    Thanks, Becca, Mirax! [:D] I knew there was a Death Star.

    You have my sponsorship, all in the name of art ;)

    Lovely work :) How are you finding it?

    How am I finding what? :confused:

    EDIT: Random fact I just found out: 'Iella' means 'jinx' in Italian!

    The question was connected to your drawings. How are you finding drawing the characters?

    Fun! Although I figured out that Myri's eyes are out of line with her nose and mouth. :oops: But, you know, I'm still learning, and it's a good base for a 'draw this again' a bit later down the track.

    If it helps, draw faintly the basic form of the pose with basic shapes and elements as a rough guide to help align things and then go over and clean up the line work before rendering. That is how I start do things :)

    Yeah, gotta work on the frame work. I'm terrible at drawing lightly - all of my lines get heavier and heavier as I go.

    Hmm... a light blue pencil would work for the construction and then go over with the graphite. That is how it is usually done. :)

    You know what? I've never even thought of that. Why have I never thought of trying that? *starts wandering around, searching* Brain, oh brain, where have you gone?

    I'm happy when my stick figure's arms come out the same length.

    The stick figure makes up the skeleton of the figure, so that is a plus ;)

    Just add basic shapes and you have the structural form over the top...
    Stick Figure + Sculptural Form (open)

    ...and then clean up with the contours and render the tones... voila!

    Not for me, I have no artistic talent whatsoever. I will content myself to simply enjoy what those with talent can come up with.

    I am glad that you enjoy my art and I've plenty more in the works :)

    I still hold the belief that everyone can draw, just that something happened that made them stop. Just need to get on the bike again and exercise it ;)

    Thanks so much, Outrider. Not sure who my next drawing will be of... maybe Ben Skywalker, if I can find a good reference to work from. Any suggestions?

    I'd like to draw the Horn siblings as well. I've got the reference pics for them as well. Liam Hemsworth and Emily Browning. They won't look exactly like them, but that's the base I'll work from.

    EDIT: I'm going to try and work my way down to the Next Gen's next gen, if you will. So, grandchildren! YAY! [face_dancing]

    Could a rookie fly in and ask a favor? Or, come to think of it, two favors? The answers to two questions.

    1.) What ship did Stackpole say Tycho was flying in the second Death Star run? I started wondering the other day and, of course, then found myself without a copy of "Isard's Revenge". Which was maddening. The mention was a brief thing in parenthesis among the Author's Notes, I think.

    2.) Is there a slicer here to can access the Wraith fan art of Mido Kapetanovic --via Allston's site, or someplace else. I caught a glimpse of her Falynn Sandskimmer on a Russian forum. Terrific. I'd love to know how she visualizes Runt.

    Whyren's Reserve offered as reward.

    I think the Tycho thing was mentioned in an earlier book.

    It was an A-Wing - if memory serves, the second to detach and lead TIEs off on a wild-Nuna chase.
