New at CA.org but eager to improve, especially after some of the fantastic stuff I've seen here. Hence this sketchbook. Weekly, because I have finals coming up, and not a whole lot of time to draw, and because I don't draw as much as I should anyway. This might change in the future. I realise this thread will probably get flooded by all the other, so much cooler and better ones, but I'm persistent... or stubborn. As you will.
C&C much needed and more than welcome.
First off, some old finished stuff:
Abandon All Hope
Warcraft fanart contest. Pencils, pen, Photoshop.
Point Blank (2004)
Calo Nord from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Pen, Photoshop.
Young Blademaster (2004)
Warcraft fanart. Pencil, pen, Photoshop.
Say Cheese! (2004)
Warcraft Halloween fanart contest. Pencil, pen, Photoshop.

First referenced picture in a long while. Hadn't aimed for a perfect likeness, just for getting the basics down:
Stabilo softcolor (colored pencils).

*copy pastes from Rick Hershey's Redesign Activity*
I knew I was going to do characters rather than anything else right away. But which characters? After a bit of thinking, I decided to redesign the 'generic' Jedi and Sith concepts (if there is a generic Sith, anyway). Two sabers were supposed to be standard issue for each; moreover, one of them would have a protruding thingy, and the other a hole thingy, so that they could be joined together to form a double blade or separated at will. I didn't really like these much, so I went wacky (curved the hilts; if there were blades visible, they'd have the shape of a katana - after all, why not? ). Here are the visualisation sketches (quickly added some value only for the puproses of showing here, something like 15 minutes maximum):
But I didn't really like any of these, so I started thinking more, and then it hit me: the original Stormtroopers always seemed way too wishy-washy for me. Nothing stormy about them... and not a whole lot of troopery, either. They missed everyone, even with all those shots fired (I know, I know, plot devices), etc. The clones were a bit better, but they lacked the simplicity of the original troopers, on the other hand. So here it is, my menacing () Stormtrooper redesign (a sniper rifle and a heavy blaster attached to the backpack):
Enjoy. Or don't. But please do comment (and on the earlier pics, if you so choose)! I really need the crits!
