Kylo Ren by ElbenherzArt Kylo Ren by ElbenherzArt
There is so much wrong in my life
And I wish I could turn back time
No time for sorrow, no time to regret

I am drowning in the sands of time
But life goes on day by day
And all my faults will remain

I walk away 
I walk away

From the place I left before
There is nothing that will make me stay

I keep all the memories in my heart
I know they keep me from being free
I walk with the devil deep inside

As long as I am not able to forget

But life goes on day by day
And all my faults will remain.

I wanted to paint him since I went out of The Last Jedi. Adam Driver does an exceptional job in portraying his conflicted and complex character and I can’t wait for episode IX to see how they resolve him. 
Also he has a very interesting, unique face, especially in profile view. I simply wanted to capture that. :) 
It had colors first, but along the way I switched to values. Kind of fitted the mood better.

The text is heavily inspired by Blutengels ‘You walk away’. I just changed it a bit to fit him better.

Excellent work!! :)

You know, now that we know Kylo Ren actually knows calligraphy (confirmed canon in the TLJ Visual Dictionary), the stylized "signature" seems even more fitting.

Eine unglaublich tolle Arbeit!
Du hast den Charakter hervorragend getroffen, vor allem der Ausdruck in seinen Augen spiegelt den Konflikt in ihm und genau wie du, bin ich auch sehr gespannt, wie es mit ihm weitergehen wird.
Das Portrait eines gespaltenen und unsicheren Menschen. Wirklich toll gemacht.
Ich finde deinen Design-Stil und deine Umsetzung total genial! Mir gefällt die Narbe auch sehr, by the way ... sie wirkt sehr echt an der Wange.
Bin begeistert von deiner Arbeit! :)

Auch hier noch mal Danke. :D 
Freut mich, dass er dir gefällt!

Ich hoffe nur, dass sie ihn nicht umbringen, aber eigentlich gehe ich nicht davon aus. Dann würden die zwei Filme davor irgendwie keinen Sinn mehr für mich ergeben.

Ich glaube auch nicht, dass er gekillt wird.
Eher, dass eine Befreiung noch kommt. Vielleicht durch Anakins Geist?
Dass sein Großvater ihm aus dem Ganzen rausholt und Kylo dann Seite an Seite mir Rey kämpft ...
Das könnte ich mir gut vorstellen. ^ ^

Reylo for the win! XD

Ja mal sehen. Ich gehe davon aus, dass die First Order bzw. Hux sich gegen ihn wenden wird. Die zwei können sich ja nicht ausstehen und ich denke Hux wird eine Möglichkeit suchen ihn um die Ecke zu bringen.

YEAAH!! XD XD

Ich glaube deine Variante wird die wahrscheinlichste sein. ;)
Hux is a Bitch! :D
Oder die Geschichte ist eine Kombination aus unseren beiden Ideen. :D
Doch erstmal dürfen wir'ne Weile abwarten, bis wir den wirklichen weiteren Verlauf erfahren und uns die Fortsetzung so lange im Kopfe vorstellen. XD

yout mean by his long nose and thin face? 

(I bet that Adam would be able to play a young Severus Snape, and that Alan Rickman would have liked that idea)

For me his face is beautiful with a bit of dorkiness. :)
Not sure about these Snape comparisions, since I don't see it at all. Except for the hair maybe, but Sherlock also has hair like this.
Adams face is way more feminine and softer than Alans to my eyes.
