*deep breath...exhale* So it would seem I have finally dredged up the guts to do this. *taps claws nervously* As of right now, my art is limited to pencil sketching because tiny living conditions prevent me from having the desk space to use my laptop and Wacom, however, once those conditions change, I plan to go back and do colored versions of these drawings. Anyway, first sketch: profile view of my NST character Grievance Vexx. The more I look at this one, the more I really do like the way this one turned out. It is extremely difficult to convey emotion on a character like this, but I think there is a pretty clear expression coming through the eyes, which are soft as though to imply he may be listening to someone (perhaps his master) and trying to understand a complex lesson. Second sketch: scene from the NST combo post with dragonsith13 when Grievance awakens to find he has been captured by Draconis. This one is basically my inner love for storyboarding coming out. I referenced the conceptual images used in Draconis' character sheet to try and get his look as accurate as possible, but I don't know if I'm entirely satisfied with the end result, so I am open to any and all suggestions for improvement (that of course includes any suggestions the character's creator aka my master may have for me). I was also drawing this on a fairly small sketch pad, so Grievance's size is not what it should be. On a side note, for inspiration while drawing this, I was listening to "The Beast" by Sabaton and I think the song really fits well with the scene of Draconis capturing and torturing Grievance. Third sketch: a portrait sketch of Darth Insipid because his character sheet image is strikingly cool and he is our supreme Sith authority figure Sinrebirth . *deep bow of respect* Now (hopefully) improved with a second take on the drawing below the original. This one needs some work, I know. The eyes do not look right to me, so I'm going to call out to HanSolo29 for any advice on fixing this. That aside, I was trying to capture that look that we sometimes see posted by the emperor-god, quirking a brow at a brazen peon, perhaps plotting a satisfactory way of expelling and/or exterminating said peon. I did take the liberty of garnishing his clothing a little bit, trying to push a regal look there. My apologies for the flaws, almighty smiter. I will be updating this one and the one above it as I try different techniques to improve the appearances. Fourth sketch: Reiis Invadator. I drew her pre-cyborg as Anakin.Skywalker writes her with such determination and defiance, it begs to be drawn in the facial expression. Again, I'm not entirely satisfied with this one. Humans are so frustrating to draw. I'm sure there will be improvements made to this one as well. Fifth sketch, requested: every Sith's favorite Wookiee, Darth Ravenous. I apologize if he is not entirely accurate, WookieeRage . I was going largely on your character sheet images, but more so on your written description. If there is anything I need to tweak, let me know. I had a lot of fun drawing him. Sixth sketch, requested: Minerva and Thrawn share a romantic moment. Nehru_Amidala , I know your request was an actual kiss, but I had this really good look going in those moments before lips touch lips and I just went with it. I really like the look and pose of Minerva, plus drawing a kiss often obstructs the view of facial features on characters and I really didn't want to lose what I had with Minerva's look. I can draw it again if you like and draw the actual kiss. Just let me know. Seventh sketch, requested: part two of the Minerva/Thrawn romance requested by Nehru_Amidala. I'll be honest. This is the first time in the history of ever that I have drawn a scene like this. It was a challenge because I had to get past my own qualms with certain facial features being obscured, but I think overall, it turned out kind of okay. Eighth sketch, gift: nihilistic_nihilus 's Sith character, Darth Nocturne. My buddy and I already discussed that his character's story and my character's story are briefly intertwined, so the Kaleesh half mask and the Sheelal cloak clasp are gifts from Grievance as gratitude for Nocturne's aid to Kalee. I really had fun designing the mask. Ninth sketch, requested: Halle Dray 's Sith character Kwea Acantha. I went a little bold with this one after reading her character sheet and tried to capture the spirit of a female warrior, hence the attempted dynamic pose. I ran out of paper drawing the extended arm holding the lightsaber and posed her free hand as though she may be about to throw out some Force-lightning. The angle is supposed to be from behind and to the side, but I'm not sure that is clear at a glance. Sometimes it looks right to me and then it doesn't. In any case, Halle Dray, if there is a detail I missed, please let me know and I will adjust/fix/update. Tenth sketch, gift: for the Headmaster of the KoD, Draconis aka dragonsith13 in return for an unmerited favor. I told you, sir, that it was not taken lightly. And I can't draw a straight line to save myself, sober or not, so I gave the sword a unique edge to cover my flaws. X( Eleventh sketch, random doodle: just my character glowering down from the rafters. Anyway, thanks for looking and, again, critiquing is most welcome.
