This is the question that I often ask myself. Is it because I can really draw or is it because I mainly draw the Twi'leks from Star Wars? Me , I think that it's bit of both. Well , as I said many times before I mainly draw Twi'lek females from Star Wars. 
The reason why I draw Twi'lek females? I remember the first time I saw Star Wars episode 6,  especially the part where Oola gets eaten by the Rancor . I asked myself who the hell is she and got extremely curios why was she eaten. I then learned that she was a member of the Twi'lek race and that she was a slave. I asked myself if I could draw members of her race. Most of you have seen my first attempts and know that they weren't so great. But I worked myself and got better. It took a lot of my time and a lot of my energy. So , when people see my new work ,  they ask me how is it that I can draw so well. Guys , it takes time to improve and learn but you must never doubt or loose faith because that is your real enemy.

That is one of the main reasons why I continue to draw. But back to the topic. One of the main reasons why I decided to focus especially on the Twi'lek race is because I learned that they have a bad reputation. I must disagree. Not all of them are scum , prostitutes and slaves. Just look at my work. Most of my characters aren't slaves , scum and prostitutes. And those who have that history , changed. Now I have met a lot of people who create Twi'lek drawings or images and learned that you cannot judge people by the way they create their art. Me, I just hate people who draw Twi'leks being abused and humiliated. That  is my opinion.

Now I know that they are fiction but still. Just imagine somebody abused you and humiliated you. You wouldn't be happy. With that said my characters have personalities based on people that I met. I am talking about the characters that I have created.
As an example I will name some my characters. Ardana Zian has bits of my personality . She is stubborn and she always thinks that she is right but sometimes she just needs  some advice. Chataya has the  attribute of my mother. People come to her for advice or just to talk to her. She always know what to say to people and how to help them with their problems. Just as my mother.
So with all that said I think that you like my art and I am happy that you like it.

Wow , that is awesome. It truelly makes me so happy that you like my work. And you also like Twi'leks ? That Is so awesome. Yes , they are just so amazing and I do not understand the people who hate them. I just love drawing them . It makes me so happy when I create a them. And especially when people like my artworks that feeling . Hmm , it is just awesome. But the competition is very big and very hard. Most of the guys that create Twi'leks use digital and what to say. I have to work really hard to stay in track with them. But no matter if the Twi'lek girl is done in digital or traditional style she is still awesome. But as I said it's very hard to stay in track with them.
And you would like my work even if I drew cars? That is so awesome and sweet. You are truelly a friend.
Thanks for everything .
You'rs Oliver Wacey aka Dwpor. ;-)

True that but you see. It is very hard to stop when you have fallen in love with the Twi'leks. It very difficult to stop now . It just like a addiction . :-(

You don't need to stop completely you just need to use your talent for other things.

Yes , I think that is so true. I mean it does take lots of my energy and time but I am always rewarded by the great people here . And the comic style? That is just a bonus. I am a bit of a joker myself. :-)
