This was originally a sketch for a character I played briefly, but I later designed a different outfit for her. Therefore, when I decided to color this sketch, I turned her into an Arkanian just to illustrate a race I hadn't done before.
Ok, WOW!, not to mention hot... nice stuff here, you make me sick with your drawing prowess. Curse you! (not really) for being so good... :-(
Why don't you uh.. cool it with the awesome already? You're making the rest of us look bad.
How come you never introduced her to Jo'luk? From the looks of her, he'd have liked her a lot...
Very well done. Talk about raising the bar. Great look to the outfit. Sexy and sleek, but very star-warsy functional looking as well.
This picture reminds me of the computer game 'No one lives forever' set in a 60's James Bond / Austin Powers spy era. Its gotta be the outfit and the bell-bottom pants. But hey, its all good! Very starwarsy. (Not to mention the eye-catching rogue smuggler type that'd catch Han Solo's eye, and make Leia fire blaster bolts at Han for the next 5 parsecs for noticing this gal. =) )
The particular tune by Madonna comes to mind, "Beautiful Stranger", which was one one of the Austin Powers soundtracks.
"Haven’t we met?
You’re some kind of beautiful stranger
You could be good for me
I’ve had the taste for danger
If I’m smart then I’ll run away
But I’m not so I guess I’ll stay
I’ll take my chance on a beautiful stranger
I looked into your eyes
And my world came tumbling down
You’re the devil in disguise
That’s why I’m singing this song"
:edit: couldn't get the italic code to work. ahh well. ;)
I added the italics for you. You have to do it with <em>.
Gotcha! (i'm a bit rusty with my html tags at the moment, and I usually use the tag for italics when hand-coding my web page. Ahah, figures, when using dreamweaver's tools, it too uses the 'em' tag. I honestly didn't realize that.)
Thx Eclipse. ;)
This is definately a great piece, though I would like to point out that Arcanians only have four fingers, including the thumb, on each hand, not five fingers. Look at pictures of Master Arca Jeth from Tales of the Jedi: Knights of the Old Republic.
Haha...you're right, Tramp. I read the description in the Alien Anthology, but I guess I thought "four-fingered" hand meant four fingers, not including the thumb. Woops.
Maybe she's a human who is an Arcanian 'wannabe'. Y'know, hair bleech, contact lenses...
there are arcanian subspecies, she seems to be one of those
Is this a new background?
Yep. I'm in the process of adding backgrounds to a lot of my old SW pieces. If you look through my gallery you'll see a few more.
Well, I love it more every time I see her. I mean it.
Oh, and slick move erasing a finger on each hand. NOW you're a revisionist worthy of George Lucas. ;)
Wow, my man...there is SO much spam on this!
Real good keep it up. :)
One of my favorite pics, I really love the whole concept. The contrast between the figure and the background really make this piece stand out for me.
Great job. :)
Do you have her Holo-number by the way. ;)
"Creation is a Gift... Use it well."
I'm new to the forum... just had to say, I can't stop checking this featured piece out. Excellent drawing, love the outfit design & the colour work is most enviable. The retro look to the clothing is superb, it retains a strong link to the feel of the original SW trilogy costumes, yet not dated to it. Well done.
