Well, there's a bit of that steampunk Star Wars going around, you know, and our particular group...well, we do like the Star Wars, and the steampunk, and our GM is just a sucker for a Victorian setting. So when my sister remarked one day how easy it would be, really, to have a planet where people tapped geothermal power and preferred the aesthetic of a simpler time, it simply became a matter of fate.
And of course I had to draw it.
And lo, my steampunk Star Wars series is finished. The final subject is Kedrihm'Val, who fits tidily into the classic niche of 'mystic primitive.' Wise in the primal ways of nature and the soul, he is a stranger to civilization and its technological trappings. Making his way through the modern jungle with the help of his friends, he fights loyally at their side with bare fists and athletic skill.
But they dress him up in a suit anyway. The native needs to look presentable.
He's a Force Adept from a tribal culture--literally a primal mystic. Hence the tattoos and whatnot. I'm glad you like him! I'm quite fond of him myself. I've got some other pictures of him in my gallery; he's one of my favorite characters to draw. Er. Even though I only notice just now that I forgot to darken his skin tone.
And thank you for the compliment on my line work. I feel like I'm making some progress; great to know I'm not just fooling myself.
