for the evil emperor, you have a LOT of unused space on the left side. i'd crop that down, and then maybe even scale down the sword so the whole picture's proportional and whatnot.

You could add a dead guy impaled on something on the left. that would add  some evilness to your emperor

Forgive this noobish question but what program did you use/reccomend using for artwork pics and all that...I've been wondering for awhile.

Yes I used Gimp.

Yes exactly :D but it is not as difficult as you may think.
The Trooper is one of my first pictures that i drew with Gimp.

I think that I would prefer to do it by hand.  Did you have a tablet to work with?  If not, then I commend you.  And you give me hope, since my mouse skills are teh suck.  These are great, keep up the good work.  :)

Hey, I've GOT a tablet and I couldn't do as good a job as that. Kudos on the artwork!

I did a "trace & mod" of Mike's minifig outline for Indiana Jones. I did the work for this in MSPaint, and then touched it up a little in Gimp. This'll probably be the way that I do all of my hero cards... which means that they'll all be in pretty much the same pose.
:lol:

I know, I know... I'm missing the holster on his leg. The picture that I nabbed offline to do this had it removed, so I didn't even realize it until it was too late. Oops!
