Wedge Antilles and a ... hovering X-Wing! A collaboration with the very talented =Maquaii. I took far too long to finish it, didn't I?
While I've had other people colour my lineart before (you two know who you are. I'm still waiting for you to post your pictures ), I've never had the pleasure of colouring somebody else's linework - until Maq came up with the idea of this collaboration. Working with somebody else's art is an eye-opening experience. You don't tend to think as much when working on your own drawings because you're already so used to your own style and you know where stuff's going to go, but when you're colouring somebody else's, there's a lot you learn about how other people draw and handle things in the process of working things out for yourself. It's educational. It's fun, too.
Man, how bright do those stars have to be, that you can see them from inside a well-lit hangar??? Among other things! I ask you to suspend your disbelief... just for now.

DISCLAIMER: I did not draw the above picture. All the credit goes to the spectacular *FalconFan for the original artwork, Unacceptable Losses. I merely splotched in the colours.
Anyway, I've been hankering to colour Unacceptable Losses ever since FalconFan put it up in her gallery (correction: I've been itching to colour her artwork in general); when this became known to FF, she encouraged me to tackle the picture.
Basically I left the picture untouched (because it would've been a shame to lose the original textures), although I did lower the opacity a little for the colours to show up better. I did, however, introduce additional textures, brightened the space background so it wouldn't be completely black, and lessened the light/illumination intensity. (Oh, and I also gave Han knuckles; I hope you don't mind, FF).
Thank you, FF. It was a great learning experience, and I hope I didn't maim your picture... too much.

Note to gallery administrators: I have written permission from FalconFan to put up this picture in my gallery. I haven't figured out how to attach it to my picture, so for the time being, it may be viewed here: [link]
So this was supposed to be a kiriban. Only... I screwed up big time because my brain has a nasty tendency to misremember important details. So yeah, I'll be redoing it - with the details *right* this time, LOL! - but in the meantime, hell, since I've already finished this, why not put it up?
A post-K1 Bastila and a somewhat scruffy Revan taking a walk through... yeah, you've guessed it: Dantooine. Ha. And yes, I *know* his robes are shorter than in the game. Call it artistic licence.
Painted on one layer, because I haven't found that missing portion of my brain. It was both unnerving - and yet exhilarating. Kind of like walking a tightrope without a safety net.
