Oh man... on impulse choose to reply KotOR 2 today (I found I still love it ) and then felt like looking for new fan art I may have missed in the last year or so, only to discover your awesome fan comic (I'm so adding you to my watch list since I must have more). By pure chance I also choose to play as a blonde female too (going cannon sex but light side atm), I only wish this was a playable model since she really fits my idea of how the Exile should look. btw on that front I looked through the rest of your art and her design seems close to your almost self portrait (blonde, similar hair style, and general figure) so I have to ask out of pure curiosity was this by chance or on purpose?
Though on the looks of the Exile department, I suppose we will get the cannon description of her once the new Star Wars book entitled Revan comes out, since she is a "major" confirmed character in it. Details of the book here [link] release date seems to be 11/15/2011. Though it doesn't really matter I suppose since I like your design of a slender blonde female with longer hair Though I do hope she can get back on the light path in the books (like Revan saves her or something, not saying romance or nothing (though it could potentially work if Bastila is written out when Revan leaves) just Revan sees her as a sin of his and chooses to help her).
Thanks for the information on the book. I will have to read that, since I would love to get more canon background information on Revan and the other mentioned characters. And of course I will be playing The Old republic when that comes out, too. It's time for some gameplay that takes us back into the comfortable world of kotor!
must have remembered some stuff wrong... wookieepedia is saying she was light side/neutral and that she had brown hair... funny how that wasn't an option in the game, unless you include the sandy blonde model, and there was 3 blonde models
I was planning on cosplaying Exile for Star Wars Celebration V last summer, and so I was modeling her outfit to fit my looks. After tons of sketches including my long blonde hair and looks, she kind of got stuck like that in my mind. In the end,I made a Mira costume instead, since that would be far more recognizable. (Actually, most people thought I was Mara Jade. Hello? Since when does Mara wear a wrist rocket and a teal crop top? You silly Non-video-game-playing-luke-warm-fans!) When I decided to do a comic some months ago, I needed to pick a character look based off of the options offered in the game, since I'm trying to be as close to canon as possible. The short brown hair model, which is Lucas Arts canon, has never appealed to me. I generally play using the cute Asian model, but that's because she's the most aesthetically appealing of the group. Dark hair is what I imagine for Revan, not Exile, so I went with a light-haired model. The girl with the blonde bun is pretty good looking, and that bun implies that she has long hair. So that's how my Exile came about. A combination of the in-game offering and myself. So now if this comic took off and became a world sensation, I would be able to cosplay Exile and be easily recognized since she looks like me! Haha!
Thank you for reading and watching, I will be updating soon and I appreciate the input! Nothing like opening DeviantArt and seeing a big, long comment! Great way to start the day.
