    Alright, I've been pondering to set up a thread like this for quite a while now, so here it is.

    I am the author of Rage of the Shadow Warriors, a series of fanfiction stories in Beyond the Saga that are centered on Mandalorians in the NJO-era. You can find links to it in my sig or my profile.

    Since I'm also an arty person, it's only natural that I make the covers for my stories. But it goes even further than that. In addition to photomanipulations I make to illustrate my OCs (often based on real actors that represent my conception of them), I'm diving even a little deeper and into technical things. Since I'm not a total allrounder, I can't do all of that myself (gee, I can't even draw properly^^), and am really indebted to great artists such as DarthKuk, CucumberBoy and itmon for providing me with creative help. Especially my buddy DarthKuk has done so much for me, I don't even know where to start to pay him back.

    All started with a simple request to draw one of my OCs from my first fic in his full suit of Mandalorian armor. Kuk came back to me with a rough draft which he worked into a better sketch that fitted the character perfectly, the Mandalorian Slug-gunner Ayden Stone, but he did even more. He was inspired by my request and drew a whole handful of concepts for Mandalorian with different specialities, and one of them also fitted for one of my characters, namely the Mandalorian Swordmaster (see his gallery). You can find all of his concepts in his awesome DevArt gallery on page 2. Then, we worked together on some details and he finalized the artworks. I was so thrilled by the Swordmaster, that I kinda "forgot" about my original request. I inked and colored that blade-loving Mando and ta-da!, we had Gladus Tite, one of my main OCs. I must admit, I feel very bad about having done anything on Ayden, yet, and that although it has been a year since he finished that drawing of him. [face_blush]
    Currently, Kuk and I are working on a big art project on my major OC, Ronan Barec. I can't post any progress on that, yet, unless Kuk is okay with it. Only one bit I that is already finished: Ronan's main weapon, the EE-23 weapons system. Kuk was very creative on that, and came up with a whole technical backstory and a lot of other stuff, I'm really indebted for this incredible work. I also worked on one of his concept on Ronan's insignia, see below.

    So much for Kuk. Like I said, I also did some photomanips of other characters, but you can see that in the list below. I also approached other artists, such as CucumberBoy who allowed me to use a blaster concept of his and then drew a modified Firespray fighter (like Slave I) for me, which I haven't finalized yet, either. Another artist who I approached is itmon from DevArt, who probably is barely known around these boards. He has a very unique style with trademark shady and dark ink linearts, and as it happens, my current icon here on TFN is based off a coloring of one of itmon's Boba Fetts. Anyhow, a few months back I requested a scene of Gladus Tite from him, and he came up with an incredibly awesome rendering: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/59398366/

    And although my stories are probably not even quality enough to "deserve" so much media, I really love detailing out my stuff, aside from the fun it is to effect photoshop sk1lls. :p

    But long story short, below you see a list of all kind of media around RotSW, which will be updated as new stuff comes. I also have set this whole thing up as a Gallery on the Fanon wiki: http://swfanon.wikia.com/wiki/Gallery_of_Rage_of_the_Shadow_Warriors_images

    Interesting idea and excellent artwork so far!

    I'll let this thread stay around as long as it doesn't turn into a pure request thread. Please keep it so that it's highlighting the art from the series. :)

    Alright, here's the first update:

    Berdan Ngajio Angantire, drawn, inked and colored by Khairul Hisham on SWAG, by request. I owe him for this. [face_peace]

    [image=http://www.swagonline.net/files/images/berdan_flat.preview.jpg]

    Berdan has not appeared in a RotSW story, yet, but sooner or later, he will.


    Also, I eventually managed to ink Kuk's amazing drawing of Ayden Stone. Lookee here: http://corranfett.deviantart.com/art/Mando-Gunslinger-Ayden-Stone-66351762

    EDIT:
    Forgot to add, Delta2094 is also working on a request from me, on the two-man Mando team of Kharritokh, a Noghri martial artist, and Atross, a Togorian explosives expert.

    He's got some early WIP here and here, and is doing a jaw-dropping job so far! =P~

    Be sure to check out his, and Hisham's, other art, too!

    Same with me, at least when I still had time to work on my art.

    Your work really does look great, and for the type of art your tryin for I just don't have a clue how you could improve. It already looks great.

    Only a little bit is my art. This thread isn't to showcase my art, I've got my own one for that. It's just to showcase all the art done by various artists for my fanfiction series. ;)

    Another little update, although not much...

    I got around to coloring Kuk-Man's Ayden Stone:

    You can probably expect another update very shortly, too... [face_mischief]

    Thanks, glad you like it. :D

    Here's the next update, this time with really awesome stuff from other artists.

    The first is the illustration for a scene from RotSW: Honor Guard the great CucumberBoy did on my request, he captured the battlefield/ravaged beauty atmosphere perfectly:

    The second one is the finished sketch of my Mandalorian Noghri martial artist Kharritokh of Clan Bahk'tor, masterfully put to paper by Delta2094.

    Both of them are amazingly talented, you really have to check out all their other work. :cool:

    Yeehaa! [face_cowboy] :cool:

    So you are gonna color it, too, then. Awesome to hear, it'll be fun to see our two different takes. [face_peace]
