General Malak - colored by JosephB222 General Malak - colored by JosephB222
Download for full-size image.


Finally done! Here is Malak, future Dark Lord of the Sith. This is the first time I've done a silver lightsaber. It actually came out better than I thought it would.

Now off to put both Generals together in one pic.

Final colored version here [link]

Seems that they either inspired the armor for the Imperial Knights. Or that the Imperial Knights inspired the armor for them. Either way, definitely loving it.

For the armor for Generals Malak and Revan I went with the armor in the game, plus how Obi-Wan wore Clone Trooper armor in the first Clone Wars series. I just gave them colors more in line with their final Sith outfits. Revan dark and maroon and Malak red.

Wonderful! It's interesting that this is a "pre-Sith version:" we can see a bit of the simmering anger in his features that may fortell that fall... :nod: LOVE the costuming--beautiful colors and detailing, and as usual, fabulous highlights! :clap: And I love that silver saber blade--I've never seen one before, and it looks awesome! :clap:

I'm glad you like. I don't think I've ever seen a silver saber either. Though I believe a certain class of knights or bodyguards in the Legacy comic use silver lightsabers, so I wasn't sure how I was gonna do it, but I just used a light gray for the saber's glow and it turned out fairly well I think. Especially against a gray background, so it should come out better against different color backgrounds.

Technically, this is wrong. Malak has no lower jaw, unless this is before that injury... buuut... if it IS pre Sith Lord Malak, then ignore this comment. (I want that silver saber)

What can I say?? He looks like pre-Sith Malak should be looking. And he looks very good:)

JosephB222 Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2007
Thank you. I did try to make him look "nicer", and not just in regard to attractiveness. Even though he became pretty evil in his own right, it's pretty obvious that he was following Revan's lead. So I did give him a softer expression while Revan looks like she could kill you with her eyes ;) .

Malak was a pretty cool villain. Though he did tend to carry on a bit. Makes you almost wish more Sith had that silent but deadly attitude like Maul ;) . But then it's not like Revan was very talkative either =p so he was probably just filling the silence.
I'm working on the final pic as we speak :thumbsup: .

Squee! Yay!

I liked him. And, well, my Revan always makes up for it in-game by being a chatty scout who would rather use charisma than fight anyone. :)

Of course! ;)

Let's just say, I don't have to do much fighting in KotOR I or II (or NWN or Baldur's Gate...or anything else, for that matter). I play a bard in many guises throughout the 'verse.

Cool. Though I like to fight. But I do enjoy not paying landing-docking fees and getting people to pay extra for services and things I sell :devil: . Though, in my last playthrough of KOTOR I tried regular persuade instead of force persuade when I was trying to turn Bastila back to the light and it failed and I was forced to kill her :tears: . I played the Star Forge level again, this time saving her, but having to kill her inspired me to want to draw that scene of having to kill Bastila. Melodramatic foo for angsty tragedy that I am ;p .

Very nice work of course - but isn't he wearing very smiliar "outfit" like Revan? Or is this just my imagination? I think there should be some differences. :)
Reply
:iconjosephb222:
JosephB222 Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2007
Oh, yeah. They both basically wearing the same type of armor (that was deliberate) at this point in the war, but they've already started putting their own personal touches to them. Going by their Sith armor in the game, I figure Revan likes the heavier colors, so I gave her the darker maroon, while Malak seems to like red, and since they're not yet dark side, I made the colors a little lighter (Malak's a little brighter than Revan's since she's the bad influence here, ;p ). And Revan's style leans more towards robes, so she wears her armor over a regular black jedi robe, and, it might not be too noticable in the pic, but her cloak does have a hood. Malak actually has a cape, no hood, and in both outfits we see him in (from both games) he has very high collars, so I put a collar on his armor. He also likes wearing bodysuits, so that's what he's wearing underneath his armor, plus he likes the skirt tails hanging from his belt, so I gave him one here (for modesty's sake we'll say :laughing: ).

Very subtle differences, but that's just the way I like to do things. If people notice those little details that's great.

Yes I saw few of those differences that is why I wrote "similar" (with the mistake I see now)! ;P :D
Thanks for the explanation. :)
