Obi Wan vs Grievous

Author Comments

Obi Wan Kenobi and general Grievous from Star Wars. I used a screenshot from the film as a reference.
I drew it with pastels and pastel pencils. I know I made some proportion mistakes and I am working hard to get better.


I agree with the other comments that this is a great piece and I'm impressed how well the colors blend even though the painting is made in a traditional medium. Really cool. Further, what also impresses me is the glow of the lightsabers and ligthing in general, gives a really nice atmosphere to the piece.

As previously critiques Obi-wan's hand looks a little strange and Grievous seems to have lost and arm? I might be misstaken there. I'd also had liked to have seen some colored highlights as reflections of the lightsabers. (Motivation for 4.5/5)

However, overall this is really nice, the blending especially and how you've worked with the level of detail and resemblance of charcecters (as previously mentioned) to give depth to the image by pushing the less rendered droids into the background. Really smart and well executed design.

Yup, I see that Obi Wan's hand and head are a bit too small. It's hard to change it now but I will take your criticism with me and do better next time. Thank you for motivating me to get better!

Other than Kenobi's weird baby hand, there's nothing wrong with this. I am particularly impressed by the style of the blurry, somewhat abstract figures that blend into the background while still managing to be instantly recognizable. For example, i was able to see that this is the scene that many Kenobi memes reference.

cool art. well done. keep up the work
