ART TRADE: Kota and Apprentice by JoeHoganArt ART TRADE: Kota and Apprentice by JoeHoganArt
My half of the art trade for Sandal Crusader. AND LAST TRADE! All done =)

She asked for Rahm Kota and his apprentice (her creation, not Galen Malek!). Using the source image she gave me of the apprentice, I did the best I could to figure out a scenario to have them together. I put them both in Clone armor, and stuck them in a forest. They're being tracked down by Black Sun, for some reason! I'm actually not sure if her apprentice's story takes place before or after the Clone Wars, so this was a guessed possible scenario!

I tried to link the two together. I replicated the phoenix-looking tattoo on her apprentice's shoulders onto the armor of both Kota and the apprentice. I also tried to keep the color schemes for both, as if they'd dress similarly. They're both wearing similar armor/cloaks. Also, Kota's protecting an injured clone...maybe this is the reason he finds clones inferior to people! ;)

Anyway, I had a lot of fun with this one. I have my own nitpicks but all in all, I really enjoyed this one, especially drawing Kota. Was a blast! I hope she digs!

You can find her inking sweetness here:

Uhh, why there is a clone trooper next to Kota? I thought that he fought with a militia because of his distrust toward clone troopers. And that was mentioned in Force Unleashed, which was released before you finished this painting

Pretty simple explanation, really! There was a time when Kota didn't know he didn't trust them, right? Had to experience them first-hand to make that call! Besides, nothing's to say the Jedi Order didn't assign him troopers at least once whether he liked it or not. It's someone else's fan story so I could be way off the mark, but it seems like a logical scenario to me! :) Kota doesn't look all that happy to me!

His padawan was Falon Gray.

lol Take it easy, that was established first in Battlefront: Elite, right? That game came out in November 2009...this was done in September of that year. And she wrote the original character well before we did the art trade. So Falon Gray wasn't an established character yet. I wasn't doing the piece over after he was. haha

Respectfully disagreed, my friend. I guess I'll be the bigger person and walk away, then. Adios.

Come on, man. Do we really need to be like this. I didn't mean to offend you or whatever, I really...REALLY don't understand what the hell you think I was saying in subtext. You can't respectfully disagree because it isn't opinion. I WAS NOT TRYING TO START SOMETHING!
