Happy Star Wars Day, everyone!!
This was my first piece made entirely using Manga Studio 5 EX, and I really adored using that software. So many great tools. The final product came out so well that even I’m a bit surprised it’s all my own work.
My only small regret was that I didn’t draw Kylo Ren looking more lean bodied. I also know that he didn’t have that cloak on in the scene, but it looked too cool to leave out. If you look at the details, I was sure to show Kylo’s injuries in ways that was easier to see in the movie. The blood at his waist and the darkening at his eyes. Remember that he was pretty messed up by the bowcaster shot when the fight started.
Those who are in the know, will realize I’m looping over the narration of Maz from earlier in the film. It will all make sense when I finish the second page. I can’t wait to get started on page two, which will focus on Rey’s appearance.
I also got a little stylish by using Japanese for the sound effects. I wanted to try something new. Do you like that touch or think it’s too much? I’d like hearing some input.
May the Fourth be with You, always!
