My craftster friend, gozer, and I decided to do a personal swap for a set of 4 ATCs.  She wanted something Star Wars, so I decided to make her 4 characters.  Check it out!



I'm super proud of 'em.  Normally I have to do some tracing to get faces, but this time its all freehand, baby!  I did Jabba first, then the Jawa.  Then I decided to take a plunge and do Chewie, fulling believing that I would fail.  But, I totally did it!  Wicket is my favorite Star Wars character.  I just want to HUG him!!! 

They are done on watercolor paper with watercolors and a black pen for the lines.  The letters are stamped. 

Thanks for looking!

Thanks everyone!

Chewy is my fav!


Chewie was totally the one I was worried most about when I was doing him.  I was totally prepared to fail and have do something completely different.  Somehow I managed!  ^_^
