Well.... Iv noticed people take the Rodian's not to seriuosly so I tought ill make some mean Rodian jedi too see how these two comes toghter... Hope you like it. - first drawing made with my new first ever WACOM :] !
I think the best jedi masters are not the stuffy holier-than-thou types who sit at the top of some giant tower and boss people around. The ones who travel the galaxy, going places and seeing things and meeting people are the ones I like. Or they can hermit themselves away from the civilized galaxy to develop a more personal relationship with the force. I think developing one's force potential in the jedi order is like trying to find god in a church; you're only going to find the god that the clergy shows you. That's this fellow's philosophy, and he's all the better for it.
Then again, he's better off learning at the temple than as a sith. Those guys have MAJOR issues, lol.
Continuing to explore digital painting possibilities. This fellow is a quarren jedi and a mechanic/technician. I imagine not every jedi is a warrior-monk-peacekeeper. Some of them must have other skills and jobs, right? So I made one who is a tech-head first, and a jedi second. I imagine this cranky quarren squatting over a broken droid in the temple basement, trying to quickly fix it so he can move on to the other hundred tasks that require a skilled gear-head. Hey, who else is gonna do it?
This is a Sith concept character of my own devising. My goal sitting down to make this was to make a sith lord that was visually interesting, like they used to be; long long ago with an art team far, far away. I'm absolutely SICK of seeing the same visual concept rehashed over and over again to make Sith. So I tried to not use the standard 'red and black w/ tattoos and tribal designs' formula that has been beaten into our brains.
Sorry for the nerd rage there.
He's an anzati, a race used by the clone wars comics a lot. (I also wanted to break from strictly human Sith lords.) If you don't know what they are, you should Wookiepedia it. They're basically the vampires of Star Wars.
