    You need to modify those imageshack codes if the links are going to show up here :p

    But, the cards are just gorgeous! Such depth in the coloring. I *love* these!

    Oh, these are all gorgeous!! =D= I really like them all, but the ones that stand out to me most are Boromir, Arwen, Pippen, Sam and Gandolf--Arwen's purple hood is soooo pretty, and a perfect compliment for her lovely face. I am in awe (always!) of your colors and highlights--it just doesn't seem like it should be possible to achieve such subtle and rich coloring with watercolors--just amazing! And I am in a dither, waiting for the next installments of SW pieces! :D **tries to be patient...fails miserably** ;)

    Finally a Star Wars image - Padme Amidala. This is a 4 x 6 image, a lttle bit bigger than usual...if I had more time, I might work it a bit more....but maybe that wouldn't be a good thing, I tend to destroy things when I don't quit![face_laugh]

    I agree with Chilla. I love the dress too, and the flow of colors.

    I would soooo love to see these in a bigger format (...I know they're small pieces--I just want to see them bigger, lol!)! Padme is just gorgeous: ethereal, just as she was in all the Lake Retreat scenes...fragile, beautiful, vulnerable... This is wonderful!

    Lovely sketch cards! Don't worry if a bunch of them are LOTR, cos I like them anyway.

    Been busy lately, here are a couple of my latest - I just did a Luke Skywalker card, but it won't show in my imageshack, so I'll post it tomorrow... (well, the regular code is posted, but I'll put the proper code tomorrow...:) )

    These are, as always, great! Your shading is incredible, especially with the Luke one I think, I really like the colors on him... he's not an easy person to get down just right. :)

    Oh, I completely agree: Luke is exceedingly tough to get a good likeness for--another artist made the observation that Mark Hamill never looks the same in any given photograph--something I totally understand and commiserate with! lol! But your likeness is wonderful, jedipencil--and I'm loving the LOTR pieces, too (the second Aragorn portrait turned me into jello... ;) =P~ )! But really--my all-time fav of these simply has to be Puss-In-Boots!! =D= I died laughing when I saw this moment in the movie--oh, my, what a put on: the "big-eyed-harmless-Kitty" thing--all a lie! LOL! [face_laugh][face_laugh] "Purrfect!" ;) Love all of these!

    BTW--will you be at C4? I sure hope so--all the card people need desperately to see your fabulous work! **starts to help jedipencil pack a suitcase to go to C4** It could be the opportunity of a lifetime! **tosses aside the Darth Maul socks--packs the Obi Wan socks instead** Trust me--you can always use a little "Light Side of the Force" for things like this... :D ;) Seriously--I hope you can go!

    Thank you ShrunkenJedi... and yes, Luke can be tricky to draw. But he has certain characteristics that make it not too bad... the hobbits give me a much harder time for some reason. And FalconFan, good choice on the Obi-Wan socks!! :D I wish I could go to C4 but alas, not this time. That's a major trip from up here and takes more coins than I have at present, but I will get to a convention eventually, and meet everybody!! :D Yes, Puss'n Boots just melted my heart...and my daughter's too - I did that card for her! Oh and I think this is the proper code for Luke - little devil was all shy on imageshack the other day...

    Again, you've done a wonderful job! Luke looks perfect!!! [face_love] =D=

    For what it's worth, I'm scouring the image banks for you; no luck yet, but I've stumbled onto things before--I'll keep trying! :)

    Problem solved!! (d'uh, I just had to rent the movie, I'm not too quick sometimes) Thanks FalconFan, I truly appreciate your help...:):) I'll be a bit busy for the next month, but will eventually have lots to show - as soon as we are given permission too!

    Okay these are photos touched up in photoshop! They have to be!

    Just kidding, these are awesome. I just quickly went through your thread and some very impressive work I must say.

    Wow! :eek: They look awesome!!!
    I esp love the black/white drawings, my fav there is Leia in the third card set at the bottom of the left side.
    But they all look great and I love the light/shadow on them or the colors. [face_love] =D= You really can be proud!

    Wow!! A set of pro-cards?! =D==D= We all knew it would happen for you!! You're entirely too talented for it NOT to! lol!

    Huge congrats, and I love these: that you've include some colored and some not is a wonderful touch--it shows the detailing that you achieve in simple pencils, as well as the depth that your fabulous watercolors bring! =D= Just gorgeous!! And again--most sincere congratulations!! :D

    Thanks Chilla and FalconFan... I'm really proud to be a part of it. And lucky - first time out and all, and having no clue which way to approach something like this...but hey, a pretty cool way to learn! I hope I get to do it again...:D Awfully nice of you guys to drop by! :)

    Oh, very cool. Great job on all! I think I like some of the Leia ones in the third set the best, or maybe the Lukes in the second set. :D

    Congratulations on getting a slot in the 30th Anniversy Card set! As soon as I saw your art on here I wouldn't have been surprised if you made it pro. They're great.
