It was bound to happen. Got that feeling for another run at the Star Wars universe. Saw Episode IV last weekend on Spike tv and got inspired to do a piece. Damn that's a great movie! Never gets old. Ever. I've been doing illustrations in the morning, and I find it actually helps me get mentally ready for the day ahead. So I worked on this one last week. I find the studio in my room lights much better in the morning with natural light, so I tend to want to work on pieces earlier in the day. Plus I'm not in that tired mode after a long day of work and having to do ink illustrations after ain't cool. I sprayed some fixative on the piece this morning and it goes into my done pile. Thanks for checking out the piece guys! (Medium: Inks and acrylics. Size: ~11"x 17" on Crescent illustration board.)

A while ago, I was comissioned to work on a Death painting for a super cool collector up in New Zealand. Thanks Matt for getting me a chance to work on it! Death is one of my favorite characters in the Sandman universe, and it was a real treat for me to do a rendition of it. Here is part of the whole scan of the rough pencils that served as a prelim to the painting. I don't feel like I did the character justice, and will definately have to take another stab at it in the future.
