Jest's Swoop

Post by Jens on Wed Dec 31, 2008 2:03 pm

Jest didn't like the Republic speeder bikes but he heard that some new Swoop Bikes were being sold by some smugglers on Corellia. These swoops were very fast, swift and was the perfect choice for the speed loving Jest.

Hmm.

Another good design, again, could use some more "Republicy" details. I don't like the clone, though Mad .

No, the chest decal. I've never liked the back of the pilot.

i was thinking about giving him a shock trooper torso, but that just makes him look like a caped shock trooper.

Very nice bike, however, the front's a bit too short. The clone trooper's head is too close to the front of the bike, so extend it a bit more.

I really like the creativity of this bike, but I don't like the front. I think that for [/i]speed[i] you would want an aerodynamic (Big word!) sort of shape.
