Here’s an image I did for a member of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood, a Star Wars club on-line with a focus on computer gaming, writing, and roleplaying. Anyways, this member collects images of his character and thus commissioned one from me. Here’s the final product:
Along the way, I saved various steps I took while creating the image…its interesting to look back and see the progress.
Initial sketch, general layout for the character.
Darkened in certain areas, defining key parts of the Jedi Master. Created the face and head markings.
Finished basic darkening, began coloring in the skin.
Defined clothing and colored under-tunics.
Defined cloak and clothing even more and continued coloring.
Finished clothing definition and coloring.
Thickened lines, shortened middle finger, filled in gaps, added a black background.
Fixed hand and added Force lightning…blue lines, Gaussian blur, faded brush strokes.
Drew lightsaber and added blade. Defined right hand a little more.
Original final rendition with sweet red background.
Re-done final rendition…aged Mejas Doto appropriately…he’s no teenager as the previous version implied.
Thats all she wrote! The picture took about 6 hours on my Wacom Tablet. Much fun was head and it was good to break the tablet in again! Its been far too long.
