Premonition by solarom Premonition by solarom
Guess what, KotOR fanart again. Visas Marr, as promised to ~SpectorKnight. Check out his gallery, his SW micros are amazing!

As with most of my pics, this one started small, then got out of hand. I redid it the total of five times, I think. A portrait at first, then a down to waist portrait, then added an abstract background, then full figure with the same background, then - this.

***

Early in the morning, on the day of the Conclave on Katarr, Visas tries to find her center, meditating somewhere outside in the fields. Despite the comfort of solitude and the quiet beauty of the dawn, she feels restless. Her second sight usually allows her to feel disturbances in the Force, but this time, when Visas tries to reach and find the source of her unease, she finds that eerie, lingering silence, a void, like a hole in the Force that has no emotions, no color or shape. There's just... nothing.

***

Photoshop CS3 + tablet. Even if my life depended on it, I couldn't tell you how long it took me. Long.

I altered her "official" outfit a little bit. There's something about leather straps that makes me completely nuts. Oh, maybe it's my fetish! I always wanted to have one, he-he.

Her pendant is based on Angel Ring by Alchemy Gothic. Take a look at the original here. Beautiful, isn't it? Hopefully, I'll get it this month.

Some 50% close-ups can be found here.

***

Special thanks go to:

~Ubershinysheep for his awesome Flock of Birds brush set. Used for birds, unbelievable as it may sound.

~Imaliea for her beautiful Water Reflection Brushes. Those I used to create a snakeskin-ish pattern on Visas's dress. Ironically ~Imaliea also has a great Silky Scale Brushes, but I found that the other one works better for this image.

Oh--how sad. Visas has to be one of my favorite KotOR characters. I really like the mixtures of softness and tension here. :) Her expression is pefrect.

I love this, no wonder it took so long! When I first looked at this, I noticed how the sky down to the grass went from Peaceful to a choking(This may not be the right word but it fits to me xD) dark and void feeling. I'm not sure if that was the intention but I love it anyways :3 Another thing I really wanna say is I love the outfit. *envyenvyenvy*
Beautiful job, and for all that work you created something amazing :3!

Thank you so much, this is a lovely compliment, and you're right, I wanted to imbue some gradual light-to-dark feeling. :D

As for the outfit, I think the wish to materialize the clothes I paint is on my top ten list, ha-ha.

Oh, and thanks for the :+fav:, honey.

Oh, such a sweet comment, thank you so much! :D I did go for a rather cold, restless mood here, so I guess mission accomplished.

Thank you, your opinion means a lot.

By the way, do you by any chance have a crazy-Revan comic coming up? I really miss those.

Wow! This is just gorgeous! The background and Visas alike. I love the outfit you designed for her. I may need to try doing a micro of her wearing this. :)

I will soon, sorry for lack of feedback. :( Too busy with work and shuffling through a hundred entries in my watch-list. I really should clean it up a bit.
