South Passage by SvenjaLiv South Passage by SvenjaLiv
Something quick while I'm working on my longer projects. It was mostly an attempt at recording what I was doing in Photoshop; unfortunately, the first few tries didn't work at all, so no video this time around. But I learned a lot and I think I have it figured out for next time.

In the meantime, enjoy Han and Leia arguing! I sketched and painted it freehand, so it's far from perfect, but it's one of my favourite scenes so I'm uploading it anyway. Hope you like it!

Media: Adobe Photoshop, Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet, watercolour texture for the background.
Time: ~ 4 hours.
Reference: Still from The Empire Strikes Back.

You don't give yourself enough credit IMO. Especially Leia's face is so spot-on. Just amazing.
And the whole scene - with their body languages and the proper lighting - is so very well adapted. Great job!

I might be more critical of my own work than others... but I think most people are like that! I'm glad you like this though, thanks!

You did a fantastic job on their expressions and poses! I really love the colors which also show the tense atmosphere.

Great job! Question on the tablet..does the bamboo one only show up on the screen? Or does the image show up on the tablet when you're drawing on the pad?

Thanks! The one I have only shows on the screen. The ones with a display are way beyond my budget.

Wow! Awesome job! In thumbnail view it looks just like a real picture -- it kept popping up in my inbox from random SW groups and each time I just said "psshh, what's so special about a regular old picture??" but then I decided to actually look at it o.O

Great work with the lighting and shadows! I love Leia's hair :D

*lol* No, it's a painting, I promise. I tried to record the process, but the software I used kept messing up, so it didn't work. Hopefully I'll figure it out for next time.

I'm glad you like it though! Thank you so much! :hug:

"it's far from perfect..."

Oh, I beg to differ! I've been so riot-busy I haven't been on much, but when I saw this, I just had to take a few minutes and GUSH!! First--PERFECT likenesses--the planes of Leia's beautiful face are exact in this harsh overhead light, and I'm totally in love with the subtle softness of the piece; Han is also perfectly captured--"Ford Finger gesture" and all! :clap::clap: This was such a telling moment between these characters, and you've captured it so exquisitely--the likenesses, the light and background... It's amazing! :clap::clap::+fav: Your skills with the digital are expanding exponentially, dear--keep it up!

Haha yeah, I love this moment. It's so expressive of their relationship, I've wanted to draw it for ages. I'm glad you can see the likenesses; my reference was quite small so it was a challenge.

Thank you so much! :hug:

I love that scene! The first thought that came into my mind everytime I see this part in the movie is, "Leia bit my finger."-Han

I honestly have no idea why that came into my mind when I first watched ESB :P

This is actually very good and for something that was done freehanded, Its amazing and perfect!! :D

Haha, seriously? That's hilarious. Imagine that... Han storms off, Chewie asks him why he's so annoyed, and he says that Leia bit his finger. :giggle:

Thank you so much, my dear!

Han: Afraid I was gonna leave without giving you a goodbye kiss?

Han: I can arrange that. You could use a good kiss!!

PS essentially went very pixellated at 100% zoom or higher, which made it unusable... But I get a new pc soon, so it should be fine. If not, I'll check out alternatives :)
