Luminara Unduli was a Mirialan female who served as a Jedi Master and Senior Jedi General in the fading years of the Galactic Republic. She was a valued advisor to the Jedi Council, the Supreme Chancellor, and the Galactic Senate. During the Clone Wars, she fought with her last Padawan, Barriss Offee, and she was a common and formidable presence at points of crisis, on worlds such as Ilum, Nadiem, and Geonosis. She was killed during the Battle of Kashyyyk when Order 66 was enacted.

She is crouching because I ran out of paper.

One of those early morning, first out of the pencil, warm up sketches. It's yet another Quinlan Vos, looking a little younger.

A Jedi, this time one of my own character designs.

A mermaid intended as a forearm tattoo design, with the anchor sitting just above the wrist.
My most recent Quinlan Vos drawing. I've been experimenting with figure drawing more and foreshortening of limbs and bodies, something I've never learned but which is probably the most common comic book convention. The complaint about much comic book art is that you know exactly what to expect when you open the cover, and I think that should change, with much more diversity in the artists and the art.

A faun stopping for a cup of steaming hot tea. This is probably the drawing I am most pleased with of everything I have done lately.

A quick sketch of Huntress, who is probably my favourite DC character, although I dont know why. I like the way she busts up the bad guys without a care for their medical bills. I did this without photo reference, my first attempt at this character.

Yes I know I should branch out and try new characters if I ever hope to be employed in the comics industry. Here is my first attempt at a Wolverine.

On a saturday morning,
Somewhere in france,
Jacques sips his coffee,
Wearing stripey pants.

Two more recent sketches of Quinlan Vos.

A sketch idea for a comic or book cover about Vulcans.

Another pair of Jedi Knights.

This is the "Whatever it is I didnt do it" face that all pet owners know.

I am fascinated by the story of the Roman Emperor Caracalla. His name comes from the red cloak that he wore, and he was the first to grant citizenship to everyone in the Roman Empire, but this was more out of a need for more taxes than any kind of magnanimity. He ruled jointly with his slower brother Geta, and caracalla murdered him so that he alone could be Emperor.

He was murdered by one of his own soldiers while taking a piss by the side of the road.

Muscle sketch detail.

Two sketches of Bultar Swan, a cool Star wars character that appears briefly in the films.

An alien of my own design.

Two jedi knights, the one on the right is a twi'lek, but the one on the left is one of my own creations.

various Star wars characters. What I've atempted to do is draw them from memory without resortng to reference material or the ever trusty Google images.

A twi'lek has your lightsabre, now what are you going to have to do to get it back?

The Jedi Knight Shaak Ti, of the Togruta race, levitating

Two more of Quinlan Vos.

Down in the park
Any day of the week,
bears are playing
Hide and seek.

Some samples I created for a childrens clothing label.

Various variations on a design for a geisha tattoo.

More Quinlan Vos sketches from my Moleskine.
