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.

Yeah, I just saw that in your gallery. Hats off to you for having the courage to tackle a project like that!

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?

:rofl: You understand then why I got a kick out of making fun of him. Sheesh, he must have the worst fashion sense in the entire KotORverse.
