love it Euan -- great intensity, the orange background works great and really nice pulp lighting. a small crit would have been to see a little more brush or texture in the lightsaber glow. but really nice piece. how big are the work files btw?
artofant: haw - that's great. his right eye is really well done.
barry: like the faces -- very Clone Wars and like the gag with the clone troopers bunny fingers.
douglas ladd: haw - i think you and another board member called EliottAnimated both share a love of all things Gerald Scarfe. very dynamic:-)
laseraw: i prefer the inks by themselves -- it has that woodcut look to it. and perhaps the eyes just feel a little wide apart.
bmonkey: a classic scene. i'd just suggest using harder edges to first define the shapes, then look at losing some of them so it reads more clearly. the darth vader is great -- a nice mix of styles (he reminded me of the original RM sketches). good stuff:-)
howardshum: cool - its so crisp, clean and sharp. hope you sell lots and lots of them!
mmmpig: classic scene -- love the strong silhouette.
kaiser: very cool -- his face almost looks like a sandperson. like the big, chunky saber.
alfret: lot of work in that one!. for me, the stye of each character feels a little inconsistent and its distracting from the impact of the final piece, but i really like the way you've laid them out and the bottom part is the most successful. did you colour it?
laseraw: like the bold sketches!
madhatter: interesting, but i'd stay away from those filters. they're a trap, i reckon:-)
thanks madhatter, mmmpig, stevencasidy (haw - yes, you got it), bangalore_monkey (glad you noticed that -- def important to bring in the familiar Imperial look, which worked so great in the orig movies), benfaulkner and lupin. you guys get me pumped to do more!
as for how long this took, it was 2 3 hour stints and i put together a little too, which you can access on my blog below
