Shae Vizla – Mandalorian bounty hunter from Star Wars –
I’ve always loved the Old Republic era of Star Wars (well frankly I love all eras of Star Wars), but I am pretty sure that I haven’t ever drawn any characters from that particular timeline. I thought I should change that and because I have been into Mandalorians just lately Shae was the perfect choice.
Apart from being in the actual SWTOR game as a companion character (which I’m still bitter about not being able to play because I’m on a Mac), she also features in the amazing CGI trailers for the game. If you haven’t seen them, you absolutely should check them out – just search YouTube, it’s worth it.
There was also some merchandise featuring her including a 3.75″ action figure from Hasbro. The figure itself was very nice, lots of detail, articulation and accessories – the head sculpt however was not pretty, not at all. Luckily she came with a helmeted head as well. 🙂
I decided to draw this on a SketchLife sketch card and wanted to approach the piece in greyscale with pencil shading. As I worked on her I added black ink to a few areas to crispen up some details and to create a more dramatic look. I wanted a stylised form of realism for her.
Please drop me a message in the comments and let me know what you think of this piece and what other Old Republic characters you would be interested in seeing as I would definitely like to draw some more.
I’m so happy to say that our Halloween sketch card set has already sold out! I know there were only very limited numbers of these, but it has been quite a while since I have done anything like this and the level of support has been overwhelming. Thank you everyone, it really means the world to me and I hope the collectors who picked up the packs enjoy their cards.
Time to create some spooky artwork! I’m going to be working on some Halloween themed sketch cards over on my Patreon page and will be posting regular updates and work in progress images over there. You can find my page here – http://www.patreon.com/jackredd
Please feel free to check it out and if you can your support would be very much appreciated as it will help me to keep creating.
This is a brand new direction for me and the butterflies are swirling round my stomach as I type this in a combination of excitement and fear!
I’ve never put myself out there like this before and it has taken a long time for me to psych myself up to hit the launch button, the page has been written, re-written, edited, deleted and set up again over the course of many weeks. But the time has come and I’m hoping that this can be the beginning of something very special. I look forward to being able to create art with and for a group of supporters, where we can explore areas and ideas that appeal to us all and see where my art can lead.
Feel free to check out the page and if it’s something that you do, please consider supporting me. Most of all though, please wish me luck! 🙂
I’m pleased to say that my 2 official Artist Proof sketch cards are now available to purchase from our store here – ReddLife Shop
The Walking Dead Season 4 trading card set is published by Cryptozoic Entertainment.
This will be my final Walking Dead sketch card outing and as always it was a pleasure to work for Crypto. I was one of only 30 artists to work on the set and I only did 16 cards in total – 14 pack inserted cards and 2 Artist Proofs. The sketch cards for this release are very limited with a ratio of just 1 sketch card per every 1006 packs – they are going to be hard to find to say the least!
I’m very excited to say that you can now get your very own t-shirt, mug, phone case or even a throw pillow featuring our original artwork from our newly updated Redbubble store right here – http://www.redbubble.com/people/reddlife/shop

At last I finally had time to do some artwork based on the Destiny video game! I’ve been wanting to for ages, but something always came up. I love the game and am a proud Guardian regularly on patrol throughout the galaxy so I thought it would be fun to draw up some of the characters from that universe. I thought I would start with the stunning Awoken from the Reef, Petra Venj. I love her character design –
