Dark Tahiri - WIP by JosephB222 Dark Tahiri - WIP by JosephB222
This is my first new pic since getting over the flu and finishing "Revelation" (not counting commissions). And while Tahiri's character turn in that book was very sudden without explaination I hope they don't waste her Sith status in "Invincible". In "Revelation" they had the perfect opportunity for Tahiri and Jaina to duel and they blew it. Here's hoping Denning makes up for it.

It would be so cool if they had two duels going on at the same time. Tahiri fighting Ben while Jaina faces Jacen. It could actually work as Ben's trial to becoming a Jedi.

****edit

I fixed Tahiri's legs, but then decided to clean all the linework and once that was done it was fairly simple to fill in all the base colors. I also shortened her lightsaber since I do have a tendency to make really long saber blades ;P

She never should've been made a Sith... but she does look properly bad-arse here :clap:

Yeah, I was surprised as well that Tahiri did what she did.

Will you be doing a 'Always Two There Are' drawing of Tahiri and Caedus?

I hope you can finish this pronto, she looks so great. I haven't read much of the New Jedi Order books so I don't know what happened to her forehead. She was captured by the Yuuzhan Vong, but... You should make another version of with her Sith Master, Darth Caedus someday.

Man I hope she dies...via Mirta or something...I just don't like what they've done with her, it feels so rushed.

You made her look cook though!

Well, I think once Jaina finishes training with Fett the Mandalorian storyline will end there, that was a thing in the Traviss books which the other authors didn't even touch. If Tahiri does die I hope it's in a Jedi duel, preferably with Ben, since Jaina or Luke would definitely be too much for her.

yeah which is a bummer because she went into so much detail and storyline with the Mandos, and it will feel weird to have it just gone in the last book.

Ben facing off with Tahiri would be cool and probably is something they would do for the whole old apprentice/new apprentice thing.

You know that never occurred to me :doh: Jacen's apprentices fighting. That just makes a Tahiri/Ben duel all the more necessary ;) .
