    I'm not sure if any of you will even remember me. I took a way too long hiatus from drawing in general and I'm just getting my legs back. The release of the title for Ep 3 seems to have poked me into gear, but only enough to do some rough doodles. I don't think I've drawn anything Star Wars other than the odd ewok head here and there and one drawing of Kit Fisto (Oh, and my Ewok livejournal theme and a Twi'Lek one for a friend) since, oh, 2001. I have done other stuff, I can post links if people want.

    It's a start. I think I'll be drawing again in no time.

    A couple of Star Wars sketchies.

    Here are a couple of my favourite moods from the set:

    (moods were done in Adobe Illustrator)

    For those of you who are wondering where I have been, I graduated from a 3 year graphic design course in April (With honours). I'm working full-time as a designer.

    Oddly enough, I don't think I did ANYTHING Star Wars related for any of my projects.

    I may as well post a link to the thing that killed my brain and left me unable to draw for a month (I spent 12 hours straight on this one day, and it took me much, much, much longer in total)

    And here are things in the style I've been using a lot lately, because it's fast. The following are all Illustrator:

    Thanks, TDH!

    Holy crap, you seem to be doing well for yourself. :)

    I added you to my LJ friends, by the way, if you're wondering who the freak was who added you ;)

    I like the Ewok and Wookiee one but a Wookiee asking for peace?

    Who said he was asking for peace? I think he's just going 'Jeez, jeez, calm down.'

    The sketches just happened to be drawn right next to each other.

    Something for a friend, totally not canon. :)

    I'm getting the big back. The sketches are still super messy, ut you can just SMELL the repressed muse coming off of these.

    I think this took me all of 15 minutes. If not less. I need to regain my patience so I can do a cleaned up version.

    I've started to colour the Taun Taun jedi. :)

    Mods, how does one edit one's post titles to have the update? I hope this works!

    I need to texture the horns, claws etc, paint on the horn ornaments and deepen the shadows on the snow.

    The taun-taun jedi is great! How clever. :D

    Good selection of colours, as well. My only critique would be that the light from the saber that is bouncing off the tail actually looks brighter than the light bouncing off the head/neck, which are much closer to the lightsource.

    Your natural lightsource is pretty bright since you don't have any major shadows, etc... so the light from the saber would probably be pretty diffused by the time it gets to the tail as compared to it hitting off the face.

    Anyway, I really like it. Can't wait to see it finished.

    Thanks for the crit, Wick. :)

    I'm going to be adding more highlights to the face, hands, etc from the saber and toning it down on the tail.

    I'm trying to make the shadows a litle darker, too, I have this unnatural fear of dramatic lighting, so I'm taking baby steps. ;) I keep building up the shadows as I go, you are right about the tail, though.

    More art!

    I found some sketches that are from earlier in the year, And I have finished the tauntaun jedi :)

    Here he is, the colouring is a little rough. I'll probably go back to it a lot. I might eventually get rid of the pencil lines and do a full rendering if I feel courageous enough in the future.

    [link=http://flyingarmadillo.com/cantina/artwork/2004/bursa.jpg]Bursa[/link] and [link=http://flyingarmadillo.com/cantina/artwork/2004/gungan.jpg]Gungan[/link] sketches (Pardon my absolutely crappy scanner)
    The Bursa creatures from the Wildlife of StarWars and a meditating Gungan (Not to scale).

    *edit* Removed the Hackey Sack ewoks until I can get a better scan :)

    D'aw, thanks, guys :)

    I should dust off some of the art I did during my hiatus, I have some things from a proposal that didn't make it.

    Thanks, Wick. :)I took your advice and some other people's advice about the bounced lighting, and it looks way better.
