"Do you really think you can just walk back in here and expect us all to cooperate after what you did?"
So this is the last of a series of portraits of the characters from the Ziva Payvan series by EJ Fisch. I'm sure I'll do more someday, but right now I've got a ton of schoolwork to focus on as the term is winding down so I figured this would be a good stopping point.
This is Intelligence Officer Zinnarana "Zinni" Vax. People often can't tell just by looking at her what a little fireball she is. She's a lot smaller than the other characters but what she lacks in size she makes up for in brains. As an Intelligence Officer, her primary role is manning the computer, but she's also plenty capable of getting down and dirty with the rest of the team and shooting and blowing stuff up (that's her favorite part ). She's sort of spunky and sarcastic but is also very good at what she does.
The hair was a tad tricky and I probably should have spent a little more time on it, what with all the highlights and all. But I think it turned out okay in the end. I ended up changing the shape of her lips and nose a bit, and then I changed the lips again because it ended up looking like someone I went to high school with and it creeped me out
Done over 2 days, probably about 4 hours, in GIMP with my Wacom tablet.
I don't know how I feel about the finished product... Oh well, what do you think? Ideas for improvement? I don't like foreshortening... ;__; It's such a pain sometimes.
Name: Aleon Yawoo Age: 26 Sex: Female Rank: Jedi Knight Type: Sentenial Homeplanet: Osarian (Similar to Earth) Homeplanet info: Is in the same ring of planets as Naboo and does actually exist according to the plot lines of existing starwars merchandise. Weilds: Duel light sabers. Saber crystal: Yellow (Mined from her homeplanet) Note: The braid at the back of the head, at the base of the neck, is an Osarian custom.
Aleon grew up on Osarian, a "rebel" princess of sorts, finding the racism on her planet disturbing as a child. When she was born, her father's servant (each member of the family has a servant of the "other" race on the planet of the opposite gender, "ownership" goes by birth when possible) had a son who was two years older than her, and he was then branded to belong to the 5th child of the Royal Family. Daeson, her servant, became her most valuable friend, and vice versa. Although having to keep his distance, else he be beaten or whipped, he tried to be as close with her as possible. On Aleon's 7th birthday, as is customary for the coming of age, she was given veto power to give one command that would be obeyed, even by the King, as long as it didn't include death or something that threatened his rule or family. Aleon ordered, after Daeson received several lashes because he talked back to an older servant in protection of his "master", she ordered that from that day forward he would be her advisor and would answer to only her and no one else would touch him. This infuriated the Royal Family, though it kept within the laws of the "wish", because Daeson's race was lesser and inferior, however, the law was obeyed... usually. She could not see the rule enforced, due to her rank in the Royal Family.
When Jedi, who were passing through, realized how high her midi-chlorian count was so high. Since she was royalty, she wasn't allowed to become a jedi, but she and Deason (who she ordered to follow her as he would probably be put to death without her there) stowed away on the Jedi's ship. After her begging and the counsel's disputes, she was allowed to become a Jedi... and then they tested Daeson's midi-chlorian count was equally as high -- So they finally would become complete equals as Jedi and the royal family did not learn where the missing princess went until Aleon and Daeson became knights.
Though Jedi are never to "love" the two friends hold a dangerous connection for Jedi in their friendship -- they almost need each other, however, the connection and familiarity with one another's minds also proves useful. A truly double edged sword.
Older works: I think I've really improved since these.... : )
A team of Republic archeologists exploring an ancient city on a remote planet discovered a series of abandoned underground tunnels, where the beasts that had made them their lairs were particularly vicious. A young Padawan was sent to investigate, and she found an artifact of the Dark Side, left by a Sith Lord centuries prior, when he had tried to conquer this world. Now, the creatures living here had been twisted by the dark energies, and transformed into ferocious monsters.
A friend of mine told me they had a dream where Ahsoka was dressed in a Star Trek uniform and so I was inspired to draw just that. Five hours and a hundred reference picures later... here she is! Not sure on what background to give her yet... Any suggestions?
A lot of people in the Empire wonder how Lady Larima rose in rank so quickly. It seemed like everything always goes her way. Whenever she has an enemy, whether in the Sith or amongst the Republic, they always die from a mysterious death. She constantly forges alliances to grow her own sphere of influence, and their enemies also seem to vanish at an alarming rate.
In truth, she spent many years gathering some of the most promising Force users to create an all female assassin cult. Hidden on a remote corner of the planet Lehon, in an abandoned temple, she trains them to be the best Sith Assassins in the Galaxy, better than even what the Korriban Academy can provide, and then uses them to be her tools of destruction.
They are completely loyal to their Mistress, who in turn teaches them to focus their passions into Force energies, in order to accomplish their missions with deadly efficacy.
