Thank you very much Allison! The rose stencil and whole death-star sampler-picture thing was completely created in photoshop and dropped into the reference photo, the only part of the painting that 'never existed' in real life.

I plan on detailing that area much more, but for now just wanted to get the base colors in and the 'panel' effect on the death star.

I was looking for a little more humor to be added to the painting (along with the helpful stormtrooper assistants) so the idea of a planet-killing evil base being 'home sweet home' to these little guys quite amusing.

Thanks for stopping by!

What can I say?
Sensational. Your mastery of color mixing is one example.
Congratulations!

Re: 'My Own Personal Minions', a new WIP

Thank you Alexandre and Stewart!

I'm getting good at color mixing because I do it dozens of times a day, even for the tiniest areas.

And after matching the color, I may just say 'this needs to be lighter/darker/higher or lower in chroma', etc. and change it anyway.
