You need to pick up a copy of "Triple Zero" by Karen Traviss

Deanna, love the mando strike team.
I have a background story for the fan comic that could include your mando girl since there's at least three other female mandos in it.  Tell me what you think.

That sounds interesting! ...but making female characters just for the sake of showing them wouldn't be very cool. I'm no feminist or anything (although I do tend to strongly take a stand when there is unfairness) but to see them just hanging around to make the male hero seem charismatic, that's not cool... When I made that portrait of the Mando girl I was imagining a woman thinking about her heritage, right after a battle, and how she got her armor from her father/adopter. When the adrenaline wears down you kinda feel lost, so she stares at the T-shaped visor and reminds herself of what she's fighting for.....

Anyway, I'm curious to see how your fan comic turns out, can't wait! smile

Oh no, it's not like that at all.  If anything the female mandos are main characters and have their own stories. The fan comic is actually a collection of short stories showcasing each of the mandos.

Wait, Triple Zero and Hard Contact are about Mandalorians?

That was my thought. As far as I knew Triple Zero's about Clones, so the picture couldn't be from the book. But then I never read Triple Zero.

Well, TZ is about clones... But it also features one POV character who is Mandalorian, Kal Skirata. Also, most of the clones in the book ARE Manadalorian. TZ is chock full of Mand'oa (language of the Mandalorians). TZ is an awesome book, and I'd recommend reading it!! smile smile


Oh, and Daenna, I LOVE YOUR DRAWINGS!!!!! If only I could draw like that.... *sigh*

Yeah, I wish I could call him Kal'buir too tongue And personally I thought Wallon Vau was really cool in his own way. So that drawing I did could be of Skirata and Vau, together on a hunt.... heheh


TZ definitly inspired me into making Mando art, because it brings the Mandalorian culture to life....

Re: Mando & Trooper fan art

Wait... so TZ, set in Clone Wars time, with Clonetroopers who are soldiers of the Republic... the Clonetroopers somehow for some reason call themselves Mandalorians even though they probably don't even know what one is? Shouldn't they be fighting wars for the Republic instead of running around saying they're Mandalorians anyway? And somehow they know a language they never learned to speak? *confused, not sarcastic or however I sounded*

Haha... Maybe we should talk about this in the TZ special thread (http://bobafett.com/boards/viewtopic.php?id=180). It might seem confusing from what people say about the novel, but you should reeeally check out the Republic Commando novels by Karen Traviss, first one being Hard Contact, which is required to read before you get Triple Zero.

OR you can check out the guide to the GAR in the Insider magazine and I don't remember which issue it's in.

By the way, this may not be Mando or Trooper-related but I just finished a landscape of Coruscant.... Thought I'd share smile

the commando's where trained by former mandalorians, who taught them about their heritage, past and language.

In the real world tho, this was just to give the clones more of a background

Re: Mando & Trooper fan art

Oh, thanks, both of you. smile The only clonish books I've read are the Medstars and Shatterpoint, so I'm a bit clueless about them, sorry.

And I like the new pic! It's a good example of the layers of Coruscant.

Me too! It took me about four days to read both of them. (and that's really good for me, most books take me at least two weeks or so cause I'm lazy, lol)

Re: Mando & Trooper fan art

Su'cuy Daenna!

   I was cruising my favorate Mando spots on the web and I decided to see some fan art. I hit this page and am checking out your stuff, which is awesome if I may say so, and what do I see. A couple of Mando'ade about to make some poor soul's day take a turn for the worse with a verp sniper rifle ala Walon Vau in Triple Zero.  I was like no way thats awesome, maily because I designed the verp with Karen Traviss and am the guy who made her the life sized model. I recognized it right away and it was awesome to see it in your illustration. Thank you for making my day burc'ya!
