Personal Request for a Wookiee pirate/mercenary from sloop.
He has a cybernetic face-piece, built something like a breath mask, to make up for losing most of his jaw and part of his left cheek to Trandoshan slavers when he was much younger. He is well past middle age, for a Wookiee, and though somewhat on the lanky side he makes up for his lack of bulk by being both dexterous and cunning. He has charcoal coloured fur that is beginning to have traces of grey in it now, due to his age.
That's the cut-down version, anyway. I can always load up the full description, if anyone wants - it's quite interesting!
Since I haven't drawn a Wookiee before I thought I would start with a regular sketch and go from there. I'm pretty pleased with it, actually. On with the request, then!
Okay, here's what I've got so far for the Kallakazza image. I might have another go at a sketch, or I might see what colour gets us - I'll load again when I've got something new, anyway.
Ooooh, very nice. Looks graphic novel quality to me, he really looks like a character...If that makes sense...
I love the first sketch, and I'm going to put in a request that you finish it up, and put him in color, and put him up on the site :) ... second sketch looks really cool too.
Thanks guys! I think I might finish off the first one, too, when I'm done with the request. Cheers, Xan!
Graphic novel quality?! Thanks d, that's sweet of you!
Anyway, here's the next sketch - I think I like it a bit more, except the gun. I'm not great at hardware, generally, but I think the first one was better. Still, overall the second picture seems a bit more the right age and disposition. Thoughts?
I think the last sketch does look more 'middle aged, for a Wookiee'. :> He's more grizzled and looks more rugged.
That's right, I've still been fanatically following your art, I've just been quiet. :>
The 3 pic's wookiee looks best, but I like the second picture's face mask better. The gun does need some work, but the character is looking really stellar.
That is some great looking Wookiee you have there. I agree with Eclipse that #3 does look the best, but if you went with a straight Wookiee pic the #1 would be excellent to do.
Cheers, guys. I agree with you about the face mask, Eclipse, though I don't know why. I think the simplicity of the first was just better and it looked like it was properly part of his face. Problem is, I can probably draw a new gun in that angle and substitute it into the third picture, but the face mask will have to stay. Hopefully it will improve with colour.
Hey Fragwulf - good to hear from you again!
New sketch up. I like the gun best in this one, and the face mask isn't too bad. I'm still trying to decide if I like the face of the second-to-last sketch better, though. Something in the eyes that is missing in the last one.
Okay, so I couldn't decide. I've done a little playing on photoshop and come up with a meld of the last two. I don't know if it works, but let me know what you think, k?
Excellent work Mercy! I'm really liking the last one that you've put up
Cool, glad you like. I'll get a colour version up when it's a little further along, k?
Sounds like a plan ;)
They're looking really awesome Mercy!
Colour version up.
The colored version is AWESOME! That is one mean looking Wookiee.
Thanks man! I'm quite pleased with him.
Mery it looks great!! Just like how Sloop described to us in the game! :)
Amazing job, I love it! It's just how I pictured him! Thanks :)
Fumky! I'll post it to gallery, then. I'm so glad you like it!
LOVE the last colored wookiee pic... absolutely Spetacular in every way.. he really comes to life..... Wonderful work Mercy.
The Wookiee colored pic is Absolutely Awesome. The Wookiee is better than a lot of the pictures on some of the offical sites. Keep up the good work.
Thanks guys! I'll post it to gallery, if you like.
