is your scanner that slow?
Discussion on Lev'ika's Custom Mando Art within the Expanded Universe Bounty Hunters forum, part of the Star Wars Universe category; is your scanner that slow?
is your scanner that slow?
well my computer is
here it is
Vod that is really good, I like it a lot.
thanks but like i said its only a two hour job and could have done way better
sweet for a 2 hr job, and your art is getting better, seriously better, keep up the practice.
I might take this again later and spend more time on it to make it look real good It was fun drawing Lotr... should do it more often
gotta love fantasy, but right now I'm watchin revenge of the fallen in bluray, in the home theater with the kids, they love the 400watt stereo, right now were under the testicles
hmmm... not bad... *grumbles* hmmm... mandos *grumbles* draw...mandos *grumbles*
lol kidding... looks good
haha! I consider that a compliment
And adonian... IM JELOUS! that was a great movie, watched it 3 times in theaters
$19.00 for a bluray!! at walmart, talk about cheap
really? well my brother bought himself a ps3 so i dont need to get one
I ment the movie
I got my player for $98.00 when they made a price mistake, now that was a good deal.
alright guys... goin away for a couple days again, lev'ika I think that gives u some time to get some stuff done... right? lol
thanks that means a lot!
Kandosii Lev'ika!!! My first love before Star Wars was LOTR and related stuff...I've seen lots of really good looking fan art, and THAT piece ranks right up there with them!
...now get some colour on it...
thanks I hope to colour it eventually
Most of you have already seen my mando bucket which is almost nearly completed. But in terms of armor wise: neck, chest, shoulder, ab, and gauntlet armor I have no idea what kind of design to put into the armor when I paint it. So I am hopping you can lend me a hand Levi.
To show through what I've come up with so far. Here is what I have come up with so far.
That is basically it. I am just looking for a design for my mando armor. I have strong colors of red, black, and white but am not sure how to put them into the armor. I have my idea of using a DC-15S blaster rifle and holding a lightsaber trophy on the upper right leg. If you can (and take your time) please help me out in this. All I need is a design for the armor pieces. Do what you can? Thanks!!!!
Man i love doing this haha it piles up but i just feel like this is what im meant to do (wow that was strangely deep!!)
You're added to the list vod, ill try to get to your as soon as possible
Thanks a bunch....can't wait to see how it comes.
i once again feel like i need to apoligize.... I didnt have any time to scan in the sketchs i have finished just got home and dont really have time, but it does give me time to add a few little details
Thanks for you patience guys! i know ive been a little unreliable lately (dang school!)
Lev'ika... I'm back in my hotel room and not seein' any progress... Ori'ad, where's that darn lightwhip of yours? lol
haha!! im sorry!!!
tomorrow i promise!! and right now i can only finish up the ones ive started
Sketchbook has been filled
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZttttttttttttttttt CRACK Drawing blood.
OOPs a little too hard
Here lemme rub some salt on that to make it feel better JK
Did you see my ideas for my light claw on my thread?
oh ya! i like!
oh just for everyone to know
in the next few days ill be setting up a paypal... i considered putting a cost on my sketchs but i just couldnt do it. So i decided that i would take donations just to keep me going you know i need to pay for the drawing and colouring supplys (which im getting pretty soon) and the kit so if you're feeling generous i would really appreciate it
Of course... I did donate to Kal, so I'll donate to you as well. This is a costly hobby................BUT A FUN ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I NEED TO GET GOOD AT ART.
yeah lev'ika I'll definately try to help u out a bit since I'm asking so much! lol I think I'm going to post up a we accept donations thing on our joint thread too... I have about 3 sketches started here, I'm going to try to finish 'em up.
OK SRSLY DONATIONS
for stories... that's all I'm good at *gifted and talented in English language, French, Spanish and German, all of which I speak fairly fluently*
yeah we don't charge directly (don't have the heart...or lack thereof), we basically offer ppl the option to help support the sketching. It's something I'm still going to do either way... but it makes it easier with donations to offset the costs of the sketches. For example... the donation from Ori'ad went to buy a new sketch pad... that was used for the most recent additions to my sketch thread. It is my personal policy (not speaking for Lev'ika) that any donations I receive for my artwork WILL be reprocessed into the artwork. So basically, any funds received, results in new stuff likes pens, paper, etc... meaning more art.
Yeah, I guess that's true. So My idea of stores wouldn't work, because I can do them for free. ****. I wouldn't have thought a sketch pad would be that expensive, here you can get a full size 200 sheet pad for about 93p *around $2*
yeah a regular notebook is fairly cheap here too... the thing is, I use special pads, they come in 25-50 sheet pads and it's very clean, bright white paper with a VERY, VERY fine grain to it. It's also an unusual size 9x13" pages. Unfortunately... I usually go through about 2-4 pages per sketch just because I mess up a lot, and the fine grain paper is hard to erase, but I get a much, much higher quality appearance with the ink and it scans better than regular paper. The ink is the real killer tho... that stuff costs a lot because to get good quality inks for what I do, I'd have to drop almost $100 for a single set of pens. I DON'T DO THAT!!! I pay $20 for some lesser quality inks, and try to compensate by using better quality paper and working with much lighter, more careful penning.
