Star Wars Rebels: Inside Man

maxresdefault

   I am not one of those detractors of the series who whines about the kid friendly content. The series airs on DISNEY X/D, a children’s network. There has been some silly moments and outright comedic ones this season. The “Inside Man” has very little light hearted humor. It is a dark episode that should make my friends on the Force Center Podcast and Collider’s Jedi Council pretty happy ( some of the aforementioned whiners😁). I have nothing but love for those folks.

A Super Gift from my Super Wife

   Today, my wife surprised me with this awesome gift. She had purchased the graphic from a second hand store. It used to be a T-Shirt. I love how she constructed the background. It makes the 21×16 inch piece pop. It made my already good day 😍

Gatchaman Me ~ G-0, Karasu D

   Playing around a bit with my progs last night, and came up with this.

G-Zero: Karasu no Darran

   From time to time I enjoy placing myself, much like I did when I was an over imaginative youngling, into the worlds that I enjoyed. While my imagination isn’t up to the same high levels of my former self, I find it relaxing to create myself into old favorites.

   A few other images from my “Me” series:

Me in Kenner Star Wars Style

   I spent a few hours today playing with my “self” portrait in vintage Kenner Star Wars style. I like the Naruto design of the  cloths so I stuck with that motif. As I look at it, the face is a bit too over shadowed but I’ll stick with this for now 🙂

11×15 Hawkman 1994 (?)

   Back in the heady days before I was tethered to a computer for all of my graphic and entertainment needs, I read paper comics and drew. I drew a lot. Now I wasn’t the best, but it was something that I enjoyed. I really miss that process of imagination to paper. I have a drawing tablet but it isn’t as free flowing as the pencil and pen. The up-side is that it is easier to re-tool an image to correct it. Over the last year, I’ve collected items to get back into traditional drawing again, and I have done a few pieces. It just feels forced. I thought I would write about it as a method of discovering the reasons but I just am recreating the frustrations that I face while looking at the blank paper on my drawing board off to my left, at the moment. Perhaps it is a case of “You can never go home.” and, I guess, that is OK. I’ll wait until it’s organic.

Star Wars Rebels Details and a bit of Art

   A few samples of the animation style. I am pretty excited to see the character designs and even a peek at some of the main characters themselves! If this series is what it purports to be, then this will be the bridge between the higher-tech pre-Empire days and the clunkier utilitarian world of my Star Wars. ^_^
