Star Wars: On The Front Lines Portraits

I forgot I hadn't collected all of the Star Wars portraits from On The Front Lines by Daniel Wallace. So here.

The book came out really well. You can pick one up at your local bookstore, or if you are lazy, go Here: Star Wars: On the Front Lines

Productive Procrastination Once Again


I'm in the middle of promotion. Lots of research, emails, typing, etc.... It's exciting and sometimes fun. I try to make it entertaining for myself. I've been at it for awhile now, so today I decided to take a break for a few hours. This is what happened.

Whenever I do these quick little portraits, I try to find something new to try out. A technique, palette, composition, etc.. This was an effort to try the watercolor brushes, in Painter.  I found some that I really enjoyed actually. Some.....not so much. I was trying to stylize my drawing a little too.

I've always been a fan of the Dragonlance world. This is Raistlin Majere. He was always my favorite character in the books (and everyone elses too). Don't worry, he's not jaundiced. It was some magic misfortune.

Ok, back to emails.

Productive Procrastination Again

I had busy work to do last week, and didn't get alot of art done. So I did this over the weekend to quiet that nagging voice in my head. The art voice anyway. The other voices require different things. One would like a cigarette. One would like alcohol, another would like a Big Mac, yet another would like a human sacrifice. They really do keep me busy. Enjoy (or don't).

Oh. Some of you (out of the 5 people that read this) would like to know particulars. 2 hour (or so) painting, using exclusively Painter 11 for this one, from a photo. Yes. "Reference Used"
