Asajj Ven­tress: Gal­axy at War

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Artist Tip -

A lesser-known part of the Star Wars uni­verse was a chance to get away from tried stances…

“I’m not up on all of the ex­tended uni­verse Star Wars char­ac­ters, Asajj Ven­tress in­cluded, but it didn’t take long to fig­ure out she’s a pow­er­ful, sin­is­ter char­ac­ter. There’s a fi­nite amount of poses for fig­ures with lightsabers, and I’m tired of most of them. A men­ac­ing fe­male with two glow­ing wands pro­vided me with some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent to play with. I re­ceived feed­back from the Lu­cas team that she needed to be more ag­gres­sive, with “crossed lightsabers and a sneer”. Ref­er­ence pho­tos were shot of my wife hold­ing broom­sticks, “sneer­ing” in her un­der­wear, but I think I’ll keep those pics to my­self!”
