Moments Before the Light Color by Fastfood Moments Before the Light Color by Fastfood
This a comission for a bud :iconc2usaf2004: It is supposed to take place in that exact second before the grey jedi's lightsabers are drawn. One is to be purple, the other silver.

The original lines are here> [link]

I promise, this will be the last Star Wars pic, hell, the last colored pic you'll see for a while.

Beautiful work! I love the intensity and the fact that the face is hidding in shadows with the mist all around reflecting the blow of the lightsabers as they begin to activate. Really intense and captivating! I look at this and it completely inspires me to sit down and write a story about this person and what is happening in this picture. Also because you arent really sure if this is light or dark side, he kinda looks like he waivers in that middle ground between.Someone you could maybe trust to help you out in a dangerous situation but also someone you would never forget could take you out in a second!
What do you think?

this is fucking amazing. you got the half-activation perfect, and the shadows really accent the light of the sabers. what is he standing on?
also, the facial expression is kinda deadpan- was that intentional?

Yeah, jedi are all deadpan, plus, it's what was asked for in the commission.

If I were to critique this, I'd say well done, and well drawn. Probably the best I've seen. You can see the initial... I guess you'd call it "fore-glow" clearly, and the character himself is very well shaded and conceived.

Hmmm, the saber in his right hand looks OK, but the other looks like a big tube of radioactive purple lipstick; I'da made both blades just dots for a scene like this.

Lighting and smoke look cool. And yay grey Jedi! Or as one JK2 gaming clan called it- The Dim Side of the Force. Same cookies at the Sith, but no pesky Jedi Order trying to eradicate you...

I love the insinuated motion of the lightsaber beginning to ignite. It can be a challenge to get across the feel of movement from a static image sometimes. Great job.

I will never get tired of your Star Wars pieces, they are quite amazing.

I love this one. I've never seen a piece where the lightsabers are just coming out when ignited.

Nice job!

:wow: Stunning work! His outfit looks fantastic! The background is simple but very cool! Smoke and lights/shadows effects are excellent!
I'm a bit partial (Gray Jedi and my favorite saber colors) but IMO it's one of your best colored works! Great job! :+fav:

Cool. The comment about the foot is pretty solid, looks a little long. And the thighs could use a little more length to them as well. Killer colors tho...
