    Totally awesome, but there appears to be a gap in the orange blaster fire underneath the AT-ST. Maybe I'm missing something, I don't know...

    But this painting is probably your best yet. You will probably gain the attention of LFL with this one. ;)

    Glad it looks like Luke. Sometime I might post the in-process of him because it's hilarious and he looks like a ferret.

    Jace, I put the gap in there on purpose... it's supposed to be repeating fire as opposed to a long stream of it. I'll keep practicing my laser fire; it's getting better but still needs a lot of work.

    I kind of doubt anyone from LFL actually visits the fanart boards, but I appreciate the wishful thinking.

    As always, I love your work and this piece was gorgeous. Luke's face makes me think Ben is talking to him again...lol.

    I agree Yane...i love this new painting, as i do all of them! :)

    my personal fave is The Sith War one, though.

    Obi-Wan: Shift gears, Luke.
    Luke: Uh....what's this button do? :presses button saying 'Self Destruct'

    Obi actually looks plastic close-up, but I discovered a trick while working on this (if you could call it that).

    See, I would draw two characters or so on a big long canvas, then pull it into Photoshop to test how it would look banner-size. But everytime I did that, my aspect ratio would be too tall... to fit into a 110 px high banner size, the heads would have to be cut off or something. So I would add 500 pixels to the left or right of the canvas to try to fix the aspect ratio. I did this 6 or 7 times on an already huge canvas and ended up with one almost 6000 px wide.

    I thought that would be annoying, but I noticed that all my messy brushwork would be really hidden when I zoomed out to a normal-looking size. Check 'em out next to their reference photos:

    [image=http://www.sharpfish.net/obi.jpg]

    Those are still zoomed out to about 35-40% of their actual size, but you can see they're really messy even at this magnification.

    And now I've written a novel. Oh well.

    I work for a multi-media firm, so I've got a nice graphics workstation. It's a Velocity Micro, 3.2 Ghz HT Pentium 4, 2.1 GB memory, dual-256 GB SATA hard-drives RAID box.

    It's dangerous territory to encourage me to talk about my computer, though. I have an unhealthy infatuation with it. I'm only just barely managing to refrain from spouting poetry...


    Here's a quick sketch:

    I love it! :D :D

    Except for one thing... Sorry. [face_blush]

    The people look sort of sad, in a way. I imagined they would be happier, more passionate about life. But that's just opinion...

    Maybe that's right after the Imperials took over...

    You're only looking at one guy, not everyone can be happy. And he doesn't seem sad to me. Quiet Ty. :p

    Good job wick. ;)

    Excellence again Wick.

    Maybe they are sad due to the fact that Leia has been arrested by the Empire ?

    ;) D.
