Darth Malak by TereseNielsen Darth Malak by TereseNielsen
Hey, I get to show some more of my "almost" recent art!

This is another Star Wars piece that was done for the Star Wars Miniatures: Knights of the Old Republic Packaging Art

It was painted with acrylic, colored pencil and a little bit of oil to pop those last final details. The size of the original is 8"x17".

Please check out my blog [link] for the behind-the-scenes info. I've included the sketch, reference images and even a little pic of what the miniature looks like.

*** I have archival PRINTS in stock of many of my works. Please feel free to send a note if there is a particular one that interests you.

I liked seeing Darth Malak in the Old Republic era, and he is one of the best villains ever, though I won't say he's better than Darth Vader or Emperor Palpatine. But hey, that's just a matter of perspective and/or opinion. He does remind me a little of the Marvel Comics mutant supervillain Apocalypse, who is one of the X-Men's most powerful antagonists. I only say that because of their faces. But apart from that, your work looks so good!

While he didn't look as buff in the game, this is a very good depiction of him :thumbsup:

He was such a great character in the game. I wish there were more images of him without the collar on though.

It does seem like there's a dearth of images for Darth Malek.
I found very little reference to go on related to his 'look'. Again, they wanted the collar.

Well, in the game there is one sequence where it shows Malak with his back turned and his collar off, while a medic droid is working on his face, then in a fit of frustration Malak turns toward the camera at his Commander and you see his jaw-less face without his collar. It was pretty grim and a great visual, so it would be nice to see a few pieces of him like that.

Beautiful!

As a player of the Knights of the Old Republic PC game, I really appreciate that you've rendered Malak to exude a more menacing edge through the form, colours, and texture...2003's in-game graphics can only do so much ;)

Thank you very much for sharing this gem.

Utterly Amazing... although I think you give Malak too much credit there with his abs and biceps, in the game he seemed much more frail looking.
