Day 122 of 365: Han Fuckin' Solo

Yeah, so I left for over a year. I never said that this was going to be a 365 days in a row thing. Oh, I did? My bad.

Anyway, this is Han Solo. He is better than you. In fact, he is better than everything. And yes, that includes candy and when it rains magic.


Day 121 of 365: Leesub Sirlin

Leesub Sirln was a Force-sensitive Qiraash who demonstrated limited powers of precognition. She was enslaved as a child before being discovered by High Inquisitor Antinnis Tremayne, who selected her as a Force adept. She escaped Tremayne and hid in Mos Eisley on the planet Tatooine, where she was seen lurking in Chalmun's Cantina in 0 BBY.


Days 115-120 of 365: The Modal Nodes

Sorry about the "delay" but would you really care all of these guys separately. I figured I would lump 6 days together in the common interest of not seeing basically the same guy over and over again. Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes were an all-Bith music band, specializing in the fields of Jizz (hehe) and Jatz (not as funny). The membership roster of the band alternated over the years, adding and subtracting members whenever the situation called for it. They persistently maintained at least five permanent performers at any one time and sometimes as many as seven. The known members of the Modal Nodes included:

Figrin D'an (kloo horn, gasan string drum, drawn earlier, not pictured here)
Doikk Na'ts (Dorenian Beshniquel)
Ickabel G'ont (fanfar)
Tedn Dahai (fanfar)
Tech Mo'r (ommni box)
Nalan Cheel (bandfill)
Lirin Car'n (kloo horn)

I have no idea which are which in this picture. They all look alike. Like Asians... I mean, I am not a racist. Whoops.

Oh, this covers me for tomorrow too.


Day 114 of 365: Rycar Ryjerd

Rycar was known on set as the "Flash Gordon Midget".


Day 113 of 365: Takeel

Takeel was a Snivvian mercenary and burned-out spice addict who frequented Chalmun's Cantina, looking for employment. He was also known by the nickname "Hunchback".
Sorry, folks, there is going to be a lot of these types of characters in a row. I have a lot of days to fill and these characters are how I am going to fill it. . . with "spice addicts".

Day 112 of 365: George Lucas

As much as I bash this man for the recent follies, I still think he is an amazing man who had an amazing vision. Happy Star Wars Day, George.

Note: I hit save instead of publish so here is yesterday's post a day late.


Happy Star Wars Day

May the 4th be with you! Get it? Its clever. I am honoring this special day by giving you a taste of some of the best Star Wars art that is not mine.

Hugh Fleming:

Ashley Wood:

and last but not least Brandon Bird:

See you with my update ASAP.


Day 111 of 365: Chewbacca

Chewbacca. What else can I say?

Day 110 of 365: Nabrun Leids

Super phoned in. Maybe the next one will be awesome.

Day 109 of 365: Djas Puhr

I did one of this fellow in ink but it ended up as the Alderaan drawing. It just got too dark. So here is a pencil version.

Day 108 of 365: Alderaan

Get it?


Day 107 of 365: Anakin Skywalker

Anakin Skywalker will be the last of my Clone Wars characters. Now that I am caught up, I will be focusing on the original trilogy again.

I tried to remove the "pissy" from him in this drawing but it is just so hard to do without shoving a mask on his face. I changed facial features and added thick linework but the pissiness remained.

On that note, I am up to date and tomorrows drawing will be a phoned in mess because of it. Enjoy.

Day 106 of 365: R2-D2

To counteract the bee in my bonnet that Dooku placed, here is R2-D2. The character no one can possible dislike because what's not to like? Trashcan that makes weird noises? Sign me up.

Day 105 of 365: Count Dooku

I fucking hate Count Dooku. Not in the way that you are supposed to hate a villain, in the kick ass Vader, Boba Fett, Greedo, Emperor, IG-88 way, but in the way that I hate chapped lips or Sean Hannity. He is just so damned boring.

Day 104 of 365: Shahan Alama

Shahan Alama was a male Weequay bounty hunter active during the Clone Wars. He teamed up with Cad Bane and Aurra Sing during the Senate hostage crisis.

Day 103 of 365: Turk Falso

I only drew Turk Falso because his name is Turk Falso and I have a thing for characters with silly names. See Bib Fortuna and Kit Fisto for other examples of this.

Day 102 of 365: Plo Koon

Day 101 of 365: CC-2224 (Commander Cody)

He sucks.


Day 100 of 365: Grevious

Dear George Lucas,

Thank you for making a television show so I could see more of this character that kicked so much ass in the Clone Wars animated series from 2003 but then you made a giant disappointment in that movie where Hayden Christensen plays a mass murderer and Samuel L Jackson melts some old guy's face. It has given me a chance to see more of a great villain who died too early. I guess you learned from past mistakes such as killing off the best part of Phantom Shit leaving me enraged and not at all excited too see the next one. That was until I saw previews of Jango Fett. Then I was back to being interested again. Then you killed him too and you can pretty much guess what my response was. For the third one I knew this fellow was going to die. You weren't creative enough to find a way to let him live without fucking up continuity but I figured I was in for a show. Sadly the whole time he ran away from danger and coughed a lot. This was pretty confusing seeing as how he was constantly killing Jedi in the cartoon and collecting their lightsabers. But no, a blast to the chest kills him and I wasn't even given a thrilling battle. Just Obi Wan riding a mop dinosaur and Grevious being a coward suffering from Tuberculoses.

