The Exile and Atton talk.

My new favorite page! I'm really satisfied with how this turned out. It feels like it takes a long time for me to produce a page, but I generally finish one a week, so that's not too bad. It's the coloring that really slows the process down. I get the layout and the drawing bits done in a day or two, and then slowly dredge my way through coloring. I don't think it'd be the same in black and white, though, so I'm sticking with "slow but colorful".

Atton is a bit of a drawing challenge for me. I usually only draw girls, and ones in their teens at that, so a 30-something male is making me stretch my skills. I took references photos of myself to help get the poses right, and that definitely paid off!

Thanks for looking, you guys. Have a great weekend!

Is Atton 30-something years old ?! O_O"
I'd imagine him in the middle 20s hahah... Or is this just a part of my fan-girl mentality ? :L
Either way, Atton looks really good :)

Considering the Exile has to be 30 at the very, very least...

According to Obsidian, Atton's late 20s, early 30s, which makes sense -- he was in the Mandalorian Wars over a decade earlier. Apparently he was originally to be older, but they made him younger because of the LI thing, and made him possibly younger than the Exile in the process. (Mical is 25ish. So he had last seen the Exile when he was 11 or 12 and she well his senior! creepy. And Brianna and Visas are both around 25 as well! Double creepy. At least Mira will tell male Exile that, even though he's at least a decade her senior [she's 23ish], she considers him far older because of what he's seen. So if one thinks the same of female Exile.....)

Yeah... he's between 30 and 40, probably much closer to 30. It's easier to imagine him in his mid twenties, but that's just not the case! Doesn't help that I'm not super awesome at drawing older guys...

Nice work. Also: jedi? There's no Jedi here. Nope, none at all.

Very good so far. I like how Atton looks. You emote the characters pretty well, which is good. And your Exile is close enough to my own version in my head, so it's not too jarring in that respect either.

Just want to say, whether it applies or not (still too early so far to really tell) that the best novelizations/adaptations always EXPAND on the source material and put a new twist on it, rather than just regurgitate it line-for-line (with a few visual aids in this case). If you've read the "Revenge of the Sith" novelization by Matthew Stover, you know what I mean. That book managed to turn a lackluster film into something fantastic just by adding and altering a few things on the same basic framework -- not really changing anything in terms of the actual sequence of events, but still being more. Not QUITE the same thing as a comic, but... I think it's a good place to set the bar, regardless.

Again, you know, I'm just throwing that out there. Not accusing you of anything yet. ;)
