Topps 2018 Solo trading cards is the sixteenth Star Wars project I’ve had the pleasure of being on! By the end of this year I might be at 20 total Star Wars projects, and definitely well over 20 projects for Topps in all!
For this project, the only reference material I had to work from was a magazine shoot and the first two trailers. With limited reference material, I only worked on 35 sketch cards plus my returns for this project. I drew pretty much 50/50 main cast versus background characters. I did take some liberties on the storm troopers, knowing they were in the movie and decided to just draw some as they normally appear in other movies.
I used acrylic paints on six of this project’s sketch cards, and used acrylics on the backgrounds to all but one of my artist returns. This small sample of acrylics was a testing of the paints for myself. I haven’t used acrylics in a long time and this was a way for me to practice them. Going forward I have a few acrylic paintings in each set.
I have six artist returns for sale (pictured above) from this project. If interested in picking them up, I will be posting them for sale on ebay soon and if you don’t see them there, please drop me a line here!
