Malak WIP by uncannyknack Malak WIP by uncannyknack
Cleaning up an old concept sketch of Darth Malak from Knights of the Old Republic. One direction the initial design went in eventually led to Darth Malgus. But we played around with ideas until I pushed away from the table and left it to others

Amazing concept, why wasn't it used in game? was it too complex for 2003 technology? can you post more images of this concept?

As I noted above, this rejected design for Malak became the basis for Malgus.

Terrific and compelling.  The eye's just run away with you and your imagination.  Thanks for the look.

This definitely feels more like Malgus than Malak. Either way, it's well executed. The only quibble I have is that the hood is heavily blurred compared to the face; if this is a stylistic choice, then disregard.

This makes me now wonder who would win in a fight Darth Malak or Darth Malgus i personally think Malgus would win.

Does this mean we're getting a KOTOR remake? :la:

So, Malgus is Malak's spin-off? :D Interesting to know. Malgus by far was one of my favest old republic characters.

It is an interesting genealogy. Prior to the prime move we did at Bioware with KOTOR there was little to no creative real estate staked out in that era. A few isolated cases visually but quite scarce. We were put in charge of driving the stake into that space and while I might approach a few elements differently today knowing what I know Star Wars for the most part designs itself and you're along for the ride. The Old Republic is no exception. Many of the designs we broke the spine on and their ancestors are still used in the design universe today, ie Malgus amongst others. Privileged to have been a part of it and to see where it's gone and what it's become in the meantime. Pretty amazing.

Looks more like Darth Malgus of SWTOR.

Hence my mentioning that many of the designs we initially did were used later, both in KOTOR2 and SWTOR
