Outpost on Arvala-7
The Inktober prompt for the middle of the month reminds me of the introductory chapter of The Mandalorian. On his quest for “The Asset,” Mando is guided by Kuiil, the Ugnaught to an outpost on the planet Arvala-7. Guarded by Nikto warriors, this outpost serves as the climactic setting of the episode. It is here that the Mandalorian encounters an assassin droid named IG-11. The Nikto are no match for the deadly skills of IG, that is until they bring out the heavy artillery. Therefore, IG-11 represents today’s prompt.
Ink Wash Phase
I liked the result of my last post of the Armorer in which I utilized the ink wash technique over the ink drawing. And, similar to the many well-known artists of the past who have various phases reflected in their art, I chose to stick with that approach to IG-11.
Kendall Schroeder saw the original Star Wars in a small theater in the summer of his 10th birthday and immediately fell in love with the Far Away Galaxy. Pretending to be either Jedi Luke Skywalker or Colonel Steve Austin, the Six Million Dollar Man, Kendall always believed he had special powers. Maybe that’s why he truly believes there is good in all people. And, he will stop at nothing to help rid the world of evil. When Kendall is not creating art, he is leading educators as the head of an online school. Kendall lives in West Michigan with his wife and two kids.
