A few weeks ago I was commissioned to draw Admiral Trench (from The Clone Wars series), but with a TWIST.
As you may know, Trench gets seemingly killed off several times in the series, but always seems to turn back up. So, what if Trench ultimately survived the Clone Wars, and went on to fight with the good guys for once as an Admiral in the Rebel Alliance? Below is what that might have looked like:
I gave him a jacket similar to General Dodonna’s, his arms are made out of droid parts, and he’s a little bit more raggedy, and a lot more unhinged after being blown-up so many times. Wouldn’t you love to see him show up on Rebels? ✖
I started my SKETCH WARS project back in 2013 for many reasons. Two of which were to teach myself how to draw better, and to create my own style. I like to believe that I’ve come a long way on my journey.
Thus I had the idea to go back and redraw some of my more classic pieces from my Episode VII countdown just to see how much I really have grown as an artist.
I’m calling this series “SKETCH WARS: Revisited”, and the first in this series is of Ben Kenobi based on the brilliant Sideshow statue.
For opening weekend of Rogue One I had the pleasure of seeing the movie four times. If you couldn’t tell I was pretty excited for its release.
In my excitement I drew a collage drawing that contains most of the Rogue One cast. Though the movie fully met all of my expectations, my only disappoint with it is that my boy C2-B5 was like the Constable Zuvio of this film, but I prominently featured him here in my drawing.
The piece above was created by drawing the initial pencils on a piece of 110lb card stock, then copied onto a piece of bristol board where I colored it using an assortment of Copic and PrismaColor markers. It was inked using various Micron Pens.
My cousin Travis, who is currently fighting pancreatic cancer, asked me to draw his three favorite Star Wars characters for him. So as a continued effort to raise money to finding a cure I’ll be selling prints of this drawing and donating 100% of the profits to PanCan.org.
This past year my cousin was diagnosed with Stage Four Pancreatic Cancer.
So in an effort to help raise money for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, throughtout the month of September, I will be selling the original, uncolored Sketch Wars drawings that were created as part of the countdown I did leading up to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
