Here’s a different part of the oil painting showing Captain Phasma and a Stormtrooper. I’m nearly finished now and will post the whole painting soon.
As it’s May the 4th what better thing to paint than something Star Wars related. This is Kylo Ren one of the bad guys from the New Star Wars film The Force Awakens due out at the end of this year.
I’ve avoided any major spoilers so far but like the look of the new characters. This painting will show some of the new Stormtroopers and the Chrome Trooper when complete.
This is an Oil Painting on oil paint paper.
This is becoming an annual event, Ronnie O’Sullivan wins the world snooker championship while I paint a picture. Well done again Ronnie. Make sure you come back next year to defend your title again and overtake Davis & Hendry in the next few years!
Anyway I’m working on a Star Wars Episode 7 Han Solo. Can an older Harrison Ford still pull this character off? I hope so.
Here is a speeded up peek into my progress as I replace the face 🙂
So… I got a little frustrated with the painting. Time for makeover 😀
Update 27/03/13 the work done on the face is starting to be worth the effort now. Still not perfect, too happy looking at the moment but the likeness is getting closer.
(EDIT: 07/04/13 What the hell was I thinking, this looks nothing like her… please look at the final image to see improvements :D)
I have a few days off from the day job which I am using as a finishing off week. Felicia day Shepard from Mass Effect is a definite to finish this week in time for the Geek & Sundry 1 year anniversary. I shall be adding the G&S logo onto the armour before it’s finished. Anyway you’ll notice the face has changed again slightly as I’m still not happy with it. Getting better now though.
Update number 12. The final push. No more white space left on the canvas. Time to refine and balance the whole thing out, then add those final details to finish off.
Update number 11 on 08/01/12
Update number 10
After a break over the festive season I’m painting again 😀
Here’s the latest progress on the Felicia Day Mass Effect oil painting. I’ve started on the background now and added a new character Thane. I’m hoping to push on and get this finished within the next week.
Again just worked on the face.
The face has undergone some changes in this update.
Now I have a machine gun 😀
