These original sketches from an official Star Wars trading cards set are shown near actual size. I always loved classic miniatures, those portraits painted on tiny slivers of ivory, slipped into lockets and given as gifts in the days before photography. These mini paintings on card for collectible trading card companies remind me of that sort of work.

I love drawing Padme. She is so beautiful and wears such wonderful costumes! But I don’t have time to do assignments like these days. I have too many book projects going on now.
