    Hi All! This is my first post and the start of my S.W. Art thread. It's a pleasure to be here and I hope you enjoy viewing my art as much as I enjoy painting it. Any comments are welcome!

    Very, very nice :D
    Watrercolours are a very difficuly medium but you seem to have great control of them, and you've used them very effectively. Very nice choice of colours and the Asajj Ventress piece is a real stand-out, although Maul isn't too far behind.

    Great stuff!

    Ditto with the praise for Asajj Ventress. Enormously cool.

    Holy WOW, and a slightly belated welcome to the forum, Mark! Your work leaves my mouth hanging open, it's so vivid and full of energy: I'm with everyone else on the Ventress piece... :eek:=D= They're all gorgeous, with such movement and impact--and I'm dying of jealousy over your skill with the watercolors!! **nodding** :D Fabulous work, and we're so delighted you chose to share it with us here! I could see all of these becoming collector cards...have you approached any of the companies that do those? If not, you most certainly should! :D Definitely looking forward to seeing more!

    Thanks for the kind words...and no...I have not approached any card companies (Topps...?) about my Star Wars art....yet. I have done sketch cards for Rittenhouse (DC Legacy set) but that's been it so far. I would love to do some official SW art if they'll have me!

    A wonderful use of watercolour there, I particuarly love the Darth Maul one, great details on his face and with the contrasting colours in the rain. You make Asajj look so demonic in your piece about her, it's abseloutely awesome, you certainly have a way with this medium :D Great work!

    I know I'm a little late in saying this, but welcome to Fan Art! :)

    You have quite a knack for watercolor - everything is beautifully done! The painting of Asajj really grabs your attention. I think out of all of them, that one is my favorite!

    I'm also diggin' your latest one featuring Boba Fett. Excellent work all around!

    Oh, wow--that painting of Darth Talon rocks!! =D= I love the sort of evil smile you've given her--it so fits!--and the figure work is awesome! Love it! The angle on the Boba Fett sketch is a bit steep, but I can still see it's a fabulous piece--well done! Hope you had a great time at the con!

    Wow.

    You are good.

    My favorite is Darth Vader and the binary sunset thing going on :)

    Did you use reference pics, or did you draw/paint them off the top of your head?

    Thanks. For Vader, Maul, Asajj and Order 66 Vader no reference pics were used. I drew up all of the poses and then had some Medicom and Sideshow figures handy just to make sure I got the uniforms and little details right.
