Wow! so many awesome entries this is going to be a fun chow. I cant wait the see all the finished pieces. here is what i got so far, we will see where it goes.
The only constant is change.
Come check out my sketchbook critiques welcome
Holy crap! This is one popular round. Some favorites so far - Clochette, rushwolf, trevor, and by far Vorace. As soon as I saw your post I knew we'd all been pwned
As for my own entry, I don't know what I'm doing anymore :/ I think I need to leave it alone for a little while before I ruin it more than I already have.

Give this a try, altough i am not really into Star Wars!
.... and the slow turtle shares a little wip. Found a photo ref after all and decided to finish my sitting Sith. Just for the sake of finishing.

Greyscale finalized and ready for colorization:
Used a roughly Bespin-like city for the BG rather than Coruscant, I like the forms better for this situation.
Continuity Break -- my sketchbook
Kata femme -- a 3D model WIP, now updated!
The Giordano Gambit -- Barsoomian Zingball at its best!
Valkyrie Ascending -- now updated with the second in a series!
ArmaRagnaGeddonRock-yer-Yuga! -- celeztial shitz 'n' gigglez
I . Miss . America -- "colored [eyes] may hypnotize..."
"In the end, Razputin, aren't we all just dogs playing poker?"
-- Edgar Teglee
here's mine so far- started to fill in the figure in grayscale. hopefully i'll have that stage done tonight. critiques are more than welcome!
well im out. i figured i had improved enough to go swimming in the big pool but i guess i should stick to the kiddies pool for now.
I second Daray.
PianoForte. There is no harm in doing the work, even if you (we) may not be good enough to be accepted for the voting.
so since my last post was poodo, was ultra cliché, and indeed lacked any sort of back story
i created a new character, and decided to try and imagine the origin of the light saber, when all that was available were the crystals
I agree. PianoForte, finish and post you must.
Mostly fumbling in the design idea right now. wanted a more mechanical style sith queen or something. Her hands/forearms transform into her light sabers. I'm thinking she needs to have a more "evil" look. she seems to regal in design I think right now.
I'd love to say something specific about peoples work but its all looking killer. Real inspiring folks!
so much added in just a day, seems like I get nowhere fast
I like where so many are going, I think i'm just going to try and not ruin this one.

Finally got around to working on this some more.
I'm not sure about the pool of light/doorway at the bottom there... I wanted an idea of someone coming into the room (to match her "bitch plz, are you really trying this?" attitude), and also an excuse to have some light from the front... Crits?
added a little more:
My Sketchbook :: Phantasmagoria
Illustration Portfolio :: jasonsnair.carbonmade.com
Design Portfolio :: jasonsnairdesign.carbonmade.com
My Blog -- Feed Me Toast!
Okay, added some sketch background. Now to clean it, add some more details and colour it... in fact, I'm now watching the Tatooine scenes from Episode 4 to get that seedy starport feel Mos Eisley has This is getting more and more fun.
well when you put it like that.....i'll go for it!
spent all my time concentrating on Motion Graphics & 3D for the last 2 years and hoped somehow that my drawing would have advanced as well. (which was rather foolish of me)
so thankyou to Daray, DauDau & Sulk-Sal for giving me the kick i needed to get back on the horse.
Wow, am I out of my league here. Can't improve if you don't try though, right?
Update, tried to fix the arm and head position. Thanks for pointing that out. It now has base colors.
this is the worst part, i think.
I wield my pencil like Scottish warlords of old bore their claymores onto the battlefield: art is a weapon both subtle & cunning,
all the more because you never see it coming. Art is my craft and my passion; my first love and my last romance.
So I nestle my brush in the swancurved bend between thumb and forefinger, purr to it soprano sweet,
stroke my canvas till it cries out vibrato on the downslide and sings sweetly back its love for me.
mj Alcazar: If I might suggest something, try working on the values of the image in greyscale before you go into colour? It helped me to start doing this to get a better range of values over my images. try using a brush at low opacity with the multiply option to build your values.
Im still only a beginner too, so if someone more experienced sees something off in my advice please correct me before i drag other people into bad habits
an update from me, not sure on the tubes on her shoulders, but i feel ive got to fill up that space around her neck a bit since even though i want to show off a slighly elongated neck that space is looking weird to me with nothing but the chair in the background.

Added background, I kinda wanted to build up a story about my sith in the image. She's Darth Juuno the Cloner, she clones people in the senate and then kills the originals and disposes of them, all in order to have her own intressts taken care of.
