One of these things I wanted to do for quite a long time...
(Yepp, today I got my lame shebs up and finished it ^^)

It's Kal "Kal'buir" Skirata from the Star Wars - Republic Commando books.
I can't help, but he became one of this very special favourite characters of mine right from the beginning, and I think he deserves far more fan art than he actually has ^^

And after I already did one pic of Fi Skirata ( [link] ) I thought "Why not doing some more RC characters?!" - Well, that was more than a year ago now XD
Just as the idea "to let him look like Ed Harris" I chose a picture of him as reference. And I have to say - Seeing Ed with some hair feels pretty... Weird ^^

Anyway, hope you like it.

(During the lst year I saw that my random Mando-pictures became somewhat popular as avatars amongst roleplayers, and actually I don't mind if you use it, but please do not claim my stuff as your own work, cause it... Isn't ;) )

I'm going to assume that the epic-looking planet behind Kal'buir is Manda'yaim. XD Awesome job on his armor and helmet. (How in the blazes did you manage that shiny look? I love it!) The only thing about this particular picture is his face doesn't look quite right somehow. To me, it seems like his mouth and nose are a little too big, or something. :/

First of all I'm very glad you like it so much ^^

To answer your question with making thinks look shining - I used lots of lighting- and shading layers again and again to put the effect to an extend ^^

Oh, and yes - The planet indeed is 'yaim ^^ I thought it would be perfectly fitting ^^

Hm. I'll have to try that on my own 'supposedly' shiny pictures. XD I'm a lousy artist compared to you. :P
