More Tiny Soldiers

Same deal as before. All of these guys are products of lunch sketching.

Tiny Soldiers

Seriously. They are tiny, maxing at about 2 to 2 and 1/2 inches, tops.

Fear them.

Straight Pilot .25 ballpoint and some white out.

Send in the Troops

Here's the latest in the line of unplanned ink sketches. This was done with the trusty old .25 Pilot ballpoint, with my Pitt brush marker for the line thickness. However, all the of the sketch was not done at the same time, or on the same page. I started doodling out the troopers first. They take up an entire sketchbook page (hence the unplanned part). I wanted to put them in some sort of context, so I did the ramp and the rest of the scene on another page, and assembled it all in Photoshop. I also resorted to a Cheap Trick (tm), but I think it adds some extra depth the scene needed.

Too Jin-Roh/Stormtrooper/Vader? Answer: Yes.

Starship Sketches: Part 4

Imperial Inspection.

This image is a continuation of my recent themes and working methods. I used .25 Pilot Ballpoint straight to my book, no pencil. I did some minor line cleanup and correction in Photoshop, and added color. Perhaps I'll do some character work next, but I have to admit, starships are a ton of fun.