But now I have a second chance to see Grevious in action. He is not as kick ass as he was in the 2003 cartoon, but I understand you are old and set in your ways, unwilling to heed anyone's advice even though everyone in the entire world thinks most of the shit you come up with now is insane. Of course, not having one of the most menacing looking characters of all time being a cowardly asthmatic is a good idea. Everyone thinks its lame but you know best, isn't that right George. Maybe just a bit got through and you allowed the writers of The Clone Wars to make Grevious less of a pussy, but thats the limit that you are willing to go. You can only offer small concessions such as having Han and Greedo shoot at the same time or not replacing Mark Hamill with a CGI version of mark Hamill in the newest "special edition" or making Revenge of the Sith suck just a tad less than Attack of the Clones.

As much as I love you, George, sometimes I fucking hate you.



That is it for today, folks. I will be bringing us up to speed totally tomorrow. I figured I would like to end on a high(ish) note.

Day 99 of 365: Lok Durd

More like Lok Turd.

I'm sorry.

Day 98 of 365: Nute Gunray

This is my first drawing where i only used markers. I think it turned out okay. Also, I remember earlier i stated that I wouldn't draw anyone from the new movies because I think the new ones are made of barf and anger. Since I have gotten into the new TV show I will lift that ban as long as the characters were in the Clone Wars series. See this dick for an example of that ban being lifted.

Day 97 of 365: Aurra Sing

Well, folks, I just realized that I am going to run out of pages in my sketch book before I get to 106. At least I think i will. My counting abilities are not too good due to my fear of vampires. --If you get my reference it is clear we are meant to be friends. Anyway, if I do not catch up today, I will tomorrow since my job tomorrow consists of sitting for 10 hours and I can buy a new sketch book.

Aurra Sing is deadly.

Day 96 of 365: Stan the Jawa

I find Stan to be adorable.

Day 95 of 365: Cad Bane

Cad Bane is a shit pile of awesomeness. This stems from the fact that his character was modeled after Lee Van Cleef in his gritty, non-Master Ninja, roles and one of my favorite movies of all time is The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. He is almost better than Van Cleef because Lee didn't have tubes coming out of his face.

Day 94 of 365: Aayla Secura

The fact that Aayla is of the same race as Bib Fortuna seems kind of astounding. That is, until you realize that james Carville is the same race as Sherilyn Fenn.

I know using Sherilyn Fenn as an example of beauty may seem a little dated but I seriously cannot think of a more beautiful woman. And yes, I am aware that this will probably piss off my wife.

Day 93 of 365: Luminara Unduli

The woman who plays Luminara is a pretty common fixture at comic book conventions. He line is very small. That was not meant to be an insult to her but about the greatness of Lou Ferrigno. People just don't have time to see them both, so of course they pick the asshole who won't even look at you unless you pay him 20 bucks while his fat wife tries to hustle you into buying some cheap snapshot of the deaf prick covered in green make-up. All you wanted was a quick picture with the guy, but no 20 bucks for that too. At least the guy who played Ralph Malph shot the shit with me before he turned down my request for a picture. Damn, I hate Lou Ferrigno.

Day 92 of 365: IG-100 MagnaGuard

More Clone Wars fellows. The IG-100 MagnaGuard, or Self-Motivating Heuristically Programmed Combat Droid, was an advanced type of battle droid that was manufactured by Holowan Mechanicals and used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. Ordered by Count Dooku, the MagnaGuards were designed to be General Grievous's personal bodyguards, although they were sometimes seen serving Dooku himself.

I drew this one with a hood thing and a scarf/cape thing because the picture I found had thiese things wearing them. However subsequent trips to wookieepedia.org have provided pictures of noncloaked MagnaGuards. This make my joke about robots wearing hoods moot.

Day 91 of 365: Ziro

Ziro is Jabba's uncle and was featured in the Clone wars series in what was one of the most wonderful Star Wars stories ever. He is pretty much what a fart would look like if a fart became solid and sentient.

Day 90 of 365: Nebit

Okay, so I did not really intend to make this Nebit but since there are so few Jawas of note, it turned into Nebit.
I will let wookieepedia explain Nebit:
Nebit's tribe captured droids for trading, and his sandcrawler boasted a large stock of varied makes and models at the time they carried the droids C-3PO and R2-D2, who were fugitives from the Empire. His tribe sold the droid counterparts to Owen Lars, the uncle of Luke Skywalker, future Rebel Alliance hero and Jedi Knight. While negotiating with Lars, Nebit adopted a Jawa "business dialect".

Isn't the shit they write hilarious?

