    Hey! I was thinking about this thread the other day, and had a thought about the window behind Jaina. What if you did something like a stained glass looking sword behind her?

    I love Art Nouveau and Mucha! I have these Art Nouveau Tarot cards and you're work made me think of them too. Zekk is my favorite, but I love how you made the female Barabel look feminine! that's not done very often! Please give us more! It's a fantastic project! :D

    These are lovely! I especially like the last three. The detail and sense of motion is amazing, and the characters' personalities really shine through in your drawings. Wonderful job, and thank you so much for sharing these. =D=:D

    I like to see Raynar Thul in a billowy skirt. This is nice. Tenel Ka too. These would be great colored although the pencil detail is great as is. Although I thought Barabels had no boobs (believe me, this is important; boobs on a Kaleesh caused a major whinefest at a Grievous community I went to D:)

    As for the reptilian Barabels...check out the "Shadows of the Empire" comic, specifically Skahtul and the two pages after the full-page panel of Leia meeting Xizor. Shahtul definitely has breasts. I'd thought against it too though. Ever seen the show "Gargoyles"? Females laid eggs but had breasts too....

    Mazzic, I found some of your artwork in a search and found them so inspiring that I had to color them. I didn't know it was your work at the time, but the wonderful FF saw it and directed me to you. Absolutely amazing, is all I have to say. And I really hope you don't mind I colored it, I do not in any way claim it as my own artwork---the coloring is all I claim ;)

    Thanks for the compliments, JenkiMimay! The coloring looks great, sorry the images were so poor quality! :)

    I just finished a 9-month project, and have a some down-time to revisit these. Sorry it's taken...uh...several years to work my way through them! Rest assured, I will finish them sooner or later!

    Stay tuned....

    PS I'm giving a stab at coloring as well...

    Man, still at it? Mazz, you ever get the whole shebang done and colored, and I promise you, you'll get a link on TFN about it.

    Wow! Great job Mazzic! I especially love Tenel Ka, she looks so regal. Would you mind if I colored some/all of them?

    I finally have accurate scans of my eleven drawings (no more digital photos)!!! The problem was, every drawing is so damn tall (about 18 inches!), and it took a while to find a large-format scanner.

    It's much easier to spread out at a coffee shop and start slinging digital color...so instead of finishing my Tahiri illustration, I took a stab at coloring Jovan Drark.

    [link=http://fc04.deviantart.com/fs28/f/2008/110/5/8/Jovan_Drark_by_SoCalTrojan.jpg]Check it out here![/link]

    I'm not convinced I'm super happy with the coloring...and am open to suggestions. It's hard to color in PhotoShop without the figure looking too plastic...but applying textures often makes it look overly "filtered" as well. Thoughts?

    I was basing the coloring on [link=http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/2/28/Legacy_characters.jpg]Adam Hugh's "Legacy" covers.[/link]

    More to come!

    Both look fantastic. They look like they'd fit right in on a legacy cover.:D

    Looking great - did you lose the windows-in-the-BG idea, or are you adding all that in later?

    Wow! I first saw your work over a year ago and thought it was amazing. Great that you've gotten the time to get back to these illustrations, since their some of the best I've seen yet. And I love that you draw Art Nouveau style! Alphonse Mucha is probably my favourite artist.

    The colourings are awesome, they give the pieces a calm but a little threatening mood. I think it suits them really well, considering what they went through at Myrkr...

    All in all, great work and I hope you keep at it. I'd love to see your take on Tahiri and the Solo kids.
