    Creating B-Wing art: "Enemy ships in Sector 47!"

    I'm thinking of adjusting the composition slightly. I'd like to emphasize the presence of other rebel ships coming around, as it's not just the B-wing on its own. I think in addition to the GR-75 fire ship, I'll go with either another B-wing or an X-wing or two in the bottom right hand corner, which should balance out the blank space and give more of a frenetic space battle feel. Possibly directly below the B-wing. Frenetic but not overcrowded, is the key point.

    blocking in colour, I'll update the main page once the first pass is done. I think a very subtle red->blue colour shift neatly fits with rebellion and empire. it's a little bit of artistic license but the red will mostly come from the glow of the exploding ship that the B-wing is dodging. Poor GR75 never stood a chance. I'm gonna go with the whole concept that the GR75s at endor were there as fire ships, loaded with explosives, so it should justify the size of the explosions.

    updated with backdrop. Next up will be first pass on the GR-75.

    starting to get those star destroyers in there in the background: +edit+ probably makes more sense to put the screencap with the SSD in there instead of just the SDs..

    updated with first pass of colour blocking. will probably refine the blocking a bit more, because its in space there's a lot of very soft transitions in the background, but the foreground has lots of hard edges so getting the balance is trickier I'm finding?

    updated with lineart. I don't want to get too bogged down in details on the GR-75, I'll play it by ear as I fill in the colours.
  7. That's very kind, however at the moment I'm not able to take on any work. I've got a street art show I'm prepping for in July and about 10 pieces I have to finish before then (planes and landscapes etc.). For the moment, it's nice to be able to work on a few free projects when I need a break from watercolour and gouache :).

    lines are just about there. I have to decide on cast shadows. I think I've got rim lighting from the explosion behind, but then other than that there's a soft blue glow from the right from endor. I'll drop this in as greyscale shadows next, throw in a few lines for the ships, then start putting in base colours.

    pass #2 coming along, just about 75% there until the first picture of the interceptor thread.

    here's the process I use to get to linework. I smudge over some rough shapes of darkness to get a feeling for where I might want forms, then I start working in lines. A lot of this is just redrawing bits of cool looking things off references. This stage things change a lot and get shuffled around.
  11. Hi everyone, I'm back! Going to try and put in place some of the stuff I learned on the last one, this time with B-wings. Someone was asking for what came before the lineart, so I've started here at the barebones sketch. I'll drop this down to 25% opacity and start drawing in the lineart with the line tool and a brush to clean it up, I learned from the last one that having really well-thought out shapes helps enormously on knowing where to put highlights and shadows. I'll do the same format as the last one, showing each step at a relatively clear break point. If you missed the interceptor post, you can see it here: Preliminary sketch: First pass lineart (of 2): Second pass lineart: Colour blocking: Backdrop finished for the moment, minus TIE fighters
  12. I did one of Rhymer a few months back, although I won't be able to do it up as a card or post the high-res because it was done for someone's gift.
  13. hm, good idea, I sized it so I can squeeze two in there on a slight diagonal for the linked actions, but I can try enlarging it a smidge. I wondered about that but since it's the marginal case I settled for doing 5, which covers charges or the force, and in cases where there are multiple arcs I'll stack them outwards to the right I think. I'll try both, I'd rather settle for larger numbers and fewer empty circles on cards if possible.
  14. here's a test card for x-wing 2.0: I will probably keep tinkering with this interface as I get used to the new 2.0 specs, but this is the general idea for a card with a template that is broadly accessible for all pilot cards.
  15. I've started an instagram account here: https://www.instagram.com/autosketches/ I can't seem to upload larger images, but at the very least I'll be able to use it as a repository of what i've done along with links to the material.
