Messing around with scenery type stuffs. I had a lot of fun on this one, but drawing a waterfall with a mechanical pencil is terrible! Well hey, that's what I use and this was about me exploring new ideas with my weapon of choice! So I only have my self to look at if I thought it was difficult :) I think I'm gonna try falling water again though. I like how it took me out of my safety zone!

When Kellz and I were discussing the challenge this time around we were on the phone (normally that convo takes place over e mail) and when I mentioned we should draw Bith she misheard me and thought I said "Sith" and was all "uhh... ok..." ahaha I thought it was a little strange that she was so hesitant about such a simple one but when I realised what she heard... yeah. I understood. Since there's no real definitive (canonical) documentation of what they look like yet it wouldn't be the kinda thing I would field.
So here we are. I had drawn a Bith Jedi a while back but in a more manga style and I recalled how tricky it was implying that it was a female so I had to go back and reference that illustration to try and recall what I did. I think it kinda works (about as well as I can hope for anyway haha)For the robes I went in the direction of Luminara Unduli & Shaak Ti from Episode II because I really liked the slightly unconventional look they carried, and how it almost felt as if the design carried some hint of their culture especially in the embossed leather panels in the front of their robes. The pleated under robe was inspired by Darth Maul's and the lightsaber (what there is of it) was loosely inspired by Luke's second saber.

Ohh looks like Kellz is on a Pathfinder kick and wants to do Half Orcs. Nice choice! and yet again something I wouldn't have chosen to draw of my own accord I think. So not wanting to be conformist, I think what I have here is a Gentleman Scholar Half Orc. Or something like that... I had fun on this one
