The curse [Tusserk]
I feel it necessary to provide a brief explanation of why I am requesting this in the first place, before I actually make the request. I would draw this myself, but I have a sort of a curse. Every time I draw a SW group, they disband. I wish I was joking, but it's happened more times than I can count. As soon as I finish a nice portrait of a group that I'm GM'ing, one or more players get busy, deployed, or worse, and we never have another session with those characters.
Given my unusual circumstances, I don't want this to happen with the group I'm running, but I feel they deserve to see something depicting their most recent achievement. This will be a group portrait, which I understand can be daunting, but let me give you a brief tour of their recent travails.
Our heroes have found themselves, most recently, fighting their way through the underground fortress of the mad scientist Darth Geist. What was once a subway system, under the once grand Cathar city of Mavrid, has been turned into a virtual swamp of sith alchemy and genetic engineering, overgrown with a tenacious mutated moss and burgeoning with blistered growths oozing with various fluids. They have pursued this particular Dark Lord here to disable a jamming array being used in the siege of the city, and to retrieve a Jedi holocron and destroy the Sith holocron being used to corrupt it.
Among the brave souls on this quest are:
Vashani, a white-furred male Cathar Jedi with one green and one yellow eye, wearing the customary brown Jedi robes and wielding a green-bladed lightsaber. He keeps finding himself in unfortunate situations like these.
'Doc'Trom, a quiet, ruddy Ithorian in a long white coat with mildly ornate gold trim, bearing a medical kit on his chest, and a heavy blaster in a holster. He has the dubious honor of carrying the suitcase-sized improvised 'football' that will be used to disable the jamming array.
Nex'ala Ishar, a female Chiss, pretty much a Chiss version of Aeryn Sun, wearing a flat black flack jacket over the customary black tank top and black cargo pants. She carries a heavily modified sniper rifle that 'some guy totally gave' her.
Kaiya, a young, hot-headed mechanic and Force Adept, donning a pale blue poopy suit with a heavy blaster pistol which you have a sneaking suspicion was in her hand from birth. She has ivory skin, deep brown eyes, and auburn hair cut to just below her ears.
Vit, a short, Paul Bunyan-esque commando with a tan jumpsuit and helmet, and a heavy blaster rifle. This is his first assignment away from home. You can tell.
I'd like to see someone tackle this, maybe churn out a nice snapshot of them trudging through one of the poorly-lit corridors, besmirched with various and unspecified fluids. I'd like to see poor Doc Trom carrying the 'football'. I've envisioned it looking something like a shallow metallic cylinder with a rounded top and handles on the sides, cluttered with wires and displays, obviously cobbled together in a hurry.
Again, I would do this myself, but I fear the curse too much.
Thanks for reading! :D
