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 :)


  1. Glad to hear they are teaching you about copyright law. Although often murky, you'll soon find that it is possibly one of the most important concepts you'll need to know in terms of protecting your own work! As always love following your work.

  2. Nice! Well done! ;) The eyes look good.
