    Holy Moly!! What a gorgeous painting, J_E!! =D= I'm particularly loving the light--the way it's highlighting the robes and hands and his gnarly face--just beautifully done! It's going to be great to see this one finished--can't wait!

    Hey falcon,

    thanks bud, really appreciate it. It is finished though, it's a loose painting, going to be going through manay characters over the next few months :)

    Cheers again,

    Jonny :D

    Whoa, those are awesome! The details in both completely blew me away! Very nice job! =D=

    Your style of coloring in PS is exactly what I'm interested in learning. Do you have any tips to get someone learning on the right path?

    Hey Solo!

    Thanks man, I really appreciate it. I'd be more than happy to help you out. I've attached an image of the Obi progress that I saved during it's process.

    [image=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v393/jonathanmc/obiwanprogress.jpg]

    To begin with I always start out blobby, getting all the colours and lighting in first to block everything out. From there I begin to refine areas, shift things round if out of line and fix up the colouring and lighting. As everything becomes more refined I begin to add sharper shading but leave it with a sketchy look, and I build on that as I go to build up the textures.

    If I can help out anymore give me a shout bud, and anyone else too :D

    Cheers again!!

    Jonny :)

    Thanks so much for that tutorial! [:D]

    I looked it over last night before heading to bed and I need to try it out sometime. Just a question on layers - did you lay out each color/detail on a new layer or how did you work that out?

    Burning Anakin is a great represenation of that haunting and disturbing scene in ROTS.

    Oh my...

    These latest paintings are unbelievable, Jonathan! =D==D=

    I totally agree with grad here: the intensity of emotion is absolutely raw: Anakin's uncontrolled fury is right there for us to see...it's chilling, and really takes me back into the duel and its gruesome end... **shudders**

    Beautiful capture of likeness in each one, and I can't get over the light in them both--stunning! I feel the heat and fire of Mustafaar in both!

    Amazing work! =D==D=
