Aoi is quite stylin as a Blademaster here. I wanted to work on my backgrounds badly and think my cloudscapes are improving a bit more.
For those who have not yet read any of the Star Wars extended universe books the shorter blade is a defensive weapon called a Shoto. Luke Skywalker created it as a means to defend himself against an insidious weapon called a Light Whip used by a dark lady of the Sith name of Lumiya.
Character lineart was done back in December 2011. I wanted to finish it before the end of this year as a way to push myself. And that background was definitely one bloody-ass challenge.
I don't do well with cityscapes. I haven't really found my style for 'em. So...this'll have to do for now. x_x
But here we have Uni in yet another alternate universe. Aaand yeah, the title's a play on a few things: the line "These aren't the droids you're looking for," from Star Wars episode 4, and then my character's name and location.
I was inspired to draw this because I couldn't stop listening to this: [link] Uni won't actually end up in the Star Wars universe in her story.
The character took me about 7 hours. And the background... I worked on that son of a bitch throughout the entire Star Wars movie series. All 6 episodes. So put all those hours together...minus an hour or two. That's how long it took me to figure out how I wanted to do the bg. And it's still subpar. -_- I have a lot to work on.
Also, I'm aware jedi knights aren't typically adorned with fancy metal like that...but this is Uni we're talking about. :< She's always shiny.
I'll share this old thing again, too, just for fun:
Sailor Universe belongs to me~ Coruscant belongs to Lucasfilm~
