We prepared. we grew stronger while you rested in your cradle of power, believing your people were safe, and protected... but you were deceived, as our powers of the Dark Side have blinded you... and now... finally... we have returned... You were deceived, and now your republic shall fall."

Why is it the bad guys always look cooler? oh yeah, because they're bad guys.

the sith and dark jedi are the scariest of them all; especially the ones who make viruses that turn people into zombies, like Darth Drear, Darth Scabrous, and Darth Vader himself. (shudder)

He almost looks like Xanatos, Qui-Gon's old apprentice.

I think it might actually be him, that name sounds familiar from the brief I had for the piece.

Yeah, you know what's interesting about him is that he didn't start off bad. He was originally a good character.

the last one had a pretty nasty ogre in it.
Oh, I need a little help. How the heck do you colour something in and make it look black? For me it always turns out to look dark grey.

Aww maybe he has a nice personality and a love of puppies once you get to know him.

Aah gotta love Star Wars baddies. They really cornered the market an badass look! While the goody two-shoes run around in white and dust rags.

Red may be an indication of bad intent, but i'm sure there are other colors that could indicate 'evil' even more powerfully.

It was only in 'the force unleashed', which i hear everyone hated because of the storyline, which was stupid as hell (an apprentice beating vader? yeah, right.) but there was one thing in there i found very interesting; a 'black' bladed lightsaber.

IT was actually a black core color with a white glow around the outside. i've seen lots of sabers before and after that, fan made, that were black cored with a purple outer glow, though. THAT looked freakin evil.

Hmm, definitely the shoes, they give him away...otherwise, I cant see ANYTHING else that says he's a bad guy. Nope. Not a thing. :giggle:

Jedi Academy source book? Hmm, sounds fun. But I have to admit to being more of a KotOR fan.

Wonderful job, as always! :worship:

Well-from what I read Jedi prefer not to use red lightsabers. That's a Sith colour.

Terrific artwork! I'll definately have to look for this book!

Love the light reflection about the feet. The over all simplicity of this one is nice, it's great that you added a shadow so that he doesn't have that " lost in space" feel that often comes with white backgrounds... And as tradition has it, generally any Jedi in black is bad news lol.
