    Wow! I just went through your thread here for the first time and count me in as an instant fan of your work! You do such a great job at capturing the feeling behind a scene or a face. Wonderful! And I really like how you use color. I think this card is one of my favorites:

    Superb update, jedipencil! I absolutely adore your cantina image! I love the limited color palette and the composition reminds me a lot of Drew Struzan's work. I'm not sure if you were going for that feel, but that's the first thing I thought of when I clicked on it. Heck, you even got the guys from the Holiday Special in there! I'm impressed! Nicely done! :D

    AH!! I love the cantina commission!! =D= All the "denizens" in one place, lol! I agree with our moderator--the muted colors are wonderful, and it really does have a poster feel to it! =D= And Aragorn... **drools** Well...'nuff said... Lovely, lovely work! =D=

    Obi-Dawn Kenobi, HanSolo29, FalconFan...Thanks for the kind words! For the cantina, the commissioner had asked for a monochrome color scheme, and I had wanted to give it a slightly "aged" feel to it. I'm not sure it completely succeeded, but I am pleased with it. So was the commissioner...!:) As there are a number of sets happening - Heroes has just been sent in, and a couple of others happening - I haven't been able to put as much time into Star Wars lately as I'd like. But, all the Jacen/Ben drawings are on my table, so they tempt me when I have a minute...:D

    Thanks! And FalconFan, thanks for dropping by - I know how busy you are! [face_love] Is it proper to announce a website here? I finally managed to put up some kind of resemblance of a site, and am ultra busy on a new set at the moment. Please just spank me or delete me if this is not "netiqutte"... on the chance that it is permitted, well please drop by and take a quick look...:)...at: www.vikingillus.com (the coffee is in the corner)

    Thanks earlybird-obi-wan... Do you mean these?

    http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb226/jedipencil/to_post_4.jpg

    The one on the left is Claire, and the one on the right is Nikki. These two cards were for sets, therefore the time we have to spend on them is very, very short....:)

    Wow! You really have been busy! You have a bunch of amazing cards there, Ingrid! My favorites come from the LotR and Indy sets. And of course, the painting of the puppy is just adorable!

    Nice work! =D=

    Awesome!
    I was on the LOTR Masterpieces II series.
    Didn't get my stuff in on time for Indy Heritage.
    AND will be doing the Cancer benefit auction in March as well. Still have to do my cards. ;)

    Nice collection! You have a really great style!

    I don't know if I missed it or if the question was already asked, but how did you get picked for the sketch cards?

    Beautiful, beautiful cards, Ingrid! The one depicting the final scene of LC really came out nice - that's my favorite of the bunch!

    Thanks again for sharing your work with us! :)

    **giggling**

    I HAD to get in here and check out the "catastrophic mess!" [face_laugh] But, as I suspected, a mess was the last thing I discovered!! =D=[face_nodding]=D=

    Gawd, what a great collection!! Or should I say, collections? They're all just wonderful, but some of my favorites are--the puppy (Lordy, what a darling face!! [face_love]), some of the "epic" scenes from LOTR, and most of the Indy ones (when I saw the one of Indy in class, I couldn't stop laughing, thinking of that girl in the front row with the "I LOVE YOU" on her eyelids! **collapses in laughter again** [face_laugh] ). Your ability to capture a likeness is so "jealous-making," but it's one of the things I simply adore about looking through your work! =D= Marion especially looks terrific! Awesome work all around! =D=

    Great googily-moogily! those cards are incredible. I don't know how you get such photo realistic drawings on such a small surface, incredible detail!? Each one is superb. Thanks for sharing them with us.

    Those are amazing!! And as much as I like the colored ones, I adore the non-colored -- you show amazing detail.
