GDC Fan Friday

I guess I'd better post this before it's Friday again. But yes, I'm terribly late on this one.

Last Friday was a Fan Friday in which the developers also put up a list of GDC-related posts for The Old Republic around the web. But I'll get to that.

First there is the section of "Community Creations". Let me quote the original post:
Fan Art

Community member Hazaz created some beautifully detailed character sketches that can be seen in the Hazaz Art thread on the forums. You can see the finished art along with some line drawings that help illustrate the creation process. Great job, Hazaz!

Daennika took a shine to the Sith characters shown in the “Deceived” cinematic trailer, and was inspired by The Old Republic concept art for costume design in his recent Sith Warrior creations. He is a completely self-taught, casual artist with no textbook background, and only started digital art about four years ago. There are multiple images that depict the Sith “warrior”, or cool dudes from the trailer forum thread. Very cool style!

Fan Fiction

Community member terminalpleasure posted a captivating piece of Fan Fiction titled “An Unexceptional Jedi.” All six chapters of this gripping narrative are sure to keep you entertained from start to finish!

Sith Guide

Have you watched the Star Wars™ movies and played the games, but still find yourself wondering about certain aspects of the Star Wars™ ethos? Danik Kreldin, a member of The Old Republic community, created a Short History of the Sith for Newbies guide that will help you better understand everything there is to know about the Sith. If you’re leaning more towards the dark side, this information is sure to bring you up to date before diving into a Sith class. And if you’re a member of the Republic forces, get to know your enemy by reading this guide. Fantastic work, Danik Kreldin!
Next up is the "Developer Corner" in which they show us some work-in-progress stuff for the game. There's some animations showing Sith (Inquisitor) Lightning, but I'm not going to embed the video since it plays automatically and makes noise. You can watch it at the original post. But there's also some images of customization for female faces, showing a variety of hairstyles and makeup and such:

(Embed code doesn't seem to be working; find it instead at the original post.)

They also added a couple of new forum avaters:

As said they also posted a bunch of links to articles coming out of GDC, but I covered pretty much all of them already in my previous post. In fact, the only new link is the one to Giant Bomb (and they're still missing the Gamespot and The Escapist links).

Oh, and they also mentioned that they'll be at E3 again this year, which shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

And that's it. The most exiting thing was definitely the shots of the character customization.
