The Face Only a Mando Could Love...

The Strill, featured in Karen Traviss' Republic Commando books, and requested by DarNamell. Sort of a cross between Stitch and My Pet Monster.

My 100th piece of art in the gallery!

Done with pencil and Photoshop.


I was wrong. I didn't go to school with this guy.

He'd already graduated before I enrolled.


I really like the fur effect. As I had a request done years ago, with a fair bit of fur, I can appreciate the extra amount of detailing it must've took to draw all that in ;)

And congrats Evan, on your 100th piece!
Core to the Quad baby!!!

If your going to complement me, don't tell me my work is neat, cool or awesome. If you really like it, tell me why you like it and what you like about it. Only then I'll take it as a complement.


Sweet little critter... I have to admit, when I read Traviss' books, I had a hard time imagining what the creature looked like. It had to be hairy and loose-skinned, something I never really figured could allow for smooth gliding and near-flight capabilities.

Well, you've accomplished both. I can see this thing being at home drooling by the feet of some Mando, just as well as I can see it gliding between spacescrapers on Imperial Center.

So what am I trying to say? I dunno, I'm still caught up in "my very first post"-hysteria! :)

But in short, good job!
