Gladus Tite - Mandalorian by CorranFett Gladus Tite - Mandalorian by CorranFett
FULL VIEW PLEASE


Alright, here are the colors for this piece: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/42104393/

EDIT (as of 14-03-07): I updated the image with a background and some minor changes in shading. It should look more dynamic now, overall.

The character Gladus Tite is from my Star Wars fanfiction Pariah and also appears in another one, a WIP, When Few Stood Against Many.

Gladus Tite is a coldblooded Mandalorian ex-outlaw and condemned criminal, murderer and assassin, wanted for death on lots and lots of planets in the galaxy, and has never been too much showing off his Mandalorian heritage. But as the Yuuzhan Vong started attacking the galaxy, one of his former archenemies, the Mandalorian soldier and ex-Police officer Ronan Barec (see my other deviations, as well as my fanfiction Honor Guard for that), recruited him to join the Mandalorian Protectors and make a stand against the extragalactic invaders. Gladus is most skilled in sword- and melee combat, and his armor just shows that off.


If you are interested, here are the three steps of the image:
1) Sketch by the amazing DarthKuk, I'm indebted to him for that
2) My inks
3) My colors
4) My final colors and background (14-03-07)

Pencils by :iconkuk-man: *Kuk-Man
Inks & Colors by me, :iconcorranfett: ~CorranFett

Hello, I was wondering if it would be alright if I used this image as my avatar in a roleplay game call Star Wars Combine. Also, with your permission of course, if I could change the colors and remove the cape in order to suit my character better.
Can't wait to hear from you, love your work :).

Whoa... 0.O cool. Love the armor, and the story behind him is even better. Are his swords made out of beskar? I couldn't find a picture of one...

Excellent pose, I really love the dynamic high energy feel it gives and combined with the gritty and dark colours and textures it makes for a very cool image My only crit (I know it's not your sketch but I thought i'd point it out) is that the hand holding the sword should be a little larger due to foreshortening, i looks larger than the free hand which is further back in the image. As I said it's not your sketch but it's something I thought i'd point out :) hope you don't mind.

Glad you like my colors, it's still one of my personal favorites despite being one of my oldest.

As for the foreshadowing on his hand, I can definitely see your point, but it doesn't look like a real biggie to me. I'll point Kuk-Man to it, tho. ;)

You must be put to death at once. No human being should be able to draw pictures that flipping awesome. I am of the opinion you used witchcraft, and, assuming you weight as much as a duck, should be burned immediately.

That's freakin awesome man! Yeah, he kind of looks like a TMNT, but there are just some many details, and he does have a pistol for backup.....

I'm going to check out the rest of your gallery when I have time......

As for coloring... I'm pretty busy with all kinds of stuff currently, but I might actually give your female Mando (the one that's supposed to portray you) a try, some day.

Gads--the finish is awesome, Corran! :clap: :clap: A great collaboration between you and DarthKuk, without doubt! Superb choice for b/g colors--very hot and roiling, as though a fire is raging somewhere close, and that's the reason for the swirling of the cape... Awesome, all around! :D

CorranFett Featured By Owner May 17, 2007
Thank you. :D

I usually think I'm not too good at backgrounds, so I just started off with a brown layer and used Burn and Dodge tools to apply some shading and make it look a little bit like clouds. And then I added a simple stone-like plateau where Gladus is now standing on, but which you can hardly make out in this dark version.

And good call actually about the swirling kama... that was unintentional, but it does indeed work very well.

Thanks again, and for the fav, too. :)

It's sooo pretty...I like the contrast, but the armor's already dark; maybe a lighter background? I really faint blood-red would be cool, I think...

It's supposed to be that dark. You want a lighter version, check the former colors. ;)

Dunno what you mean with "faint blood-red", btw.

CorranFett Featured By Owner May 14, 2007
Well, thanks for your second comment. :D (you already know this deviation, I just added a background ;) )

It's no way non-traditional, though. Each Mando has his own profession, his own expertise, some are focused on ranged, others on blaster, and yet others on close and melee combat. Gladus is simple focused on swordfighting, something numerous Mandalorians of old (see KotOR) used to do.

Mandalorian with katana, hmm gotta love that.
I hate the Yuuzahn Vong ideas, if you got some idea to polish my elseworld star wars ( you read my mini story right ? ) i'll be glad to read or add on my story, Force Chronicle.
