It’s none other than Space Ghost and a Galactic Empire Star Destroyer (from Star Wars.) Space Ghost is a fictional character created by Hanna-Barbera Productions and designed by Alex Toth for CBS in the 1960s. Space Ghost is credited with being responsible for the popularity of superhero cartoons in the 1960s.In his original incarnation, he was a superhero who, with his teen sidekicks Jan, Jace, and Blip the monkey, fought supervillains in outer space. In the 1990s, Space Ghost was brought back as a host for his own fictional late-night talk show, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, on Cartoon Network and Adult Swim. In the 2000s, he was revamped as a serious superhero once again in a mini-series by DC Comics (from wikipedia.)

A very fun piece to work on for me. I used markers and some white gesso for dotting in some stars in the background. Final inked drawing measures 10″ x 15″, done on light weight blue line comic book art board.

Captain Phasma

The one, the only…Captain Phasma!

Captain Phasma comic style sketch by Rene Arreola

Among the star-studded cast of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, one of my favorite characters was Captain Phasma. So there wasn’t a whole lot of character development for her in the movie. But, I think the appeal to me was a similarity to Boba Fett. There was just a coolness factor at first glance. I don’t know what plans (if any) there are for Captain Phasma in the remaining Star Wars films. But I do know I like the look and design of the costume. So here is my sketch, enjoy.
