Bucket Off by Daennika Bucket Off by Daennika
Continuing on my latest mando work here [link] I decided that there should be more black women in the Star Wars universe (because I can't think of any black characters besides Lando Calrissian, Mace Windu and Quinlan Vos, and they're all male).

Anyways what started off as a lazy sketch turned out quite ok so I added some colors. Enjoy!

In this Star Wars novel called "The Cestus Deception" one of the ARC troopers has a child with a black female smuggler. Of course he dies at the end of the novel. :D

Well, actually, there was a Jedi in the prequel films with an especially high melanin count, her name was Adi Gallia. And if memory serves there were also several other women of the same skin complexion in the EU.

How I agree there!

Kit Fisto, Sassae Tiin, Aurra Sing, Ayyla Secura... all are mute!

I have a similar feeling with characters, but I think SW could benefit from more "Asian" humans. ;)

Nice work!

You're right about the black women thing. Even in that list of characters :iconsithwitch13: threw out, they're mostly men.(As are most characters in the SW universe...*grumble*)

Anyway, great job--the cartoony style really works for this tough-looking character.

There's more than those characters! Shalla Nelprin, Belindi Kalenda, Micah Giett, Captain Panaka, Jariah Syn, Ana Blue, Jolee Bindo, are all black. And there's more that I'd remember if I hadn't just woken up from a nap. If nothing else, the prequels have had a lot of non-white actors--Asian, Hispanic, Maori, Indian, etc.

The work itself is awesome, though, very clean lines and colors!

But it's the prequels and I've never heard of them! You have to admit that's pretty hardcore minor character knowledge you just threw around there. But no, I want my characters to stand in the front and to be remembered post-Battle of Yavin.

she looks really great :) and nice pose too.
i agreed with you, Star Wars universe need more black (or other color) women who aren't only as pretty decoration to men, backgrounds etc...

Wow, that was quick! :D

Nice job finishing that, she looks really cool. I dig that rather unique hairstyle, hehe.

And I gotta say, these custom armor plates look even better here than on the previous one. ;) As do the markings. :horns:
