    I'm new to the forum and just happened on your thread... And I was blown away!
    Your art is amazing!

    I especially love the Maul one (ehm.. coz Maul's my fave). I also have to say that you really bring out the samurai feel in Vader's costume :D

    You have really good technical watercolour skills too! You must have spent a long time perfecting them. So, you work as a professional for Topps?

    Yes...most of my work, this past year has been done for Topps and Rittenhouse Archives.
    Thanks for the compliment!

    WOW!! =D==D=

    I LOVE it!! Of course, who wouldn't love such a great painting of Kenobi--all "general-y!" The composition is fabulous, with Obi Wan dominating, but Grievous hovering malevolently in the lower frame--it really tells the story of the title (which I always love!)--terrific palette, too, imparting the sense of urgency in said hunt. Marvelous work! =D==D=

    Wow, I'm so glad I randomly wandered over to this forum :D Wonderfully done, Mark. =D= Now I have a question for you: what are sketch cards and what is the significance of them? :confused:

    Some beautiful work here...In this age of photoshopped DVD sleeves, book covers etc, it's so refreshing to see such strikingly original SW artwork =D=

    The Vader/Twin Suns from Page 1 of this thread is my fav.

    The piece you did for the base card is simply amazing, Mark! I just keep staring at it. I'm sure there's plenty of collectors out there who can't wait to get their hands on this one. ;)

    Holy MOLY!!! AWEsomeness!! =D==D= I just adore your use of color and tone--you manage to get all the contours perfect to capture the likenesses, as well as providing a boldness that's so perfectly Star Wars! I think my favorite of these is Han and Chewie--mostly because I can so exactly place their mood and moment from the scene--but Padme and Leia are just gorgeous, as well! :_| I can't choose!! :_|

    ;)

    Fabulous, fabulous work!!
