Let the Sith win by Daennika Let the Sith win by Daennika
This took less time than I planned! FYI, started sketching it on my sketchbook 2 days ago, scanned and inked yesterday. Today at 1800 the colors and effects are complete! So if you do the maths, I spend 1 and a half days to draw a really cool character with a fair amount of detail.

This belongs to LucasArts/BioWare and was inspired by the "Deceived" trailer for The Old Republic. Look it up, I'm too lazy to copy URLs.

(the pose is the one you see in The Force Unleashed when you block :D)

I love the silver filigree pattern on the mask, and I'm looking to find a blown up version of it. I know I've seen it somewhere... You know where I can find it or a close up of the mask?

So, no, they didn't.

Not exactly...he he...the post Jacen arc right now is showing how the new "one" Sith are rising from the shadows...lead by one particular character that Anakin Skywalker fought alongside during the Clone Wars...the Jedi are being hunted down this time to extinction...and those that do survive join the new Galactic Empire...which is lead..by the descendent of Jaina and Jagged Fel...the Fel Emperors reign...and the stormtrooper finally gets to become competent smart and the ultimate Jedi Killer.
Oh they do come back.

Nevermind the spoilers, I want to read that part of the storyline that you just described. I did read a bit of Legacy of the Force but I got sick of the Jaina chapters.

Competent and smart Stormtroopers CAN I HAS?!?!!11!1!!

Epic win, you really should do more Sith stuff. Mando/Sith character mebbe?
Reply
:icondaennika:
Daennika Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2010
Mando/Sith.... Explain to me why that doesn't compute in my mind.

I think the Sith are so full of themselves they wouldn't follow any other code or culture than their own, and a Mando is too practical and gear-relying to start going through the whole "path of the dark side" with the red lightsaber and everything.

*Shrug* maybe you got your own reasons to like the concept, I don't want to go there.

Eh, it's not so much the character of it, just the look. If you wanted to go into detail about it you might have some kind of Dark-Side-Jusik, I dunno. It's just the idea of Sith/Mando looks being merged into one glorious pile of shining mush.

SIGH, I'm in love. You did an excellent job on the helmet detailing, and I love the pose. You also gave him Wolverine claws. Noice.

I wasn't expecting the red on his robes. I don't know why, I always see robes as drab and boring. I LIKE IT. :)

Yay, that means I managed to make that ugly shaped mask lovable. I hated it at first because it looks so ALIEN and MEAN :(

Gotta love the flower effect, though ;P

That's shab'la awesome. How hard was the mask to do?
Reply
:icondaennika:
Daennika Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2010
Not very hard: I cut out the mask section of that scan picture I linked in the WIP, then layered it in my Photoshop file with low opacity, free-transformed it to adapt the drawing to my character's mask and that's how I was able to copy the flower pattern, drawing on top of it. Then, I duplicated my flowers and mirrored them for the second half of the mask + free transform. So, technically, the mask flowers are almost perfectly symmetrical.

Lex-The-Bear Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2010
Wow, nice. Sounds like what they did with Vader's mask in ROTS - worked on one half to get it perfect, then mirrored it to get a complete mask.

It'd be very cool to see a complete set of armour done with that pattern, but I'd imagine it to be very difficult, having to fit such complex patterns into different pieces of armour, with the different shapes and areas to fit the differing surfaces. I've seen a design that someone did for a character in my story, Mando armour covered in filigree. Very ornate, if not particularly practical. Looks damn cool.

Sorry, got a bit carried away there :P

I'd be interested in seeing that armor!

As for the Vader mask, I had no idea! Thanks for sharing that info with me. EGO BOOST

Haha, you're welcome. I have a tendency to watch DVD extras, so I pick up lots of useless info like that. Like, Viggo Mortenson (Aragorn from LOTR) became an actual accomplished swordsman during filming and used to carry his sword around with him even when he wasn't filming, and nearly got himself arrested a few times when members of the public noticed he had his sword on him :P

I actually have a semi-rough draft of the armour somewhere, I'll shoot you a copy in a Note if you like, but the person that did it has said they might revisit it and get it finished up etc, so here's hoping i can get their shebs in gear :D
