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

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

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.

Wow!! Love the non-traditional Mandalorian look (most Mando's don't carry swords), but it's awesome!!

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.

Nice work!
This scimitar of his is quite nice tool for Mandalorian, such as all the other 'cutting tools' he sports.
Also, it's a bit extraordinary to remove this antenna-like rangefinder from Mandalorian helmet, but it does nice on this picture. He's quite impressive...

But don't You think, that kyramud on chest is somewhat strange? I mean, why do the assassin would need such writing on his armor?I know, that policemen or SWATguys have proper writings on their suits, but for me, the assassin is somewhat... specific occupation.
Well, it's quite obvious, from the way Gladus is dressed, that he's Mandalorian, and Mando`ade aren't fruitsellers, but, in my opinion, this whole 'Assassin' writing is a little bit to ostentatious.

As for your point with kyramud... it's more of a little in-joke of mine, and I doubt too many of the guys who face him are able to read Mandalorian font and the language...^^

Besides, it can also mean "death", if you remove the last two letters (which are hard to be seen, anyway).

Wow, this is amazing work, both in lines and coloration. I have to confess that he looks a bit like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, but it's still great. Is he, by chance, a short-distance scout? I assume that only because most Mandalorians favor progectile or lazer weapons as opposed to physical blades. A fair amount of mercenary Mandalorians use a well-balanced combination of the two.

Wow, I don't usually rant like that. Sorry.

As for his specialty with blades... it's best you read my fanfics, if you're interested in more. ;) (see link in my sig, and please give me some feedback (via note, maybe) what you think of it)

The next chance I get, I'll read all of it. I'm on vacation in Virginia, just rolled into Nate's house from going to Casino Royale with some buddies, tomorrow I'm going to West Virginia, and the next day is paintball. So, once I get time, I will.

You're welcome. Lol.

Gotta love the green/black color scheme (considering that my mandalorian has the same colors) The "assasin" written on the armor is a nice touch.
