Daily Sketch

Daily Sketch - Kaminoan

txkink asked me to draw my take on the Kaminoans from Star Wars Episode 2. No problem, here it is. The pointy blow-hole thing on his head is added by me, since I figured they are a water going race and use that for calling out to each other with sound underwater much like a whale might.

Are you blogger dreaming of space? You can get there for free:)

Most of us will never go to space - at least, not for a decade or so. But while we may not be able to go on a space walk or bounce around in zero-G, the prospect of being able to send something into the Great Beyond sounds like a decent consolation.

IntoSpace.org is hoping to make that happen for a mere $2.

The site is offering a deal that is reminiscent of the Million Dollar Homepage. You pay $2 for the rights to a 0.4×0.4 inch block on a piece of paper, on which you can include a photograph, piece of text, or logo. If you purchase more than 20 blocks at once, you’re eligible for a small discount. There are around 250,000 blocks available, which means IntoSpace could potentially earn around $500,000.
original article on techcrunch

There’s a special offer for bloggers: you tell your readers about the project and go with us into space for free. Bloggers are going into space for FREE in a separate rocket (1000 seats)!

Princess Leia '80s Tribute Poster

Princess Leia '80s Tribute Poster
(Art by Craig Drake.)

For the uninitiated (or too young to remember), artist Craig Drake's "The Princess" artwork is reminiscent of the pervasive style of illustrator Patrick Nagel, whose posters and prints became fixtures of interior design during the 1980s (older fans might remember the artist's famous cover illustration for Duran Duran's Rio album from 1982). There's also a hint of the guitar-strumming vamps of Robert Palmer's classic '80s "Addicted to Love" music video.

We asked Drake what inspired him to render Leia, another '80s icon, in the era's signature style. "Like a lot of Star Wars fans having grown up in the '80s, I was exposed to some amazing signature pop culture visuals," says Drake, who suggests Nagel's style probably came closest to representing the fashion and oppulence of the '80s. "Truthfully, his style really annoyed me as a kid, but as time went on I began rediscovering his work -- his brilliantly minimalist yet bold vision of beautiful, strong women is what inspired me to illustrate Princess Leia."

Learn to Draw Captain Rex from The Clone Wars


Ever wanted to draw Star Wars characters and vehicles just like the professional comic book artists? In this step-by-step series, Star Wars artists and illustrators show you how to draw some of the most beloved characters in the saga.

Anakin Skywalker's second in command during the Clone Wars, Clone Captain Rex (CC-7567) was a freethinking and aggressive soldier's-soldier. Gruff, no-nonsense and tough as nails, Rex voiced his professional opinion to even the highest-ranking Jedi. In command of the famed 501st Clone Trooper Battalion, Rex and his men were assigned to patrol the most lawless and dangerous sectors of the galaxy within the feared Outer Rim.

Star Wars illustrator Grant Gould explains with these easy-to-follow steps on how to draw Captain Rex.

Learn to Draw Ahsoka from The Clone Wars


Ever wanted to draw Star Wars characters and vehicles just like the professional comic book artists? In this step-by-step series, Star Wars artists and illustrators show you how to draw some of the most beloved characters in the saga.

Discovered by Master Plo Koon, Ahsoka Tano is a Togruta girl who was raised in the Jedi Temple. She graduated to Padawan at an early age, in part, as an effort by Master Yoda to teach her new Master, Anakin Skywalker, a greater sense of responsibility, but it was also necessitated by the Clone Wars. Regardless the reason for her advancement, Ahsoka remained eager, almost overly so, to prove herself worthy of her status as a Padawan.

Star Wars illustrator Grant Gould explains with these easy-to-follow steps on how to draw Ahsoka Tano. Steps 1-5 are to be drawn lightly with a pencil. No pen, no dark lines. Finished lines and details will come at the end.

A female Jedi Healer

This Jedi looks a little like a character in Return of the Sith called Barriss Offee,one of the female Jedi healers who,unfortunately IMHO, didnt get alot of screen time.While I was doing it I thought it also looked a bit like Joan Collins in that movie where she played a nun.

Did you know that when Joan Collins arrived in Hollywood,she was nicknamed "The British Open",also,apparently, because of her healing powers.See?The Force really does bind the galaxy together.

Question
Is it permitted to request a certain kind of SW art from someone who (unlike myself) can draw and/or do manips? I am interested in finding someone who'd be willing to work with me for one or more SW images meant to act as illustrations or cover art for a SW story, and aren't sure how to go about finding someone who'd be willing and able to produce such art. If it's alright for me to ask here and if anyone's interested in knowing more, please let me know!

Thanks!

Star Wars Hobos Mail Art by Ape Lad

(Envelope art by Adam Koford -- Ape Lad)

I sure miss getting regular old-fashioned mail. In an age where everyone communicates through texting and email, it seems that Mail Art is becoming a lost ... well... art.

So I asked artist and illustrator Adam Koford (also known on the Internets as Ape Lad) if he'd be interested in a mail art swap with me, and lo and behold this masterpiece arrived today.

Adam is known for his own creation -- The Laugh-Out-Loud Cats -- as well as a fascination with hobos. So he merged those characters with a few Star Wars characters you might recognize acting as hobos in this set of images below.

Drawing Manga-style Battle Padmé


Ever wanted to draw Star Wars characters and vehicles just like the professional comic book artists? In this step-by-step series, Star Wars artists and illustrators show you how to draw some of the most beloved characters in the saga.

Graphic storytelling is a respected and centuries-old art form in Japan, and since the end of World War II, comic books -- known in Japan as "Manga" -- have remained the country's dominant medium of entertainment. And over a period of at least the last twenty years, Manga have become increasingly popular with international and especially North American audiences. While every Manga artist has their own artistic flare, you can definitely see similarities in the style as a whole.

The biggest difference you'll notice in the way Manga is drawn from comics in the Western World is the enormous eyes that the characters all have. With larger than life highlights, and refined detail, the contrast in shape and value really make the eyes "pop." While this can often make the characters appear child-like, it also opens the door to making expressions and moods visually interesting.

Here our own Star Wars illustrator Matt Busch explains with these easy-to-follow steps on how to draw a Manga-style portrait of Battle Padme Amidala.

INDIANA JONES draws STAR WARS!
Fan of INDIANA JONES and STAR WARS are already aware of numerous instances in which the Indy films reference the films from the "galaxy far, far away..." (Did you know that in Temple of Doom, the sound the plane's engines make when it runs out of fuel is the same sound the Millennium Falcon makes when the hyperdrive fails?) Now, paying homage reverses in my latest How To Draw STAR WARS video!

In this episode, I dress up as the famous archeologist, (can you tell I'm having way too much fun with this?) seeking the Temple of Vader. I uncovers the mysteries of the Original STAR WARS Style D "Circus" poster, and prepare to illustrate it's bookend piece for REVENGE OF THE SITH. With the aid of Lucasfilm's Pete Vilmur, you'll see the entire process for getting a STAR WARS poster approved and the many different sketches an artist often goes through. You'll also see how I incorporate digital technology to accommodate changes to the traditional sketches.

How To Draw STAR WARS! Episode 10 of 20: Sith Circus Sketching!


You can check out the first Indy-themed episode on MySpaceTV above. As well, you can see a higher res 640 X 480 version at StarWars.com by clicking HERE. Last but certainly not least, you can also download this episode as a Quicktime movie right HERE.

Hope you enjoy!
