Sith Lord Darth Caedus by saith100 Sith Lord Darth Caedus by saith100
After the apprentice (see Tahiri Veila : Sith Apprentice) here is the Sith Lord Darth Caedus (a.k.a.a Jacen Solo).

For this interpretation I used a few canon images as references :
- The Japanese covers featuring Jacen for the face, especially the one from The joiner king since he's depicted there as an adult.
- Various Caedus interpretation for the costume (in particular the one from the essential atlas)

I also got inspired by falcon fan's interpretation of Caedus, for some added details.

I hope the result is realistic enough and fits the way you'de like to see Caedus being interpreted.

As always, this is perfectible, and probably has many flows I haven't noticed yet. So don't hesitate to give full critique, good or bad ;)

That oddly enough kind of reminds me of my cousin o.0

Nice. I like Caedus

No offense, but... he looks very much like his uncle. Which is to say, kinda whiny and not-so-threatening. This is probably more a flaw of the character than your art, which is brilliant.

He looks like he's pouting! :D

I agree that the positioning of the head in relation to the shoulders seems a bit forced. (Although, I couldn't do any better than what you've already done.) Besides that, I'm really impressed with tha picture overall. I love his gauntlets, breastplate, and cloak. You made a lot with so little. Awesome job.

i've looked it up... i'd say it's a good likeness.

One of the best pictures of Caedus I've seen -- very well done. I think the only criticism I would offer is that he looks rather hunched, and he could have perhaps done with being broader in the shoulders.

But, overall it's awesome. :)

I saw this and at first I thought you'd taken a picture . . . It's AMAZING!

This is really good! He looks very much like Jacen. And I love the costume!

Since you asked for critique... I think his head might be at slightly the wrong angle. While his shoulders and torso are sloping "down" away from the camera, his head is sloping "up" - does that make sense? I think you might have to turn his head a little bit. At the moment it looks like he is hunching the shoulder that's closer to the viewer. His head doesn't quite look like it's comfortably attached to his body. But you ought to be able to fix that fairly easily.

Overall though, I would say brilliant work. I can really see Caedus looking exactly like this. Great job!

Yeah, I figured there was something wrong with the pose but couldn't figure it out. Thanks a lot for pointing out the problem. I will change it when I get the motivation, I'm always more motivated to work on new stuff than to touch up something already posted (see all the never finished WIPs from my gallery ?). This one does need perfection IMO
SvenjaLiv Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2011  Professional General Artist
No problem, I hope it helps and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished piece! You definitely need to finish it. It's so promising!!

Go Caedus!
FalconFan Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2010
Wow...this strikes me as one of the moments just before he does something really slamming an officer against a bulkhead without ever touching them, for example... The expression is perfect--glowering, malevolent. The costuming is PERFECT--and just how I always imagined it, too--so very much like Vader's... **shudders** It's an interesting contrast, to have him standing in a nearly white corridor, clothed so utterly in darkness as he is...eyes glowing... A fabulous rendering of Caedus. :nod:

:wow: :love: He very beautiful, I like your interpretation of Darth Caedus, he ressembles a lot, his face, his clothes and also in the japanese covers, It's very realistic (details, clothes...) It's ressembles a photo. Wonderful!
The pose is very awesome and his expression. I like his hair and also the background.
Your art is very wonderful :)

Amazing work
Ryua Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
That's awesome! He looks a little bit pouty, which I think is a pretty typical Sith trait.

Omg this is soooooo awesome!! :omg: Great job
cptmeatman Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
He looks a little bit constipated but but overall this is beyond fantastic.
xyz-dbz Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2010

hexterah Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
This is absolutely amazing! :D I want to sit here and pick apart the reasons why it works so perfectly but there's too many to go through~
