Star Wars : The Force Awakens : Episode Cute

What a sorry year for posts on this blog!  Since my first post was Star Wars-based, it seems only fitting (and more so timely) that my last post is about the new movie, Star Wars: Episode VII : The Force Awakens!
If you haven't seen the movie, yet, I cannot recommend it enough.  Regardless of the politics of anything in the Star Wars franchise (old trilogy versus new, new director drama, etc.), it's just a really fun, enjoyable movie.  I left feeling I got more than my money's worth.

Some behind the scenes stuff: As always, I have to start with some sketches.
This was especially important, since I'm not familiar with these characters.  In fact, I hadn't seen the film when I drew this, so I wasn't even sure who the main characters were, secondary, et cetera.  Research is important, folks! Then I figured out a composition, reminiscent of my earlier Star Wars post.
All done digitally in Photoshop.  Made some changes to it:
And then started cleaning it all up:
Each character was drawn on a different layer so I could tweak the layout as needed.

Everything was done on the fly for this one, with little pre-planning.  All drawn in one day, from sketch to final.  Just a passion project to let off some steam after a long time drawing Smurfs for work.  You may notice that I removed General Hux because he ultimately looked like a character just floating in the background.  I was going to add some new Stormtroopers in his place, but it got to be a bit top-heavy.

Hopefully you enjoy it, and May the Force be With You!

See you in 2016!

Star Wars!!!

Wait a minute...I've never posted any Star Wars drawings?!?  No no no...time to remedy that.
Pew pew pew!!  It all started with some sketches, first from memory...
 And then based on research...
Not too bad; I wasn't completely off.  And then all of the following occurred...




And now this blog has some Star Wars drawings on it.

...oh wait.  It already did, here.  Oh well.  Disregard this post.
