Star Whores

This was a great topic Don! There are so many characters to draw from. A great turn out this week with some new recruits too!


Here's my paint job on the "Dengar and the girls" piece. Originally I was thinking real chocolately browns and baby blues for the girls. I still think that would be cool. I think the more I got into it, the more I was trying to create some sorta contrast with some hot colors. I dunno, I guess that felt "gangsta" to me. One thing I didn't like about the sketch is how short the girls' legs were. I shoulda lengthened them from the knees down in Photoshop. I got so far into coloring though I forgot about it. And then the costumes had these sheer leg parts that weren't turning out to my liking. The solution was to crop it! The squarer composition I ended up liking better anyway so I don't feel too bad. Kinda reminds me of an album cover.

I had another quick idea for an IG-88 image. That droid is so stiff it's funny imagining him doing anything. I did this one pretty fast and comparitively there's actually a lot more I like about it than my Dengar. I'm still really drawn to flat art. Just goes to show, time doesn't necessarily equal quality. And personally, I can feel just as safistfied, if not more, with something quick.

I'll try to post some development sketches on my own blog tonight. The girlies I started drawing were horrid...

I actually agree~ I like the second illustration than the first......but that's not to say the first doesn't look good, which it truly does..., it's the simplicity of the second that wins me over!

peep~

Mr. Risetto your Ghetto Blaster is freaking awesome. A little bit of Ragnar influence and a whole lot of killer simplistic design. Ghetto Blaster rocks!

Very nice Bob. The IG piece is fun! Wearing a viking helmet? I suppose that's ghetto these days. And is wearing a big clock around your neck what all the kids are doing? I'll visit timex on my way home. Your work inspired me to do a quick graphic art piece - the bounty hunter droid is such a great subject!
