Taris Cop

So, a while back before I got the script for KOTOR #3, I knew I had to come up with a design for a Taris Patrol Officers. I knew Zayne was going to run into these guys at some point. I spent some time and came up with this guy (nearly all of the characters in the comic are new so it's nothing out of the ordinary that I had to create him). Both Mike Atiyeh and I were so psyched by how he turned out. We couldn't wait to have a bunch of these guys running around-- they were kind of like the Clone Troopers in EP III, where they had different costume variations for the different planets they occupied. Mike came up with the idea to give them different colors and I thought about coming up with new helmets and gear-- it was going to be so much fun. Then the script came for #3-- great script from John Jackson Miller (as usual) but there is often so much story we are covering in each issue that it's hard to get to everything. Also, we introduced two new characters (Camper and Jarael) in #3. In the end there is only so much time and room to show all these characters. So I guess the message here is to not fall in love with your drawings... too much.

Anyway, these Taris Patrol guys appear in two tiny panels-- don't blink or you'll miss 'em.

Thanks Shellie. I managed to sneak one of these guys into issue #6. He doesn't have a major role-- he'll actually be in the background, but it was still fun to draw them again.
