Mara Jade Skywalker by wraithdt Mara Jade Skywalker by wraithdt
Here's a rare fan art piece I did of Mrs Skywalker. She's one of the coolest female leads in the Star Wars mythos but its too bad she died in the novels.

Notice she's using Luke's original lightsaber, the one he lost when he fought Vader, which he than retrieved later on and gave it to Mara.

Hope you guys like it.

I was looking at your (cool) gallery when I noticed her beard. I would retouch her chin if I were you.

I gotta go back in reading star wars... when i was young i really liked the design of Luke's blue lightsaber, imagine my surprise when i learned that he retrieved it, and then instead if wasting it "museum-style" he gave it to the coolest female star wars character ever created, which happen to be his wife. Awesomeness has no end, they deserve either movies or high quality series about her, especially during the... book... series/ark involving the Solo twins's tragedy and her death. Sorry i got carried away, this piece (all of them) is so wonderful! it deserve to be seen and reckognize all around the world... that's what i think.

Ohhh! Isn't there a bigger version of this? I had it as a desktop wallpaper only yesterday but I forgot to save it on my computer and now I can't find it on the web again... :((((((((

It's so annoying. I used it YESTERDAY and I don't remember where I found it... Gah! :(

It looked like this.. but I flipped the image to make it match with the placement of my icons

Love it! My favorite character in the entire Star Wars Universe. If they include her in Episode VII I may actually be intrigued.

And thank GOD someone drew her with the right lightsaber for a change. Seems like ever since By the Emperor's Hand and Mysteries of the Sith, 90% of fan and official artwork forgets that she uses Luke's old lightsaber and draw her with that purple thing. :-P

Bah, the New Jedi Order books aren't canon, she's still alive and well as per Timothy Zahn's original plan, as far as I'm concerned!!

Beautiful portrait of the character; I love the use the color and the dynamic yet contemplative pose. Excellent use of the lightsaber as well!

I go with the Fishverse. An Origami Fish rewrote the entire New Jedi Order series without using character death as a way to inject a moment of drama. Anakin survives Myrkr, thus ensuring that Tahiri doesn't become a red herring character with no purpose. (Naturally the thing to do with her is to turn her into a deranged slut sleeping with her dead boyfriend's brother—I HATE YOU DENNING YOU SADISTIC BASTARD! He doesnt respect any of the characters he plays around with at all. he uses them like toys, and throws them away when they get too hard to write.)

This will also be leading up to Jacen turning due to jealousy rather than a play for play reenactment of RotS.

It's called A Destiny Altered. I know, bad name, but if you love Anakin and Tahiri, you'll love it. Especially since An Origami Fish faithfully replicates the feel of a Star Wars novel, kept the characters acting natural and actually develops them (unlike Denning's method).

everyone dies in the novels :P

but yes. she is pretty epic. One of the best. I switch between her being my fav character and Jacen solo, his books were such fun reads. But mara is just so wonderfully stubborn when she first meets luke. All I'm going to kill you! And hes all like lol sure you are. And shes all pissed... not exactly love at first sight...

I like how far you carried the blue glow of the saber, and how you added blue in other parts to make it look more unified and make it a more relaxed mood. Her eye seems a little dull for some reason, a little lacking in life, but I still love the pic.
