Monsters like Sith shouldn't ever be completely attractive. The longer I worked on this one (only about 3-4 hours) the less I liked it as a pin-up. I think I stayed a little too true to the subject (so for that I really like it) and didn't pull it back to the series enough. That's ok. Just means I get to work on another Sith at some point.

Obviously, it's live! I know this site isn't as "designer" as the last (no white space?! oh no!) but it felt really bland to me. I needed something that worked for me better. You'll welcome the fact my face will no longer be on the site. It's going to be science fiction based from now on. This change also mirrors my transition from illustrator to comic artist. It doesn't mean I won't be doing illustrations but that my focus has shifted to where my heart really is. That's what's most important.
There is one bug on the blog (can you find it?) that I'll iron out when I get the time but the site is 100% go. The links from my site have been moved to the blog for easier updating and tracking. I'm also planning on making more use of the blog showing process and WIP.
Now I'm going to get back to that Star Wars series for HEROES. If anyone would like a print you'll find me at the SCAD table this year. I may also be hanging out from time to time to see how my students (Pat Bollin, Allen Spetnagel, Doug Dabbs, and Cara McGee) are doing at the Temple of Cartoon Mojo table in artist alley.

Upon waking, the arm on the Twi'lek I had drawn really wasn't working for me so she got a new one. I went a little variation happy on the color too. This is only half of them. Now I'm seeing what works and what doesn't for this series so don't feel this is as successful as the TD. Still, it was fun enough.
Mandalorian, Clonetroopers, Sith, Nobility, Rebel Soldier, Imperial Officer, KOTOR, Biker Scout, Space Pirate, Stormtrooper, X-Wing Pilot, and more are on my list of to-dos for this. Can you think of more?
I've been needing some completely brainless, fun work to de-stress a bit so these Star Wars pin-ups (cuz what could be more brainless and fun?) were just what I needed. I'm not going for overtly sexual. It's just shy of classic too. I just want them to be fun and so far it's working. This Jedi Twi'lek will have multiple colored versions to play around with all the differing shades of skin they can have. Stay tuned for that.

Happy Star Wars Day! It's my favorite day of the year for many reasons and this is just one of them. I decided to make a fun Star Wars pin-up for it. I'll have it colored in the next day or two as time allows. This is one Sandtrooper those Rebels only wish they could hit! HA!
