Aayla vs. Talon

Final pencils for this pinup of two alien women from the Star Wars universe. (I posted the original digital sketch here.) I sent it off to Mark McKenna, who's going to ink it and submit it, by invitation, to the art show for this year's Star Wars Celebration convention.

 Like always happens when I try to return to my comic-book roots, I had a terrible attack of anxiety once I got done with the initial sketching and started applying HB pencil to bristol board. But you know, halfway through working on it, I felt that I was really turning a corner, like I was finally transcending the horrendous struggles I used to wage against my own artistic limitations. Then when it was 90% done I had to stop myself from trashing it and starting over, and after I sent it off I wanted to throw out all my pencils and find some other line of work. Pretty much just like the old days.

Awesome! And just in time for "Revenge of the Fifth!"

I hope you'll keep we loyal followers updated on the progress of this piece, as well as on the final results.

Go celebrate by watching THE AVENGERS (again, if need be), why don'tcha?

Your lulls are *always* so worth it.
