I was kinda sad when I heard the news about the clone wars series.. I still cant believe that its gonna end that way...

Especially with that season finale and all the unfinished business that happent on this season gives me a filling of emptiness as a viewer... :(

Also the fact that the new series that announced is on a different ''star wars'' timezone makes me wonder if we gonna see some of the clone wars characters again.....?

Anyway all that gave me the idea to make some tribute art for this series....

and this time you can choose between two characters...

For those who use the force... I present Ashoka Tano

and for those who have embrace the dark side... ventress

both are two of my favorite characters from the series hope they will inspire u to make some great stuff!!!

*if u choose ventress u can draw her as sith lord or as bounty hunter... u decide

*sorry for my english

(deadline: lets say 8th of june )

Just so I understand as this would be my first entry into these. We just draw one or the other in whatever way we like, yes?

@bumpyboo: Should we do the same one to compare how we each interpret them?

@v_scarlotte_rose:

Oooh we should that would be really cool :D Great idea! Any preference? :)

@bumpyboo: I was planning on going with Ventress.

@v_scarlotte_rose:

Ventress it is! :) God knows what this is gonna turn out like but still...it will be fun to try :)

@bumpyboo: Worth a go. I'll maybe have to look up more information on her to decide what pose to go with, as I'd never heard of either of these characters before this thread.

Hehe, me neither, I had to check out their character galleries to see a little more of them :) My Star Wars knowledge beyond the original trilogy is a little lacking XD

@bumpyboo: I'm much the same, though I can't say I'm hugely knowledgeable about any of it. Not like those people who can name all the characters that were just there in one scene or whatever.

100% yes... you can even design a new outfit...

as an older guy I have to say that its not a trilogy but there are six movies out there... the first 3 (episode 4,5 and 6) came out at the 80s and imo they were much better than the new trilogy...

Anyway if u have time check the ''clone wars the movie'' its the best way to get infos about the characters background... have fun :)

@plut0n: I think Boo meant trilogy like most people split the saga into 'Original Trilogy' and 'Prequel Trilogy'. That's how I think of them at anyway.

oh ok thats cool...

Sorry for the misunderstanding...

u know I become a lil sensitive about the star wars because Im a great fun and specialy for the old trilogy since its part of my childhood...

@plut0n:

Hehe, my fault entirely, I should have been more clear. I guess what I meant is because I am not overly fond of the newer Star Wars storylines and characters, I do not know them as well as I do the likes of Han, Chewie, etc. There is just no comparison for me at all :) (I am a little older too ;D)

Well it has been two years or so since I picked up a pencil and drew something so here it is and trust me the scan does not do the work justice.

I am still thinking in painting her with watercolor but as of now...she is as good as I want her to be.

Really like this type of work...where the character is very pensive whether to continue or not.

Crazy cool people. I love the drawings! It's nice to see that George Lucas continues to have a pulse on the culture. Being a comic book creator myself; I hope to do the same thing. checkout my work at www.shakwinn.wordpress.com.

Hey I m back... work keeps me away from vine but I found some free time...

@BumpyBoo feels good to know that Im not the older guy here maybe we should start an ''introduse your self'' post here on artist showdown...

@artiom1q2w This is the way I imagine Ashuka too... since she left the jedi order she would look more like a lone wolf...

@Blankspot 2 years???!!! great pencils she looks realy cool...

@KEROGA Both characters in one pic.... nice!!!

@IcePrince_X nice one reminds me japanese paintings... If u think that by adding watercolors there is a posibility to ruin ur drawing then do the old trick.... make a photocopy

@shakwinn wait.... what?

I've just been quite busy with other things lately and I've not had a lot of time to get art done. I have lots of requests to get through too. Hopefully I'll be bale to get some stuff done tomorrow/tonight. :)

Are you still doing this?

If you want to self-promote, create your own thread. Try to keep posts on the contest threads relevant to the contests themselves, particularly if you're posting artwork someone might possibly construe as an entry.

@Pluton... that is actually my concept...something serene as a japanese art work but with a twist of a dark theme.

@BumpyBoo...kawaii!

This is just gorgeous! O_O I love everything about it -- great job in capturing the effects of the wind on her, plus you have a very distinctive art style.

Beautiful, your ability to do highlights and lowlights are amazing -- I can see the sheen in her eyes as well. The overall attention to her facial features is stunning, let alone the framing. Wow.

@keroga said:

You should feel great about this -- how can you not? I like how you choose to place both characters in positions of actions, and the facial expressions are awesome!

You have definitely managed to get across that sense of introspection here -- it's almost as if the breeze causing her gown to billow out it gently urging her forward. Love the background of the tree and falling blossoms and the detail of her outfit is amazing. So very well done.

@bumpyboo said:

I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!!!! HOORAY, B! This is your first submission into a contest (that I am aware of) and this is why I love this forum so much! I feel like flinging chocolates at you -- and decadent fudge brownies, lol.

And I adore this -- this is very much your style -- you kept true to it and gave her the BumpyBoo treatment. Perfect choice of character too considering how great you are with sharp contrasting in designs --- I want those shoes/boots.

*again, so happy you participated --waves BB flags - *

Now I am just waiting for @v_scarlotte_rose to add her creation. :)

Plus others -- I love these kind of contests where artists get to put their own spin on known characters.

(I apologize for the huge post -- I wanted to put all the submissions together for my own selfish reasons. :P)

Well, I wanted to get to color, but I got held up by other things. Still was real fun as I finished The Clone Wars recently and Ahsoka is awesome :)
