Star Wars Movie Ranking

It's no secret I love Star Wars, so even though this post has no art I think it's okay to post it here. Also, it's my blog.

I finally saw the Last Jedi. I'm not going to do a review. I just don't have the time to write that, but I'd love to interact with you on FB and Twitter.

1. The Empire Strikes Back

2. A New Hope

3. Rogue One  - It took me some time to come to this conclusion, but this is a great movie. It'd be higher, but I don't think those top two can be unseated.

4. Return of the Jedi - The original version, NOT the Special Edition. There's a scene added to the opening act that kills the Special Edition for me. And don't even get me started on Hayden's ghost.

5. Revenge of the Sith

6. The Force Awakens - My 5th and 6th spots are really neck and neck. There are probably fewer cringe-worthy moments in TFA, but ROTS feels more Star Wars to me.

7. The Phantom Menace - I probably lost some people by placing this so high.

8. The Attack of the Clones - I liked this more than Phantom back when it was new, but there are just too many cringe-worthy moments. Really, these two are also neck and neck for me.

9. The Last Jedi - It's the first Star Wars movie where I checked the time at some point. That alone should earn it this spot. Unfortunately, losing my interest and pacing were not it's only problems.

Again, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks for looking, Mike

My Little Superhero

Inktober 31st

Two hours ago I had no idea what I would draw for today. Then my five year old decided to put on her rainbow unicorn cape and head gear over her Batgirl pajamas. Whammo! I had the drawing I would end Inktober with.

This Inktober worked way better than last year. I got a lot more comfortable inking, and inking with the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen in particular. I also feel I've gotten into a better routine of drawing. Developing a habit of drawing every day was one of my goals for this Inktober challenge. Now to keep it going.

I won't be posting every day, but I do plan to post more frequently than I have this past year. I picked up a couple commissions that I will share when they're finished. I also plan to finish a project that I've been working on for a couple of years. I'm taking that in a bit of a new direction and I'm happy with the way that's going so far.

So even though Inktober's done, I hope you come back and see what I'm working on. You can subscribe to the blog using the tool to the right. Also, if you're interested in a commission feel free to contact me.  At this time I'm only doing black and white drawings right now, but I'd be happy to consider what you want done.

As far as hurricane relief, anything posted prior to this post is still designated to that cause. I will probably let the auctions end and just have a fixed price for any available pieces from here on out.

That's all for now. I'm tired.

Inktober 30th

I think I mentioned I love Rogue One. I'm not completely happy with the likeness, but I've been wanting to get this one in before Inktober was done.

Inktober 29th.

I watched M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable last night. With all of the superheroes I put on this blog, it's only right that I'd draw something from a film that I would easily place in my top five favorite superhero movies.

Check out my Ebay auctions that are presently going toward hurricane relief:
