***FULL VIEW*** its better.

The pains I went through to get the mixed media to cooperate with me this time were extreme, so please take the time to appreciate my masterful recovery of this as it is. I almost had to submit just the hand colored version, but I salvaged it, and am pretty satisfied. I used some major reference on the pose, but other than that its all mine. The costume is constituted of some older sketches I'd done, and is mixed with the typical wierd Star Warsy dress style mixed with Old School jedi ie. the flap in front of the pants, and the cloak (which I'm uber pleased with). In fact I'm super pleased with the whole thing...I think it may be my new masterpiece. lol
I put this in anime rather than fan art for the simple reason that the actual character is mine. For the lightsabers, I used my photshop low level mastery on because I couldn't get the glow the way I wanted, so I took actual lightsaber footage, and grafted it in. I always thought it would be cool if a jedi carried two sabers, so that's why there are more than one.
So anyway. Here's to Episode Three, and star wars in general. My first love. Really. Star Wars is what got me interested in Sci-Fi, and without it, I prolly wouldn't have ever had the means by which to begin writing my book. George Lucas. I owe you man. May the Force be with you. (ha, always wanted a good reason to say that.)
