Ralph McQuarrie

Here's my tribute to the great Mr McQuarrie, the Star Wars concept artist and illustrator extraordinaire who's died recently. I loved his paintings; especially the perspective-heavy scenes showing xwings and TIE fighters dukin' it out in the death star trench. I remember copying them at the time when they were reproduced in the Star Wars comics and mags - 35 years on and they're still lodged in my brain for 'go to' reference.

Web Site Update

Just updated the digi-pencil section of my caricature site with some recent work.
Looking to add a whole new page for digitally painted caricatures but that requires a more fundamental tooling of the site, so I'll look at that when I can can next muster the will.

I wouldn't set too much store by this, ha, ha, ha! It's veeeeeery late and, often as not, the last thing I can find myself doing is mucking around in photoshop, trying different fx and whatnot. So this is just one addled example involving some illo's that normally look quite different to this. I love photoshop.