Day 89 of 365: Wat Tambor

According to my math, today should be day 106 of 365. I am going to see if I can get caught up by midnight tonight. I bet you I can since I made a ton of drawings today.

First, here is Wat Tambour. He is a character I was super excited to draw but then I drew him and he came out slightly retarded looking. I am putting him at the beginning where I will be putting all the lesser drawings, saving the great ones for the top. Wat Tambor's appeal seems to be limited to his character design and I base that solely on the fact that I could not get through the introductory paragraph on wookieepedia.org. There was mention of a techno union or something but the rest read like something out of a U.N. briefing.

On to the next one!


Day 87 of 365: Ahsoka Tano

Ahsoka Tano is, in my opinion, the weak spot in the Clone Wars series. Her character design is off putting and her voice actor makes her sound far too vapid for a Jedi apprentice. She seems like the cliche tv character whose whole purpose is to roll their eyes and say "Here we go again." whenever the far better character is doing something awesome involving alligators or dynamite. Plus she is a floating head which is just weird. Just kidding, I did that because I have trouble drawing spindly arms and shoulders.
On an off note, what do hairless padawans grow out instead of a (lame)braid? If you saw the first Clone Wars cartoon, volume two, you would see that the cutting off of the (stupid)braid was a main part of the crazy "you're a Jedi" ceremony. It was like a hair circumcision minus the super horror of the penis variety circumcision.


Day 86 of 365: Asajj Ventress

How many days have I missed total? Can someone do the math for me so I can get my shit caught up? If you do I will grant you a wish just as long as your wish is for me to never punch you in the head. Do we got a deal?

This fine lady is Asajj Ventress. She is from the Clone Wars animated series. Both of them actually. While kind of sucking and being way too snake like in the first series, she has become far more awesome in the new series. Speaking of awesome, the Clone Wars series on Cartoon Network is awesome. It just shows what people can do with Star Wars as long as George Lucas keeps away from writing or directing.


Day 85 of 365: Iasa

Iasa was a Jawa. When Luke Skywalker arrived at Chalmun's Cantina with Ben Kenobi, R2-D2 and C-3PO in 0 BBY, Iasa approached Luke Skywalker's X-34 landspeeder but was shooed away by the young Skywalker. This riviting scene set up the often quoted "I can't abide those Jawas! Disgusting creatures!"

C-3PO is a racist.


Day 84 of 365: Dash Rendar

This is just a drawing of my friend Jake. As far as I know Dash Rendar could look like this when he lets his 5 o'clock shadow turn into a full beard and he stops trimming his hair. Either way, I am saying this is Dash Rendar.


Day 84 of 365: Luke's Lightsaber that I painted in college

Many thanks to my mother, who took the time to take a picture of this so I didn't have to do a drawing today. You see, I have arthritis, which is the worst thing for an artist to have and certain days its pretty damn painful to do a drawing. This week has been one of those days.


Day 83 of 365: Datcha

This is the guy (guy?) who shot R2D2 at the beginning of New Hope when Artoo was wandering through the desert. If it wasn't for this fellow, Luke would have never been hooked up with Old Ben. At least not in a way that would be appealing to movie goers.


Day 82 of 365: Kit Fisto

Kit Fisto is great. Actually he was great even before I knew who he was. Why is this? Because his name is Kit Fisto. This name falls into the awesome category of Star Wars names. It is up there with Pote Snitkin, Lobot, Salacious B Crumb and Lando in terms of its awesomeness.


Day 80 of 365: Obi-Wan Kenobi

I got the scanner to work! It only took entirely too long. I hate technology.


Day 79 of 365: Dianoga

I feel a major character coming on. Suggest one, not Vader, and it will be drawn.

Edit: Not Han either. That will be done for a friend's birthday. Jake, when is your birthday? June right?


Day 78 of 365: Viper probe droid (Probot)

Why would it be saying Dagobah System?


Day 77 of 365: Ghoel

Jabba's pet thing that would lick people. Its like a slug with a tongue.

Again, more filler characters.

So who do you guys want to see? Let me know, I will draw them. Try to stay away from the Hans, Lukes, Vaders, etc as I need some treats as time goes on. Also, try to stay within the original trilogy as most characters from the new trilogy fill me with rage.




Day 75 of 365: Figrin D'an

I believe this is who Andrew meant by "weird flute guy".


Day 72 of 365: April Fools?

To answer the two word question I posed in the subject: Sort of.

You see, Bea Arthur is worthy of being drawn and place on this blog as an April Fool's joke but this is not a complete "fool". Bea Arthur actually was in a Star Wars related... well... "special"

See @ 1:27:

She plays Ackmena. She was a favorite personage of the regular patrons there. Unlike Wuher, the dayshift bartender, Ackmena's friendliness and open personality livened the atmosphere of the room immensely. She would routinely lend money to needy patrons and offer free drinks on special occasions. Assisting her at the bar was a diminutive female barmaid (name unknown), and a tall, blue-faced bouncer named Tork.

Happy April Fool's Day, Assholes.
