Designing Jedi

I’ve been pretty busy in the afternoon with a friend over (short but fun) and I haven’t really been able to think of anything to write today. So I went and jumped back into Inkscape. I’ve always liked to have these awesome movie style “posters” for my stories and this was particularly the case for the Star Wars stories. With Order 66: Another Side, Another Story close to being posted I figured it was time to blow some new life into that desire. And since the chance of me hiring the services of a talented illustrator were slim I decided to give it a shot myself. Now my drawing skills are, well, let’s call them limited. Thankfully I can always count on Inkscape and the Order of the Stick style to allow me to get some at last half-decent visual work out there. ^_^

Don’t get me wrong. It’s a style that still requires a lot of time, energy and skill to pull off and every time I work with it my respect for Rich Burlew grows exponentially! I’d say it’s easy to learn, but difficult to master and I’m definitely still very far from the master part. I like to think I’m improving, though. ^_^

Right. Well, I’ve started designing the characters from the Order 66 that will end up on the (digital) poster that I’ll be attempting for the story. First up is Jedi Knight Bultar Swan, one of my favourite Jedi and among the less than handful of canonical Star Wars characters in the story.

The result so far is not even nearing a proper final product (especially when you consider the original… Sorry, Mimi! ^_^;), but it’s a definitely start. Not sure how yet actively I’ll be sharing the progress, but with the banner done I do think I have found myself a new drawing project. Shiny!

By the way, you might have seen I’m learning how blog customization works even further! Right now I finally managed to get the categories visible in the sidebar and give Me and the cloudy copper beech tree a place in my little “Who, What, Where, Why” description. There is hope for me yet! ^_^

Now to figure out how to replace the text title with the banner. Step by little step I’ll eventually get there!

 Well, see you around, everyone!

About

Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

  1. […] but another of my characters carrying that name. As a sort of homage to my favourite Jedi Knight, Bultar Swan we have Raphida, whose full name is an anagram that (when solved) clearly connects her to […]

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
