I was kinda bored at work today, so I made this:
OK guys, here're the additional pics I promised of my Mon Calamari Jedi. I did some detailing tonight I hope you all will appreciate...
For anyone familiar with sea life, crabs and lobster take to cracked shells pretty well. They show a nice scar, but they do just fine with what appear to be pretty serious wounds. I imagine a Mon Calamari in the field is bound to take a shot in the head at some time, primarily because he's not all that concerned when something glances off the ol' dome. Check out the nice scar:
It is *very* difficult to capture in pictures (especially bad ones like the one below), but I've given him a secondary shell color - a nice cool green that's blended into the pinkish red we see on most Mon Cals. This is a shot of the back of his head. About as boring as they get, but the detail is in there if you look hard enough
Ready for action, sans photo effects on the beefy saber. It's about twice as thick as a typical lightsaber... I envision it as being some sort of light-meat-clever...
A slightly tighter shot with a photo effect lit saber.
Hooded and slingin' bolts. This shot shows some of the green detail better.
"Dude, seriously, this is just ridiculous..."
"It wasn't my idea, Ki. I promise..."
OK, if you've made it this far, I want your help. I'm struggling with a good name for this guy. I like two word names. Here are some I've kicked around, and if you like one please let me know.
I'm open to any and all ideas. I really love this guy, but his name won't come to me, and he needs a name. :p
