Ok so Vel's player Kelly hit me up last December with a payload of commissions for her gaming buddies. She recently hit me up with her part of the Christmas gift (to herself, natch!
) and she wanted my take on Vel as seen here [link]
The problem I have with line art is I find it's a hard act to follow. I love line art and I always feel that my meager 3d skills don't quite cut the mustard in comparison. But that is just me being overly critical of myself.
One thing for certain is the picture was unique. Which meant I had to sit down and figure out what elements I wanted to keep and could recreate in a 3d medium while putting my own touch on it. Let's face it, the sleeve things look awesome but in a real fight Vel is going to be lopping them off quickly. But I didn't care. Those sleeve designs and the colors to me is what really set the original image apart.
So I took it a step further and included Jedi script down her torso. I also wanted to do something a bit different. I normally do poses rather than full blown scenes but even those I'd like to mix up occasionally. So I got the idea of her ascending to the heavens and in the background was Ennoia just out of focus. Sort of like with her in spirit sort of thing.
Oh and the Jedi code says (right) There is no emotion, there is peace. (left) There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
