Admiral Ackbar pre Fan Days Convention 2012 by Barnlord Admiral Ackbar pre Fan Days Convention 2012 by Barnlord
This is a piece I did for the upcoming Star Wars Fan Days Convention in Irving, TX. I made this with sharpie, ink, watercolor, colored ink wash, and colored sharpie for details. I'm like this one but, for me, it doesn't have the same emotional impact that the Emperor piece has. I would have loved to have more ink wash shading, but I didn't want to over work the piece and muddy up the color.

I wrote a quick blog entry about this character on my website. Click the [link] to check it out!

Thanks! He's one of my faves too. I still have my Ackbar from 1983. I'm refurbishing him and he's got a great home standing next to the computer!

Great one! I liked it when the Mon Calamari showed up, it made the movies seem wider for me.

NICE! :D

I've always found it hard to draw aliens, so I hardly ever do (with the exception of the occasional Predator or Xenomorph, that is) so to me, this is awesome :clap:

I really like your crosshatching here ;)

Ok thanks:D. Yeah, it's a pity, but it would be nice if one year I can go, but in this moment I can't xD. Texas is a beautiful place and if any year I can go maybe I'll go in that festival xDD:D
