Force Grandmaster by ivo-robotnik Force Grandmaster by ivo-robotnik
Anakin Skywalker™ is © LucasArts.

I spent a while today messing around with different ways of drawing him. I didn't really like how the original 'Jenanakin' looked, face-wise. I also wanted to do a more serious pic of him.

In RPs, my Anakin aspires to try to master both sides of the Force at once, hoping to eventually bring himself to a perfect balance where he's pretty much as at one with the Force as you can be without, like, dying. :p

So, I thought that opposite-colored sabers and opposite-tinted eyes would be a pretty cool look to signify that 'stage.'

In this stage, he'd have complete control over his emotions, but he'd still use them as part of his focus. He allows the Light Side to flow through and guide him while augmenting it perfectly with his own Dark Side inner power and emotions. It's pretty awesome to imagine, really. XD

...and yes, he's wearing a closed AOTFW trenchcoat and not some huge dramatic cloak. Sue me. I was going to have the trench open and a little more flowy at first but the positioning of his arms made that difficult. :p Plus, a cloak flowing off to one side like they usually do would kinda disrupt the 'symmetry' of the whole thing.

This is a great concept of Anakin, I agree. Also, the AOTFW-style trench kinda makes more sense than that Jedi/Sith cape they have, since the latter would get in the way during combat. I remember seeing them just throw the capes away during the PT, and not having one at all makes more sense than just discarding it.

I like it! Though to be honest, when I saw the title in my devwatch box, I thought you had drawn Ivo as a Jedi. But either way, it's awesomeness!

Whoa. The coloring is -awesome-. The lightsabers are really well done, and the coloring and shading is super-spiffy. The clothing is great also. Very nice work!

X3 mnn. the lighting really sticks out to me. It looks great too. =3 makes the light sabers seem even more shiny.

The expression is indeed very intense, goes well with the whole balance of the picture =3
