The Clone Wars: Season Two

During the first week of the month, I did 32 sketches for Topps' The Clone Wars: Rise of the Bounty Hunters trading card set.

These drawings include characters from the second season of the Cartoon Network series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  Each one measures 2.5x3.5 inches and was done in pen & ink, along with the occasional pencil.


Thanks,
Doug

The Lord of the Rings

Although this The Lord of the Rings artwork isn't new, much of it has not been shown before.  The finished Legolas artwork was published by Topps as part of their "The Lord of the Rings: Masterpieces II" card set.

Before being assigned the character Legolas,  I did many preliminary sketches.  Most of these involved Gandalf, who had been my first choice.


Below is the final art; both the original watercolor and the finished image, colored in Photoshop.

Thanks,
Doug

Website Additions

I've added a few new features to the website.

The first is a button on the lower right to a Facebook page about my artwork.  New art and updates are posted roughly every week there.

Secondly, you can now subscribe to my posts (link at bottom).  Also, the archived posts are now much easier to navigate through.

Lastly, I have added a store (link at top right).  It's secure, managed through Paypal (not required), and at the moment features many of the prints I have available:

 

Thanks,
Doug
