Darth Zeram Revamped by DavidFernandezArt Darth Zeram Revamped by DavidFernandezArt
READ THE DESCRIPTION FIRST!!!

I thought it was about time for Zeram to get a change in design.

His previous design (featured here) was one that I liked a lot, but I usually get tired of one design and I look to see how I can improve it. The first design looked a lot like a regular Jedi outfit, but brown and red.

NOW, Ive decided to overhaul his outfit and give him a serious make over. I took a lot of inspiration from Hyung Tae Kim and gave Zeram a more badass look.


His lightsaber is a personal favortie touch of mine.

ITS NOT USED AS A WHIP, OR LIKE NUNCHAKU!! Zeram's saber is actually extendable. He uses it usually like a regular sword, but upon pressing a special release button on the side of the hilt, a special Phrikite weave cable inside the hilt is uncoiled and extended, allowing Zeram to have much greater reach. He usually uses the extended saber as a surprise attack, to catch his opponents off guard, or to kill an enemy from afar. Once the release button is reactivated, the cable is retracted and wound tightly within the bottom of the hilt. The ACTUAL lightsaber itself is the top of the hilt.

Soooooooo there you go! An all new Zeram. I really need to write a story about these guys...


You can view the line art at this [link] .

Enjoy ^^

Cool concept of character and weapon. I'm assuming he uses Force telekinesis to control the saber when it's extended, right? The link doesn't work btw.

Come to think of it, if during a lunge toward his opponent if Zeram get's behind them he could theoretically get the cortosis-wire around his opponent's throat and choke them to death!

Real nice guy.

oh never mind didn't read your the rest of your comment XD. Would you mind if i used it? though i would use it slightly differently but you did give me added ideas, I was thinking of using it something like jackie chan in shanghai noon where he has a rope with a horseshoe on the end.

Thats true, but the thing is, he doesnt have to concentrate and use the force because the lightsaber is attached to a cable. He wont have to waste his force power. And also, the cable is cortosis, so it makes it easier to deactivate his ENEMIES lightsaber while still fighting. Trust me, I put a lot of thought into this.

Another great piece. Great description for the saber design. :jedi: Around the time of KotOR, cortosis was in much greater supply, hence all the cortosis-weave blades. It becomes much more rare by the time of JK2: Outcast. :meditation:

I checked out your before and after--nice improvements! Original--quite ominus appearance, but very cool design! From what I've read/seen, your image before this one is a good "in-between" and this is what he has truly become. Awesome outfit. His hair and the line from his extended lightsaber provide good movement.
