Nicely done! I especially like the use of the concept rebels and the Sith grunts!

Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed! This isn't so much a new series, as a new miniseries within Will of the Force. Its where I always planned to go with the series, but needed to set up the stuff from the first two issues. Thanks again!!!

I don't know anything about the Knights of the Old Republic, except the names of some of the characters (because I bought the cool-looking figures that were based on them!)

So I don't know how much you might be following the narrative laid out in the games and how much of this is original.

However, this was all "new" to me, so I really dug the story. I enjoyed your other "Will of the Force" chapters, but was slightly disappointed that they were not original stories, which you have done so very well in the past. (they were beautifully show and lyrically composed, but largely went over familiar ground from the films.)

So, to me, I really enjoyed seeing something I wasn't familiar with at all.

You have some great visuals here, excellent compositing of the figures with the digital backdrops. However, that leads to my one complaint, which is that the framing and composition of the shots is almost the same in every frame. Basically a medium shot of the figure (or figures). There isn't a lot of visual variety here, no long shots or wide shots. Very few actual close ups.

I would experiment with trying different styles. I am very bad with photocompositing and digital effects myself. It is much easier to make things look realistic by showing a character from the waist up with a digital backdrop, as you have done, than in trying to convincingly "place" a character in 3 dimensions. Hence the no long shots of characters.

Still, the sameness of the visuals does become a little distracting after a while.

But that is my only complaint in what is otherwise a very nicely written and visually lovely story. Hope to see more chapters soon!



p.s. - what did you use for the Sith troopers?

(amusing use of a Dalek, btw!)

Oh, my only other very small nitpick - the use of the Prince of Persia head. The skin tone doesn't quite match the neck on the original figure, which was a bit noticeable. ;)

Thanks for the excellent feedback Lance! I have immense love for the KOTOR games (you need to go play them!), so I'll be staying true to the awesome feel of them, while adapting the story to make it my own.

Glad you noticed the Dalek, I thought he would work nicely for a predecessor to our beloved R2 units! The Sith Troopers are made using a custom casted head and the Clone Trooper Training Armor.

The length of shots can be a little tricky, not only with the backdrop, but also trying to convey the intended emotion/information. The Prince of Persia head was a pain to attach to that body and I noticed the skin tones weren't perfectly matched, but I was over the project by then :lol:

Hoping to have the next chapter or two this summer, but I've got a lot going on! Thanks again!!!
