Sketches from the Park – Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Disney Parks for the original post...

From time to time I will be doing some Plein Air painting (from the field), from a new, inspiring location in the Disney Parks. I will share my sketches and experiences here on the blog each time. Today, I continue my “Sketches from the Park” series as I visited Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

When I was young I had a toy version of the Millennium Falcon that I loved to play with (ok, I still have it).  So, naturally, I decided to sit down across from the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy for my sketching session today. I wanted to capture some quick sketches of the Falcon with the spires of Batuu rising up in the distance. First, was a quick ink and watercolor sketch in my small travel-sized sketchbook just to get things moving. I kept it quick and loose and just used one sepia-toned color to give it some life. After that, I got out my “datapad” to do a digital sketch with a little more detail and color from that same location.

Check out the time-lapse below of this digital sketch to see exactly how it was created.

I had a great time visiting Black Spire today to sketch a bit and enjoy the views. I hope you enjoy the art and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for my next post from a new location in our “Sketches from the Park” series. See ya next time!

That's all folks!
