kez-iban
« on: July 13, 2004, 10:38 AM »
I did a pastel portrait of kez-iban (directly from the figure) when I was studying art a couple years ago. Finally got around to taking a digipic of it. First and only Star Wars (or science fiction) related piece I've ever done; everything else is just various realistic drawings and paintings. When I presented it in class, no one had any clue as to who or what it was.  :P

Wow is that cool Bob...I almost thought it was a picture!  Nice lighting too, exactly like what a picture would look like.  Another talented JD artist, thanks for sharing!!!

What kinnd of pastels? Oil or chalk? I assume oil because the chalk pastel is much more difficult to get so smooth. But, if one is adept, they can do some pretty crazy stuff with the chalk pastel. I have experimented with both and each has its' own appeal to me. Oil is much brighter and dramatic in terms of color and easier to manipulate, smooth and blend. I like the chalk pastel because of it's sketchy feel.

This is a great piece Bob. I'd love to see more of your stuff, Star Wars related or not...

Thanks, guys! This is definitely one of my funkier pieces...I mean, afterall, it is Kez-Iban.  :P

Thomas, I only use the "chalk" pastels (Rembrandt soft, to be exact). The oil pastels were too much like oil paint, for me. And since I did a lot of oil painting already, I'd just as soon stick with the paint. Besides, the Rembrandt pastels are very forgiving.  ;)

Okay, since Kez was my one and only Star Wars piece, and someone said something about seeing something else I've done (I think ;)), here's a few non-Star Wars pieces:

pastel portrait (about 18" x 24")

oil painting on canvas board (about 12" x 16")

oil painting on canvas (about 12" x 16")

It's a shame I haven't really drawn or painted in almost two years.  :( Hopefully, I'll get some time in the near future to pick it up again. Okay, sorry, enough non-Star Wars stuff. Thanks for allowing me to reflect on my past.  :P ;)

Awesome bicycle, makes me think of Queen, you know, cause of their song...  :-\ Nevermind. But the spokes on the bike are very nicely done.

You definately need to start back up on your artwork, two years is a looong time to not do any artwork!
