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
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.
