Rogue - Collab with Maquaii by DarthFar Rogue - Collab with Maquaii by DarthFar
Lineart by :iconmaquaii: Original here: [link]
Colours by :icondarthfar:

Wedge Antilles and a ... hovering X-Wing! A collaboration with the very talented =Maquaii. :D I took far too long to finish it, didn't I?

While I've had other people colour my lineart before (you two know who you are. I'm still waiting for you to post your pictures ;)), I've never had the pleasure of colouring somebody else's linework - until Maq came up with the idea of this collaboration. Working with somebody else's art is an eye-opening experience. You don't tend to think as much when working on your own drawings because you're already so used to your own style and you know where stuff's going to go, but when you're colouring somebody else's, there's a lot you learn about how other people draw and handle things in the process of working things out for yourself. It's educational. :nod: It's fun, too.

Man, how bright do those stars have to be, that you can see them from inside a well-lit hangar??? :laughing: Among other things! I ask you to suspend your disbelief... just for now.

To see the background and the hilariously ridiculous original backdrop, please click here: [link] Many thanks to `DragonWinter for the hangar idea.

Pretty wicked. Between the two of you you've got the line art down really well, and the colors...oh, the colors. I don't think that it could look any better. The X-Wing looks great, as if it really does have some years of service behind it, as it should. Wedge actually looks like he is supposed to, which for some odd reason surprises me--I guess I'm used to all the newer renditions of him nowadays. Anyhow, great job. Dig this. I dig this all around.

Oh I suspect you could see them as long as the force field let the view be clear. After all on earth we have all that AIR in the way soaking up the light pollution! Nice job on this both of you.

Hokey smokes, Bullwinkle! Lookit all the comments! :faint:

This is lovely, Far. You and Maquaii did a great job! :w00t:

I still say you need a fan club secretary. ;)

Bearing in mind that *you* were the church secretary who made the ghastly typo "Gory Lord".... uh.... ;)

Anyway, one needs a fan club before one can hire a secretary. And I'm not likely to have one anytime soon, so there go your plans. ;)

That didn't come out they way I wanted it......

I mean that Luke is levitating the X-Wing because Wedge wants him to fly again.....and Wedge is giving Luke a "that wasn't called for look" or something......

[chuckle!] He'd better not snag that flight suit of his anywhere, or he'll be going up with the X-Wing...

Well...I wondered about the S-foils being locked in attack position here, as well as the lack of landing gear... But seriously, for those of us that love pilots and starfighters, it just don't matter one hang! :p :laughing: Great lineart Maquaii, and fabulous coloring Far--together you make one fantastic team! I love the sort of "beat up" look of the ship--with her scoring and scuffs, just as she would be--a working fighter. And Wedge's hand, resting tenderly on her flank--great all around! :clap: :clap:

I'm wondering how Wedge even managed to fly the thing, given all the holes in it!!! :rofl: (Winter's idea; I loved it). But yeah, can't expect working fighters to look nice & shiny, I guess. Thanks very much, FF. :D

Very nice work. I also thought, "Why is he standing next to a hovering X-Wing?" LOL! Maybe his R2 unit was flying it for him.

Great job guys!

Er, actually, there's a magcon between him and space, if you look. ;) But the hovering X-Wing thing requires suspension of disbelief as it is, haha.

Agreed, great work by both of you! :D

Been thinking recently of doing an X-Wing-in-a-hangar pic myself actually, when I have some more time. Mine is a little different though. But yeah, one of my first responses was to go "Oh no, that's my idea gone!" :P

Well, there are plenty of things you can do with a X-Wing-in-a-hangar theme. ;) So I wouldn't consider that 'idea gone'! Looking forward to what you come up. :nod:

I've got several ideas for artwork, but need to fit them around a lot of college work. Either I'll be spurned into working on bits of it now, or it'll have to wait till July. We'll see though.
