Captain Solo by SvenjaLiv Captain Solo by SvenjaLiv
Sooo I got distracted and wanted to see if I could do a quick painting instead of my usual painstakingly careful stuff. This took me about an hour, which is pretty quick for my standards, and I'm quite happy with it. So that's a win. And it's also Han, whom I haven't drawn/painted in a while, so - double win.

I love the expression in this shot. :XD: In over his head as usual and doing his best to snark it away. :heart: Enjoy!

Oh, and yes, I painted this from scratch. No tracing or painting over a reference.

Media: Adobe Photoshop, Wacom Bamboo tablet.
Time: ~ 1 hour.
Reference: Still from Empire.

How can you do something this good in just one hour? :faint:
It looks really cool, especially the hair.

With a reference on hand *lol* Thank you! I'm glad you like his hair. :)

I'd still need forever for that. I tend to get lost in details and then the picture usually turns out different from the reference. ;P

Oh, yeah, I always have to fight that tendency in myself too. I've been teaching myself to start rough, very rough - it helps if I intentionally blur my eyes when I look at the reference - and work towards details.

That sounds like a good idea. Maybe I'll try that in a future pic.

Fantastic speedpaint! I must practice painting from movies, because I have to add depth to my works. :)

Thanks so much! Yeah, copying references is a great way to learn about contrast, tone, and depth. :)

I know, but I am a bit lazy when it comes to that. I just like to draw stuff directly from my head. But I will change that- all in the name of progress. ;)

Ah, sure, if you prefer drawing from your head, do it... there's no wrong or right. ;)

**sigh**

And GAACK!! ONE HOUR?!? :faint: I just adore your quick stuff (though the detaily pieces make me swoon...)--this is just right: flawless likeness and capture of that "WTF do I do NOW?" expression--marvelous light and shadow; great soft focus of the b/g, making him pop right out... And I adore it! :heart:

Yeah, this one was really quick for my standards. It was good to take a break from details for a bit - sometimes it's like I need to "loosen up", you know? Glad that I got his expression - I love his facial expressions while he's flying the ship. :D Thank you very much! :aww:

Amazing as always!!
I love his expression.
This looks like his expression from ESB when he says "were in trouble".
He is still sexy in this shot. UGh I just love how you draw Captain Solo :D

This is hella good..But, I highly doubt that this is made from scratch..It looks to be a carbon-copy to Me : P

Thanks! I'll take that as a compliment. ;) But it's from scratch. I don't have any wips aside from the initial sketch though, since I painted it all in one go. But anyway, if you laid this over the original I'm pretty sure there'd be a ton of discrepancies.
