Subaltern S'uun Esh by blue-but-beautiful Subaltern S'uun Esh by blue-but-beautiful
Hailing from an up and coming warrior domain, Suun Esh certainly outwardly lives up to the ideal of the consummate warrior. In the crèche of her domain she excelled in the tutelage of basic hand to hand combat as did many, but her strengths lay more in a well honed sense of tactics, countered only by her insatiable lack of patience in certain situations – certainly a bad habit of hers. Devout in her beliefs in the gods, she has been a loyal supporter of Supreme Overlord Shimrra from the moment that word of this promised galaxy reached her ears – steadfast in her convictions, she is not one to be trifled with, nor easily swayed.

Attaining the rank of basic warrior was nothing unusual at the age in which S’uun Esh did. But throughout the Klekkets spent preparing for the invasion of the infidel’s galaxy, she knuckled down and rose rapidly through the ranks enough to achieve the title of Subaltern. While her ambitions still remain, she has yet to prove herself in anything other than basic combat with the infidels – or indeed the Jeedai – a chance she eagerly awaits.

------

S'uun Esh, my Yuuzhan Vong OC that I have been known to occasionally use for cameo in fiction. She is primarily an RP character though and I thought it was time I gave her a face to go with the name.

Hi there fellow Yuzzhie fan ;) Thanks very much for the comment, and for asking. Of course you can use the picture for your RP ^_^ I would be delighted!
I also love to RP, ref pics for the Yuuzhan Vong were so hard to come by, it's one reason I painted so many of my own RP characters, hehe. All I ask is that depending where the image is used, you link back to my page in some way or mention. All the best in your story arc! :D

I don't know how i missed this?! This is one of the best original character designs i've seen!! :wow: Really awesome job on the outfit, you've managed to make her look very fierce and warrior-like but also very feminine at the same time. And despite the fact that she has no nose, she still looks quite appealing lol :D

Thanks very much :D She's one of my faves to play is S'uun 'grrr i'm angry as always' Esh. Good one if you're feeling a bit stressed out ;) "You failed? SACRIFICED!" she's that cut and dry lol. And hey, all the best people don't have noses ;)

very good pic :) I;m interested in Yuuzhan Vong since I read "A Practical Man" by Karen Traviss and soon I will be reading New Jedi Order series.

yes, I liked it very much, there are not only Mandos (which are my favourite fraction [I'm a Mando'ad in my heart :D] ) but I also liked Nom Anor's character :)

Nom Anor is one of those characters you'll either love or hate (or even love to hate), but I'm sure you'll find out why soon enough :D
I'm definitely a Yuuzhan Vong at heart, but the Mandos are a close second.

well, I can tell you then that though it seems strange because of YV's hate of technology, I think of myself as Yuuzhan Mando (after reading A Practical Man I grew very interested in them - because of Nom Anor :D)

blue-but-beautiful Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2008  Professional General Artist
Haha, yes, though Nom Anor is a very unorthodox person as far as Yuuzhan Vong go, he was also one of my faves in the NJO series, he makes quite a name for himself ;)
Tsavong Lah was another notable fanatic too, he's possibly the most consummate of YV in the series besides a couple of others I can think of, but I won't spoil it for you.

Beautiful! We can see so well her attitude and strength--her conviction that she is right in her devotion and loyalty to the Overlord. Wonderful colors--so rich and saturated--and I'm really diggin' the armoring: it's a perfect blend of nasty and attractive, perfect for a female warrior! As always, the tattooing looks terrific--most excellent work!

Oh she's a devout one alright, contrary to recent RP plotlines ;) she has developed from an extra in a fic to have a personality all of her own, so I decided to put a face to the name, glad she comes across this way to you, means I did my job somewhat right :)
Thanks very much for the lovely comments!

Wow, it's been far too long since I've browsed dA... and look, more Vong Art! <YAY!>

You always get my attention with these pics, Blue. The armor looks true enough to be Yuuzhan Vong, and yet beautiful as well. I also like the unusual take on the amphistaff. An all-around fashionable YV! =P

hehe yes i'm still at it, there's more on the way too, i've had a few requests :D Glad you're liking this one, it's making me laugh at the fashion side of things, this was based on the armour of one of the YV mini's, so I suppose they must have had their own sense of fashion in a way :rofl:
I used a new way of colouring the armour this time, saved me a lot of time lol.

Thanks as always for the lovely comments!

The small paragraph beneath the pic is just a bit of her bio from my RP site - I don't know if she will ever appear in any of my fics as anything more than an extra, I haven't really got any plot bunnies gnawing away at my mind with regards to that, but she does have a prominent part to play at the RP as I said :)
Thanks very much btw! :hug:

Thanks :D :hug: The outfit was partially based on the YV mini's you can get for the SW RPG game - I loved the outfit of one of the YV scouts and decided to use it on S'uun Esh next time I sketched her.
She was originally created as an extra for a partial explanation to something in a fan fic I wrote about Mezhan Kwaad and Vua Rapuung - but when I needed to come up with a quick warrior character for and RP, I decided S'uun was as good a candidate as any XD
I can send that fic if you'd like?

Thanks so much! :hug: I was pretty pleased with how the armour turned out, it only took a few moments over the course of a couple of nights, but I love experimenting with new techniques so it wasn't too much of a headache ;)
She's an extra that ended up with a life of her own, that's for sure, and she's such a moody-grooch too lol.

She really is pretty. Tis good to see her outside the RP! Nice fancy-colored amphistaff there...it almost looks like it's got glowy bits--is that intentional?

:iconblue-but-beautiful:
blue-but-beautiful Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2008  Professional General Artist
Thanks! And yes it was completely intentional, glad it shows! They were meant to be a subtle glow, so I didn't use the technique I use on lettering or lightsabers, that made it come out with a horrible glare DX so I stuck to this. :hug:
