Fun with watercolor pens

I made an illustration of aliens with a set of watercolor pens. Santa gave the pens to my son for Christmas. My son and I had a good time making a bunch of drawings with the watercolor pens Christmas morning.

My Star Wars fan art illustration of Ewoks deep in the forest of Endor. #Ewok

Ewoks are a species of small creatures that resemble teddy bears that appear in the Star Wars universe. They are hunter-gatherers and inhabit the forest moon of Endor.  Ewoks are my favorite Star Wars murder bears.  I remember watching the two Ewok movies, Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor when I was very young.  The forests of Endor always captured my imagination.

Tusken Raider fan art

This is my fan illustration of a Tusken Raider from Star Wars.  Also referred to as Sand People they are indigenous to the planet Tatooine.  Moreover, Sand People always ride single file to hide their numbers!  In the Star Wars movies, Tusken Raiders are shown as being extremely xenophobic and territorial, often attacking the outskirts of small settlements.

Starting tomorrow, I am going to make a few drawings for Inktober.  Inktober is an art challenge that asks participants to create an ink drawing every day for the month of October.  I plan on making two drawings a week.  One a day is out of my reach.

Alien monster inspired by the film, This Island Earth

This is an alien creature inspired by the 1955 movie, This Island Earth.  I remember watching the movie one Saturday at my grandparent’s home in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.   The film is full of campy elements, but it deserves respect as one of the more ambitious science fiction adventures of its time.  Mystery Science Theater 3000 also used the film to great effect.
