May fourth is a special date for fans of the Star Wars franchise, and designer Chris Bryant, with C. Bryant Designs, and Stephen Hekeler come to the studio to tell Eric Burke all about the Star Wars 501st Legion.
The MidSouth Garrison is part of the 501st Legion, the world’s definitive Imperial costuming organization. Active members occupy the states of Tennessee and Kentucky. This is one of the largest garrisons in the legion, which is made up of over 60 garrisons and 26 outposts totaling over 5500 active members in 47 countries.
Bryant is a freelance graphic artist that specializes in drawing commissions and digital alterations. He’s been drawing since he was young, always wanting to share with everyone.
Bryant made his first sale in middle school, selling a couple Dragon Ball Z pictures he had drawn. From there, his interest in graphic design grew, learning photoshop, illustrator, and other adobe programs.
Within the last 3 years, Bryant started drawing larger scale and recreating the images backgrounds digitally and selling them.
