  1. Germi91, with all due respect, my responses in my last post was more calm than some postings I've seen in this whole board. Therefore, I do not appreciate the condescending tone in your reply, especially when you choose to disregard the main point of my response. Criticism, if it is genuinely made in the spirit of providing an artist with the means to improve, has to be constructive. Anyone can give them out, be they a corporate CEO or a sheep farmer, but how is the recipient supposed to act on it if nothing about the weakness or mistake is elaborated, or even suggestions of improvement are given? Let me re-iterate it again: When you say "the others aren't as well drawn", what specifically are you referring to? Is it that their heads are too big for the body? Are their facial features assymetrical? Are the body proportions unbalanced? Is the lighting of the art off? Is the color scheme chaotic? And better yet, offer suggestions of improvement. Only then is a critique fulfills a functional purpose. I'm still a developing artist, and by no means am I perfect in my craft. But if I am to take these criticisms seriously, then let they be made in the spirit of improvement, and not just as a display of rhetoric (or worse, a case of "Just because I CAN").
  2. Though I may be a Carth fan, I think my 'retaliation reflex' has been severely damaged by the many instances of obsessive, excessive fangirling I've seen ( To quote Holden McNeil: Fictional characters. F-I-C-T-I-O-N-A-L CHARACTERS!!). I actually LIKE the fact he's being bashed here ^o^ Carth needs to learn to use a bit of glue
  3. Having my own thread has nothing to do with being arrogant in any way, though it's easy for someone to just say that from out of the blue. The way I see it, the reasons why this 'personal thread' exists are: 1) I post a lot of art on each update, which in the past can be a up to 4 pics within a few updates in a week. My older thread reached 50+ pages (containing more than 40-50 artworks I made) on its own before being locked for length by the moderators. Therefore, posting solely in this thread helps to avoid flooding art threads that are shared by various individuals. 2) Most of my scene/comic art depict storyline spoilers, which would make them inappropriate to be posted in the Fan Art thread, which in turn is located in the General section of the forums. God-forbid, I'll then be chastised for posting spoilers! 3) The Mods haven't voiced their objections to this thread in its almost a whole year of existence, so until they say otherwise, I wouldn't mind keeping it as it is. There you go. Dude, Revan and Exile are whoever players want them to be: male or female, black or white, proper or cheeky or thuglike, saint or sinner. That's why we have those adjustable options in the Character Creation Screen, alignment meter, and gender/alignment-specific responses. I've drawn and played both genders of Revan and Exile, but it just so happens I'm more partial to the female versions. Enha Dyone: Thanks for your interest, but I won't be converting EXILE into PDF format for download until Summer 2006. Blank: Thank you! And yeah, drawing is a difficult business! I still look at my older art from 10 years ago and remember how easy it was to give up back then. Petay, Darkside, Gabrielle, Mothman, julianw, Zulu_86, julonia17, MasterRevan,: Thanks Yep, they're temporary; I'll be erasing them after the colors for a certain section is complete. I just leave them in initially so that I won't have to worry about making a conscious effort of staying within the lines. And my bad, it shoulda been Painter IX (skipped a few versions >.<). I was using Photoshop to paint in the past, but I've recently gone back to my first painting love *hugs painter* Germi91: Though I welcome criticisms, I would appreciate it more if you could offer the constructive variety. When you say 'the others aren't as well drawn', can you elaborate on why you think that is so? Like for me, I can see anatomical mistakes in the Ulic/Exile piece, as Exile's torso is a bit long, making her arms look too short even when folded (will fix 'em while I paint, that's the beauty of being in progress). Only with specifics can I reflect on mistakes that my eyes may have missed. Calax: Ouuuch, dude, Eisu's a guy ^_^;; Anyway, not too sure if you people have seen these that I made a while ago... What if, during the meeting before Exile's trip to Malachor V...Carth finally had enough of waiting for Revan? And so was Exile when it came to Atton? And at that same moment, Revan felt a huge disturbance in the Forces, and raced quickly to the arms of her Carthy-Poo, only to discover... Yeep. Okay, that was a long post ^_^ Gotta get back to work! Thanks for viewing.
  4. Auuugh, it's been a while @_0 Anyway, finally manage to get a widdle time off from work to post stuff. Been doing work-related art fulltime that I actually didn't get to do as much KOTOR art as I wanted to other than a few here and there. Been coloring my old Ulic Qel-Droma and Exile for a friend on and off using Painter IX (not XI @_@)....haven't had the chance to continue it since early September. Maybe I'll get back to working on it soon. With the lineart Without the lineart....WHERE'S ULIC?!! Lineart of FemRevan and FemEcile. Was planning to paint it as well, but work stole me away before I could do so... Click for larger image A quick painting of Atton I did just now using Painter IX. I'm looking forward to do more of these Okay gotta sleep. Thanks for viewing.
