This is my first skin for JK2. Mooncurser aka Ro'an Kabyles,
a notorious intergalactic smuggler and jedi outcast.
Please comment, good or bad, i wanna hear it.

There is a serious shortage of ethnic models in the starwars
universe, with one token black guy in every movie.
Jar Jar's step 'n' fetchit routine doesn't count *wink*
Thought i'd try to correct that...at least in the game.

Any new skin suggestions welcome.

It's good. The first Black guy in JKII!?! But, before you release, change the weeqay taunt, remember the Weequay taunt in weequish, and I'm assuming you want your Smugler to speak English!

actually it does have its own taunt and bot support! Mace winduu and Kel are the first black jk2 skins i think. thanks for the comments though.

hahahaa, yeah almost forgot about Lando...WhooHoo!!!! I did say that there was one in every film though right? Now its Samuel Jackson. I have a question...where are the asians/indians/etc? (trade federation dubbed voices don't count.*wink*)

Hey, I think anakin's little friend looked like he might be indian, he was dark-skinned at any rate (but not black). And hey don't forget the voice of Vader was a black dude, though I'm not sure about the guy under the suit. Wasn't the actor in the Chewbacca suit black as well (though again, he was kinda hidden under a suit). Janson's round face in ESB sort of looked oriental-ish. I'd have to pop in my film and watch it again to be sure though.

Hey, that's right! Anakins buddy did look indian. I'm not familiar with Janson. All of those other characters you stated where all hidden under a suit...hmmmm, is there a message there? Subliminals from lucas? Decipher amongst yourselves.

well im glad someone remembered my Kel skin there ;) . He had bot support and a taunt too though...

But anyway, very creative use of the Weequay model. Thats actually the model that i started the Kel skin on, with plans to make the dreadlocks as you have there. Definetly a good conversion of an otherwise difficult model to skin.

Wicked! I love that i said the Kel skin name and the creator magically appears to post! Absath, what where your thoughts while making Kel? Did he already exist in the starwars universe? Why did you pick him, and what are you working on next?

hey... i just thought of somting..... if you ditch the funky/interesting gotee... this guy will look just like lister from red dwarf....

LMAO. I didn't think of that. It must be the dreadlocks. Jeez, can't say i liked that show either, but i have seen it.

I am not a fan of cross universe skins. My personal opinion is that even multiplayer games should be starwars exclusive. It helps the suspension of disbelief to stay in character. IMHO only. I love the responses so far...keep em coming.

The palace guard guy from tpm was black. How quickly people forget in order to make a joke.

Hey, no one is trying to make light of racism here, the new film obviously learned from the last three. The post was about the skin. comment on that. The "palace guard guy" was Captain Panaka. Thanks for reminding me, I'm ashamed I forgot his fine performance. I've been trying to forget that film. maybe i will make a skin of him next?

hahahha, yeah. A lot of people get blown up fast in starwars. It is a war.

An asian skin would be really cool, but i think i'm gonna make an alien race first. Any suggestions people? :) :)

I think this guy looks to ordinary.
with a little work you can maybe make him look like the predator which would be a lot cooler.

Someone make a Lister skin out of this! :D

I'd prefer a Rimmer skin though..

First of all Indian is not the proper term. From my memory that little fellow was Arabic.

Indian is too vague and too stereoptyped so it can be offensive.

Native American, Inuit, etc, are the proper terms.
