    Hay thanks guys for the compliments

    here is a another bit of Star Wars project news

    they have started releasing information about the up coming 30th Anniversary card set from Topps. I was honored to be asked to create an image for the sell sheet..so they used the image to show the design of the sketch cards for the set.

    [image=http://www.airbrushcat.com/newart3/obi.jpg][image=http://www.airbrushcat.com/newart3/CSsellsheetweb.jpg]

    it is going to be another beautiful set of cards..another great group of artists creating cards based on A New Hope.

    Wow, I didn't know you were an official SW artist, but I can clearly see why! Obi-Wan and Luke are just awesome! [face_love]
    I love the lighting and colors on Luke's face and hair and the helmet alone is already a masterpiece! You even put some dirt on it! :eek:
    And Obi-Wan is great! I like the sketch-like look on his hair, but only drawing the ear must have taken lots of time and thought. Wow! I've never figured out to draw those! When I draw an ear, it's a ball with an 's' above. [face_blush] Yours has much more details.

    =D= [face_love] Wonderful work! Please, more! [face_praying]

    :eek: "Suck?!?!" [Yoda]Heresy, that is!![/Yoda] :D :p

    These are too amazing!! What a wonderful skill you have for capturing each character, in mood and likeness--your talent is awe-inspiring, to say the least!! Those two of old Obi-Wan are to-die-for...love-love-love them! I wish you much, much success in the sale of these cards (wanders back to broken piggy bank to count the leftover coins... :( :p ;) )! Thanks again for sharing all of these here--it's so great!

    BTW..for those attending CIV or have a friend attending for them...

    OK..Following Dave and Joe's lead...

    I am taking reserve requests for my CIV print. If you would like to be placed on the list please email to cat@airbrushcat.com with the subject heading CIV Print reserve.

    I will be taking payment at the show NOT before. I will hold the print until end of the day Saturday. Please only reserve a copy if you or your represenative are serious about picking one up.(limit two per person for the reservation list)

    The Print is a limited edition of 250, will be 18" x 24" and priced at $50. It will ONLY be available at Celebration IV on Los Angeles May 24- May 28 2007. I cannot sell it before or after the show. For a lower number it would be best to come by at the begining of the convention. I cannot hold a specific number.

    Ok..now...See you all in LA..We are going to have a GRAND time!!

    Thanks everyone!!

    **sighs, browsing through cards one more time...for the twelfth time**

    ;) :D

    I never, ever cease to be awed by your skills and talent, Cat... You did one of the "Han Solo" moments I have always adored: "Where'd you dig up that old fossil?!" =D==D= I always hear dialog in my head when I look at your art--it just plays in my mind, because your capture of the scene and the face/character is always soooo perfect! [face_love] I just love your work--it's so awesome! Have a fabulous time at C4--our hearts go with you!

    I think it's safe to say that FF took the words right out of my mouth! I can't get over the way you capture expressions. All of them are spot on! That little sneak peek of the colored cards are also amazing! As always, thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your work with us! It's truly appreciated! :)

    I have been away from this thread for far too long. The artwork you have displayed in the last few months has been amazing. Even that, 'amazing', doesn't fully comprehend it all. The amount of cards and precision in each is breathtaking. And your coloured work is more than that. The Obi-Wan coloured card back in January is classic. You've captured a look that is just unnaturally awesome. Keep up this special work, Cat, because it blows my mind in its sheer brilliance.

    How about an update...

    [image=http://www.airbrushcat.com/SW30/SW30set23.jpg]

    [image=http://www.airbrushcat.com/SW30/SW30set24.jpg]


    Ok...This is something I hope you all like...there will be quite a few of these each set featuring a single character..They are made so you can mix and match and make your own set. Some will also have pencil as well as color splashed in.

    Oh, I'm likin' these, I am-I am!! =D= First--that logo with the troopers in each letter is freakin' fantastic! What a great idea (and I'm fascinated I've never seen it done like that before! =D= )! We get to see them (him?) from every angle--so great! A perfect idea for a card pack--congratulations on doing it first! The first of the new set is wonderful: we get the essence of each character--Leia's composure, Han's bravado and Luke's enthusiasm (and dare I say it? Naivete? ;) ). I love all the second sheet--Luke and Leia, Han, Biggs...fabulous. How in the world do you capture such flawless likenesses with such economy...? **shakes head in awe** Just fantastic work--and I hope you had a terrific time at C4!

    Nicely done, Cat! As always, the portraits are spot on and you've captured the expressions of each character exactly! Can't wait to see what else you have in store for us! :D

    Wonderful! I really, REALLY like the Stormtroopers in the Star Wars noodle logo. That's a fantastic idea to spread across cards. Good work! :)

    Hey thanks kiddies!!! You are too kind.

    Ok..and here are a few color ones..I only ended up being able to do 30 or so of the 300 total, in full color..kinda sucks..I wanted to do so much more..there just wasn't enough time. These six are my return cards.
