Hi everyone. I've begun this new thread in the hopes of actually keeping it alive and going. That means I have to post new stuff, doesn't it. Let's begin with a showcase of some old favorites. Many of these have been retouched (because I'm a perfectionist to a fault--or as my boss says: "I'm a little too meticulous") in Paint Shop Pro, but I'm happy with the results. I hope you are too. I suppose, since this is acting as my archive, that we should begin in chronological order, with my first SW artworks: [image=[url]http://brettanilsson.com/art/bhunter1.jpg][/url] "Terminal Injury" (haha, get it?) This was my first Star Wars RPG character illustration, for my character, Kryss, a bounty hunter. He was drawn in markers and Prismacolor pencils, with a graphite background. [image=[url]http://brettanilsson.com/art/bhunter2.jpg][/url] Originally called "Guarding the Bounty", and now simply, "The Smuggler", This was my friends character in the RPG game we played. She was drawn in the same process as "Terminal Injury", and it should be noted that these two have managed to evade any post-production re-touch. That says something, considering they were both drawn in 1997. [image=[url]http://brettanilsson.com/art/devery.jpg][/url]... and the original: [image=[url]http://brettanilsson.com/art/originals/devery.jpg][/url] This was my first Jedi, he became my alter ego on every SW site I played on. He was originally drawn in the same manner as the first two, markers and oil-based colored pencils, but he (or more to the point, his lightsaber) was one reason I began looking into digital art and painting. Originally drawn in 1998 (I think), he has gone through several digital touch-ups, the latest being just this year (in January) with new painting techniques learned while painting "Jacen Solo - Betrayal" (see below). [image=[url]http://brettanilsson.com/art/kyle.jpg][/url]... and the original: [image=[url]http://brettanilsson.com/art/originals/kyle.jpg][/url] Admittedly, this drawing was what put me over the top in looking for painting software. The red blade just didn't go down well in colored pencil. This is Kyle, another SW RPG character. He was the last Star Wars character (unofficially*) to be drawn with markers/colored pencils. He was also very recently retouched in the face. This marks the end of one serious, if I were to break them up into media and style, so this is a logical place to end the post before it gets too terribly long. I'll post the next batch in a bit. * There was one other character I did for a friend, but I have since repainted her to be just a girl.
