Artist Blogs


My new year's resolution this year was to learn a new digital painting style, so I bookmarked a load of digital painting tutorials and waited for some free time. Well, since I'm on vacation, I thought this was a good time to give it a go. I took an old piece I had drawn in more or less my usual style and re-colored it in a new style, following a tutorial by Roberto Campos. This is the result. I'm hoping I can get comfortable enough to incorporate these techniques into my usual drawings. I feel like it adds a lot of depth and intensity.

Progression of an Artist [Asok]

I've been wanting to do this for some time now, and with the new tools that Eclipse has so graciously given to me at my disposal, I can start.

The idea of this blog is simply to show an artist ((One I've selected)) from when they started out here on SWAG and where they are today.

Expense Patchwork Droid [Request]

The story of this droid begins with Lytan Sazet a wealthy young Falleen that wanted to have a very extraordinary droid at her service so she had D3-T8 assembled from an assortment of parts of several different droid models. D3-T8 combined the personality of a protocol unit with the utility of an Astromech as well as functioning as a security droid when needed. An amazing amalgamation of qualities from different droids all merged into one unit.

Here's the start to a sketch of Jynx in the Bacta tank. I'll let her tell you what happened this time around.    PR.112 Lab Log 0045 I had a bacta bath today shortlt after I woke up, and after my vitals were cleared. TikTik seems troubled about the ordeal, or perhaps because for the last three months I have been comatose, he hasn't been able to get ChiChi out of his antenea. It seems I gave everyone a scare, especially since no one knew what the hell was going on at the time.

Hey guys, 
So, obviously I'll be taking it easy for a little bit here since we just got the whole site upgrade, but there are some notable features that are missing at this point, and I'd very much like to fix that. In addition to this I'll probably introduce some new features along the way, and any thoughts or opinions on this are very welcome.
I've been writing term papers for the last two weeks, and I needed a break, so I sketched my version of moncalJeanValjean's privateer character. Maybe I'll claim the request and do the others sometime. I feel like I have other obligations, though... hmm
Hey guys, it's been an age since I was last on this site, and I'm glad for the email letting me know that there are some changes being made.  Changes aren't always a bad thing. I've gone through quite a few, and am still in the process of making more. For one thing, I finally graduated from college in 2010 with my first publication by Cryptic Studios on their RPG Champions book of Villans. I've also been featured in Rotted Capes by Paradigm Concepts.

Here's what I've been up to for freelance writer Ben Gorman who will publish his upcoming Star Frontiersman sci-fi gaming article Balneum Blue. His article features an aquatic alien race that uses biotech to create gear, weapons and vehicles. Here are the ranged weapons I designed.
