Canderous for Mizzillan by DarthFar Canderous for Mizzillan by DarthFar
Pencil sketch #1 in the '5 Free Sketches' series. For ~mizzillan, who wanted Canderous, and left me to my own devices. I almost drew you Canderous in medieval dress (a la Knights in Tights), but there was this bit he said in K1 that I was rather taken with:

"I remember a time when I could do anything I wanted... Kill, maim, murder... It was all the same to me. But now... now that I'm older, I can look back and regret.... Ha! Good one. That's like a warrior should. Like what you see in a Mandalorian. In a Mandalorian... I'm not even sure what that is anymore. The Mandalorian are gone, defeated by the Republic and swept away by time.I look back and regret all the chances I had as a warrior, and then all the chances I've had since then. I shouldn't be getting like this, not when so many other things are happening... but...It feels like... like something has changed inside and I don't know what it is."


So I decided to do a serious drawing instead. I hope you don't mind. :) All in pencils (which kept breaking...), but I edited it on Corel to lighten the background a little bit so that the older Canderous would stand out.

Mizzillan did a very nicely coloured version of the picture. Please click HERE to view it. :)

Oh, and for the record... I am never drawing another Basilisk war droid ever again. :laughing: The hull wasn't too bad (although I think I messed it up), but the feed/hosing/whatever the hell that is! God! that was insane. [chuckle] I brought that upon myself, I did.

hehe nice drawing man. I know what you mean about the basilisk, I just finished modeling a 3d one of my own and I plan on never attempting that again. Way too confusingly set up.

Poor Canderous. I don't even really like the guy, but I do love his war stories. ^_^

Oh, and I recently named a model horse of mine after him... "Candy Man!" :rofl:

:rofl: It's been impossible for me to take Canderous seriously ever since I heard the name 'Candy Man'.

Same. :laughing: You know who else I can't take seriously? Malak. Sheesh, who wears a bright red Speedo that's ten sizes too tight anyway?

Thank you very much. :D I see you're a fan of Mandalorians.

I'll have to figure out more things for them to do...

This is fantastic! I really love the concept you chose to work with here. And I must agree with everyone else, you did a phenomenal job on the Basilisk droid. Amazing detail in there! I'd say you were insane for attempting it, but well, we already know about your level of sanity.

Wonderful job on the Basilisk, Far. I like the feel of the whole piece. It's kinda sobering. I like Candy's gun and armor on the right, too.

DarthFar Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2006
Thanks. :) I actually used reference for the Mandalorian armour (although you're probably wondering, where in space is his helmet???), but the gun... ah, the gun I made up. [chuckle] You notice I've a horrible tendency to do that, instead of being good and looking for references.

meh. Only a hardcore SW person would say "What the heck gun is that?" Everyone else is just in awe you can draw such great weapons. ;)

[chuckle] True... I don't think half the people who play KotOR can tell one gun from another. At least I can't. Quite. :laughing:

I wanted to add that drawing the basilisk was an admirable feat:) I sure didn't expect that.

Would you mind so terribly if I were to print it & color it later? You may be first to judge the results;)

You have more courage than I do. (Colouring those feed lines...!!). [chuckle] Yeah, sure, be my guest! I'd love to see it in colour.

Very nice drawing Far! Just one thing catches my eye, Candyman's face looks a wee bit flat to me? Might be me though, but I really love the mech in the back, very very nicely drawn! :)

:icondarthfar:
DarthFar Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2006
Uh yeah, it looks flat. :laughing: I tried giving him cheekbones originally, but they made him look vaguely grandfather-ish. I dunno, maybe it's just me too. [chuckle] Here, have a look at this fuller-faced version and tell me which looks better.

And I hate the bloody droid. :laughing: It looks like some kind of mutant squid fused to the back portion of a shrimp.

Hm... I think.. I say think... cause it's too hot here so I can't trust myself today, i'm melting! But back on topic, i think his forehead should be a bit more rounded and that the right cheek perhaps could be a bit more sloped, to give his face a bit more depth? Still it's a good drawing =)

I really love seeing your sketches, they rock so hard. This is fantastic, I'm so happy someone demanded for you to draw Candyman.
And as for never drawing a basilisk again, you sure? This is really nice looking, and I knew what it was when I first looked at it (which doesn't happen a lot *slow*) I also like the difference in the lines, too :D.

DarthFar Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2006
Thank you. :D The 'difference in the lines' was what caused my mechanical pencil lead to snap every five seconds or so - because I pressed really hard when doing the dark bits (and drew over them, over and over). And yeah, I'm pretty sure I won't be doing a basilisk again... well, in the very near future, anyway. [chuckle] Can you imagine colouring the hosing? Ghastly!
