Homeworld fanart - Karan S'jet by DeepChrome Homeworld fanart - Karan S'jet by DeepChrome
Like the Taiidan Emperor picture, this was intended as an avatar on the Relicnews.com forum.

I'd actually avatarized it with the S'jet kiith logo for a while before going on a Vaygr bent. (Yes Hiigarans, call me traitor if you want. :P)

It's a picture of the lead character from Homeworld and Homeworld 2 -- Karan S'jet. Plugged-in matriarch of the Kushan, and later Hiigaran, peoples. The epitome of serene female wirehead who leads her people. :D

I based her looks off Natalie Portman, who had her head shaved for V is for Vendetta, and by and far most resembles the HW2 boxart of Karan.

Digitallly painted in Photoshop 7.0 with Aiptek 9 by 11 tablet and pen. Not sure how long this took, but I went through about 6 WIP stages before completion.

Homeworld, Homeworld 2, and all their characters, ships, and whatnot are copyright Relic Entertainment and Vivendi Universal.

If you can afford it, GET ONE.

It's worth its weight in gold even if it's a starter. (I have an Aiptek one, which ain't no Wacom, but it's given me a BIG help with Photoshop stuff.)

I've had mine for 3-4 years. It's great, although I'm now saving up for a Wacom, which is the industry standard. Ask anyone here, and they will say Wacom.

Her chin seems a bit thin, but that's about all that really catches my attention with regard to things to fix. Nice. :) Draw more character art!

Wow....

This... is really really good.

The color tones are a bit rough, making it seem a little jagged, harsh on the eyes, but other than that, I cannot find much else to critique. This is really a very good work of art.

Thank you. Glad you liked it so much.

And yeah, I kept trying to smooth them out. :dead: Drove me a little crazy. I'll be improving my techniques constantly.

These days I favor them for their ships. :XD: Just something about their style feels more real to me than the Hiigarans' nowadays.

And Makaan's voice is just cool. Although he could sound a bit more annoyed when you start losing ships. :giggle:
