Still poking through some of my older stuff, this was just playing around with a slightly more casual getup for Jak. She doesn't adhere to the '100% armour 100% of the time' mentality that some of the die hard Mandalorians hold.
I really like your coloring and shanding on this piece. Good job.
It's always good to see Jak.
Great work as always, Tusserk. :)
Them's some pretty big ear holes on that helmet. Leaves your brain too exposed, if you ask me. But hey... At least you have ears...
"You ain't the first to comment on that, an' more as like won't be the last. I'll say now what I said then... nobody questions folk who fight without a helmet, right, nobody goes about tellin' 'em the risk to their brain. It's only 'cause the helmet is there at all that folk think to poke holes at the... well, holes. But I got different buckets to suit different purposes, 'lek? An' at any given point, I try to pick the right balance between protection an' function. My ears are important, an' some jobs need me able to use 'em properly more 'n I need to worry 'bout risk of concussion. Armour don't make nobody immune to nothin, see, it's just about minimisin' risk without hampering function. Well, that an' the whole solidarity thing, which is half th' reason Mando'ade wear armour, too."
"That's why? AIways thought if you broke dress code, they'd kick you over to Mon Torri to be eaten by glacier slugs... An y'know, come to think of it, I could have ears any time I wanted. Matter a'fact, wonder if I could take these stupid cybernetics just... off? Ur maybe put em somewhere else. Replace em? Maybe call in a favor and have that outlaw tech in Port Nadir hook me up with something more descrete? Better do something soon. Stupid things are starting to make the inside of my skull itch..."
<High-pitched, metallic whine>
"Yeah, well, I'm not known for thinking my decisions through."
Wow, this is one of your best drawings I think. Very nice.
Awf, thanks dude!
