Star Wars is AWESOME 2:Lumiria by CaptainUnobservant Star Wars is AWESOME 2:Lumiria by CaptainUnobservant
This is the second piece in my "Star Wars is AWESOME!" series, which was actually inadvertently created after a request from my fellow :iconlegionink: admin :iconforestmoon: during ICON... It started out being a simple request to draw a female Jedi with long hair and twin lightsabers... So I drew the according request, but it was incredibly bland and generic, so instead, I planned out and illustrated this monster in all of two hours (inks included), but only what you see in the foreground...

You see, for the first time ever, I actually WANTED to draw a background, which I plotted and illustrated on a whole separate page with the intent of layering the whole image. I then moved the SBD closer to the character and altered its arm's position a little for increased dramatic effect.

The character became so much more than just some generic Jedi... I named her Lumiria after Forest Moon's RPG character on Legion Ink's story thread and made her look Elfish in appearance, pointy ears and pale skin included!

As a point of interest, Lumiria's hips were originally WAY too narrow, so I digitally edited them and made them wider (by at least 4mm!!!)...

I really love this piece! I hope you all do too!

I was at first gonna say something about the SBD being abnormally big but then I thought "that makes it intimidating... and its an original take." so as such, rather than moan about it I will say they need to hire you to draw the next SW comic xD

AWESOME! Hahahaha! Thank you! And I actually always loved the version from the Republic Commando game... Those things were massive and scary and a pain to kill!

Yes, so intimidating!
Meat bags detected!
I actually dislike how they appear in the clone wars 3D show, they just don't seem intimidating anymore. I used to think of the droids as killing machines, you get in their way, you'll die, like an army of fire ants; you might kill a few but a  one on one fight, you're gonna get over powered, especially when some have sword arms, a 340 pound bitch-slap, cortosis plating, twin gun arms and etc. But then TCW makes them like cheap malfunctioning toys that I don't think ANYONE would use to fight a full scale war with. They kind of became storm-troopers, expendable, they're gonna die, regardless. I just think it's a bit retarded to make intimidating enemies that can swarm you like wasps nothing more than robots that seem to miss every time they shoot. :/
