Rebel Heavy Gunner [Stirzy]
I've long been a fan of this site, and it's great to see it back up! Especially when it's just in time for me to make a first request ... ;)
So, when creating RPG characters, I like to start with a quotation and a picture, and go from there. For my most recent SW character, though, I haven't been able to find a suitable picture, even including broader internet searches. So, maybe y'all can help.
Ariq "Ricky" Etison is a human male from the planet Agamar. Contrary to popular belief, not everyone from the farm planet is a backwater hick. However, some stereotypes have a small basis in truth, and that brings us to Ricky.
I haven't been able to settle in on his appearance much beyond gross physical details: 2.08m (6' 10" or so), built like a truck (and about as bright). I can't decide if he's blond, sandy-haired, or brunette, but he's got a broad, honest face and a ready smile. I see him maybe somewhere between the Mannings (Peyton or Eli) and Jake Busey (from Starship Troopers; http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000998/ ). In fact, the quotation that inspired the character comes from the (unfortunately, largely execrable) Starship Troopers movie:
Well, my family is all farmers. I hate farming.
Mobile Infantry's pure picnic by comparison.
So they grow 'em big and dumb on the farm
— Starship Troopers
The character is currently going through Rebel Infantry training, culture shock and all, where he's shown an affinity for the "big guns": mounted repeating blasters, grenade / missile launchers, blaster cannons, etc. Luckily, he's got the physique to handle them (so long as someone points him in the right direction)!
Showing him with gear is obviously not a requirement, unless the artist decides it works better.
In short, I'm looking for a genuine hayseed in the big city look, translated into Star Wars. I don't have any extremely specific guidelines for how he should look, so that should provide whoever decides to pick this up with a fair degree of latitude.
Anyone interested? :)
