Star Wars.issue1 by Chuckdee Star Wars.issue1 by Chuckdee
... soooooo since this issue comes out today, I don't feel guilty posting some full-page art (finally!!! :) )

Like most of us growing up in the 70's, 80's (even bleeding into the 90's) Star Wars is a part of our pop-culture DNA! so when Dark Horse contacted me to see if I was interested in drawing a Star Wars series using the original characters, I had a mix of SUPER excitement, and SUPER fear!!! ... it's not every day that you get offered to draw such universally loved characters, and the last thing you wanna do is mess it up.

Eventually, after doing some "mental gymnastics" I got into that "sweet spot" in my brain that tells me "Who cares, just have fun!" ... AND that is pretty much the best advice I can give any fellow artist when working on 'big-properties': "Who cares, just have Fun!" :)

Hey Carlos, I love your work man its so good. I've been working on my own comic and am interesting to know what size you do your original works at. I know a lot of people in the industry work @ approx 11" x 17" then scale it down etc, is this what you work at? Also, do you use brush at all or just big markers etc.

Thanks!

Tom

Tere were female rebel fighter pilots, but they were edited out of the movie.
Good to see you put them back.

Your work is good. I'd know Luke Skywalker no matter what his form.

Indeed I am part of that proud group of children from the 90's who loved the original Star Wars, and I continue to love it to this day. Though the prequels have re shaped the way Star Wars looks, and I now have a love-hate relationship with it, I still adore those original 3 classics.

Wait, you are drawing a Star Wars series ? For Dark Horse ? That's huge man, congrats ! And lord and behold there it is in Dark Horse app on my iPad. Bling !

In my experience Star Wars comics are hit or miss kinda thing, some very cool books were made recently though, like Ghost Prison. I'm going to read the hell out of this one though! How long is this series going to be ?

Anyway, yes have fun but, don't mess it up ! No pressure :-)

looks like you are leaning pretty heavy on the colorist, which isn't a bad thing. i'm definitely interested in seeing what they did with these great inks.

I do quite a bit of the art direction on the colors, so I purposely went a bit more open on the line-art, and thank you very much, glad you dig the stuff! :)

Fantastic page! Please post more of them.

I enjoyed this issue very much. Best book on the stands this week. And the best Star Wars comic that Dark Horse has put out in long time. You and the rest of the creative team are doing a great job. Looking forward to the next issue.

Is "Wow" considered constructive criticism? :) Seriously, going to get this today. 1) It's Star Wars and 2) That is a beautifully rendered page that pulls me in and makes me want to read more. Awesome stuff.

This artwork is beautiful!

It's easy to understand how you could have some fear going into a project like this, especially with now terribly virtually all of the paperback novels have messed up the material.

I'm actually very interested in picking up this comic book because it looks like your artwork is going to bleed awesome from start to finish! Might finally be time to visit the ol' comic shop again.