  5. Huh, still not locked yet. Well, I shall chance another update...while I'm still up at 5 am T_T My unfinished entry for the past 'Fairytales' Dueling Circle Challenge at Kotorfanmedia.com, featuring Exile as Beauty and Atton as the transformed Beast. Male Revan, looking smug and all in the Qel-Droma Robe. Big Sister Revan has an important message for younglings everywhere! Male and Female Revan, drawn with photos of actors Daniel Wu and Evangeline Lilly as respective references. Whatever it is, they didn't resemble a bit like the references, but I suppose that's a good thing? Enjoy, and thanks for viewing~
  6. Huh, it's still not locked for length yet. Maybe I'll just add ANOTHER sketch ^0^ "Revan thinks Carth needs to work a bit for her forgiveness after being such a pain on the backside ^_^ " Only FemRevan players will get this classic scene in K1 ^0^ Well, currently I'm freelancing full time for a local comics magazine. I'm in the middle of working on an episodic story; You can see sample pages in the links below: Hey, here's a page! OMG, another page!
  7. This'll probably be the last update before the mods lock this thread for length, so here goes... New pics!Excuse the dodgy resolution, but I took these with my brother's digicam since I'm currently at my hometown with no scanner access at the moment T_T Will replace with proper pics when I go back home. Exile trying to break up the fight between Atton and Disciple. Di's hair looks a bit like LHME's mullet....must remind myself to think of the pseudo-page boy hair next time T_T A scene from the Ravager Confrontation, partly sketched in the car during my journey, and finished when I reached my house. I'll probably ink it (or paint it even?) when I have the time. Just felt like drawing Visas for once. Colored with markers. Enjoy! Work resumes tomorrow buhuhu T_T
  8. Just to clarify one thing: I draw comics.
  9. Gah, quick post! Something you fellas and dames would find interesting: KNIGHTS is now available in PDF format! Okay, I'm out!
  10. Quick post! Just finished my entry for this week's Duelling Circle Challenge at Kotorfanmedia.com. I was rummaging through some old sketches when I chanced upon these unfinished comic pages. Seeing that it's related to this week's "Full Monty" theme, voila! Got it done :3 Click on the thumbnails to see the pages, and enjoy! Page 1 Page 2
  11. Thanks! About your question, I use this type of brush pen manufactured by Tombow. Tombow brush pen It's widely available in my neighbourhood, but I'm not sure about the US. You can maybe check the nearest Japanese bookstore for it perhaps?
  12. Patience, Padawan...please wait for a little bit longer... **** Oooh, my aching legsss. I went brisk walking for 5 rounds later yesterday afternoon, and though I am super exhausted I haven't gotten any rest yet...I kinda realized that I have so much stuff that I need to complete in these next few weeks, so I'm in a sort-of 'panic' mode atm. I wish I had more hours in a day, mamma mia! So, pic plug ahoys. Click for larger image Disciple looks so puppy-doggish @_0 And...I wonder if I've posted these thumbnails before? Female Revan Atris Atton and Exile LS Atton DS Atton HEE. Hopefully these will be enough to last till the next update T_T Anyways, thanks for your comments on the Revan-Duron-Shaela artwork! Mothman: About Revan in her Star Forge robes,; Yes, I've drawn her in it before, but instead of fighting Malak, she was fighting DS Bastila. I'm not sure where it is atm though...if I find it, I'll post it up. Nartwark: About the texture; I did the primary colouring in Painter IX, so I could play with the many paper textures that were appliable. It works nicely when I went for the watercolor-esque technique. Calax: Actually, I do commissions, so I guess that includes selling sketches. But currently I'm fully booked up to my neck, and having to work as a comic artist for a living makes it even more challenging @_@ Petay12: I've been drawing for 15 years if you count from the day I set my mind to draw as a lifelong passion, and 21 if it's since my wall-scribbling toddler days Kaerie: Thanks! As for my Revan and Exile, I actually prefer not to use the names I give them in my comics/etc, but if you're curious...it's: *Revan = Shujinko Bhaal (Shujinko means 'main character' in Japanese, and Bhaal is...a tribute to Baldur's Gate II :D) *Exile = Aisha Delita (Aisha is Arabic for 'Life', being the opposite of Nihilus' destructive characteristic, and Delita because I played too much Final Fantasy Tactics years ago.) Aaah, the wonderful world of name punnage :3
  13. Gaaah, it's 5 am, I haven't slept for 20 hours and my shoulder's aching. So this will be very, very de brief T_T Had an urging this afternoon to draw Revan in the Qel-Droma robes (and using the Solari crystal in her right lightsaber), with the tragic Shaela-Nur and Duron Qel-Droma in the background, but I only managed to do it around 3 am just now after I finished all my work T_T I call this piece "Never in Vain", referring to the relics/legacies the tragic couple left behind for Revan long after their deaths many years ago. (Shaela-Nur and Duron Qel-Droma designs are based on the ones that appeared in the KOTOR comic in Star Wars Tales #23) Also, for those who're wondering about my language proficiency, I'm very fluent in English because I was raised in an English-speaking household. I consider it my first language, while my native language is second. I'm exposed to ample helpings of Pop Culture from both sides of the Atlantic, so I understand both American and British colloquialisms. Arrr, gotta GOTTA sleep. And thanks for popping in this thread.
