    Ah! There's the issue! Thank you very much! I feel like such a newb for not being able to figure it out! :p

    Also, thank you for the kind comments! I will keep working through the summer and see what happens!

    Okay, it's been a while, but I've finally hit a lull in all my deadlines to actually post some art. I'm hoping to have some new pieces to share soon (I have a lot of projects on my table at the moment), but for now, here is a preview of some of the cards I did for Star Wars Chrome Perspectives that were approved and posted on the Topps Facebook page:

    Nice to finally see someone really nail Luke's likeness. That's rare. Well done! =D=

    Welcome back! :D

    Thank you again for showing some of the works you have been producing, always lovely to see them!

    Does this mean that you have a chance to work on your own personal art projects before the next set of deadlines happen?

    @Cushing's Admirer and @earlybird-obi-wan - thank you so much!! [:D]

    @Corellian_Outrider - that is certainly the goal! I'm taking a breather from sketch cards to create some new pieces and to build up my portfolio for a potential gig coming up next year. I know a lot of people like to see the progress of a piece, so I'll be sure to post up WIPs as I move forward. Thank you for your kind comments! I really appreciate it! :)

    @HanSolo29: I wonder what new works came to life the past months... [face_thinking]

    This was done in copic marker, prismacolor pencils and some dabs of the jellyroll pen.

    Welcome back Steph!! :)

    You cannot go wrong with more Solo! I really love the expression, the contrast and also the rendering you've captured in this piece. The hair, the folds/creases in the clothes and an impression of the material too. Very nicely done.

    Giving this a big 'ole bump!

    With Celebration right around the corner, I wanted to share the concept I submitted for consideration into the Art Show. Unfortunately, it wasn't chosen, but hey, there will always be next time! It only gives me more time to spruce up the portfolio. ;)

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

    That is beautiful! You have done such amazing work for this piece!

    I am sorry to hear that it was not selected for Celebration but you are definitely right about adding to your portfolio and there is always more opportunities. Onward and upwards! I cannot wait to see what you are working on next :D

    Thank you, @Corellian_Outrider! :)

    It's always a blow to not have your work accepted, but it's part of the business. You are absolutely right in regards to staying positive and moving onward. I already have plans to really work on this style and see what if I can pump out a few more poster-like images.

    I also need to be more active in here! :p I have quite the backlog that I hope to post here in the coming weeks.

    You're welcome! :)

    I always love seeing your work and I really feel you have taken things to the next level with this one. I love what you did with the composition and the colours, there is almost a dream quality to it.

    Yes please! :D I also know exactly what you mean about a backlog :p time just slips away so fast.
