Thought I'd best post a picture of an actual bear too. Here's a smudgy charcoal drawing of the armoured bear from 'His Dark Materials (the awesome book version not the crappy movie).

The Old Bear

A very liberal interpretation of this month's theme; The Old Bear, Commander Mormont from 'Game of Thrones'.

Bear Story

I'll kick this theme off with a story. In the Lorena Province of Afghanistan in 2001, or thereabouts, a toddler belonging to a nomadic tribe wandered off from his tent and was missing for three days. He was eventually found, safe and well, in the hills miles away, in the cave of a she-bear. The bear was curled protectively around the child and had apparently been nursing him. He was taken home to his relieved parents; no record seems to exist however for what happened to the bear. One likes to hope for the best.

The Thin White Duke

Mr. Boo-ie

This was the first weekend I got a chance to finish this stuff off. 

I thought I’d do something a bit more grown up.  This comes from his Lazarus vid, loved the lighting in that and wanted to do most recent Boo-ie.   (He said himself once even he didn’t know how to pronounce that.  He thought “Bowie” was a Scottish name and did actually think it was pronounced “Boo-ie”, but I just say it that way because I’m being deliberately stupid)

..but then,  there’s only so much grown-upness one can take…

Rey Sketches

Doesn't look anything like Rey, but you get the idea...wicked character nonetheless!

Also, here's a Darth Maus sketch:

Darth Dominator

I've wanted to do more fan art of Wander and Star Wars, so I figured it made sense to kill two birds with the one stone!

Dark VS Light

If you kinda squint your metaphorical eyes, these guys have a lot in common with Darth Vader and Luke, aside from the obvious, Lord Vader rhyming with Lord Hater. One determined to hate, the other running around helping space folks. They also traverse the galaxies thwarting each other and/or trying to get along with each other. Not the most ingenious mash-up, admittedly, but I certainly had fun with it! - Lynn

Something for the Star Wars theme. Not sure what this Star Wars thing is. People really should talk about these things more.

Star Wars...Star Wars......

Almost too much to choose from for this theme.  But I decided to narrow it down to the original trilogy. It's been years since I've drawn anything Star wars related despite being a big fan.

Poor Anakin!

I'd say this little guy is getting pretty sick of all the new Star Wars talk!

The 'Do'

Rey Poses - Star Wars

Rey is one of the characters I'm looking forward to seeing the most in the new Star Wars film.

I was going to color these up but eh, there's another iron in the fire I want to get to.

Wars Wars

This is a cheat.  I've had these done for a while, so I'm putting them in as one batch, but as they were there, thought I might as well.  Star Wars is just so ripe for a Thom pickin...
