    Thanks for all of the comments :)


    _Sublime_Skywalker_ >I'm not planning to redo any of these at a larger scale (any time soon, at least >_> ). I do have some larger pieces in the works, but, I'm kind of on a sketch card kick at the moment. o_O

    But you really have talent. I like your bold lines and the way to create shadows.

    Wow, it's been a while, hasn't it? :rolleyes: [face_whistling]

    Belated thanks for the comment, AzureAngel2 :)

    Here's my latest SW piece:
    'Going somewhere, Solo?'

    It looks as if you have an extra "http://" in your link. You may want to fix that. ;)

    And very nice Greedo! Sketch cards are addictive little things but they can also be a pain with the small space you're given to work with. You filled that space out nicely. :)

    Ha! Great drawing of good ol' Greedo! =D= This is such good timing, as I'm now reading "Millennium Falcon," which delves into the ship's checkered history in much detail--seeing Greedo here, as he corners Solo in the cantina, is a wonderful reminder of those first moments we actually see Han and his trusty 'Falcon for the first time! Great expression (not an easy thing to render on a Rodian face, I would venture! ;) ), and a terrifice likeness! All on such a tiny space--you sketch card artists amaze me, truly! :D

    Jolly good up-dates. I like your SW things as much as the Indy ones. The lightness of your pencil lines, how good each of them reflects the character that you did.

    Hard to pick a favourite though.

    Nicely done, Jason! It's always a treat to look at sketch cards.

    Out of the new bunch of cards, I really like the Tusken. Nice pose and the cross-hatching helps to convey the rough texture of the robe and mask.

    Nice new additions there--I'm especially fond of the cantina musician! You capture these images very cleanly and with a nice economy of line--well done! :D

    They look great, Jason! The montage idea wasn't an easy task to undertake on such a small space, but you pulled it off!

    It's great to see you contributing to the cause! :)

    Very nice!! I love how you used shading and tyhe detail in the pieces.

    Very cool new work--and I'm with our erstwile Moderator--I'm so impressed with anyone that can do work like this on such a small scale (I'd go blind within 10 minutes, trying to cram all of that onto a CARD! lol!)! And kudos on doing some charity work, too--props to you! :D

    Great additions! Nice detail work in the Chewie and I love the placement of the Jawa card. It makes things a little more interesting. ;)

    I like the boldness of your pencil lines. That makes the figures so vibrant and alive, sparkling with energy.

    I agree with both the comments above: very nice framing on the Jawa piece--it gives a wonderful tension to the piece; and the Chewbacca portrait is wonderful (all that fur has to give you dreadful heartburn trying to draw it, tho! lol! :D )! Your use of crosshatching is very well-done, too! *nodding*

    I would not like to get killed by that guy. He looks very arrogant and indifferent to his surroundings. =D=

    Great skretch! =D=

    He almost looks a little sleepy here! Dozin' before the blastin' I suppose! Great work on the helmet--all the divots and scuffs on it are wonderful and tell a story about this soldier's life; his oft-broken nose does the same thing! Wonderful work yet again!

    I'm always in awe of people who can work at such miniscule scale... huge respect for that! You do a really great job with the likenesses, and I love how you portray loads of different characters and motives from the SW universe!

    Eeee, it's Wedge! [face_love] They both look great, you did a really good job in capturing their likenesses (and I always find that SO hard with Luke!). Wedge is my favourite though. Nice job at getting him right in the middle of the action, love how you sketched his mouth. =D=
