Ah, Mara... **sniffles** Back in the good ol' days of the TTT... It's really a fitting tribute, as things stand right now--but I'm going to ignore all that and just enjoy this beautiful painting: her face is all MJ--fierce, contained...with a touch of feral there; fabulous job with her leather catsuit--perfect highlights! And I'm really liking that background, too--it's like folded black satin...very fitting, I'm thinking! This one is DEFINITELY a !
Thanks. Instead of going with a lighter color at a low opacity I would normally use for highlighting, I went with a darker shade (in this case a darker shade of gray) at a higher opacity to give it a more solid look.
I don't care if Mara is 20-something or almost 60 years old, she knows how to work the leather outfits . Although I've seen pics of Mara wearing a couple different kind of outfits, this one seems to be the definitive Mara attire. It certainly my favorite. I love drawing it .
Thanks. This is my attempt at a younger Mara (even though my first Mara wasn't exactly showing her age ). But I don't quite have her face the way I want it. Since I've decided that Famke Janssen is gonna be the basis for my Mara I was trying for Famke in Goldeneye. "Legacy" Mara would be "Jean Grey" Famke.
I'm sure I'll do better with the next pic .
I just love how you create the highlights on her costume!...it's not overly shiny, or to dull. You have a perfect balence there...and the facial expression! You also have a strength in this area! NICE WORK!!!
(But still awaiting the two double sided lightsaber action! *LMAO*)
The blaster was just something I came up with. Though I would say it's something of a cross between Han's blaster and the heavy blasters from the first KOTOR. I really didn't feel like drawing an actual blaster. Much easier (also see: lazy) to make something up .
