The end of normal

Ok, so if I did a star wars story it would be about a couple of femaie jedi who fall in love in a chaste aesthetic kind of way. All about the meeting of souls through the force during the final stages of the clone wars. As fear grips the jedi council the pair are accused of falling from the way of the jedi. Pushed into fleeing they desert pursued by agents of the council  who believe they are in league with the sith behind the conflict…
About halfway through the clone army would turn on the jedi and the chase changes from a secret fleeing into the shadows of the empire kind of thing into a helter skelter ride from an entire galaxy out to kill them. Much like a thelma and louise across the stars.
The idea would be to play on the ideas of whether love being a weakness is true or not. We hear a lot of love going sour and being a corrupting force in other stories in the starwars universe. So what if it remains true and lifts us to a better place and however bad love can make a jedi, it can also raise them higher. It’s simply the gamble that the council can not, will not make.
So happy Valentines. View Larger

WIP colouring this is taking forever.. I still need to settle on the pallet I want before I really get into the depth (shadows) and and shine of the thing. 


Your colouring is fantastic and unlike any other artist I've seen, do you have a special method? And do you just follow your instinct with what colours to use or is there a method beyond looking at reference? from lewisjlondon

I generally don’t look at much reference when colouring. I’m pretty awkward to be honestI just go with what looks good. Though after the first pass I tend to shift the colour balance of everything until I like it more. I find this helps tie the colours together and allows quick experimentation on my part. 

It’s not the quickest method overall but I find more surprises and happy accidents this way. Things I would not have thought or known how to do at the start of the piece.


As an artist, what is the most frustrating thing for you to draw? from -imaginarythoughts-

Everything. I mean I struggle to draw everything and if anything comes easy to me I am suspicious of it. Though this tends to be what drives me on. Finding something frustrating in my work and conquering it. I used to hate backgrounds and environments when i started so I made myself go at it hammer and thongs. Though now it’s more human interaction, that spark between two characters that shows they’re really interacting. This is what I’m working on at the moment.
