    Hello everyone! I like to consider myself an amateur artist. I like to draw Starships, Ahsoka Tano, Twi'leks and any Star Wars characters that do not have hair (I can't render hair at all)!
    I will post updates here as I make them, I hope everyone enjoys what they see as I consider this my finest work I'm sure things will only go down hill from here. :D

    nice work=D==D= and seeing how you have to use all those shapes to make a pic.

    You don't give yourself enough credit. I've seen your other works, and they are great.

    Wow you've seen some of my work? That's kind of cool. I know my art is ok but in the words of the great Qui Gon Jin "There's always a bigger fish!" :)
    Thanks though I really appreciate your post it made my day.

    Vader's helmet always looks great with red highlights. Something about it just personifies coolness.

    I also like the eerie feeling that you created with this helmet.

    I agree, Red on shiny Black is epic win!



    Thank you but I have to give most of the credit to the guy who conceptualized it on the card first. I just kind of reinvented the wheel. :)

    Stunning and WOW that's taking a lot of time. The same is with old fashioned material like oils and pencils

    Thanks and yeah it is a long time. I lost inspiration on it early in though so that killed the interest for me a bit.

    I know exactly how it is to lose inspiration, mate, but it returned to me this week. Sometimes it takes longer, but it will eventually come back to you.

    Oh yeah I quite agree. I think this was the longest dry spell I've ever had though.

    a nice twist on the saga and beautiful colours and lights accenting the action

    Thank you very much. I took the opportunity with this image to play with a thought I had that maybe lightsabers might resort to a single tone of color when penetrating a sufficiently dense and resistant material. Had I developed the story further it would have involved a far more powerful type of saber created for the sole purpose of breaching any possible "solid" defenses that might be in place to protect the Emperor.

    ...Plus I always wanted to draw the force negating creature on his chair. :D

    Wow, all your stuff is amazing! I especially love your ysalamir (though I'm partial to creatures). And I like that you include the breakdown of all the different pieces that go into each work. I would love to see more!

    Thank you very much I loved drawing the little ysalamir and more on the way!
