Arkanian Female by artbytravis Arkanian Female by artbytravis
Originally posted at SWAG, I put this character into an environment. Originally, she was supposed to be a sketch for another character I was playing, but I wound up changing the design. I was left with this sketch, which I liked, so I turned her into an Arkanian when I colored her.

Is she modeled after Platt O'Keefe?  That looks like the same character and pose from an old WEG Star Wars RPG book cover.

I don't know who that is or what WEG stands for. As I said in the description, this wasn't even supposed to be an Arkanian character originally. She was supposed to be human with brown hair, but when I went to color her it just didn't seem very interesting. So I changed her to an Arkanian because it seemed more fun. Whatever similarities there might be between this and whatever image you're talking about are coincidental.

Ah...ok WEG by the way stands for West End Games.  They did the first Star Wars RPG.

The similarities are striking.  Here's an official piece of art of the character I'm thinking of.  Mostly in the outfit.

Your pictures are so amazing! They're realistic without going overboard, giving leeway for fun, cartoony dynamic poses and design (her hair, for example), and the coloring is amazing. I can't wait to see more of your material!

Thanks for the kind feedback! I come from a comic book background, so the pieces I do tend to have that influence. I'm trying to move more and more into a painterly style, though, and get a way from line. That, and I'm trying to work more on backgrounds because I'm realizing how much an environment helps to set a mood and to tell something about the character.

Glad you like it!

Very cool. Good art. Arkanians look so human that I can't comment on anatomy except to say that it looks fine to human standards. Good 3-D shading.

Thanks! Regarding the anatomy, someone at SWAG commented on the original version that Arkanians only have three fingers, so I fixed that for this version. So hopefully she is now anatomically correct...lol.
