I love Star Wars and I love creature design and I was more than happy with what we got in TFA and R1. However, I feel like Ryan Johnson does not have a lucky hand when it comes to picking designs for his creatures. While many of them are perfectly fine I think that others do not quite fit into the "realistic" fauna of Star Wars. Just look at the comparison of Quiggold and the caretaker below. They are lightyears apart in terms of believability.
To further illustrate my point of view I decided to do a quick photoshop rework of the porgs (female and male variant). While I like the overall idea and silhouette of the porgs they seem to lack believable anatomy and have a stylized appearence which would be more fitting for an animated movie or cartoon.
Is it just me or does anyone else feel like this?
There are so many beautiful planets/locations in Star Wars. I wanted to start a thread where we can all share our favourites. I know it's hard but try to pick just one planet/location. Tell us why and what you admire most about it.
I'll start things off with my favourite place in the whole Galaxy. I know it might not be the most popular choice but we all have our reasons:
Theed is the (human) capital city of the Naboo. I was totally in awe of everything Nabooian the moment I saw Theed in The Phantom Menace. I love the aesthetic feel of the city. The architecture reminds me of Vienna and other old European cities. I always imagined what it would be like to live in Theed.
This particular scene was filmed in Plaza de España, Seville (Spain).
This scene in Villa del Balbianello...
This is an interactive adventure (LOOSELY) set in the Old Republic universe. Anyone familiar with MSPaint Adventures will get the concept. This is not a serious thread, please don’t get mad at me if I put jokes ahead of accuracy.
Users can post commands for controllable characters. There are no rules to this game, and users can suggest anything they want. Be aware, however, that I cannot respond to every command and which commands get picked are based entirely upon the good humor and plot potential therein.
