Sith Lord by cmalidore Sith Lord by cmalidore
So as things get stressful for me, I rely on over to art to suck me out of it a bit. As such, things hit hard this week and I was urged to step back and rest a bit.. so I went over to conceptart and checked out this week's CHOW Challenge - which was, "Female Sith Lord"

And so that is what I did to pass the afternoon and escape my brain.

Painter X in like 4 or 5 hours. Good painter practice, starting to get more comfortable with it.

Ah, nice. I especially like the red hair. I rarely see a female Sith or otherwise dark side themed female character with anything but blonde or dark hair, and its nice to see a Sith Lady where someone tried something new.

I wasn't very held back by previous art as I honestly don't look at much Star Wars artwork. Which was a big reason as to why I wanted to do this - I like trying something when I don't have a strong understanding of what others have done on the fine details.... just a basic idea, y'know? Harder to be held back. I had very low hopes for this piece really - so it's nice that it turned out.

Glad you like it :D

Is this any Sith in particular? Or a made up one?
Either way it's great.

Nobody particular, which is why I did the challenge - it's always to design something new :)

Wow, badass. :D This is one of those good-all-over things... there's really nothing to comment on specifically, it's really great. :)
As always, I love the light sources, though. You always pay great attention to them.

Nice work man, Makes me want to get back into doing some SW fan art. You never fail to impress me. The only thing I can say is that the circle on the back of her hand is really drawing my attention to that area so if that is what it is for then its great, but otherwise it takes me away from her eyes more then I would like.

Hmm perhaps I could do something different with that spot... don't want it taking too much focus. Some isn't bad, but I imagine it's pulling a lil more than I want. Good catch :)

I'm glad you like it!

Nice work, funny how this popped in my deviations after I just watched Darth Vader's horrible 'noooooooooo' on Youtube, haha! ^_^

You could probably make the lightsaber even brighter, notice how the lightsabers are nearly always pure white in the center.

Good job!
cheers

I have considered that a few times but each time I talk myself out of it based on the fact that the image doesn't mean a ton to me here. Perhaps some day I'll iron out a few of the kinks :)

Superb work!
I really like everything about it, and it does scream Star Wars, which is the point eh :)
Personally I like the straight line down the right hand side, but I think that shoulder could've done with a little more form, but yeah, it's bloody good mate! :)
Excellent face :)

I really agree about her left arm, but I still Like this piece. her expression and the use of red that accentuate the cold colors work so well for me.

oh yeah, the lightning effect could always be more dramatic :D.
