I think you made an error with the code or something cause all I see is the red X of DOOM.

Are you sure? did you refresh your page? did you check the URL yourself?

HAHAHA!

Awesome animation, he looked alive there.

Beautiful dog Daenna, what breed is he? Or is he a mix? He's a good mix if he is one.

It's a Japanese Akita, people often ask me if he's a mix thinking he's a lab or golden retriever mixed with a husky or malamute.... But no, he's a pure breed akita ;D These dogs are headstrong, stubborn, fierce and prone to fighting with other dogs. They also love children, cuddling and "bear-hugging".

Wow, great work you have there. Whenever I read Republic Commando, your drawings of Bardan are what I mentally pictured. Seriously, great stuff.

I hope it's Trooper-centric. Regardless of who's killing who.

Doesn't TFN have fanart galleries too? You could try there if they do. And I'm sure they do, I just don't think I've been there.

They do, but every time I try to browse the art there's an error in the code and the pages don't show. Then there's the Jedi Council forum and I'd have to literally resurrect a semblance of social life there... honestly I can't fit that in my time frame now that I'm back here.

+ I'm starting new website with Mando related stuff and working on doing something more out of it. Eventually I'd want to have an artwork/fan fiction archive with stuff from Boba Fett to Clones and also original characters around the Mandalorian thing.

Edit: here's what I'm currently working on, slapping some colors there but I quite like the black and white ink...

It's all done with a Wacom pen tablet, sketched and "inked" in Photoshop. The result is just like using traditional tools, just goes much faster and it's always clean.

These are two sisters from Republic Commando: Burdens a story by a mando nut friend of mine.

Thanks everyone. I want to submit some of these to SW fan art galleries but I honestly don't know where to start. BFFC.com is more about the Fetts, isn't it?

Then I'd have to feed him half and drag him around on daily walks!

Nope, he's actually pretty big for a chihuahua.

I watch this series for the fights and the colorful settings, they keep my attention. But were it dubbed in Russian or Vietnamese I would actually enjoy it more.

Agree with Lord Revan there, the way the clones are portrayed, completely regardless of all the work K. Traviss has done over the past 4 years, makes me all kinds of pissed. Once again on-screen Star Wars takes a step away from the EU.

However, I think Ahsoka is cute. You do not see teenage characters in the Star Wars (and rightfully so, Anakin in AOTC was about enough of whining), but a female, alien, and smart one is a concept I have to support, as a fan artist and writer. I hate her ambiguous relationship with Anakin though. In fact everything revolving around Anakin in this series is unbearable.

Sorry... my spelling in the AM is not what I would say the best..... I didnt have coffee....

Oh don't worry I wasn't correcting your spelling - I just type in italic all the words in mando'a, out of habit.

The proper name for that cake is Uj'alayi tongue

Aside from the events towards the end, I thought it was kinda boring...

***SPOILERS***

Etain's death was so dumb. I wanted to see her die... but to go defending (without a frakking weapon!) some RANDOM clone she doesn't even know was just lame. I thought Etain was smarter than that... I mean, who would really do something so rash mere minutes away from escaping?

I DID want her to die... but I was hoping Niner or someone else would obey Order 66 and kill her on the spot, and Darman would have to choose between his brothers and Etain. THAT would have been epic. Talk about the ultmiate star crossed lovers! I just wish it had been more dramatic. It was so brief and random in my opinion.

Indeed. I felt cheated that things went down the way they did because I was hoping for some real questioning to happen around obedience and loyalty. One thing's for sure though; Etain certainly acted loyal until the very end. The poor di'kut didn't have it coming, she ran right into it.

***SPOILERS OFF***

Wasn't it for the Bardan-focalized chapters I'd say this wasn't my favorite book of the series. Triple Zero and True Colors share the top shelf for my personal tastes.

Guys, between the end of last year and last month I had some kind of "inspiration burst" that made me draw sooo much stuff, as if I was on liquid Schwarz the whole time!

So this is a bulk update, to show (off) the cool Mandalorian-related art I made! There's a lot of Bardan Jusik, so bear with me tongue

The last one is a commission for a devArt buddy and I'm currently working up a list of other Mandalorian characters people have requested, but I'm slooow.

And while passing time (aka. procrastinating) I figured I'd pop by in the old bobafett club and see how you're all doing.

OHHH I like your "Another Mandalorian" drawing--gotta get that lady a name wink (if it doesn't take away from the mystery, anyway) That's very nice, and of course I love seeing Bardan pictures!  You do such awesome work big_smile

Thanks FF79! I don't have names for my characters before I draw them. Writing is a huge pain for me so I just bother with drawing ;D

I totally forgot to post this one:

Hey there everyone!

I know it's been ages since I last updated with anything but I got busy with stuff and kind of forgot about this place sad Inspiration has been rare lately but for all of you who aren't on deviantArt.com you probably haven't seen these.

At the moment I'm reading Order 66 by Karen Traviss, and of course watching the Clone Wars series. They make me want to draw more Star Wars so you can expect more to come soon! big_smile

Really cool! That "mummy" kind of character is scary... and he has this ethereal thing going on, too. The contrasted shading works well on  him!

I'm curious about the other two: love the expression on the man's face... do you have a story about him? And that is one badass alien, I wouldn't want to stand near that mouth big_smile

Here's a Mando'a Language Dictionary I've been working on. The first part, mostely complete, is the alphabet and grammar. The second part is the dictionary, not even close to being finished.

What do you think?

The link for it is

Nice, well written and simple guide. Thanks.

Only major problem with it: you wrote the mando'a words and phrases in the mandalorian font! You should add the  pronunciation underneath so that we can actually read all that without the mando font transcription. If any of us will want to write in mando (fanfics, forums...) we'll be using english fonts, not mandalorian fonts.

Remember mando'a is a spoken language and spelling may changes from a person to another, and that'd be OK as long as the pronunciation is right.
