I have wanted to become an artist for several years, but I was thinking of something that made me even more determined to become good at art. Two things, really. Maybe more, I don’t know. Anyway, a while ago, I got the comic “Star Wars: Visionaries”, which actually has several little comics from concept artists that worked on, well, Star Wars. It was really fun to look at all those different styles. Some I liked more than others, but they were all unique and awesome. It’s one of my favorite comics. Maybe my favorite.
Then, one day I heard about “The Art of Star Wars: Episode III”, and needless to say, I needed it. It was actually pretty rare, I think, but I managed to find it, and it has so much amazing art. Many, many pages of it, both with ideas they used and ones they didn’t. I want so very much to be that good someday. Even half that good. I have far to go. And I really need to work on backgrounds. I’ll never be good at them if I rarely practice them. I am so naughty.
So if anyone likes Star Wars and art, check out those books if you can. Good stuff. I also have “Star Wars: Panel to Panel” Volumes 1 and 2, which has good artwork from different Star Wars comics. Not quite as awesome as the previous two books I mentioned, but still good.
