Just some random doodle I made.
I guess if you’re obsessed enough with a subject you can draw it without reference. It becomes almost iconic. In fact, I think it IS iconic. This mental picture of a subject seems important if you want to change it into something else, like a Samurai fighter, a barbarian, and yes, even a dog.
I also think passion and obsession is the only way to draw art that people want to watch. It has to speak from the heart or be silent. There seems to be nothing in between. That is very Yoda of me to claim: “Do or do not. There is no try.”
Where would we be without Star Wars?
That is all.
