Yep, it's Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic fanart. How I envisioned the player character during my first go through the game...

Oddly enough this is very close to Revan's canonical appearance... Great job!

I am refavoriting this now that I have a deviant ID that I'm actually going to use to share things. (I favourited your artwork before as redeemedjedi.)

I appreciate you taking the time to re-fav this pic! :) You excited for The Old Republic? I do love me some KotOR, but don't really want to play an MMO...

Yes, I preordered the Collector's Edition of SWTOR and even got to beta-test it! Thankfully, it's turned out to be as good as I'd hoped, and most of my initial concerns were unfounded. It really does feel a lot like KotOR, and BioWare wrote some great character stories as usual. Too bad I don't have more time to actually play...

Fantastic job. The colors are perfect for the pose. It looks almost like an Attack of the Clones teaser poster I saw once. Very nice job!

Finally a male Revan picture!

Love it. Seriously it rocks!

I love this picture, and the character design here is *very* well done, too!! The shading, the pose, the clothing, and background are all used to such a valuably and finely good degree, and you sure have used the right color choices for the job!!! :D

Excellent work, r4r3truffle, and it is thumbs up from me!!! :thumbsup:

:o This is the third weird-ass art coincidence I've come across in just a week!

Art coincidence #1: Discovered a person whose V for Vendetta fanart was identical in composition to mine - really, same picture, different art style.

Art coincidence #2: Someone's Star Wars art has her character in a running pose identical to the one I submitted last night in my own Star Wars art.

Art coincidence #3: Your picture here, of your KotOR character pre-darkside-corruption, has the same title as a pciture I drew of my own KotOR II character pre-darkside-corruption.

Yours is clearly better though.
Frandarts Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2006
That is just amazing... the pose, the colours, evrything is just perfect. He looks uber powerful too, just how I imagine male Revan. So favouriting.
StarDragon77 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2006
Wonderful work, though how did you give the painted light effect in there?
ex-m Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The sparkly light stuff is actually from an abstract 3d render I made in Bryce. =P
StarDragon77 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2006
AH, that does explain it.

I have loved this piece for some time now and never left you a comment ;__; It's so beautiful, his face looks so peaceful. The light sources from the lightsaber look perfect. I prefer male Revan and a female Exile myself ;)
NatalieKelsey Featured By Owner May 22, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
What a great Revan! Woo! I really like the colors and...well, everything else!
ElPanachino Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2006
I wish I could do coloring like this. Alas, I lack the skill to do it by hand, or the software to not. I really like this. Last semester my friends and I went through a phase where we envisioned what Jedi versions of ourselves would be like. If I ever make some refined sketches of them I'll post them.
KabochaN Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2006
Wow, this is really beautiful! The colors, the strokes.. <3
VaguelyFamiliar Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2006
I really like the coloring of the character vs. the coloring of the background. There's a definite mood to the piece, a feeling of being on the edge of something terrible or wonderful.
Plus, he's a total man-babe. ;)

How very lovely! You are a definite pro at drawing profiles. His face looks so gorgeous there. *envious* I will fave this, even though I've never played the game, or is much of a fan of Star Wars...

Wow, it's my DS Revan :D Hehe. Awesome image. Love the pose and colors. Great job!

Its just awesome ^__^. I love the sparkly stuff coming out of his hand, but wish it were a bit brighter.

And i thought it was physically impossible to draw a light sabre lol. Great work ^^, forgot to +dev watch you.

I haven't actually played the game, but I assume it's similar to the Jedi Knight series...nice painting...I love the lighting...I wish I could paint...:(
Industrial-Fire Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2005
Ah, this spectactular piece of art looks familiar. =) I love the lighting effects and the pose of the character...I'm going to assume you went dark side. =D
