This likeness turned out a little better for Mr Vader I think. though I still see lots of room for improvement. Whats weird is that I thought I lost this one several times because I over-inked the thing, but was somehow able to bring it back in the painting process. Its funny how that works. I almost never scrap drawings now, because I know if I’m patient with them, eventually they’ll come out alright.
I’m going to try a few more portraits if I have time outside my freelance work. After a handful of those, I might try for an actual “Star Wars” style illustration, the way Drew Struzen makes it look so effortless. Till then, I’m having fun practicing.
