    Great job colouring these! They're very lively and have great contrast.

    That comic is hilarious. I always wondered why Sith only seem to use red lightsabers. Maybe they get a discount?

    LOL! I love the idea of Obi Wan throwing Force lightning, with Anakin just pouting there beside him! Great work!

    Anakin's face is hysterical in that one and the little 'Blue and Ghostly' caption for Qui-Gon made me snicker.

    Besides being funny, it's a very sound drawing. Nice work on the robes and stylizing the likenesses.

    Oh, yeah! [face_laugh] Qui Gon's face is almost a "now you know what it's like to have a padawan of your own, eh?" expression, and goes perfectly with the other two: Obi Wan with his "Oh, *****" and Anakin with that "google-eyed" look! You're so good at capturing an expression! =D= And the drape of the clothing and the shading are great. Another wonderful piece (and we can always seem to count on a laugh when we come to your thread--God Bless you for that! [face_laugh] )!

    Awr. :3 I'm glad I can make you laugh. I honestly didn't like the coloring on the last piece, it was like WHEE FAST DONE PUBLISH TO INTERNET >_< but... ohwell.

    Here's a little something... Wow. Kenu. Hasnot. Shaded. A. Sketch. In. Very. Long. Time. With. Real. Graphite. O_O

    Beautiful shading! I like the mixture of smooth areas of shading and some crosshatching; it adds a lot of visual interest.

    Wow, I kinda just started looking at the Fan Art board. I really like your style-it's kinda messy but in a controlled fashion. You really carry it well :).

    I like what I'm seeing so far, Kenu.

    Are all of the pieces in this thread drawn by you or are some just colored by you?

    Also, do you use a tablet?

    Keep it up,

    That last picture of yours is excellent. Nice figure drawing, nice depiction of cloth (I always find that hard).

    Wow, Kenu, this last piece is fabulous! I agree with what everyone's said so far, about the wonderful shading, excellent figure drawing and sense of movement--it's just beautiful! If you haven't done this in a long time, I think you should pick up the pencils and have a go at it again--you're very talented with it! I'd just love to see what else you could come up with, because this is truly excellent! (I'm a hopeless fan of pencil drawing, tho, so I guess you can't really go by me! ;) ) Well done!

    Aw you guys. You're so supportive. I wub woo!

    I do all my own coloring and inking and whatnot, and YES I use a tablet! I did mouse painting for a long time, but now I completely recommend the tablet. I don't do alot of real media work anymore, like the graphite, but I do miss it. :) Thanks so much for your comments on the clothing! Cloth and hands are my big challenge right now.

    Lol, I love your comics, especially the most recent one you threw up. Those captions go so perfectly with their expressions. It's always nice to see someone with a good sense of humour too. [face_laugh]

    --- "Cloth and hands are my big challenge right now." ---

    Well, you seem to be doing an excellent job in that department, in my opinion. I like the style in which you draw - all the strokes really bring out the image. Not just with the pen sketch, but even with the drawing of the "Master and Padawan" from prior.

    Cloth is quite evil. I feel your pain.

    Ballpoint is a difficult medium to get a handle on, so nice work here. I particularly like the boots... I'm not sure why. I think it's the minor stylization of the size of the feet compared to the size of the ankles; it makes the character seem like he has a very solid stance.

    Excellent work here. I especially liked the comicy image with Qui-Gon (well, because he's my favourite, no da) - but also because of the colours and lineart combination to give exactly the perfect look to the piece. I hope to see more from you soon - in ANy of the mediums you've already used!

    Sorry I didn't comment yesterday - I meant to, but my Internet hasn't been running at full speed recently.

    More soon! Please!

    Too funny, Kenu. ;) And just when I thought I'd seen every possible version of the "Sith" thing. Plus, I love Gwen Stefani, so that helped too. Great job.
