Kids at Play


This weeks OAC topic was kids at play. I decided to create a real world image and an image of what's in the kid's mind. Who didn't wish at some point to be Han Solo flying the Falcon? I wanted each image to be equally fun and interesting to look at - and it was a good excuse to draw Chewbacca.

In addition to Chewie's parted hair, I dig the parallels between cereal and the droids. A wonderful before and after idea Dave!

I just read your comments about the Emmy win! Thanks alot! I'm very fortunate to have been apart of that crew.I don't know how long ago you posted but i just caught it. Anyways, sorry you didn't win against Arthur of all cartoons. Waste of great talent I suppose. Animaniacs rocks!

Great take on a childhood dreamin. Also nice effort on stretching out stylisticly.Although appropriate for the limited color pallette, i am freaked out by Chewies pink toenails.This is just something i will have to accept as Chewie is confident enough in his Wookiehood to wear pink nailpolish.Very fun sir.

P.S. Chewie's head also reminds me of the militant guy from "the office." I think its the hair curl. Love it.

I'm so glad that folks have liked this piece. I had a fun time doing it - and it was again a struggle for me to try and balance it all. On this one, it came down to the final hours before the finishing touches went in that really helped tie the two together. The brown monster was originally a Big Bird doll and the X-Wing was a complete pain for me to create.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments!

Dave Pryor said...

Also, I'm glad folks seem to like the Chewie hair curl. I was going for that hair swoop he had in Jedi - I was really on the fence with that design element.
Kev - Your comment on that cracked me up and I agree with you.
