| Betrayal on Felucia
Secura is like Wonder Woman for me. I like drawing her, but never
really can get her right. So when this idea popped into my head
while watching Revenge of the Sith again I thought it a good chance to
get some practice in. That and I wanted to draw a pic of her that
didn't involve her topless with her tits waving around in the breeze
(do a Deviantart search for her and tell me it ain't the truth).
The title is actually borrowed from a Target exclusive action figure
set from a while back. I know the Jedi all have to die for the
story to move forward, but they didn't all have to go out like punks.
At least get a few licks in before the show's over. XD
Anyhoo, that's pretty much what spawned what you see here. I went
back-and-forth with little details in the pencil stage, more than I
usually do. Scanning actually helps with perspective with bigger
pieces like this. The sketch was done on an 11"x17" board, so
stepping back and seeing the whole picture isn't something easily done.
When looking at the sketch on the computer, it's easier to look
at the entire composition and fix pose errors and such. If you
compare the pencils as opposed to the inks, I did just that.
Namely with Aayla's pose.
I feel that inking is my weakest point and that I tend to drop the
ball, and this was no exception. After scanning the inks, I felt
like I completely screwed up Aayla's face and ironically pulled a
George Lucas move to fix it. I quickly sketched and inked a new
face and grafted it in via Photoshop (I left the inks here unaltered so
you can see the difference between that and the final colored piece
