Knight and Mount
Exilius Nyx Antillus, Selonian Knight, atop her trusty Fenwolf mount.
I actually have no idea whether a fenwolf is meant to look anything like this, I mean this is pretty much just a giant wolf with a bit of extra floof, haha. But, well, I had no real desire to go crazy with creature conceptualising because there's such a dearth of canine-looking beasties in the Star Wars universe, and, and... I like wolves.
HAHA!!! That.Is. Awesome! <3 And Star Wars has normal RL creatures like Wolves and Cats so I think it fits nicely! (I like Wolves To :-p And foxes...I love Foxes...I need to get a picture of my Imp with a fox....hmmmm)
OH MY GOD. My jaw just went slack. I... I feel like I need to leave other art pieces at the feet of this art piece to appease it... I'm not sure I've ever seen anything of this caliber on this site before (no offense to everyone else. It's just actually that good.)
I almost can't believe. This is phenomenal.
Words are lost to me as I look at this picture. It is just "AWESOME".

This looks great!!
I love the light effect and the attitude of Exilius and the Fenwolf stopped in their tracks as if sensing something just off the trail!
Wow this is worth of featured art, the unique armour and lightsaber design is my favourite part

OMG! Tussy, you are AMAZING!!!
You know what this reminds me of? Sir Didymus and Ambrosius from the Labyrinth.
Girl - you are so talented...
OHMYGOD Mercy I never thought of Didymus and Ambrosius while working on this, but now I will NEVER NOT SEE IT! AHAHA. I love it!!
But thanks so much for all the comments, guys (Asok dude seriously don't make me blush like that again!)-- I put a LOT into this piece, and have to say I'm pretty proud of how it's turned out (never mind all the little niggles I keep seeing every time I look at it). Aenid, I am so glad you see what I was going for there, with the sudden shift in movement of the characters!
Putting it together was great fun; combining images of sled dogs with jousting knights, poring over a friend's photos from a trip to Africa for colour and lighting ideas, and of course the character concept itself built up between me and my GM-husband. :D
Haha right out of my mind mercy! This is so labyrinth! But aside from that it's freaking awesome. Kinda reminds me of a red wall cover too.
haha! I love Redwall :-p
Oh and Triss- you said one of my magic words up there earlier.
Fox??! :D :D
