    Tom Hodges was kind enough to pass along my name as a possible addition to the ROTS sketch card line-up. I understand he did the same for Grant Gould and Paul Gutierrez (but I could be mistaken). Either way, he was a fan artist who was passing along his good fortune to other fan artists, and I'm forever in his debt.

    A two-fer personal sketch card from me (featuring a Vader that's more "early McQuarrie" than canon):

    You are correct about Paul and Grant. As for being forever in my debt, Forever is a long time... I hope you're up for it. LOL

    Just don't make me sing any songs for you while you eat, and we'll be aces.

    Meriwyn! :D

    That Obi-Wan card is one of my favorites. In other words, it's one of the cards I was actually happy with. I'm glad you liked it as well.

    I know it's not star wars, but sometimes ya' just have to draw something else. But in the spirit of keeping this post on topic, here's something I made for fun:

    This last bit is also non-SW related, but I wanted to direct the serious illustrators around here to a journal entry at my deviantART page. It is regarding to an opportunity to work in comics and be published, to move beyond the label "fan artist" . . . click here to read more.

    OTIS!! Good stuff man, good stuff...You need to contact Grant and get into the LOTR artist blog. I know the others would want to see them.

    Thanks, Cat. :D

    If you check the archives on the blog, you'll see I was one of the first artists to post there. I just haven't sent Grant any images in a while.

    Awwwww!!! How cute is the Santa piece?! I love it, Otis!! And your LOTR cards look just awesome--I can't believe that you've done virtually every character in the films! The colored ones look great, and I can't wait to see all of them done. Wonderful work--and "Happee Holidays" to you too! :D

    Thanks, FalconFan. :)

    I haven't done much Star Wars stuff lately. Been too busy with the LOTR cards and personal projects. But I did just do a double sketch card commission:

    [image=http://www.otisframpton.com/Personal_Sketch_Cards/Tusken1.jpg]

    And I suppose this personal piece I did could fall into the category of "star wars":

    Oh, great Tusken Raiders piece! =D= I love the detailing on the face wrappings/masks, on the bantha, and in the setting of the twin suns in the background--excellent!

    And I totally love "Zeek!" The expression on his face, with the big creature underneath him (which looks like it's about to "dine" on him! lol!) is priceless! Wonderful planets--and the spaceship back there so reminds me of "Duck Dodgers in the 24th-and-a-half Century!" Awesome!

    =D=

    Thanks AGAIN, FalconFan. :D

    The Tusken cards were for a buyer at my online store and I haven't heard back from them. I hope he likes them.

    As for Zeek, I may be doing more with him. I'd like to do a monthly webcomic featuring Zeek getting into sticky situations like the one seen in that image. Stay tuned.

    Great stuff you got going here, Otis! :D

    I have an illustration prof at the moment who's work reminds me a lot of yours. I'm coming to appreciate the more animated and digital style of work after trying it out myself and finding that I really enjoy it. I find it a lot more relaxing than sitting for hours trying to get every single detail correct on a realistic portrait. Keep up the awesome work! :)

    BTW, if you do have some non-SW stuff, please don't hesitate to share. ;)

    Thanks, Steph!

    As long as I have mod approval to show more personal work (since I don't really do any SW stuff anymore unless it's a commsissioned sketch card), here's some new work . . .

    This is the cover to my upcoming 2006 sketchbook:

    [image=http://otisframpton.com/Figments_Cover.jpg]

    And since everyone else was doing one, so I dashed this off at work last night:

    [image=http://www.otisframpton.com/Sketches/Batgirl.jpg]

    It's my favorite Robin, Carrie Kelly, taking a turn in the Batsuit.

    A comic about Zeek would have been so cool! He reminds me of Clive, Cabbage and Copper.

    And Skywookiee, don't count out a Zeek comic just yet. It may happen.

    ROTFL over the sketchbook cover, Otis!! It's our little spacefaring friend Zeek again, isn't it? And he's in what looks like a veeeerrrryy dangerous place!! LOL!! "Figments" is a great title, too--it's what populates most of our sketchbooks, actually! ;)

    And your little Batgirl looks great, with her little "Bat-Teddy" sitting next to her! That was quite a long list of Bat-characters there...lots of participation makes it fun for everyone, tho!

    And yeah--all hail our Magnificent Mod, HanSolo29, who lets us put all manner of "stuff" in our threads! And we'll all stop by to marvel in here, no matter what you put up! :D Looking forward to more!
