    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I always thought that poor Jar Jar deserved better, so i made up this story where he is bitter after the events in ROTS, feeling tricked into proposing emergency powers to the chencellor, so he becomes mean & sneaky, always squinting with his eyes, filing down his teeth & cutting his ears into looking dangerous, also he has grown into his "fishmoustache" & his voice has become deeper... In my story he was a clumsy naive child in the movies, but now he has become an adult.

    Also his real name is JARJA RBINKS !!! (JarJar was something Big Boss Nass called him)

    AS long as he has thatd esign, he can never be the character George wanted him to be.

    The color, the eyes, the skin, the shape of the face... everything about JAr Jar is unsettling to the eyes of a child. His design is more comparable to sebulba than anyone else, and he was supposed to be a villain.

    I would go so far as to say he had literal actual brain damage, and since had a medical treatment to have it resolved...

    Do you mean my design, or the original design? This is just for fun, i thought one day, is it possible to make JarJar cool? I have no idea if i succeded & it really doesn´t matter, i just wanted to see what happened if i made him a bountyt hunter :).

    PS. what do you think about his 2 sidekicks??

    The original design, I actually think the original design better fits the context you are putting Jar Jar in.

    Serpentine eyes, spiked parts ofthe eyelid, mottled gross skin, elongated face... just doesnt fit being "goofy sidekick kidfriendly character"

    fair enough, this is just my way of drawing him, it was not easy learning to draw him without looking at photos & this way was easiest & it was not intentional to change anything else but the squinting eyes & the added "moustache" at first, so this is the closest i get drawing on free hand & the spiked eyelid part is in the original design, i just made it black.... The skin is just my style of drawing, did not even try to copy that. !

    but THANK YOU ! (& i really mean Thanks) :) I am happy you shared your opinion, because i have not decided on the final design yet. I have another JarJar design that is completely different & more like the original design (but not as easy to draw) -I can upload it if you want ;) & I actually agree with you: he looks a little to much like sebulba (sebulba) (r2-d2)(sebulba)

    If you are not aware, there isactualyl a gungan mercenary from the old EU.

    http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Kleef

    For him they also addedthe facial tendrils. Which seemsto be the go-to move for making gungans less silly, I guess that Captain Tarpals resonated a bit stronger with the audience (perhaps because he was the first character to show real open disdain for Jar Jar?)

    AH cool, never seen it before :) & i now see that i have gotten the shape of the head totally wrong, it is more a duckbeak on a long neck, my design is more of a horisontal face... HAHAAA, now i see what you meant with: "brain damaged & medical surgery" :D WELL, back to the drawing board, working on the other design now & really liking it, captain tarpals was my inspiration to make JarJar more mature :) the other design is more like him...

    dont worry too much about getting the design accurate... just do your own thing, and dont worry about all the things I am saying. I just like discussing aliens and design because I am a science fiction writer and artist.

    constructive criticism is always good, now i identified why the head looked so odd & off" ,,, the new design is much better & in the end i am just doing this cause its fun so i don´t care if people like it, but i want it to be as accurate as possible, so all tips on that front is welcome, since i am still working on design :)

    & i like discussing aliens & design, so it will be interesting to see what you think about the other completely different design :) (wich i decided to keep now, no matter what) will upload a picture tomorrow

    If you want the best gungan art and depictions, I would recommend "The Wildlife of Star Wars"

    Terryl Whitlatch did the art, and she was absolutely brilliant, I believe she actually did a lot of concept art for The Phantom Menace.... I think she was behind the gungans and Sebulba actually.

    I saw some of her concept art for Jar Jar, and I definitly think that something was lost in translation from art to CGI.

    [​IMG]

    Less serpentine eyes, nose a bit more like you draw... he almost feels more innocent, and seems to have a more... Farnsworht-esque (Futurama) feel to him... the blue coloring around his eyes makes him seem tired too, and somehow makes him look a little more sympathetic perhaps? less thick ears, less pointy parts. Here is another piece of art she did.

    [​IMG]

    Gungans are a fascinating and weird species to study for so many reasons, there is so much about the design that didnt work, but could work... so many little things just... slightly off.

    WOW !!! i REALLY like the red skin design & blue frog eyes, maybe i will draw him like this instead :) if jarjar would have been sweet & innocent, then maybe his clumsiness would´ve been likeable

    I dont know if a good or better design would have redeemed the writing, but it couldnt have hurt too much.

    I kinda like the idea of your grittier design, but blue coloring around the eyes could help even with a gritty design. As I said they make him look a bit tired, and thus more sympathetic...

    and I imagine a JarJar taht has been carryingthe burden of all the things he has done, does not get much sleep.

    i will definitly try other ways of drawing the eyes now :) found this one on the net: [​IMG] it has the potential to be as iconic as mon calamari, the final design lacked the fishy eye-look i think

    That one is also good, tagain it doesnt have the elongated serpentine pupil that made jar jars eyes unsettling.

    The coloring seems almost reminiscent of a south american poison dart frog of some sorts, I dont know if that would have turned out but even that I like more than what we got in the film.

    Cool drawings and funky story my friend yet I think you're a little late on the ''making Jar Jar cool'' department. If all goes as planned, JJ Abrams said he was going to include Jar Jar's bones in Jakku. I think there will be a great disturbance in the Force as millions of souls cry out in sheer joy on Dec 18 and think that nobody can make Binks any cooler than that!

    I love most aquatic races from SW and it really saddens me that Jar Jar was made to be a dork because Gungans are a really cool race and I love their design. I wonder how PM would have worked if instead of an idiot, Jar Jar would have looked exactly the same but would have acted more in the lines of Chewie. Even Boss Nass was made to act goofy when I think he's a very cool looking frog type of alien that barely resembles a Gungan. Gungans could have been great aditions to the SW mythos but saddly just the mention of the name alone instantly brings Jar Jar to mind and make many fans wish they had never existed.
