    Hello NLSkywalker, and welcome to the forum! And don't worry at all about the English--we have members from all over the world, and we all seem to communicate just fine!

    I love these drawings! They're all just beautiful: very nice clean linework, beautiful shading and excellent-excellent fabric work (it looks very real in them all!). The portraits in particular appeal to me (I do a lot of those myself)--the one of Padme is just lovely, and Anakin as Darth Vader is chilling, just like that photo. The likenesses are very recognizable (and I'm a little jealous that you can draw Padme! :D I've tried and tried, but never quite gotten the face right! Well done!), and the emotion comes through beautifully in each piece. The one of Padme with the flowers in her hair is very "elf-like" almost--sort of a dream-image of her (...Anakin's dream...? :D )--I love the movement in that one. They're all just wonderful--and just one suggestion: rather than link to the page in your other forum, just link directly to the image's URL--example:

    --a little description here if you like--

    It'll look like this:

    Princess Leia

    If you need to look again at the markup codes for the boards here, click on the link in the title bar of this page that says "Markup Codes." It's all listed there (when I started posting here, I ended up keeping a printed copy of those for a long time, lol! :D).

    Thanks for sharing these, and we'll very much be looking forward to seeing more of your work! Once again--welcome to the forum!

    Welcome NLSkywalker!

    =D= Your drawings are beautiful! The fabric work is amazing! I especially liked it on the one of Leia! The portraits also appeal to me a little more (pretty much all I do are portraits). My favorite one out of all of these beautiful drawings is probably the one of Padme with the flowers in her hair. I also really liked the one of young Anakin though. Anyway, I can't wait to see more! :D

    Thank you for your replies, I'm glad you like my pictures.

    Thank you for your suggestion! To tell the truth, I'm not very good at computer.(At first, it just took me a long time to find the URL of my pictures. 8-} )

    PadawanDi
    Thank you so much!

    Actually, my favorite one is the first portrait of Padme, which took me a long time to draw. And my art teacher and my friend also help to perfect it. [face_love] Anyway, Padme is always my favorite character in SW, I watch Natalie's film since I was 6 years old.
    Since the summer vacation is coming, I will do more artwork. Now I plan to draw a Jango's portrait. Maybe it will come out in a few days!

    Well,actually this is not a character from SW, but I just got the idea from Kit Fisto.

    Hi there NLSkywalker. These are some gorgeous drawings you have! I think my favorite is the first one of Natalie, the one where she's wearing a necklace. She looks really alive and I love the eyes and how you drew the hair. Looking forward to see more from you.

    Oh I love the Nautolan-inspired "wizard," NL!! What a wonderful, mysterious-looking character! The fabric work on the robes is luscious--gorgeous folding and draping...something that's exceedingly hard for me to do from imagination like this. The dias you have him/her on is also beautiful--well shaded and shaped to give it a lot of volume. Yet another great piece!

    Hi, NL! I think your drawings are outstanding! My favorite is the Leia one, b/c I have the poster that it's from framed in my living room. I don't know if it's true for everyone else but your images load sooooooo slooooooowly for me. In fact I wasn't even able to load them last night, and today it's still molasses slow. Is there anywhere else for you to upload your images like photobucket?

    Welcome to the fan art forums!

    Thank you for all your relpies!

    I also like the eyes in that one! You know ,that just remind me of the most beautiful girl in my grade.

    FalconFan
    I'm glad you like the fabric!(which took me really a long time to deal with) Actually, I imitate it from some famous drawings.

    Giolon05
    I'm sorry that it took you a long time to load. :(
    And I also wonder the meaning of photobucket? (I really feel ashamed :_| )

    And here is my new post!
    Jango Fett's portrait:

    And some other drawings:

    This is a drawing that I imitate one from Da Vinci. But I don't know the name of this drawing.
    The first one is by Da Vinci:[image=http://www.ce.cn/kjwh/scpm/zixun/200601/05/W020060105274449163462.jpg]

    This is my favorite one, the Gothic lady!

    Tomorrow I will take a journey to USA. I'm just so excited! I will come back 2 weeks later and I hope to buy some artwork of SW there. I even can't get a poster of SW in my city,which just annoies me!

    Beautiful drawings, NL!! Man, the Da Vinci ones are just awesome: such delicate, lovely shading--especially in the colored one (which really reminds me of Da Vinci's work--wonderful job!! =D= ). The "metal effect" on Jango's helmet is great--it really looks like metal! Excellent shading on this one, too! And the rest of them are also very very good--I think my only suggestion might be for "Gothic Lady," to add in a little shading on the grave-markers and mounds behind and to her left--with all the amazing shading and highlights on her (she looks superb, btw!), that part of the piece looks a little underdeveloped. I think that might help "finish" the scene just a bit more. Gorgeous work, all! And I hope you have (had?) a great time visiting the US--and that you got to buy some SW art here! There's plenty of it around!

    Welcome back, NL, and I'm glad you liked your visit! San Francisco is a beautiful city, though I myself haven't been to Hawaii so wouldn't know about there! Did you find some Star Wars art to buy? In any case, we're glad you enjoyed your trip and will be looking forward to some more beautiful art when you can post some! :D

    Very pretty, NL! The robes are just gorgeous--I could definitely see you taking your artistic talents into costume design someday!--the swirling swaths of blue are beautiful (blue is my favorite color! :p ). You've also done a wonderful job with her hair, which looks quite realistic. Another wonderful piece!

    I really giggled when I saw all your "color samples" along the right side of the page here--I end up with that whenever I attempt to use my colored pencils as well! lol!!

    These are actually very good sketches of the droids--spare in the details, but immediately recognizable, both. I love the fast, sure lines you have going here--beautiful--and the splashes of color and shading. For quick work, they look just great (and I have a terrible time drawing anything mechanical, so kudos for that, as well!)!

    These look very nice! The thumbnails look to be very detailed, and I'd love to see more. Unfortunately they're loading very slowly for me and the main images don't show up at all.

    I think someone suggested this earlier, but have you considered storing your images somewhere like Photobucket? It's basically just a service which hosts your pictures for you, for free. It's not difficult to sign up, and they have instructions for uploading pictures, linking to them, and so on. You might find it helpful :)

    Thanks, I always believe those gorgeous cloak fits her! ;)

    PadwanDi
    Thank you, I'm glad you like the Gothic Lady. You know what, I got some idea from a song call The Mass(Era) [face_love] .And the hair, I just believed that add some color would be better(which I planed to use only black earlier :D )

    FF
    Yeah, it's really quite hard for me to color the picture(that really annoys me!) :_| , I just usually use carbon pencil/stick ,that's why I tried on different color. And this is my first time to draw some mechanical things like that, I am very happy you like it and thank you for your kind response! [:D]

    Hey, awesome :) Loading much faster now!

    I really like these. The shading's superb, and your likenesses of Anakin and Padmé are spot-on - I really like the one of Anakin/Vader without the hood on. Very nice.

    The Da Vinci picture is also amazing - wonderful work!

    Keep drawing!