  14. Firstly, thanks for viewing this thread, and for the kind words on the last update. It's a bit late, so can't write much since I'm nodding off. Just wanna post a three-page preview (out of 10) of one o' my emo-er SW comics...as for the rest, uh...wait for that button in my sig in July for answers! ^0^ Methinks I will change the title font on the first page...on second glance, it's more whimsical than angsty @_0 Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Enjoy! ^_^
  15. Thanks! Draken Fett: Thank you! But I have to apologize because I don't take requests. I could point you towards my Commissions page, but I can't even accept new ones now because I have several in queue at the moment. New pic! I used one of my comic page linearts for coloring practice. Need to improve on both the color usage and speed departments T_T
  16. What's the name of the song, Laozi? I haven't watched MTV in a gazillion years that I'm practically clueless about latest vids and stuff. Though I DO want to see Fatboy Slim's "The Joker" again (which I saw by accident while dining out). Best use of kittens and catnip EVER.
  17. Thanks for visiting! I definitely want to post more pics after my internship ends tomorrow YAYS! Exile/Malak thing: That was just a musing. Methinks that though Exile may not have any objections to being fancied, with the circumstances that follow The Mandy Wars, I feel that it just didn't (or couldn't) develop into anything more. I'd imagine she'd just go "Huh." if asked about it in K2 Well, Ted Bundy didn't look like a serial killer type due to his good looks, but he was one. And some people would think that pudgy people can't be great military leaders, but Winston Churchill was one. And Pikachu...who knew the cutey widdle thing could induce epileptic seizures in young kiddies?! (ok, so this last point's irrelevant haha). My point is that if we're going to judge a person's capability from his/her appearance alone...well, that's stereotyping in itself no? And really, drawing an Exile who scowls emo angst 24/7 is no fun for me as a fan artist who just enjoys drawing fictional characters in various situations and possibilities Anyways, new pic plug. Just Bao-Dur and Nihilus left before clean-ups and coloring. Atton's left arm is bugging me though...makes that part a bit busy, but taking it out would cancel the symmetry effect I was going for...
  18. Well...let's just say, starting July onwards, look for a suspicious-looking icon on Yours Truly's sig.
  19. Goodness, has it been a while or what? 3 more days of internship and I'll be back to freelancing. And almost daily postings TWT I can't wait... Anyway, you're here for the goods, not the random ramblings of a burned-out intern... ...So, I was in a KOTOR chatroom when I told my friends of this musing I had that perhaps Younger Malak fancied Younger Exile during the Mandalorian Wars. And perhaps when Younger Revan used Exile as her pawn to place the war in her favour causing the latter to eventually suffer and be exiled from the Jedi Order, Malak's anger against his 'Master' was further compounded until that fateful day when Bastila's Jedi Team boarded Revan's vessel. Here are some rough sketches I did with that idea in mind... Malak had just confessed his feelings here... Kinda sad to think how things turned out for them, no? Anyway, Just some musings. Exile/ Atton forever! *runs* And thanks for visiting this thread!
  20. Thanks, everyone Haven't had much time to draw because of my one-month internship, but I manage to sneak in a sketch or two in between work hours... A KOTOR 2 montage for...something. Atton's hand + blaster's givin' me trouble, so I'm concentrating on drawing out Mira for now...
  21. Exxy: Apparently sideburns add a touch of machoness to RPG heroes for some reason :D Saraya, Roger and Padmi: Well, relatively fast anyway....took me 15 mins to do the line art. I timed myself just now, and it took me approx. 1 hour to do the colored version below: Also, finally started on my Younger Atris/Exile comic. 1st page!
  22. Not the violence and gore Roger would have hoped with these two... But a mushy-romantic-poo art instead featuring a lovey-dovey Latino Heat Male Exile and Handmaiden. Was done verryyy quick since I have to go out in a min. Will probably polish it later tonight, and who knows, might even color it :D Laters all!
  23. If you must know, it's the Latino Heat Male Exile (Hispanic guy with the mullet) XD That's an idea! To hell with canon-dom, it's fanart XD I'll see what I can do...
  24. Thanks for the kind words! Nartwak: No kidding yo! It took me years before I finally realize that ordinary stationery can produce neat effects. So I'm now in the camp which believes that you bloody well don't need to buy the 'right pens' or the 'right paper' to produce ggood comics/art etc. etc. Saraya: Ooh, I hope I didn't get you in trouble during class! @_@ Arkendale: If you keep going at it with conviction, you'll definitely be better than me WAAAAAAAY earlier before you reach my age (I cry for my lost youth) Exxy: Sexy stick figures? XD XD TetsuJedi: Glad to be of service lol Roger: Only when I'm on a roll, sir. Right now, the reality of work is descending With Handmaiden/Exile, I have this idea of parodying the cheesy-like hell line of Anakin to Padme on Naboo (the 'I don't like sand, so rough, blah blah' line). I don't think I'll be able to do it in time for the Challenge, but maybe another time just kicks.
