Re: Mando & Trooper fan art

Thanks!  It is fun to do too!  I wanted to try the Imperial logo design, but after the mythosaur, the Imperial logo seemed it would be WAY more complicated--a lot more cuts too.  I might give it a try next year.

Re: Mando & Trooper fan art

My first Mandalorian-themed drawing... in fact, my first Star Wars drawing in a long time. A Theelin Mandalorian sniper, my roleplay persona (which is why she ended up looking like me hmm), and central character of my (currently embryotic) fanfic 'The Mouse That Went Bang'.

My latest Mando drawing smile Still working on it--like adding the scope to Boba's rifle, and details on his gauntlets.

Re: Mando & Trooper fan art

Thanks guys!
This is actually a picture I drew to go along with an online RPG I've been in for over a year now.  I'm planning to draw all or most of the characters involved.  This one is  Boba, and the female is Zen (my character) on Tatooine.  I have already lightened the lines to get ready for coloring.  Yeah, I know this is a bit old school--most are using programs like Photoshop to get some really great color/shading, and I 'd like to get that someday.  But for now, it's pencil, paper, and Prismacolor. smile

I take requests also, facing the artist's block right now... sad

Request eh? sweet well if youre interested and you seem  to be an awesome mando artist check out my story "The Beginning of The End story of the 101st MSB" in the creative section. Im desperate for action shots also maybe some ships and weapons for a cover. I would appreciate it!

Re: Mando & Trooper fan art

Tiba Mouse coloured. Her birth name was Diva Equiqua, which sounded like Tiba Eki'ika to her Mandalorian comrades. Eki'ika is like 'Little Eek' ('-ika' being a diminutive suffix a bit like '-chan' in Japanese), and mice make the same sound wherever you come from (except in Grand Fenwick, where they sometimes roar). Hence the mouse referance.

Now I've got Mandalorian armour down pat, I may have a go at Boba Fett. For some reason, I never want to draw my most favourite characters - I'm always certain that it'll come out pants.

Re: Mando & Trooper fan art

Great coloring!  I like the hues you chose for the outfit--they work nicely!  Is that by hand or did you use a comp program?  Interesting story behind her name too--I was wondering about that.

Re: Mando & Trooper fan art

She was drawn in pencil and ballpoint pen and coloured with a 50% opacity in Photoshop CS.

I think your art is very good as well. I've never been skilled at making anything look realistic.
If you're not fond of the 'solid colour' Photoshop look or want to keep your pencil/pen lines visible, try doing what I do. Make a layer and set it to 50% opacity and colour over. Personally, I don't use any shading of colour and just stick to pencil shading a drawing, but shading at 50% op might still work.

Re: Mando & Trooper fan art

Here's some coloring done---I'll have to remember to try what you suggested, Ciepher, when/if I do get Photoshop...

Re: Mando & Trooper fan art

Thank you--I'll be adding more color probably later today if I find a better pencil sharpener.  The one I have works, but is kinda cruddy.  I might just use my exacto knife like we did in classes.

Those look even better with color! smile Ironicly, the colors you used for Zen are the same for my character. Still, I like how it's painted on her armor. smile

Probably but i don't get Ciepher's quote about Boba Fett and pants under entry #311 the art on this page is really cool though

Re: Mando & Trooper fan art

The only way to get Paint Shop Pro free is either to pirate it or download the free trial. wink The trial lasts a month or so, and I don't recomend pirating. Regular price is 80 dollars I think? I know amazon.com has it. I'm not sure if the lesser versions are cheaper or not, I have version 9. So I'm not sure if, like, Version 3 or something might only be 20.

Re: Mando & Trooper fan art

I nicked mine, because my copy of Paint Shop Pro 7 had perished in a reboot, and I couldn't find the CD. Now I've found the CD, no more pirated software.
My advice would be to find a old copy of PSP 7 somewhere. It will probably be very cheap now, and can produce art that's just as good as what you can do with the new art software.

'Pants' in English either means underwear or something that's a bit crap. You can say: "My pants are pants." So if my art comes out pants, it means I didn't draw very well.
