Fun With My Wacom

Orv Desktop Background

I’ve been having some serious fun as of late with my Intuos Art Pad. Honestly, I haven’t done much drawing since my Alien Sketch back in July. I didn’t realize how much I was missing ;) Well, ever since getting back into Star Wars, I’ve had an urge to do more drawings…well, actually drawings have been asked of me and I’ve happily obliged.

I’m pumped and ready to hone my skills even more…From these sketches I can tell that I’m pretty rusty but things will come around! Here are a few of the other drawings/crests I’ve done as of late:

Drawing: Mejas Doto, Dark Jedi Master

Here’s an image I did for a member of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood, a Star Wars club on-line with a focus on computer gaming, writing, and roleplaying. Anyways, this member collects images of his character and thus commissioned one from me. Here’s the final product:

Older Mejas Doto

Along the way, I saved various steps I took while creating the image…its interesting to look back and see the progress.

Mejas Doto Step 1
Initial sketch, general layout for the character.

Mejas Doto Step 2
Darkened in certain areas, defining key parts of the Jedi Master. Created the face and head markings.

Mejas Doto Step 3
Finished basic darkening, began coloring in the skin.

Mejas Doto Step 4
Defined clothing and colored under-tunics.

Mejas Doto Step 5
Defined cloak and clothing even more and continued coloring.

Mejas Doto Step 6
Finished clothing definition and coloring.

Mejas Doto Step 7
Thickened lines, shortened middle finger, filled in gaps, added a black background.

Mejas Doto Step 8
Fixed hand and added Force lightning…blue lines, Gaussian blur, faded brush strokes.

Mejas Doto Step 9
Drew lightsaber and added blade. Defined right hand a little more.

MejasDoto
Original final rendition with sweet red background.

Older Mejas Doto
Re-done final rendition…aged Mejas Doto appropriately…he’s no teenager as the previous version implied.

Thats all she wrote! The picture took about 6 hours on my Wacom Tablet. Much fun was head and it was good to break the tablet in again! Its been far too long.
