Ahsoka Tano


My daughter's favorite Jedi, as well as something I put together for a friend. The spunky padawan Miss Ahsoka Tano...

I played with a different rendering method for colors this time. I did the flats, then copied that layer twice, set the original flats layer as the dark shadows, made the medium layer more of the local colors and left them at a medium value, then a light blue tinted layer from her force power. I intentionally didn't show and color casting from her lightsaber onto her to stay true to the movies! Hahaha. (really just lazy.)

The Ahsoka Tano character is trademarked and owned by Lucasfilm.

It's not a very Christmas-y image I know, but nonetheless, I wish you all a happy holiday season, and a Merry Christmas!

Fantastic work Nate. What a lucky daughter to have a such a talented Dad! :D

Although Im not sure I follow your meaning when you say that you duplicated the flats layer for your rendering technique...

I like the wispy effect around the hand. Very cool!
