I’m in the process of making a Star Wars themed birthday card for Mr. CraftyPaws. We are both huge Star Wars fans (me a little more than him!), and I recently picked up an awesome sentiment stamp set from Neat & Tangled called “A Long Time Ago” that was the jumping off point for this project.
One of my new year’s resolutions was to get back to drawing a bit again, so I decided to draw a cartoony Chewbacca (who’s great for furry Copic coloring) and Yoda (because he has the best quotes). The second half of the video below is a speed drawing of both characters. I used the following Copic colors for them:
Chewbacca: E53, E55, E57, E59, E79 and C1
Yoda: G40, G43 and G24; Claws: W3; Tunic and cane: E55, E57 and E59; and Robe: N1, N3 and N5
Then when I re-looked at the new-to-me My Favorite Things “Beary Special Birthday” stamp set, I started seeing how these bears could be turned into Ewoks (our favorite characters because they look so much like our little Havanese, Bandito). The video below shows in detail how I altered one of these bears to become an Ewok. I used the following Copic colors for this cutie:
Bangs and muzzle: E81, E84, E87, E57, E29 and W5; Hood: E15, E19 and E29; Body: E31, E33, E55, Y28 and YR24; and Present: BG15, BG45, YG25 and G14
The following is a step-by-step video on how to alter stamps with a bonus bit of doodling:
