New request from LC:
I have evolved the idea I had surrounding Nath's character and his background as an emerging Jedi. The trinket that is hanging on his sash is from a female Mandalorian that has given him some trouble in the past and it was something she left with him. It is like a Batman/Catwoman relationship. She is a bounty hunter/mercenary/assassin as needed and this clashes with the higher morals that Jedi and Nath have but there is a spark between the two. They can never be together but that doesn't mean that don't have their clandestine meetings from time to time.
Here is what I have so far:
Ka’rta (Heart) Ramos
Height: 1.81 m
Weight: 65 kg
Hair: Brown (shoulder length)
Skin: Olive tone
Build: Lean and well muscled
Armor: Red with blue pen striping / Maroon with Gold trim.
Bust size: B cup
Decided her head was disproportionately big, so I've resized by about 5%
She's almost 6ft 1 in tall...dang tall drink of water....kinda interesting
It is looking great so far. I'll pm more information as it comes to me. I like the idea of the character, she is compatible with Nath but they are Yin/Yang to each other.
Great!! Let me know if anything needs changing, k?
'Tall drink of water' -- hahahaa, Casca! I have never heard that phrase outside of The Shawshank Redemption, me and Klopan have ALWAYS wondered if anyone actually ever uses it!! You've inadvertently made my day, haha.
Dangerous girlfriend for a young Jedi in training to be associating with!! But of course, that always makes for some deliciously interesting storylines...
Great sketch! I think it's her line of sight that makes this particularly interesting... so very casually threatening! She exudes self confidence.
Thanks Tussy! I wanted to try and get her looking sweet - but also dangerous. I'm quite pleased with the result!
Okay, here's the base colours. Let me know what you think.
I'm seeing a bit of a MacDalorian vibe here - but maybe it's just me...
'Tall drink of water' view the new princess movie :-p Tangled
It is looking outstanding so far. Just need to find a space on waist belt to add the charm that she later gives Nath after their first meeting. Also the Mandalorian symbol on her helment and a tattoo around her left eyes. They look like sparkles. Still working on the story for her but my sinus's are giving me a bit of a headache. Maybe a little more armor (the knees and belly). Otherwise, it is exellent.
I can do the Mando symbol, tattoo & crystal charm. Will see what I can do about adding more armor, but may be out of luck there...
Hope the sinuses clear up dude, a nice steam-bath with eucalyptus or menthol might help!
Hey Mercy, Check the armor on the knees and belly and just place them on the ground around her feet. That would work better then trying to place them on her body. She can be in the midst of getting armored up and thinking up the future job that will bring her into contact with Nath Tarncrest.
Heh! Sounds like a good compromise!
Will see what I can do.
BTW - has anyone outside of NZ heard about the new Chch Earthquake??
I tell ya what, the Antipodes have had it bad over the last 6 months or so...
Okay, here's an update:
* mando symbol on the helmet
* crystal from her belt
* tattoo - stars, is this what you were looking for?
I've also shrunk her head again - it occurred to me that she might not have got it in the helmet otherwise...
Will update again soon!
Mercy, I just heard about it!! That is absolutely insane... SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE, PLEASE STOP NOW!! I can't remember if you've ever told me where you're at, but are you anywhere near Christchurch??? Anyone you know out there? The fact that you're still online and updating is reassuring of course. <3 A lot of us over this way are keeping NZ in our thoughts at the moment. I can't even imagine that happening to such a gorgeous city. And so many people....!!
Hey Tussy - you're so sweet girl!!
I'm in Welly, so we're all good. We felt the shock from here, though!
The news reports are just devastating. Last I heard they were reporting at least 65 dead and so many more injured. The central city has been devastated. They've had about 4000 after-shocks since the big one in September and it's probably weakened the buildings so that when this new one struck, on a new fault - well you can imagine the carnage.
I don't know anyone in Christchurch, but I know plenty of people with family down there, my heart goes out to them all.
Big hugs to everyone! And yeah, we're done with this natural disaster stuff now, thank you!!!
That looks so cool. It is excellent Mercy. Thanks for all the great work. I heard about the earthquakes but the one I saw on the news was centered on the tip of the north island. I figured that since you live on the southern tip of the north island that you got rocked a little but nothing major. I can see you and C barely waking up and saying: "Oh, another quake, Im going back to sleep". lol.
I decided that the charm on Ka'rta's belt is left over from her childhood. The only thing she had left of them before being adopted by her Mandalorian father.
*Update* I just saw on FOX News about the quake in NZ. They said so far that 70 ppl are dead and the damage is pretty bad. Praying for you all.
Ive not had a chance to read about it, but I have heard! Very scary. I am so glad you are ok!
Thanks for the kind words guys!
Yeah, definitely in Chch again - so weird how information changes sometimes... Makes me wonder how much of the news we get is out!
Just a quick one for now - it's 5:15 and we're both going in early (public sector jobs, grr.)
Had a quick play, and have managed to get in back, belly and knee armour!
4,000 after shocks? Holy crap, I can't even imagine dealing with that. I just found out about the quake earlier today, but I didn't know there was one in September, too. I'm glad to know you and your family are safe, Mercy, but I feel for those living in the area; I just hope the toll doesn't rise any further and the people are able to recover soon.
Links removed because the spam filter apparently doesn't like me, but I shall have vengeance. And maybe beer. Beer and vengeance.
Yeah, it all looks pretty brutal down there...
We're all hoping the death toll won't rise, but there are reports that it will. It's just devastating.
That is just so cool! I can't say thank you enough.
I saw a picture of a building that had been strengthened against earthquakes back in 2009 and now it is a pile of rubble. Still praying for the Kiwi's and y'all be be careful.
Thanks man - yeah, it's a bit worrying when our earthquake proofed buildings are as trashed as the old church that was there for a hundred years!!
Makes you wonder why we bother.
Anyway - I'm glad the armor has worked!! Rather pleased I got it on too!
Just notice a section of the helment and pin strip on her leg does not match the rest of the gold color. Thought I would mention it.
I asked Triss to help me with the story so once I get it done then we'll deliver it to you to add to the picture.
Hey man - yeah, cause the pin strip on the jumpsuit is separate from the armor I thought it would be nice to have it in a different shade of yellow. If you don't like (or think it should be a more markedly different shade/colour) let me know cause I can change no problems!
Oh, no problem. I just thought you might have missed it. I didn't think that it was intentional. Keep up the great work. You and C stay safe.
Sweet as! Will do...
I think this one's done...
Decided her right arm was too small so I've added a bit of mass to it.
Also, put a bit more ambient lighting on her fringe as it looked a bit flat otherwise.
Anyway, will try to stop playing with it now!!
Well done! Thanks again for doing this request. I can't wait to see how your next picture comes out.
Cheers man! I'll load her to gallery!!
