    Very nice! I like how you choose red for Lord Vader. It gives it a very Sith-ly look.

    Obi-Wan and Vader are both very nice. You've really got you style down pat.

    Hi Mark

    I really like the loose painterly style you've got going on and you also have a strong sense of colour. Do you keep a sketchbook, I'd love to see some if you do?

    Hi lavo!
    I actually don't keep a sketch book. I have sketch pads that turn into sketch piles.

    Fantastic work on the vader piece, it's great to get a look at your sketches too, always love to see the original sketches for pieces that turn out as great as yours :D

    Hi Mark

    There's some great sketch work going on there :cool:. I always enjoy seeing the energy of an artists' initial sketches I think it can sometimes be lost in the rendering of colour and so on but you haven't lost any of it.

    Thanks! I know exactly what your taking about, Lavo. I was just looking at another artist's pencil work that was inked by someone else...and the beautiful and subtle nuances of the the pencil lines had been lost.

    I, also, am a big fan of rough pencil sketches. I love seeing the energy and the fresh ideas before they get slicked-up and made shiny. Thank you for putting up your roughs, Mark.

    :eek:=D=

    Amazing work!! =D= I can't add much more than has already been "gushed" here, outside of the fact that you sketch card artists just blow me away, with the fantastic detail and perfect likenesses you achieve on such LITTLE pieces of paper!! **much genuflecting** Fabulousness! =D= I love the Vader pieces from a ways back--but your Indy cards are just gorgeous; and I have to admit to being a BIG Joker fan--I adore the Dark Knight sketch!! [face_laugh]=D= Amazing!

    Wow, can't believe I didn't see your Indy cards yet! Wonderful work, you really know how to work in that brown color scheme. They're just... wow, really well painted. @};-
