A while back I did some portraits of characters for the Star Wars: The Old Republic website. I learned a lot doing them. I had varied successes and failures as I blasted through them all. I took a few photos here and there for some very rudimentary pose reference to save time, but most of the time just invented poses. I really wish I’d taken some photos for the sake of lighting reference. Getting those forms to turn and have skin feel stylized but somewhat real was really tough with invented lighting. That said here are some of my favorites.
