Merry Sithmas - Darth Maul


I thought I was super-clever when I thought of "Merry Sithmas".  Well, as usual, it turns out most people are much quicker than yours truly, as it was already a thing, of sorts.  Ah, well... nonetheless, this image jumped in my head, just in time for the holidays (or, rather, "holi-daze" as I prefer to call them).  I have a series of these in mind--we'll see if I get 'em done in time!

STEP ONE:  Here are the digital pencils, done on a 900px x 1260px canvas.

STEP TWO: Since I knew the facial pattern would need to be identical on both sides, I inked half of Darth Maul's face, then copied and flipped it horizontally.  I also left off the horns, since I was going to be replacing them with Christmas Tree lights.

STEP THREE: I created a MULTIPLY Layer to begin colorizing the drawing, and then added the lettering.

Done digitally in Photoshop.
