For a contest, she's supposed to be a Sith (evil star warsyness)
progress shots in my sketchbook thread
you have some good elements and design to your characters, however there are some serious problems in the drawing , head-to-body proportions. and i do realize that lightsabers CAN extend however shot or long the jedi desires, but it really doesnt add anything to the design or concept of the charater by having stubby little "light-daggers".
try working more on your proportions and more dynamic poses, capcom books have really cool design and action poses however their style kinda mandates they should bacause of all the exaggerations. so just try and keep your drawing and other elements correct before u go to the painting.
Are those light sabers meant to make everybody think what everybody's going to think? If not, better change them.
Iw as thinking something more sexual was intended for those... and i tihnk light sabers are a solid color not transparent. she looks like shes shocked not evil.

i can't say i thought 'dildo!' when seeing this...i can think of less dangerous things than a lightsabre to use as a dildo...like maybe a chainsaw or a stick of dynamite maybe....
there are a few issues with this drawing , but i think the biggest problem is she don't look evil. she's supposed to be a sith? whenever i'm plotting the downfall of the jedi i always make sure i adopt an officially recognised evil-doing posture and make sure i've got some nice dramatic lighting...maybe some nice red underlighting. or maybe a sinister cold blue rim light. i dunno, it depends on just how evil i'm feeling...
oh, and the lightsabres are too small. did anyone mention this?
The sith are evil as all hell, she looks like a 13 year old that's playing with make up, and the look on her face is just off. I like the short swords (light sabers). She needs to look the part of the sith, evil!
I am the unwanted, the unloved, and the un-needed. My only reason for living is to mess with your happy little lives.
she need the look like a skullraped druggaddic with a look of pure hatered on her face
..that is a rather splendid explanation of Sith appearance.
But hey, come on, evil and female sexuality has been put together since the start of the patriarchal society. I have no problems with the laser dildos, though I don't see dildos per see, but rather any type of fallos, and by golly, isn't the light sabre the most ingenious fallos of them all.. I mean,..
The face however reminds me more of a mixture of the Bratz-dolls and Bastila from KOTOR1, so yeah, the end results being a rather harmless apperance, which in combination with the aformentioned garments makes some sort of harmless chibi-harlot.
And if that is the aim, well then it's fine. If not, then there must be some alterations since the pic does not present any form of evilish feel to it, and the sexual innuendo doesn't matter in that sense.
Just my .02 Keep it up!
How fortunate the man with none..
