Bastila Shan (kotor) by CorbinHunter Bastila Shan (kotor) by CorbinHunter

I worked on this painting for far longer than I care to admit. Knights of the Old Republic has been one of my favourite games since I was 10 years old, and I've always loved Bastila. I painted this by hand and out of imagination, as much of a pain that is. I developed a lot during it, and I hope it's a turning point in my work. Thanks for looking!

Here is more Star Wars stuff:

Love the kotor art! Theres not enough of it out there. ToR is my favorite period in star wars and i wish disney would focus more on it but they're too busy pushing their agendas with shitty sequel films

CorbinHunter last time I checked lightsabers don't leave behind blood coz they instantly coulderise the wound so the only way she would have blood on her hand is if she physically punched the rap out of the dude... If that wasnt was you were going for sorry for overthinking it but if you were intending... Fucking brutal, fucking brutal dude. Jesus getting beaten the shit out of by Bastila Fucking Shan would...not be fun

If you watched the swtor cinematics you might have noticed that when senya is fighting the guards while trying to rescue vaylin most of the time she was hitting them physically rather than using her saber. Given the amount of physical moves used in the entire cinematic I think its reasonable to say that the old force users had a much more physical fighting style.. Hence the blood

You hit the head on the nail. My concept was that she had used the Force in some questionable ways, hinting at her darker streak. I see people arguing about how lightsabers don't leave blood all the time on this image, and they are all missing the point.

Excellent; great detail! Do you mind if I use part of the image in a KotOR mod that alters Bastila's ingame portrait? Thanks.

If it's free and not for sale, go for it. Please include some form of credit in the about section or something like that. If needed, I have a few more KOTOR character portraits in my gallery as well.

You can download a fairly large copy here, but it's the largest version I give out to avoid theft, etc.. Full version is 9,000 px tall and I use it for prints and so on.

I LOVE the subtle details on this. The blood on her hand and the Sith eyes. Also the location, looks like a very korriban sith tomb-esk area. I think this sums up Bastila Shan very well, on the out side she looks and acts like a Jedi but inside she has a lot of anger and emotions. Its an Beautiful & amazing piece of work!

A-MA-ZING! No really, you just.. It looks so real, and with that light and the blood and the hair, and oh gosh, I hope someday I will be able to do this too :X You said you painted this by hand, does that mean it isn't done with a graphics tablet or so? Just, paint on canvas? It's sooooo awesome!

Hello, glad you like it! Thanks for the comment. I promise you that with a bit of practice and dedication, you can easily surpass me, haha. It's digital -- hand-painted on a Cintiq. When I say "hand-painted" or "painted from scratch", I basically just mean that no photos, photo textures or anything like that are used. Just regular brushes, some filters and lots and lots of layers.

I'm imagining a magnetically contained plasma blade cutting someone, cauterizing the wound, then the blood pressure causes the cauterization to burst open, getting blood all over.

That explanation definitely works for me. Personally, I like to imagine she used more than just her lightsaber to kill the dudes. Maybe some messy force stuff or very intense unarmed strikes, or a combination.
