We've finally discovered the location of the "Nightmare", she lies hidden in a Nebula, licking her wounds... Now is the time to strike, whilst the beast is wounded we'll seize her for ourselves! Our main targets are the areas around the scaffolding, Bombers, your objective is to create a breach big enough to get infantry transports through, and then engage the enemy Star Destroyer escorts. Spotter Squadron, your ships are carrying Buoys, we have a few battle-cruisers hidden deep within the Nebula, they'll lock onto those buoys after they've been deployed, you'll drop them near the enemy's Star Destroyer escorts. Infantry, once you're inside your goal is to capture key system controls, weapons systems being priority, once you have control of their weapons turn them on their fleet to draw pressure off our fighters, I doubt they'll fire on their own flagship, it's the backbone of their fleet, once it falls they'll either surrender, or flee. Everyone else, do your best to provide cover. One final word, do not attempt to take the Bridge until I've boarded, "Nightmare" is commanded by a Dark Jedi, she's inexperienced at command, and mentally unstable, but incredibly powerful in close combat and the Force, I will take her myself. -Quinn Shara, Operation: Dream Catcher briefing. -------
Yay, Star Wars OC stuffs! This is an operation where Quinn's star shines it's brightest, her most ambitious undertaking, and greatest personal triumph (besides raising Orchid), the capture of the Super Star Destroyer Nightmare and it's fleet, as well as the surrender of her rival Kiri Starchaser.
In a bold attempt to seize assets for the New Republic, Quinn planned an ambitious strategy to capture Nightmare and it's fleet, however her true motive was to confront Kiri, and redeem her; at Endor she had sensed what Kiri really was, a scared girl trapped in darkness, she now wanted only to save her from her misery, and train her to use the Force for good.
After the operation the captured Super Star Destroyer was renamed Goldsaber in honour of Quinn's Goldsaber Squadron, however it's name would be changed again after the death of the redeemed Kiri Starchaser, during the Yuuzhan Vong war it was renamed the Starchaser in her memory.
------- Phew! This was fun, a little tricky getting the perspectives of the ships right, and the little details, but yeah, it was fun. The idea wasn't actually inspired from anything Star Wars, but rather the second Attack on Titan opening theme! www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxOpp_… I listened to it again recently and (Particularly around 0:45) imagined hundreds of X-Wings flying at blistering speeds through a brilliant golden nebula to engage a massive Imperial force, and viola', this was born. ^_^ Gotta say, of all the awesome Star Wars ships X-wings and Y-wings are still my favourite, they got that retro vibe, like a Vespa-scooter, or a Volkswagen-camper, y'know? And yeah, if you read the above you can probably tell that the Extended Universe is still my headcanon.
I like how Quinn looks in the corner, she's issuing the order to CHARGE! XD I gave her helmet an old Jedi insignia on the side too, cuz' y'know, she's a Jedi. Also I really love the Imperial Battle-Cruiser's design, so I had to draw a few flanking the Nightmare.
Anyway, though the background is blergh, I'm happy enough with everything else, and I hope ya'll like!
As I've said before, Sango is my favorite character on Inuyasha. What's not to love about a hot, cool, kickass, hot, demon-slayer, who . . . . y'know . . . . . . happens to be hot
And anyone who knows her story knows she has a perfect set up for falling to the dark side. I didn't even have to change her outfit (well, I just added the cape for Sith effect )
This pic took me much longer to color than I thought. From the moment I started, it probably took me about 4 and half hours. Then maybe another 40 minutes to copy the colors and paste them onto the "masked Sango" pic, also coloring the mask. Lightsabers have become pretty easy for me to do. It probably took less than 20 minutes to do the sabers on one pic and then copy/paste them onto the other pic.
I wanted both pics to be identical with the exception of her mask.
