Topic: picture requests?

So i am officially bored with this internet thing and want to get back to drawing [samples in my old post called 'some new drawings']

anyone have any ideas or requests?

i have a few ideas but those are long term projects, and therefore "surprises" >=)

Re: picture requests?

Would you do a custom Mando? That'd be pretty tough, though. (By that I mean, if you don't have the time, not the skill).

*grins*  custom mandos are fun to draw...

I wish you luck on you request list Cera...I gave up doing those a while ago due to people being ungrateful, picky, self centered jerks (no I am not talking about anyone on this forum).  I hope you get people who are better than the ones that I did....

Re: picture requests?

Cool. Umm, I'll just throw out a general description of armor and colors, and give you several suggestions for weapons, etc. If you want more specifics, just let me know. 

armor: Black beskar’gam, gold highlights around the T-slit visor.  Gauntlet vibroblade in both gauntlets. Highlights on the helmet mean like the blue on Jango's or reddish color on Boba's.

Weapons: Black-handled beskad, with gold tracings. Modified Verpine shatter gun,  Blastech Rifle, handguns, knives, etc.


Suggestions. I have no idea what a beskad looks like, nor a Verp. You could try them, but it would probably be tough. Maybe a blaster held low, and a gauntlet blade, or just a rifle. Whatever works.

If you want more, or if I wasn't clear on something, let me know. Thanks for doing this!

Re: picture requests?

I have a request for whatever you have the time

I found a pic on the net like this, but I failed to save the link and can't find it anymore, so if you could make something like it I'd REALLY appreciate it.

I'd like the Original style skull:

http://www.freewebs.com/killer-ewok/manda%20skull.jpg

done up to look like a REAL skull, in a similar fashion as you see Native American work for buffalo skulls and other works.  With a white, bone look to the skull, realistic cracks *including a reworking of the standark crack on top of the skull to make it more realistic*, realistic looking ridges connecting the tusks to the skull, eye sockets shadded out, and more realistic blood from the jaws.

If I'm being too nit-picky, if this isn't your line, or you don't want to copy the existing work out there that I described, I appologize and understand.  But if you're up for it, I'd love to see your version

Thanks,

---RD

That's hilarious. My main Mando character has those colors, and I like the idea of justice (black) being first, and vengeance (gold) being secondary, but still there. Those are pretty awesome team colors.

Bes'kad is awesome. If you can find a good description, that would be sick. Either one handed with a vibro-blade coming from the other gauntlet, or two handed. Looking forward to it.

Re: picture requests?

Thanks, somebody had the idea before I did, so not taking credit for it; but it is pure awesome and a brilliant concept.  I KNOW I saw one before, and it kills me that I can't find it anymore...I'm thinking it got removed or something. 

If anybody wants to try it, I'd love to have a copy   big_smile

P.S.

Here's something I reworked in paint:

http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg173/Ralin_Drakus/scan0005.jpg

The skull and tusks are way off, and it's a tiny pic.  But if anybody wants to add the blood red to the tips of the tusks and the blood from the jaws with the red eye, that would be Great.  The eye and blood on the more realistic skull is my concept for both a Clan symbol and for a tattoo, that's why I'm so anxious to find that original pic or see if anybody is willing to try to make one.

So again, with or without the blood and/or eye, I'd LOVE to have that realistic skull, so anybody interested please go for it  smile

Thanks again,

---RD

Re: picture requests?

Well it sounds like an interesting enough idea that I might give a shot at it too.

Well, its what the colors mean for Mandalorians. I liked the combo.

Nice idea, RD. I'd like to see how that turns out.

Re: picture requests?

FINALLY, I found the pic I was talking about having seen on the net:

http://www.mand-alore.com/bigimage4.jpg

It's actually not as good as I rememberd, but it's a very neat idea, and not bad work in the least, just not quite in the style I was looking for.  I've never visualized the two outer objects that desend from the skull as being horns, but I always thought all four were blood trailing down from the skull.

So I'm still very interested if anybody wants to try to create my request that I posted above.  This is just a reference as to what I was talking about before.  I'm giving a shot at drawing the skull myself in fact, and will post if anything worthwhile comes of it

Re: picture requests?

they look more like teeth, ner vod

awesome job with the idea Cerastes. As a fellow artist Im always on the lookout for what other SW fans are doing.

Keep it up.

What look more like teeth/which pic?  You talking about the lines that run under the skull's jaws?  And do you mean from the original undefined Boba skull or one of the images I posted?

Either way, it's all up for interpretation; I always thought it was blood.  I'm 96.2% done with my version, and will take pics when I can. 

Will post them here if as well as on my own thread if you don't mind Cerastes