Ya any donations i receive will either be put towards my art or kit (mostly art)
I plan on buying special colouring things and my sketchbook is offically empty
Ok this one im experiencing a few problems with. I cant seem to figure out how to draw the legs in a way that looks good. In the end hes going to be leaping over a nexu while shooting his flamethrower.
Right now its only waist up
it's actually hard to do... I have trouble with action shots just because of the various dimensions. You'd think that dimensions don't change, but the thing is that they do based on perspective, vanishing point, etc... I have a hard time with it too.
In a way it is kind of looking good. When given the chance I will send you donations. Right now I am having to keep a save on my money for school things. Naimly, get my spring classes set up and finding the books I need for those classes. But so far it is coming out pretty good.
I cant tell you guys how much i appreciate this. Right now i have to find time to get to the bank to find out all the info i need to make it, so for now theres no paypal
yeah lev'ika ur sketch is developing well
i colored it what do you think alpha?
it looks sweet.. i would just take the red lights out of there, looks to much like eyes
just for anyone curious.. this is the original
i think i like the red lights like that maybe ill have his eyes to show and just make the bind fold a bandanna
i did a bit more work on it , i like this one
hmmm... Lev'ika do you have anything to post for the week ner vod?
I have one for Jason thatll ill get up today hopefully, and the C1RCAs completed sith
kandosii! Can't wait to see it! I'm sooo bored right now. I'm on day 2 of a 6 day break in training, without anything to do. Going to go get a new sketchpad today tho (hopefully) so I may have a few sketches ready to color when I get back.
^^ wish i could draw Still, i can admire you two :P Good job Levi'ka, awesome work
but Pacx u have a creative gift in story telling... which is very important too. Instead of drawing with lines, u draw with words ner vod.
absolutly vod, story telling is a gift.
they say a picture's worth a thousand words... but a thousand words can paint a picture no brush will ever match.
*sniff* Very philosophical, guys *wipes a tear away from his eye*
*sniff* Sure... *sniff* sure. I need to get writing!!!!
i hope you dont mind me asking this but.. Im really busy drawing sketchs, writing a bio for C1RCA, and working on my kit so i was wondering if maybe you could write me up one sometime. If you are willing ill pm you with the details i already have
But of course, mon ami! I have absolutley nothing to do now, and seeing as that's the case, I can do one now. PM me ASAP!
ok sweet ill do that right away
ok i promised these sketchs so here they are.
Im not that impressed with this one but you guys can judge for yourselves.
and im sorry for the quick lightsaber job i needed to get it done
looks good to me , now time to throw it in photoshop and color it =p
Ehehe. Nice work.
i think both look pretty darn good lev'ika
thanks i just wish that i could have done better on Jaysons
i like that one best of the 2 actually
Levi, I put an image up on my thread for what the cheek should look like.
hey lev'ika u need to post that up into the joint art gallery thread
ok ill do that right now
ok here he is , ill have to fix the lightsaber blade later i messed up =/
what do you think?
Looks good.. those werent supposed to be eyes but they can be if you want them to
heh i know but i like it like this =p
Galaak Vhi'htor - A biography
As comissioned by Alpha-Ø2, written by Je'Karta Prudii
Galaak Vhi'htor was born on a small farm on Concord Dawn just prior to the beginning of the Mandalorian Civil War. He knew nothing of his culture and heritage, and his parents tried to keep him as far away from any Mandalorian culture as possible for fear that he would join the True Mandalorians. However, when the war spilled onto Concord Dawn, his parents were killed by Deathwatch forces, and he was left homeless and helpless for just under a week, before being rescued by Jango Fett and Jaster Mereel. He was recruited into the True Mandalorians and soon became friends with Jango, spending all their free time in the firing range. However, as they grew older, Galaak saw his friend become more and more distant from him, spending less time with him and more with Jaster. Very soon, they didn't even speak when they met in a corridor. As Jango became one of Mereel's top lieutenants, Galaak was still a mere footsoldier.
After the defeat on Concord Dawn, Galaak left Jango as Mandalore and became a mercenary and bounty hunter, spending 3 months tracking down and killing the last members of the Deathwatch. After Jango left with his Curvayl Dar to Kamino, Galaak met up with him on Dantooine, both hunting for the same bounty. After a quick exchange of pleasantries, Jango agreed to let Galaak have this one, though he wouldn't be as lenient next time. As a parting gift, Jango gave Galaak a crushgaunt he had acquired after Mereel's betrayal.
