Darth Vice by DavidFernandezArt Darth Vice by DavidFernandezArt
READ THE DESCRIPTION!!!

:icon0pandoras0tear0:'s character, Darth Vice.

Please be advised, that the character AND character DESIGN is all ~0Pandoras0tear0's. I DIDNT make up the outfit, the lightsabers, OR the character, so all the kudos to the outfit goes to her. All I did was draw the picture.

Aaaanyways, like I said, this is Darth Vice, the outcome of when Elw-Ma Nacohh (Pan's Jedi) turns to the Dark Side. Shes the dark little devil on Darth Zerams shoulder that he cant seem to get enough of.. or even GET AWAY from. Shes evil in a very subtle way, like Lady Vaako from "Chronicles of Riddick", or Gabriel from "Constantine".

What I like about Vice, beside her kick ass costume, is her negative energy lightsabers. She uses a special crystal as well as a negative charged power cell that emits a black bladed saber with an inverted energy glow. These sabers are stronger than regular lightsabers, and emit a more focused and destructive blade.

NOW, DONT COMMENT ON THIS IMAGE SAYING HOW LIGHTSABERS LIKE THAT COULDNT EXIST! ITS STAR WARS PEOPLE, NONE OF IT EXISTS, ESPECIALLY LIGHTSABERS, SO THERES NO REASON WHY SHE CANT MAKE A SABER LIKE THIS!

Anyway, this is for you ~0Pandoras0tear0. I hope you like it, and I hope its able to cheer up your day at least a little.

Enjoy.

Wow, thats so cool! I do love the lightsabers, (who cares if its not possible to have a sword made of darkness, since when is a sword made of light any more plausable?), you did a very good job of them, they sort of complete the whole picture.

I really like this piece. The sleek look of both her flowing robes and the curved-hilt sabers makes for a very interesting drawing.

I love the black sabers. I never quite knew how to draw them until i saw how you did it. I tried to my own the same way you did it. Thankx for the inspiration...

I've always had a problem with black lightsabers. Not because they are immpossible (It's fiction, I can roll with it), but because the blades have never been aesthetically pleasing. Usually an awesome character design is ruined by adding the ugliest lightsaber in all of creation to it.

Not so, here. For the first time, I see black lightsabers as capable of the same beauty as any other. It probably helps that there is a dark background and a dark character to help tie the whole thing into the image, but thank you for showing me that it could actually be done in an eye-pleasing way. For the record, the one in TFU does not look like these. These are much, much better.

I also love the economy of design that the top of her outfit has. She has an interesting jagged hair cup, too. The hole over her ass helps to remind us that she is incredibly sexy, but, I sometimes wonder if her angry expression is because a cold breeze just blew through.

The bottom of the outfit is well detailed, but dull compared to the rest. It helps draw the eye away from that corner, but I'm sad to find that there isn't much reward if I fight the urge and examine the gown.

Probably my favorite detail is the hair blades. They remind me of chopsticks in an Asian hair bun, but they also remind me of tribal feathers. It gives her this kind of savage secretary look that really helps sell the character.

Thumbs up.

You're a fuckup.
Tell me, how it's possible to make a black LIGHTsaber?
Black colour is black because it draws all the light around, aye? Then if you wanted to make sth like dark Lightsaber it cannot make A WHITE GLOW AROUND IT!
I propose to make it look shadowy, diffused, maybe wavy. That should do the trick.

And don't tell me that "It's star wars and something like this may be real in this world". Nope, it cannot! Star Wars Physics are same as in our world.

Goes to favs, anyway.

> Star Wars Physics are same as in our world.

Star Wars is Science Fantasy - Their technology just works. It's Star Trek which tries to explain everything according to our own limited understanding of science.

Ergo, with Star Wars you can make things look cool without having to worry about whether we'd be able to make one for real.

Please don't suck all the creativity out of the Star Wars Universe and the artists that do it justice to satisfy your own need for realism in a fantastical setting... It's foolish and makes you look petty. I would use your own derogatory term, but it's offensive and doesn't belong in a forum for artists and art-fans who are supposed to be supportive of one-another...

And if you read closely, at no point did I say it was black LIGHT. Its black energy, which can mean a NUMBER of things, so read the description before you call someone a fuckup, douche bag.

Firstly, You've said that it's Negative energy LIGHTSABER, not just SABER. That's one particular thing, but how important!
Secondly, Yeah, I've seen that TFU Black-saber Shit. It only shows, how... ekhm... unwise designers were.
Ayway, their mistakes should not be copied by anybody. "3rd squadron, I repeat! There's no such thing like black light!" (BTW, Negative Energy also doesn't shine)

1st: If physics is the same there, then why do lasers move slowly? Why is there sound in space? And how is it that ships like the ones the have are able to turn the way they do without gyroscopic spinning movement or maneuvering thrusters placed all around the craft?

2nd: Black light may not exist, but extremely dark grey light does. Find an HDTV. Turn it on, and switch it to an unoccupied channel (or any black screen). Turn out the lights and look around the room. Notice how light is still cast?

3rd: Lightsabers are not real. The physics behind them are not real. The theory behind them has never been achieved. Do not pretend that you know so much about how they work to claim these as impossible.

You shouldn't try that asshole-nerd thing if you aren't actually smart enough to know what you're talking about.

Wow, thanks for the positive words. Dude, like I said, a LOT of the Star Wars technology is impossible, so just go with it. Who cares if it isnt possible? Thats why its fun dude.

And besides, they thought it was cool enough to put it in a VERY popular Star Wars game (the force unleashed). Are you going to gripe to LucasArts as well?

Holeh JEEZ!

Amazing! I love it sooo much! She is perfect to be a Sith, and the negative energy blades are BRILLIANT! Of course, they DO exist, but the crystals are so rare that if you find it you might sell it instead. Background and lighting shock me, delicious concept of Vice, and nice coloring. The bg definitely reminds me of a Mustafar/Muscave mix.

OMG OMG OMG OMG Once more I have to say BRILLIANT!

I'm sorry, I forgot to add one last thing: Although everything works amazingly, her eyes do not. I have no idea how far you intended her to be deep into the dark side, but if she is very far, you might want to change her eyes to yellow/gold with a slight hint of desaturation and little sparkles, sort of like a starburst (you can find more info of this in google) I know that that is how Sith's eyes are colored, even Vader's are that color, both in Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

Just a little tip :D

I was wanting to go for the haunting predator grey/blue kind of eyes... buuut its hard to do that without having a closeup of her face. Plus I also was going for is that you cant tell that shes sith until you notice that you can't breath.

I am a massive star wars fan (as you might be able to tell) and will try to go through all your stuff. I love how you go into so much detail I mean I am no artist but this looks awesome :) keep it up

WOW! I really love that picture, it's just awesome.

The lightning and the oufit are great! Very, very Star Wars-ish. Absolute epic background and the character is very sexy!

Star Wars definitely needs black Lightsabers in official canon! And i'm saying that as an hardcore Star Wars Fan, so shoo-hoo to everyone who's saying, that black Lightsaber can't exist. This brilliant drawing is showing how awesome a black Lightsaber can be. I really like how you've done them!

Just... wow.

I really wish i could afford a printing, i would buy it immediately. Maybe later!

Thank you for drawing this picture! :)
