Luke vs Vader Corel

This is a repaint of the original color pencil drawing I did in 2018. This newer version was painted in June 2019. I really don’t know why I decided to wait this long to upload it though. Thinking about it, I still have some more I haven’t showcased yet.

The tagline I had in mind when I first created this piece was rebellious (yankii) son vs stern (military) father.

Hasta la proxima,

Star Wars art piece update IV

Currently really busy working on a big commission with three different art pieces. One of them will finally be done today. Two more to go. I’m sorry I haven’t been posting much here in a while. anyway here is an update on what I have done so far on the Star Wars drawing. I’m almost done, I just need to finish coloring Luke and Vader then adding some finishing touches.

Star Wars art piece update III

Took a couple of days to rest for a bit due to the new year. But now I will be going full force. I want to make a special drawing as the new drawing for the new year which is something I have as a tradition, for a couple of years now. It will be a bit simple, but once I’m done with that I will finish the Star Wars drawing. I’m also getting a big commission so I will be pretty busy pretty soon. School is coming soon too… man, this year is going to be amazing.

Here’s an update of what I have done so far on the Star Wars drawing.

Star Wars art piece update II

Alright, here is an update on what I have so far for this new piece I am currently working on. Christmas has now passed and some visiting relatives will be leaving soon, so I can work more without much distractions and family duties.

With that said, I would say I take the longest time to come up with an idea, and fleshing it out as a rough draft. This time I had a hard time deciding what the location would be for this drawing. Since I have made Darth Vader look more German, I decided to make Luke look like a someone from the Allies from World War II. Of course since this is all me taking liberties with the original designs, I decided to have fun with it and decided to make Luke look more like a yanki with some combat boots (inspired by the Allied soldiers). As I was finishing the drawing itself I thought, “Wait, Luke is part of the rebel alliance and yankis are rebels against society. Now it fits even better.” Aside from my personal touches they are both still Japanese influenced, this works to connect it to the original work and to give them some connection as father and son.

Now as for the location, I wanted them to be fighting on a cliff with the ocean as the background, but I also toyed with the idea of having them fighting inside a ship as if they were fighting inside the deathstar. In the end though I felt it would be better if I went with my original idea. But I did decide to add some more battles going on around them. I was a bit scared to add more things to draw because I would then have to make them fit with the whole drawing as a whole, and then there is the whole having to color them later. But I decided to to go for it anyway. It will take a bit of time and some major concentration, but if I break it down into parts I should be okay.

I wanted to use a new technique using color pastels. I am using some really cheap one’s I bought when I was in either middle school or high school, can’t even remember. They are really not that good, but I only needed them as a base that I will use to layer on top of. Don’t know if I will succeed or not. But I do feel confident I will be okay. We’ll see.

Anyway here is what I have so far. Colors are still really rough, but I will refine little by little tomorrow. Will explain the process next time (hopefully it works).