After the last of the Deathwatch had been killed, Galaak gave up bounty hunting and became a mercenary, and begana search for others like him. It was then he met Adonian, a quick-thinking warrior famed for his bold tactics, Kal Waco, an expert marksman and Close Quarter Combat master, Nevu, a retired soldier from the 81st Elite Battalion, who had left after the death of his brother, A'den Krymuand, a deadly fighter, feared for his brutal fighting style, and Jayson, a scout known for his die-hard attitude. Together they formed a clan and began killing Jedi, collecting numerous pelts. Galaak collected over 15 lightsabers as trophies after a successful raid on the Jedi Academy. It was there his received a near-fatal blow to the face, severing part of his cheekbone. It was surgically replaced by Jayson, a qualified medic, and after the injury he tended to fight more cautiously than he had before. After the incident, Nevu joked 'I bet you wish Prudii was around!', referring to Je'Karta's medical skills.
After the Yhuzan Vong war, the clan drifted apart, each going their separate ways. They all stayed in touch, however, and once met up. After his glory years, Galaak had collected a large amount of trophies, from wookie pelts, lighsabers and blasters, the scalps and armour pieces. One of his more prized weapons was an acquisition he had discovered in the ruins in the south hemisphere of Taris - A cortosis blade, fashioned by hand in pure cortosis weave. It became invalubale during his jedi hunting career, due to it's ability to short out lightsaber blades, leaving his victims defencless against blaster fire. It was said that Galaak had enough in small arms to take down a planet. After his retirement, he married and had children, and shortly after their ascension to the Mandalorian ways, he died peacefully, and was buried in full Mandalorian armour, with each of his weapons.
Hehe, whatcha think Alpha? I kinda like it. Sorry i slipped so many referances to me in there, its because of Nevu - his bio was based around me so i figured yours should be lovingly sprinkled with Prudii flakes. Oh, and if Jayson, Nevu, and Adonian wanna tell me their mando'a names, I'll gladly put them in.
EDIT: I added the cortosis blade, but I'm gonna revise it after Mr Waco gets his story finished.

Wow. I did good!
Alpha- nice work vod'ika! My advise on legs: look at your own, note the joints and proportions. You are your own best example when doodling.
Hey Pacx my name (mando'a) is Kal Waco ner vod. I'll PM ya with some specifics and see what you can come up with for my story.
Duuuuude! I had chills when i read that!! GREAT JOB! You took the my few sparks of creative ideas with Jango and such and turned them into a story.. after i asked you to do it i was wondering why i just didnt do it myself BUT IM GLAD I DIDNT! Liked the ending too!
I want to appoligize for this but i remembered that i forgot to tell you something that i wanted in my story. This would make sence even if it wasnt in the story since you had the reference to my trinkets and such But shorty after the beggining of my jedi hunting carreer, I dont have any idea how i come across it but you can think of something but i get my hands on a cortosis blade, forged from cortosis ore. This metal had the ability to short out lightsabers on contact... im sure you understand how THAT would come in handy when fighting jedi
heres a link to it on wookieepedia to prove i just didnt make it up http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Cortosis
Im sorry about forgetting about that but if you dont mind adding that in that would be awesome
Of course, anything for my clients. Kal, your story is in the making. Wow, I need to make a story thread xD
All done ^^ as you can read, I'm gonna revise the whole thing eventually. I'm not completely satisfied. If I was SAZ, I would charge you half price because its not up to my standard xD
Just kidding, we love you really saz
All looking extremely well vod. Love the lightsaber one you have done. That is a most impressive one seen so far. Keep 'em coming.
hey lev'ika gettin' anything done? I've got 3 WIPs... no scanner/markers tho. I'm kinda hitting an artist's block right now tho, have 2 requests and don't know what to do with 'em! lol
haha i know what you mean!! Im workin on Adonians dark jedi mando currently and going to start an unplanned group sketch of our clan after pacx did the story for me just made me want to do one!
Ok heres the current plan
Adonians dark jedi
One for Kal and Fi
lol yeah I have plans for at least 2-4 more, inlcuding a group sketch... still working on the REALLY, REALLY big group sketch, and I plan on using this one to start it up right. I also found some really cool action shots that I want to try my hand at too.
only 1 for me? which one? The action one or the keldabe kiss?
when i wrote that i meant it as all of the ones for you well pretty much just those two all of your clan sketchs will get done eventually (I hope :/)
lol ok sounds good to me... need a morale booster! lol
lol, well now that im thinking of it (no idea why) anyone got any creative ideas for my cortosis blade? ya i kow its a random question
lol I'm sure I could come up with somethin... have u thought about using one of those new Nerf N-Strike swords?
i have but i decided that would be my fall back idea if i couldnt find something else
oic... well they have the wider bladed version coming out soon I think... it's a hair bigger than the original, made for two handed use I reckon.
Hmmm well i think ill just wait for that then.. it sounds perfect
Ok i have (what i think) is a cool idea for a clan name
Vandel Shadow... tell me what you think
Or Vanel Shadow
I like it ! I need to make a clan myself... i alreayd gots a name...
nice... do you have an idea for your clan?
I was gonna make it a group within the 1st Mandalorian Medical Corps, but I'd need to find some other people to join it.
Ok, i see
Ok Adonians dark jedi mando is finished scanning right now
here it is adonian
