    Hi,

    I did these a few months back, but just found this forum so I thought I'd share them here. I'd been thinking about designing some SW villains for a while and finally got to sketching out some of my ideas. Here goes

    Hey thanks!

    I also have a Grievous painting in progress, and a Vader piece roughed out too. I'll post 'em up when they're done.

    Hello namesjames, and welcome to the Fan Art forum! These are awesome renderings/paintings--wonderful use of shadow and tone to get that "ominous look!" You definitely have a talent for designing "bad guys" (and gals!), that's for sure! Which program do you scan your lineart into for painting...? Just curious! The idea for your "parasite" is rather intriguing--sort of goes along with the "Force Vampire" theory that gets a lot of mileage over in the Literature forums... But that's another subject! This is an amazing start to what I suspect is going to be a very impressive gallery--and I'll be eagerly awaiting your versions of Grievous and Vader! Again--welcome!

    These are great NJ. I really like the design of the Female Vadery girl, that should be her name. I love the detail you put into their costumes, and the fact that each one is so different from the other.

    Thanks for the warm welcome:)

    FalconFan - I use Photoshop 7 for all of my digital work. I typically have the line art on a Multiply layer and paint the colour underneath for stuff like this.

    I've added an Advanced Saber Droid to the gallery. It's an idea that I've been thinking about for a while, I was inspired last night to finally get it down on paper and finish it up.

    Ah--thanks for the info--we always tend to be curious about an artist's process and media, particularly the digital kind--there are so many programs out there, it's always cool to find out how someone uses them.

    And that Saber-Droid is a chilling apparition! Sort of the "Grim Reaper" for some poor Jedi... **shudders** Fantastic detailing on his metal body, and I love the rim-light you have on him here--it's very eerie, and gives an even colder feel to the image--most excellent! Your use of light is exceptional--very cohesive and consistent--and really adds a lot to these pieces. Keep up the great work!

    Welcome to Fanarts, namesjames! [:D]

    Wow, great start! You've got great talent! :eek:

    I can only agree with FalconFan! The droid looks awesome and I love the colors of the background, too! Great details!

    My fav one if the woman who looks a bit like Vader. Great design! :eek: =D=

    Would love to see more of your work soon! :)




    PS: Please don't forget to go back to your first post, click edit and leave a note in the title/header of this thread when you update next, so I won't be able to miss it. :D

    they are jaw droppingly good! You have a lovely sense of style, and each character has undeniable presence, I love the barbarian looking dark side bounty hunter, for me it captures the fantasy/sci-fi element which is so great about the star wars verse

    Thanks for all the comments:) I dug out the folder with the rest of my SW Villain sketches in it. I've just scanned them, I'll drop some colour on them and post them soon.

    Wow, these are all awesome! I like the droid the most. Kind of like a mix between Grievous and the Terminator, but still very original. =D=

    Amazing! The 'female Vader' was so unique. All of your work is very well-done!
