This is the second piece in my "Star Wars is AWESOME!" series, which was actually inadvertently created after a request from my fellow
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!
