Silvermane hadn’t even had his morning coffee when he first learned about the indictment.

Silvermane’s head is super fun to draw but I put him in his bathrobe because his body is waaaay too cybercomplicated to draw.

I kind of neglected it last year but now I’m making more effort to update my original art blog. 

For kicks I decided to redraw the cover of Marvel’s Star Wars #2 (I can’t find a confirmation of the original artist but Howard Chaykin drew the insides so I’m assuming it’s him).
The original is interesting on a few levels. Most obviously, this scene doesn’t quite happen but regular comic readers know to take their cover images with a grain of salt. Chaykin and company seem to have had limited access to reference material but I decided to use actual cantina patrons (and tried to match them as close as I could to Chaykin’s choices). 
One interesting and enlightening thing you notice when doing recreations of other artists work is where and how they fudge. The lower left part of the cover is very tricky—a realistic depiction would result in an awkward tangle of Luke’s laser bolt, Ben’s legs, Dr. Pignose’s legs and so on. In the original, Chaykin went with having Ben’s lower torso just kind of disappear. I went with a similar layout, with Ben’s robes kind of a blending with shadows on the floor (and I’m in no way trying to diminish Chaykin here—the fact that I only really noticed this bit of business 36 years after seeing this cover speaks to the overall strength of the composition). 
It also amused me to once again have poor Greedo once again getting fried despite already having the drop on his mark. Oh, Greedo! Will you never shoot first?
 There are other aspects of my own choices I’m not entirely satisfied with but this was a heck of a lot of fun to draw so fuck it. If I could somehow figure out a way to do make a regular income drawing stuff like this I’d be a happy boy.
