This is a digital commission featuring what voice mail looks like in a galaxy far, far away.

The original line art measures 7 1/2 x 14 inches and was drawn on Bristol using Micron pens. The final artwork was colored in Photoshop CS4 using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX.

You can watch a recording of me coloring (some of) this piece on my Ustream channel here: [link]

I especially like your rendition of Ben.
This scene is perfect, a brilliant revision of the most classic beginning ever.

Short compliment version: Love it!

Long compliment: instead of doing the movies in 3D, Lucas should just hire you as a design consultant (b/c I know no one person can animate three epic movies) to help them do at least episodes 4, 5 and 6 in this way. I would so watch and buy a set if they were done this way. :)

Awww, that's sweet of you to say. :)

I've often said that Lucas should have Dave Filoni and his team redo all of the films in CGI like The Clone Wars series. I'D see the heck out of those films.

...and true :)

Yes, that's what I was thinking about when I saw the Clone Wars series. That was before you got into doing digital work, though. There's just this vibe of "something epic" and living in these pieces...one is just waiting for it to move. I hope that makes sense.

Well done.

Obi-Wan then turned to Luke with a quizzical look on his face and said, "Now why is that woman wearing bagels in her hair?"

Great looking Obi-Wan. And Luke does look hilarious with that expression. :)

I really like the stone/marble texture you have on the background. Is it a custom-texture?
