joiner King".

    Aaaand, you're welcome! [:D]

    earlybird-obi-wan - thank you! I'll throw up a progress thing once I get around to editing it all together, then. I always like seeing others' progress, too, but I'm never sure if people want to see mine!

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

    Great expressions!

    And thank you for depicting a Kyp that doesn't look like he's half-crazy! :p

    Stunning work, Iverna! FINALLY someone has produced a Kyp and Jaina piece! That makes the K/J fangirl in me quite happy, it's been a while since I've seen one. :p [face_laugh] Love the poses and the expressions. They look like they're ready to jump into some serious action.

    This piece also sending me to go check out Lady_Tahiri's fanfic, since my curiosity has been piqued and I really want to go see what it's all about. :D

    =D=

    P.S. I'm totally up for seeing that tutorial you've mentioned. I think the art-creating process is phenomenally cool; I love looking at tutorials, even though I can't draw to save my life myself. :p

    And thank you for depicting a Kyp that doesn't look like he's half-crazy!

    Oh, but half-crazy Kyp is awesome. :cool: [face_laugh]

    HanSolo - glad you like 'em! And haha, that's so true, he does seem to sport the crazy look a lot! I don't know if I could manage a crazy expression, though, so it's just as well!

    Idrelle - yeah, I have no idea why I didn't draw them before now. I'm not a K/J shipper really, but I do like them together. Especially when there's a firefight involved!

    And yes, check it out, it's definitely well-worth it!

    The tutorial is up in the air right now, awaiting a time when I have, well, more time. *lol* But I'll post it here when I get it done!

    Azure - might be a while, but thank you! Life is a bit hectic right now. I want to draw, I'm brimming with ideas, but I don't have the time... argh! But I'll draw more eventually. Hopefully sooner rather than later. [:D]
