    Why lurk when you can be part of this community!

    [:D]

    Welcome and keep your good work up! I am always amazed how many ways fans find to express themselves here in fanart. So many different styles, so many different characters. Simply great.

    Great works again and I have seen them all on Deviant too.

    What do you use for your cards? Pencils?

    Thanks! I actually do all of my digital sketch cards in Photoshop from start to finish. I'd like to get into traditional sketch cards too, but I feel like my traditional medium work is sub-par! But it's something I definitely want to get into. Thanks for the kind words! =)

    Thanks for explaining that to us. The bird and I, both lovers of traditional methods, are always currious how other fanartists create their work pieces.

    I have to say following your blog and watching the evolution of your art is a true inspiration for me(yes, that probably sounds sappy, but meh! :p). Your style really struck a chord with me and I think it's awesome that your art got to be put on display at the JC/FF booth as well as on the different badges throughout the show(I proudly displayed your name badge throughout the entirety of the weekend!). Congrats again on that!

    I wish you luck with all your future SW endeavors - I can relate to all the struggles you're going through. Trying to make it as a SW artist myself and it's not easy, let me tell you. Hopefully one of these days perseverance will pay off!

    AzureAngel2, as soon as it's up on my blog, you'll be able to see it right here:

    http://iwillbeastarwarsartist.blogspot.com/

    But I'll also update this thread with the link in the first post, just as I've been doing the last few updates. =) It's going to be a few weeks though! Since I'm preparing like a mofo for my Dark Horse portfolio review in October, and also trying to keep all of my commissioned work under control! The paid stuff has to come first, you know? [face_laugh] Since we're friends on DeviantArt, I'm sure you'll see the notice once I've submitted the tutorial there too!

    Thanks so much for the kind words and support, HanSolo29! Your work is pretty phenomenal too! =) Your rendering is really gorgeous. I just friended you on the deviantart listed in your profile! And that doesn't sound sappy at all, I know exactly what you mean. Even though our styles are so different, I think it's really great that we can both draw inspiration from each others' work.

    Best of luck to you as well! If I can ever do anything to help achieve your dream, don't hesitate to ask! =) Us artists gotta stick together!

    Lalalalala. Sorry, I was so utterly focused on starting the new school year nicely and not crying too much about the temporal seperation from my husband.

    *has to work far, far away from home and him at present*

    Luckily my in-laws are great persons and did alter their living-room a big deal. Not even my painting materials have space, but also an IKEA cupboard for my belongings and a guest bed.

    So thanks for pushing my nose towards it!

    Ah, I'm sorry to hear about the temporary situation AzureAngel2, but I'm sure it'll lead to something good!! And you'll be back home with your husband before you know it.

    Thanks, JediGunship! I'm actually really hard at work at the remaining 6 pages for my Dark Horse portfolio review in October. So check back over the next couple of weeks to see what happens next! =)
