Knights of the old republic 12 by HOON Knights of the old republic 12 by HOON
12 has always been my favorite number.

Star wars: Knights of the old republic, issue 12 cover.

the alien pirate attempts at one of those Hollywood style "i shoot the elaborate light fixture, and you get crushed!" but the hero always knows better.

TOOLS: Photoshop CS, Painter, and wacom intuos3

special thanks to stacy, :iconjujika: for smoothing out some of the rough renderings on the characters.
also, this is an alternative version of the cover, where i felt bg was better polished, but due to its storyline, bg had to be revised. this version felt much better in my opinion tho.

Publication Date: January 10, 2007

such an odd number, isn't it? And of course...amazing picture. I love that he has a yellow light saber. i got it that they were fighting, but I thought maybe the guy had knocked the gun upward or something.

It is indeed very nice, but somehow I fail to see the story in the picture. I had to read your description to realize what was going on - at first I thought the two guys were fighting side by side against some unseen enemy attacking from above. Mainly because the pirate is totally focused on shooting upwards, and the Jedi is looking completely past him (and seems to be close enough to the pirate to just chop him in two). They seem to be fighting something else than each other.

Still a beautiful picture though.

it almost feels like a joke, where the jedi's evasion almost spells "What now?" for the alien thug :laughing:

I like how you did the saber lighting, very accurate, and I also like how you give every picture a lot of momentum, the action is always there.

great job...
