Jedi Benefactor Redesign.
After testing a prototype of the original Jedi concept, we decided to go in a different direction with it. Somehow in practice that design looked more Star Trek than Star Wars, and we wouldn’t want anyone confusing that, so after a couple of weeks of iterations, we’ve come up with a design that is more like a duster. Slightly short of knee length with a high split for the tails [for leg mobility], and the wide sleeve base used in our Harrier design, since that is the most mobile sleeve design we’ve come up with yet.
For the fun of it I’ve mocked up a few color schemes this time. The Apprentice didn’t suit the clients sense of style; he wanted something a little darker overall, hence the Sand Raider pallet of the second image. Last time we posted the Jedi there were many requests for more Red in the Sith pallet, and thus by popular demand it has been done.
Since this jacket is more of a duster it has gained a sort of bounty hunter feeling to it, which is what spawned the last color scheme—inspired by the legendary Boba Fett. I think it looks good, but it isn’t great. Maybe that just means we need to do a full Fett redesign.
So what do you think of this design, either on it’s own merit or in comparison to the first concept?
