Skywalker by jackieocean Skywalker by jackieocean
A portrait of Luke Skywalker, from Star Wars. It's so much easier for me to find decent reference images for Star Wars fanart now that I have the DVDs. I actually haven't ever made any decent Star Wars pictures, save for a few that you can find in my gallery here. The old school Star Wars trilogy is definitely my fav, and even though Luke is not my favorite character from the original trilogy (Han Solo all the way, baby!) I thought that he would be a good place to start in an attempt to do nicely finished Star Wars picture.

This was originally drawn with a brown colored pencil on watercolor paper and then I painted a series of ink washes using standard black ink. It gives me a helpful base to work from. I then scanned it and all of the coloring was done in Photoshop with my tablet.

You can see the uncolored version of this right here: [link]

Full view is strongly suggested. ;)

Completed in April of 2006.

This is the first of three pictures in my series of heroes from the classic Star Wars trilogy. These are the other two illustrations:
- Leia
- Solo

OMG, my younger sister just saw this and she was like
":eyepopping:Aww! I wanna get him and never let him go:jawdrop:".
And I thought, that his face expression perfectly fits to her fan-girl-behaviour...
So I like this picture... --> :+fav:
And keep on your great work!

It's as if I'm looking at Mark Hamill himself. The shading and coloring just make me appreciate this picture a lot. The eyes look well drawn and realistic. I also like the background, too. Nice job.

Han Solo was my favourite too, however Luke came close second.

This because while Luke was a bit shallow with character, he needed that character to be the main antonogist and allow some focus on the other characters ;)

And yeah: The old school starwars trilogy is by far the best! Heck: Luke may be shallow but i think his character was portraited a lot better then Annie :)

Oh well, the new trilogy wasn't that bad either, the story was interesting enough :)
