Jedi Intro Cierra Reylen
Cierra Reylen was a Jedi. She was the mother of Brit Brega and played a major role in the Clone Wars She sided with the clusterists of the Stern Sector along with a few others. This piece is another element for the mock coverposter of the book.
Studying Struzans style a little more these days. Not his linework but his color choices and hotspots.
well, there's really nothing to critique here lol! This is a really lovely piece. What really grabs me is her facial expression, something lightly intense. Like she's focusing on a potential target or using her eyes to tell her opponent, "Try it. Just try it."
Some more comments: Her hair is really nice! I hate drawing hair, so I know that you put some work into making it look real. I think you get an A+ for this one!
It's like....photoreal!! Again, you inspire me to improve!
I agree. This looks so real. A most excellent picture you have done and the story continues for intriguing characters you have created. What else is in Brit Brega's past? One can only guess.
Thanks. The comments you all give are great, and definite fuel to get me to the next illustration.
This is a gorgeous piece!
Very nice! She looks regal and hip at the same time.
I honestly can't tell if there is a photo used or not. It looks like you used a photo, but then, it doesn't. Either way it's great work. I guess if you can't tell, that's how you know it's good.
I did use a couple web pics of actress Brooke Langton and a few of Mace Windu's Jedi robes. I spent around 7 hours working the lighting and tone.
Were the photos used just as reference, or as part of the final? I honestly can't tell. And like I said earlier, if you used a photo, and I can't tell, It's great work, and if you didn't, it's great work. You really can't lose, hehe.
