Star Wars sketch

Star Wars was on TV tonight, and I doodled this in a corner of my sketchbook. I was interested in the thick sleeves of Luke's tunic, and the way that the little flappy bit below his belt looked. I then did a super-quick colouring job on it, mainly interested in how different layer blending modes effected photographic textures. I think the most interesting aspect of this sketch that I'd like to explore in a later illustration is the idea of looking out from a dark are into a bright area, and the effect the contrast has on the drama in the image.
