Stormtrooper by Paul-Shanghai Stormtrooper by Paul-Shanghai
After the intensity of my last drawing



I needed a little 'light relief' :)

I saw this painting during my usual lunchtime google images search looking for inspiration, and just had to draw it straight away. The original had a fantastic fight scene reflection in the lenses of the Stormtrooper, I decided to fill them with a vision of Darth!

I thought a couple of hours, how wrong i was!! I reckon at least 5 hours straight through without stopping.

Another cult movie, with great characters and legendary performances (I am talking about Yoda :)) One of my favourites - hope you like this drawing also?

Usual suspects

A3 Bristol Board Smooth
Mechanical Pencil 0.3mm with 4B leads
Traditional Pencil HB and 8B graphite (my new best friend)
Tissues and blending stumps

love this picture but be honest, does it make a good print? In my experience pencil drawings don't come out well but I'd love to get this as a christmas present for someone. I'll trust you if you say it does come out well, as it is absolutely fantastic, but it's the sort of thing I get nervous about.

To be honest I have no idea what it looks like when DA have printed it - experience of my other work that has been brought as prints from DA has been very positive - I have no reason to expect that this would be any different.

I am glad I added Vader - it was a bit of a risk as I am not too used to improvisation, but glad how it came out :)

The mask alone looks great too, but the addition of Vader in the reflection is awesome! :la:
