The creativity of Star Wars fans and Bantha Tracks readers apparently never goes on summer holiday. In addition to artwork with pencil and stylus, this month we’re featuring some of my favorite images from the May the 4th fan landmark gallery from across the globe. Some of the photographers definitely went the extra mile to create works of art, and I want to give those photos a little extra time and attention.
Please enjoy this month’s fantastic and whimsical artwork from our readers!
Want to get your masterpiece in Bantha Tracks? All ages and types of artists are welcome and encouraged to submit their art, whether drawings, paintings, woodwork, photographs, crafts, sculpture, or anything creative! Simply read and follow the submission guidelines at the end of this blog.
“I love my pencil and marker work, but really enjoy the finished look of this digital piece,” writes Eric Siebeneck. The artist reports that this piece, which he calls “Maulicious,” started as a quick pencil sketch that he then inked. The colors were done in Photoshop, and the background was part of a photograph that he adjusted digitally, then painted in Photoshop.
Featured next: artistic images from the May the 4th worldwide landmark photo celebration on StarWars.com. You can see the entire gallery here.
For Bantha Tracks, this would certainly be the favorite image! I can imagine the Tusken hunting for his Bantha, which just wandered off in the canyons. Image in Bloomington Petroglyph Park in southern Utah, submitted by Roger Taylor, executive officer of the Rogue Base of the Rebel Legion.
