Jedi Knight Exemplar by jackieocean Jedi Knight Exemplar by jackieocean
Obi-Wan is my favorite part of the prequels. Prequel Obi-Wan is pretty much tied with Han Solo as my favorite Star Wars character.

I didn't want this to be a super polished portrait piece, so I kept the coloring for this relatively simple. The pencil work was done on bristol board and all of the coloring was done in Photoshop with my tablet. I liked the coloring that I had tried for my Clark Kent picture, so I thought I'd give it a shot with this one, too. I'm pleased with the way this turned out. :)

From December of 2006.

This is spectacular! I agree, Obi-wan is the best Prequel trilogy character!

Obi-wan and Ha Solo are your favs too! XD I love the facial detail on this, the beard and eyes most of all!

I just think that Obi-wan is the best of the best of who Jedi's should be. His heartbreaking but heroic behavior during the final lightsaber battle in ROTS he had me in tears. :-) This drawing captures him really well. I really enjoyed the drawing of Luke too.

Obi-wan and Han are my favourites as well! It's the headstrong rebel in them that I love. Every story needs characters like that, who go off the beaten track and forge their own paths.

Star Wars fannishness aside, this is a remarkable likeness! The simpler colouring really works I think, and somehow seems to do the character more justice than a really polished piece would (to me, at least).

Well done! =)

Thanks! :thanks: You have excellent taste in favorite characters. The coloring on this was kind of an experiment, but I've since used this technique on other pictures and it seems to work very well.
