Bastila Shan by clc1997 Bastila Shan by clc1997
Bastila Shan from Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic.
I think this is one of my best pictures. It was quite difficult, but worth it.
I think I could have made the background much better, but the file was getting too big, and my ancient computer could not handle more than a few layers at this size.
I made her lightsaber blue because yellow highlights would not show up well on her suit. Also, fun fact: blue lightsabers are the best.

Since I tried really hard on this, please leave a comment, and please don't steal this picture.

Hmm, she's showing an interesting mix of serenity and haughtiness.
You did very well on the detail work here :hug:

She's awesome! Great posture and the shadowing is cool! The lightsaber casts light in her like that, it's quite realistic. And the face is pretty too.

In Photoshop there's a really easy way to make the lightsaber - just placing the blade on a separate layer and making the layer have "outer glow". No idea if that works for your program, though.

From all the screenshots you post, I see that gimp and photoshop are very much alike. So drawing the blade mustn't be hard! xD

Very well colored. And other people overdo the lightsaber effect; you got it right.

Thanks. It was a tough decision deciding how much glow to put it.

I think the colours help make her face look not so square.

it looks great and has a awesome likeness to Jennifer hale the voice of Bastila or female Shepard from mass effect

I was aiming for Jennifer Connelly, but Hale is good too. And probably way more appropriate.
