[character] Unsheathed: Portrait of Yoda (starwars: Jedi)


UNSHEATHED: cover art of Starwars: JEDI: YODA



Dear artists, i come in peace.

here is one of your most beloved little green men.

TODAY, July 21st, 2004, Dark horse comics/ Lucas books published a comic book called Starwars JEDI: YODA. the Fifth installment of Jedi series.

This book features a story about two young jedi padawans, a king of a great civilization, wicked politicians and Master Yoda, one of the greatest jedi in clone war predicament, which is beautifully written by Jeremy Barlow, And collaboratively illustrated and painted by JUJI, MIRO, and myself.

This particular version of cover art is the last thing i did for the project, but the original version was done as the benchmark peice for 40 fully rendered in digital, sequential pages.

One day spent for the original piece, and about 3 extra hours to enhance and update the persona of the old green froggy.
Photoshop 7+CS. with wacom intuos

its great to be back in on of the finest digital artist getherings available on the NET. please c&c the cover art, as well as the book if you ever come across a copy. the book should be available right now world wide.

Thanks everyone!

[HOON]

NEW JEDI ERA (starwars: JEDI: YODA promo art)



As Clone war continues to change the shape of the universe, this circumstance reshaped not only from the day to day lives, to intergalactic political movements, but also the very core of the JEDI philosophy.
Now jedi is no longer keepers of the peace, but they are solders with light sabers, and the commanders of clone troopers.
Pix (girl) and Cal (boy) are the new generation jedi padawans, who lost their master jedi in a battle against humanoid race called sephi in planet Thustra. To amend the damage done to Republic force in hostile territory, Yoda makes his vist to this planet and attempt to bring peace back in its place without drawing his saber. however, the predicament Yoda has faced among the young jedi padawans, clone commander, the king of the sephi nation, and the politicians are more complex than he ever expected, and the shadow casted by this event could be one of the most tragic in starwars extended universe.

freakin sweet, i love the colors. i dont know why, but i have always loved that style of art and color. it makes me want to stop drawing enviro's and start drawing more characters again.

wow, thanks everyone for comment!

i just got back from San diego comicon international 2004. anticipating the huge gethering as an industry personnel (for the first time) was quite an experience i must say.

the book does have powerful, well structured storyline, and you can find the proof of that by checking out Darkhorse comics messageboard.

To be honest with you, Art2, i am not a comic collector myself. i have love for sequential arts, but not necessarily the format of comics, and the way the american comic market is.
though i wanna begin my graphic novel collection. some books out there must have the same attention as any other medium, cuz it indeed is great quality art.

da_rock, my favorite part of drawing is doing characters, and designing characters. but i think having the skills and knowledge in perspective and executing successful amospheric work, is not many artist have grasp of, especially when it comes to comics. so i have respect for your specialty.

hey ninjanoodle! tequila for you!!!!!!
