Back on my bullshit, aka making star wars pictures

Shaping up to be a good one, I think once the highlights come in it's gonna look awesome (because they always do once the highlights come in)

Show thread

And time to work on another one because what the fuck else am I going to do

Show thread

little update, the highlights on this one might take a bit longer than usual

Show thread

I'm just gonna keep making these until I fall asleep and then start again in the morning

Show thread

I'm going to keep changing the colour scheme for this one until the end probably, but he's gonna be nice I think

Show thread

I think the colour scheme is probably gonna work out really nicely on this one, the mustard yellow works better than expected

Show thread

Finished the boy and I'm very happy with how he turned out

Show thread

I changed the background on the first one I made of these because it shows off the actual ship a lot better.

I love making these and I have a lot of time on my hand anyway

Show thread

I will keep making these until the end of time and nobody can stop me
This one is gonna take forever though

Show thread

Pretty happy with how the snow speeder turned out!
At this rate I'm gonna run out of audiobooks to listen to while making these, gotta get me some more

Show thread

Next one is gonna be the child from The Mandalorian and I can already tell I'm gonna love it so much when it's done

Show thread

going very very well so far, still missing the highlights and colour balancing and stuff but I already love the child so much

Show thread

Doing Jango Fett next, because I love doing shiny surfaces in this style and also he has a neat design, and also my best friend loves him and he's basically my main audience

This one's gonna be tricky to get right though

@FuchsiaShock Eventually I will have to make one with the child as well

@FuchsiaShock thank you! I love making them and I've gotten really comfortable with the style since I made the original posters

@sousaphone how come the palate on the left goes away over time with your art?

are those colors you mean to incorporate as you go forward?

@adasauce yeah, I usually make a colour palette for these that doesn't stay in the final image, but basically all of these use five shades of colour (and maybe 3-4 for an additional colour like the orange in this case) and it's good to keep them handy on a separate layer. They usually change a bit over time though, I almost never get the palette right on the first try

@adasauce Basically, in this case I've already done the orange bits and the darkest colour, now I add the shadow colour (second darkest), then the lighting and the brightest highlights

@sousaphone Man this whole thread is fucking amazing. Phenomenal work!
