Omg, this one was soooo hard to doo, It kept me up almost all night, Thank god its only the face. Drawing anime is one thing, but real people is kinda hard, but hey, I did my best. This is Luke skywalker from Star Wars.
When I landed aboard the Avalon the first thing that struck me was the size of it, those Lucrehulks are HUGE, and yet, it was almost entirely occupied, there were so many ships docked there, many I'd never seen before, it was a true promised land for engine heads, I won't lie, I felt quite giddy, even the different smells in the air, fuel, paint, hell even the grease, I'd gotten used to them, and felt quite at home. It was among this hustle and bustle I met a very important person, Jaeriel, at first I was just drawn to her, uh... Mandalorian Armor... For the life of me I can't recall what she calls it, anyway.... She was a stubborn brat, but there was something about that attitude that I liked, heh, maybe it's because I'm a Corellian, I found her wit entertaining at least, what's more, Orchid liked her too, and she'd been needing a friend since Maya was murdered by the Empire... For the smiles she put on Orchid's face, I am forever grateful to Jaeriel... I do wonder... If long after I'm gone, will you ever read this... Orchid? Jaeriel? ~An extract from Quinn Shara's private journal, dedicated to those she considers her 'family'. -------
At the top is a very quick sketch of Quinn approaching the Avalon, I imagine since it's been refitted to serve as a Rebel base it's surrounded by scaffolding and supports, I dunno if it actually is, but I just thought it'd look cool... I like ships that've got that kind of vibe. XD
Below that is a picture of Quinn in the Avalon's hangar, taking in the sights, sounds, and smells, I threw in lots of ships, Rebel fighters, Freighters, even captured Imperial ships being refitted for the Rebel Alliance! There are a few Expanded Universe Easter Eggs in here, can you spot and name them? XD
Below that is a conversation between Quinn and Jaeriel from their first encounter, I loved their first encounter, it was so fun, I can't give it enough credit! No idea why Jaeriels holding a Hydrospanner here. XD
The rest are just dumb sketches, from a H-Wing, to an Imperial Gladiator-class, to ideas for Imperial ships that've been captured by the Rebellion, and lastly a dreadful pun, Mando'ade, it's like Lemonade! XD (I know a bunch of Mando fans who'll kill me for that one, but I regret nothing. XD)
Anyhow, this was fun, totally not serious besides the stuff that's coloured, I hope ya'll like, and I hope Jaeriel looks alright. (I pray my scanner didn't butcher her skin tone again...) Feedback always appreciated! And I'm working on even more Star Wars stuff!
Image: Star Wars Clone Vehicles Combination Time Taken: About Half an Hour (to put together) About 6 hours (to ink each model individually)
So I made three Star Wars Clone Vehicles today (uploaded already) and I thought they looked pretty cool, but I wondered how good they would look altogether, so I combined the three files in Photoshop and created this lovely new desktop background for myself. I really like this image
Edit: DeviantArt's image re-size function is making it smaller than it actually is, Download for the full size image, which is much better.
Fleeting days of peace, few and far between, you gotta enjoy em' whilst you have em', cuz' you never know, they may very well be your last. Quinn knows that better than anyone, and she does her best to bring joy to her unofficial adopted daughter's life...
Three years have past since the Battle of Yavin, and the destruction of the Death Star at the hands of Red Squadron, the Rebels have firmly established themselves in Echo Base, on the icy planet of Hoth, Quinn and Orchid Shara are finally getting used to the cold, and though the shadow of the Empire is never far behind they have enjoyed a few months of relative calm, that calm cannot last forever though, as Death Squadron draws ever closer, and with it, the Battle of Hoth...
During the battle Quinn reluctantly flies escort to Rebel Transports, having been stationed at Aargonar 3 during the Battle of Yavin she'd wanted a chance to actually fight during the Alliance's darkest hour rather than fly escort yet again... She was also reluctant to leave Orchid, who was ferried aboard one of the evacuation transports, luckily the transport she was aboard, the Quantum Storm made it past the Imperial fleet (If I recall it was the first ship, covered by the Ion Cannon...? :3), and they were reunited soon afterward, much to Quinn's relief.
Yup! More Star Wars OC stuff! Trying my damnedest to make sure their story takes place alongside an accurate Star Wars timeline, is if they were actually there, but, y'know, they weren't! XD
At the time of the Battle of Hoth, Quinn Shara is twenty two years old, and Orchid Shara is nine.
Padawans, Padawans everywhere. --- This one was loots of fun. rarely can I get more than one character in the same image, let alone FOUR! It was originally just the two on the left (Shireen & Quin) buuut then I decided I'd like to add a few more. So here they are!
I doodled them kind of all over the page, so I scanned them, and reorganized them to all be sitting side by side. One of my favorite things about Star Wars has to be the padawans. XD
I didn't want them all to have the exact same colors in their tunics and such, so I did different shades & hues, so they'd each be a little different.
In order from left to right:
Shireen: themostadorablenautolanever. belonging to ~Digiko
Darth Malicious (Idontknowherbyanyothernamethanthat) : looking not-so-much-like-a-sith, (or probably anything like she should) here. belonging to ~xx0pain0xx Sorry if I drew her wrong. I don't know. anything and there weren't any colored reffs, I just assumed she's human. . --- Please do not use my art, or our characters, for any reason, Thank you.
Though Mandos where a rare sight in the Rebellion, Jaeriel was a special case, a Mando-Jedi with quite... Peculiar features, most notably her ears, of course... Orchid thinks they're adorable, and I'm not gonna lie, I'm inclined to agree, it's funny how such a stubborn girl can look so cute! Heh, Jae, if you're reading this, then by the Force, I hope I'm there to see your face, I bet it's a picture, for sure! ~Quinn Shara's journal, a footnote left to tease Jaeriel, hopeful that it would put a smile on her face when she finally found it. -------
More Star Wars stuff! (What else is there, am I right? XD)
This was a sketch that was originally with the doodles from the other day, but wasn't finished, but I decided to finish it last night.... BECAUSE GOOD GOD DO WE NEED SOME COMIC RELIEF AFTER THOSE FEELS!!! Am I right SlingBlade87, rayn44, and Vizu? Jeeeeez, I damn well cried myself to sleep! ;_;
Not much to say honestly though, just Orchid being Orchid, saying stuff out loud without really thinking about it and lacking all awareness of those around her, good thing it's complementary huh! XD
Jaeriel is such a fun character to draw, she's so epic, but I couldn't resist doing some cute things too, because she is adorable herself!
I also threw in some other OCs in the background, there's the towering Zabrak Zomori, the inquisitive Togruta Saki, and at the very back is Isabelle, her nose is plastered after becoming acquainted with Jaeriel's helmet, certainly not the best first impression... ;_;
Some serious notes I'd like to add here, as it's kind of relevant? Quinn often gives Orchid a lot of her meals, since Orchids a kid growing up, Quinn tries to provide the best upbringing she can whilst raising her in a perpetual war, often to do so Quinn goes without, she relies more on field rations than actual meals, thanks to this Orchid maintains a healthy diet necessary for a growing child, the trade off is that Quinn often goes hungry, and as a result during the Rebellion years is borderline underweight, though the field rations are high on energy, and at least sustain her, during the New Republic years though this situation improves vastly. I think most of her friends are unaware of Quinn's situation in this regard, as she keeps it to herself, not wanting to take up extra rations from the already exhausted supplies.
Anyway, this is just meant to be some pointless fun, so I hope ya'll like!
