Khalee Lah by blue-but-beautiful Khalee Lah by blue-but-beautiful
"The battle was a failure. The Jeedai escaped. It would seem that I was infected with the heresy, or the gods would have allowed me to die in glorious battle. My failure can only serve to tarnish my domain. The name of the warmaster, whom you name friend." -- Khalee Lah

Another sketch I have been meaning to upload for a while.

3B, 4B and 9B pencil on lightly grained paper, darkened in photoshop.

The original can be seen in my scraps.

Khalee Lah, the Yuuzhan Vong and all that is star wars are (c) of Yun-Lucas and his glorious empire.
The art however, is mine :p

I think you have, cos you have commented on it on the first page! :rofl:
Thanks again though! Yeah, I don't think I extended the shading for the joins in the horns enough, something to bear in mind for next time!

Wow! That's interesting, I don't think I've seen one with his eyes closed before. XD Really nice as always, so well-defined--the scar looks fantastic, and of course the markings are interesting and pretty. The horns above the eyes look a little flat...

He is a handsome lad. He does remind me of Cut Rock. Eh?

blue-but-beautiful Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2008  Professional General Artist
Ooh yes I can see the Cut Rock influence there, though it must have been subconscious, because I didn't think about it until you mentioned it now - hehe. I always thought that Zero Wolf and Cut Rock reminded me of Tsavong and Khalee Lah :D
Thanks!

I kept going hmmmmm, while sketching this the whole time, and my poor fiance had to ask "what?" and I replied "He's so not as hot as his dad" XD "I really didn't need to know that, thanks nenners...thanks a lot" whoooops :blush:

:rofl: Your poor infidel fiance! :XD: And yeah, niceos is a Sars word I kinda stole. We tend to tack "O" on to everything. Ex: My brother's an obnoxi-o, Sars is a craze-o, He's being a Jacen Solo-o... Yeah, the last one doesn't work so well. :p

LOL, that sounds a bit like what my best friend and I used to do - we added "ous" onto the end of everything. So I was Nenous, she was Sadeous XD
He's being a Jacen Solous? ooh that sounds dodgy :blush:

This is really great work. I like the subtle shading that is achieved and the blending looks great. Doing something different and doing it well. You represent the Yuuzhan Vong so well. I am surprised that I haven't seen your work on the cover of a Novel,comic or in the Wookiepedia yet! Great work as always!

Yay Yuuzhies! I am always a bit like that when I open my inbox in the morning and see some YV related mail. XD

Thanks very much btw! This one made a nice change and a nice challenge too, for some reason I have a fixation on his ears lol.

Thanks very much, I can never seem to get that good a contrast in pencil alone, even with the use of pencils as soft as 9B - thank god for photoshop!
Thanks again! :hug:
