    Thank you everyone...:) HanSolo29 - that card turned out better than I thought it would...I may keep it! FalconFan - thanks for stopping by! It's SO nice to see you back, and I'm looking forward to see more of your work! Ty-Ordell and NYCitygurl - thanks...one of the hardest things about doing sets like these is the fact that you simply CAN'T put alot of time on most of the cards. But Star Wars and Indiana Jones are my favorites so far...

    An we just got a new Teckel puppy, cute as all get out...might do a little portrait of him during a break...

    And now....on to Jacen!

    Well, I actually did get some sketches done! Nothing finished yet...:(...but, there are a few new things.... first, I do stuff for a horse magazine on occasion, and these illustrations were for a driving certificate:

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

    A few more LOTR:

    http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb226/jedipencil/3_back.jpg

    The first of 3 cards for another cancer benefit (breast cancer)character chosen in honor of the up-coming movie... There will be of course a princess Leia, and I know with absolute certainty that no-one will be able to guess the third female character I chose, as I think I'm the only person who is a fan of the show...:D...I'll post her when she is done: (hmmmmm.....if anyone guesses, maybe I should give them a card...)

    And a couple of commissions:

    Great update, jedipencil!

    The last batch of LOTR cards really turned out nice! I'm really liking that last Frodo - so much depth and detail in such a small space! And I must say, the ET one? I love it! :)

    Loved those horses as a painter of them too. And those LOTR images are great too.

    Oh, loving the new pieces!! =D==D= I'm with our mod on these--Frodo and the ET pieces are just fantastic! It still boggles my mind, how much detail you manage to get in such a tiny space...awesome! =D= :D

    Well, here goes. I've done a bunch of quick sketches - I mean really loose and unfinished - of Jacen, Jaina and Ben... I'll post them all probably this week, but this morning Ben is in the scanner. Any and all crits are EXTREMELY welcome!!! I'd like perhaps to do a painted piece of this one... Again, this is loose and free, just trying to get a feel for this. I'd like to find a way to get Mara Jade's name in here somewhere...any ideas? I wanted to do a piece with Ben contemplating his Jedi role, perhaps thinking about why his mom appeared to him and not his dad...something like that.... My idea of a lightsabre fight between Jaina and Jacen is up next...

    Very nice, and it fits that solitude time mentioned in the book perfectly.

    Great sketch, Ingrid! I really like what you got going on with the likeness - you can definitely tell this is Luke's son.

    And do you mean you want to add Mara to this particular piece?

    Bring on the Solo twins! :D

    Wow! =D= so far I've only seen this Ben one and it's awesome! Very real looking, with the shadows and everything. Keep up the good work!

    Mitth_Fisto, HanSolo29 and TrulyGhent.....thanks so much for looking! :) The sketch of Ben will definitely end up a painting. Perhaps I'll add Mara and Luke...I really don't know yet. Well here is a quick sketch of Jaina and Jacen in my imagined battle together...the anatomy needs more work on this one, kinks that still need to be ironed out. This one is destined as a sketch card duo, but I might turn it into a painting as well. Any criticisms or background suggestions on either sketch are very welcome...! [face_love]

    Oooh, I really like your art! The one of Ben is really good, you've really captured his thoughtfulness - with perhaps a hint of doubt? (I haven't read LotF.)

    I like the Jacen vs. Jaina one, too - you have the anatomy stuff down pretty well! It's a nice change from the usual formal-pose, two-hands-on-lightsaber depictions of Jedi fights that one usually sees. I think Jaina's left arm goes back a bit too much, or at an odd angle - not sure, but it looks a bit "off". Don't get me wrong, though, I really like this piece! If you're going to paint it, I'd suggest a fairly dark background - suitable to the fight, and also makes the lightsabers easier to paint.

    Very nice so far! I think you got a great dynamic pose going here. I absolutely love it and I'm sure it'll make a great sketch card duo!

    I'm also glad to hear that the Ben piece will have some color! I can't wait to see it! :)

    Iverna and HanSolo29...thank you so much for letting me know what you think! It is hard to see one's own mistakes...[face_hypnotized] Jaina has her hand stretched out like that because of some techniques she is learning now. (I don't want to spoil the books too much for anyone...) I think it is the angle of the shoulder that needs some work. And I think you are right about a darkish background....I might make it misty-ish/spooky-ish with some added props... (for the painting anyway, for the cards I'll keep it simple. Spooky, but simple because of the size.) I'm really looking forward to painting Ben....It will have to wait a week or two, but I'm looking forward to it. Gotta fix his hands though.

    Again, thanks for the comments! :)

    Very nice sketch, she looks like she is ready for an unconventional back spin clonk to put it roughly, as for a back ground I would recommend either someplace dark with windows(possibly shaded as in the movie Ep II) or some window less dark hideaway. But with the background slightly staggered smeared from right to left so you have random lines of smear everywhere except on the figures and their lightsabers leaving them the only things fully in 'focus' and the world seemingly revoling around their duel. Or the Universe depending on your point of view.

    Hi jedipencil, and sorry for taking so long to comment on these latest EU pieces--I LOVE them!! The one of Ben gives my heart a pinch: lots of emotion in that one for me--it's a wonderful rendering of Luke and Mara's son! And Jaina and Caedus in battle is going to be epic--I can see the "unconventional" in Jaina's movement--I hope it'll be enough to save her...

    It's awesome you're doing some EU stuff--you're so talented, I knew they'd be outstanding!

    Wow, been a while since I had a chance to drop by.....:eek:.... been busy with a bunch of things... The painted Jacen and Jaina just isn't going well, that needs a re-try. But, in the meantime, here is a bit of what I've been doing:

    Thanks NYCityGirl and earlybird-obi-wan! :)

    I have some new cardstock and have been trying it out:

    Wow, awesome cards, Ingrid! I'm particularly digging your Clone Wars and Indy IV return cards. Nicely done!

    And of course, who doesn't like a little Lost thrown in there as well. ;)

    Thanks Hansolo29! (keep at those cards - you're doing great!)

    A few things done lately....:

    I've been trying my hand a sequential stuff, and here is one sample (not too many people like it but well, we all gotta start somewhere, no? The next will be better)

    More of them are on my table, when I've a minute to finish them...

    Thank you for looking! [face_love]

    Wow, great update!

    Going down the line, of course you gotta love the Indy cards. Nice work on those and I particularly like your choice of subject matter. After doing so many cards, it must get tough after a while.

    I'm also going to echo what NYCitygurl said about your sequential stuff. It seems to be coming along nicely, great work!

    And of course, thank you for the encouraging words! It really means a lot! :D

    Awesome new cards!! =D= I, like our erstwile moderator, really love the Indy cards--they're awesome! And I'm on the bandwagon with everyone else on the sequential sample--I think it looks terrific, and it makes me want to learn more about the story behind it! :D Fabulous work (I love the one of Marion, btw--I was so tickled she was back in the latest film--and the one of Willie, eyes bugging out over the bugs! LOL! [face_laugh] !), as always!
