Jedi Master Yoda on Dagobah – Star Wars Oil Painting Illustration Artwork May The Force Be With You

“In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights our way.”

– Yoda

That quote is incredibly apt when it comes to the journey that I have just taken to a galaxy far far way in order to create my latest artwork ‘Jedi Master Yoda on Dagobah’.

I took a very different approach to this piece than I usually do with my paintings; this time I wanted not to work from a single reference image and fall into the usual trap of becoming a slave to the reference and instead worked from a variety of different ones.

It all began with the drawing!

April 2019 – Monthly Instagram Roundup -Foodie Munchies & Art Stuff

Are You Feeling Snacky?

I haven’t had a great deal of time for adventures over the past month, and any out and abouting that I have managed to do has proved pretty unfruitful in terms of photographs taken.

All of the photos are my own, taken with either my phone or digital camera and then edited solely using Instagram.

I hope that you enjoy this selection of my favourite photos that I’ve taken and posted to Instagram,  please feel free to follow me on there and start a conversation!

Jedi Master Yoda – Preliminary Drawing

Finally…

Here we are at last with the third preliminary drawing; the one that was left as a bit of a surprise, unless of course you follow me on Instagram in which case you would have seen the work in progress.

Master Yoda!

I don’t know what the appeal is for me that draws me to the wizened old sage-like characters in literature and film but nonetheless, both Yoda and Gandalf seem to fit into a category that captivates my imagination.

If you missed the first two preliminary drawings you can find them by clicking the links –

Passage of the Marshes

The Grey Pilgrim

Anyway, here is the drawing –

Now that I have the three preliminary drawings I can begin the oil paintings, I have transferred each drawing to its canvas and they are ready to go, all I need to do is snatch moments here and there to get started.

The next post for this project will show the start of the painting process so don’t forget to subscribe to my blog to stay updated, the subscribe/follow button is further down this page!

Until next time, farewell!

InkTober 2016 – Week 3

Back again for week 3 of my InkTober participation, I managed to get at least a quick sketch done for each day this week and I’m finding myself becoming a lot more comfortable using ink.

I’ve also been looking at the work from a lot of other people and there is some truly amazing stuff being created for InkTober.

Some artists are using InkTober to create a continual story that takes the viewer through the 31 days; plucked along day by day with a visual narrative that keeps the viewer wanting to come back the following day and see the development.

The idea of the storytelling approach is one that I find highly appealing, I think that’s what I’ll do for next year as it is a lot more engaging than 31 totally random and unrelated sketches.

Anyway, here are the fruits of my labour for this past week –
