    Did these today with Copic markers and color pencils followed by applying a Photoshop filter to smoothen out the color pencil areas.
    Usually I only do pencil/ marker scribbles as I unfortunately have no experience with digital drawing and haven't painted on canvas in a couple of years, so I settled for this solution.

    Since we've seen a hint of Maul's possible return in last season's episode "Witches of the Mist" here's an idea how his comeback could go down:

    Maul somehow managed to survive with only his upper torso intact- no fancy cybernetic legs. He's living in a secluded spot of the Outer Rim, always cloaked in his dark robes, walking on his hands like a dug.
    Savage finds Maul, who's been spending the past eleven years meditating, strengthening his mental Force Powers, kinda like the GFFA version of an Indian priest.
    Maul discovers the potential of teaming up with Savage- him being the brains, using Oppress' muscles to become the ultimate warrior, striving to take revenge on Sidious.
    Savage could carry him in a backback, further continuing the Dark Side version homage of Luke's training on Dagobah we saw in Witches of the Mist.
    Maul learned using Sith Lightning, which he wouldn't reveal until the last second of the stand-off with Sidious, so he'd have the advantage of surprise. Combined with Savage's close-range combat powers, they'd stand a lucky chance against him.
    Which of course they wouldn't. Sidious wins. Thinking Savage was sent by the witches of Dathomir he decides to bombard their village so Mother Talzin is no longer a threat to his empire.

    Since TCW likes to pay an homage to Indiana Jones every now and then I have him a red Mola Ram sash.

    P.S.: Personally speaking, Darth Maul died as Obi Wan cut him in half, but I'm open to an original way of bringing him back, using him to explain new concepts about the Dark Side of the Force, similar to what they did with the Mortis arc.
