The Emperor

So I'm finally learning how to use Illustrator! For this project we each picked a movie monster and created a portrait using only the pen tool, which behaves absolutely nothing like a pen. Why do they even call it that? But anyways... I noodled a little too much with the eyes and then had to rush to finish the rest of the face, but I still think it turned out pretty well. He needs to get some sleep and see a dentist, STAT!

*and the image I worked from does not belong to me, although this art does. This character belongs to Lucasfilm Ltd... just throwing that out there. I'm also learning about copyright law :)
