Bidu-chan by Pokefreak - Colored by RBL-M1A2Tanker Bidu-chan by Pokefreak - Colored by RBL-M1A2Tanker
A long awaited coloring job of Jedi Master Bidu-chan, belonging to :iconbidujador: on dART.  It was one of those quick sketch commissions that :iconroggles: had offered way back, and so I took'em up on it.  

If this had been inked, I think it would have been pretty fantastic, but as it was, it was really sharply done.  Honestly, I spent more time working on all the special effects for the saber glow, the spin, and the background stuff than I did coloring her!

I could probably have done the lightsaber spin glow better, but it was my first time trying it.  The idea was that you would see slight lines to indicate the saber was extending as she was jumping out of the fighter, signifying how fast she drew her hilt and deflected those initial shots.  I think I sorta got it.  So I'll have to work on that for the next one.

You can see the original sketch here:

This is a very high rating for me. I'm impressed with the catching the moment. Putting the "foreground" out-of-focus emphasizes the action.

I'm remain amused by the trope where female action figures are bare legged and male's remain fully clothed. I'm assuming that SciFi females are tougher than males.

I just realized that I need 100 words minimum. Ok. Smudging the "shadowing" or erasing it and replacing it with a darker hue would have been more effective. The light sabre is the right contrast. A common error is to make the sabre a light source instead of an energy weapon.
What do you think?
