Inferno 1-preview spoiler by JosephB222 Inferno 1-preview spoiler by JosephB222
I took a little breather from my current batch of commissions do a pic of one of my favorite scenes from "Inferno" (which I had finished reading a couple days ago).
Those who have read it know that Tahiri tried to arrest Han and Leia for Jacen, but Tahiri really caught Leia in a bad mood and she pretty much beat the **** out of Tahiri.
I really like Tahiri and it's ashamed this happened to her, but it was a really cool fight :D .

No. The drawing is good, but I would hope that a highly trained sword-fighter would not reach that far just to block or attack. She is putting her center of gravity too far forward, and thus is off-balance, should her oponent take advantage of it. This is why I usually try to do as much research as possible before drawing something realistic ...

Oh yeah. I had forgotten all about Tahiri's Tusken heritage. Anakin must have put a curse on them. His bloodline certainly hasn't been very kind to Tahiri. Anakin Solo dies on her, Jacen is trying to corrupt her, and Leia beats her down :( .

I fear that Tahiri is being molded to be Jacen's actual apprentice, and I really don't want to see that happen.

But yea, she was totally outfought by Leia. Booya!

Yeah. That would be sad. But if it means the writers will actually give her something to do, it might be worth it. And I hope they continue to give Leia cool action scenes, she got a lot of play in the book. People seem to forget that Leia is Darth Vader's daughter and even if she's not as knowledgable as Luke she should be just as strong with the Froce. It just urks me how the female half of the twins in Anakin's bloodline are treated as weaker then their male siblings.

I think Leia may very well be the stronger of the two as she has her entire body intact (Luke did lose his hand after all), has served politically, and has certainly been proving her capabilities of late. I'm willing to bet she makes Master...if that vision of Jacen's doesn't come true. Though I could see her doing that.

JosephB222 Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2007
Yeah, I don't buy that stuff Lumiya was telling Jacen about missing body parts diminishes one's power of the Force. Whether she actually believes it herself or not, it's just something that never struck me as true. Especially since one of Yoda's more important lessons to Luke was "size matters not." You lose an arm, a leg, even hand, you're gonna be a little smaller than you used to be ;p . After Obiwan got through with Anakin on Mustafar Yoda might've started referring to him as "shorty" ;) .

And it would make sense if Leia made master very soon. Even if she hadn't really been training, she has been using the force for longer than most of the other Jedi in the Order (probably even her own master) have been alive.

Actually it makes sense. If midichlorians are part of the connection to the Force, and they live in your body's cells, by losing a lot of body mass, you are losing a lot of power. Size may matter not, but Yoda was completely whole still by the end of his days. You have proof that Vader had lost power at the end of Revenge of the Sith when everything around him is damaged...but Palpatine was completely untouched. For a guy who was supposed to become more powerful than either he or Yoda...that shouldn't have happened. It's also been referenced that Vader's power was diminished in canon in the book adaptation of Revenge of the Sith.

But yea, I'd love to see Leia become a Master. She's a fully trained Knight now, the potential is there even if the experience with the Force isn't as great as Luke's. It's interesting though that there is absolutely no mention of the Solos in the Legacy comics. Skywalkers yes. Solos....not a peep.

Oh, yeah, the explanation is very logical. But I really don't want logic, science, or biology to play a part in something that's supposed to be a (mystical) energy. Kinda takes away the fatasy part of Star Wars. I like to think of the Force as more to do with a person's willpower or strength of spirit. Just seems cooler.
As far as canon goes, I like to keep the worlds separate. The movies, comics, videos games, and novels. Though novels and comics have shared events quite successfully in the past, but even then there are a lot of contridictions, so you really have to pick and choose for yourself. Hell, at this point I'm considering the whole LotF series as an alternate timeline just to better accept some of the absurdity that's been taking place :D .

Yea, they seem to be pushing too hard to get all the Star Wars material to line up right. But the comics currently are definitely a part of canon, and Inferno hinted at Darth Krayt, who's a major player in Legacy comics...and coincidentally a major player in the Clone Wars comics.

I am curious to see what happens with the Solos...cause there's not even a mention of Cadeus. From my best guess, I would say that Jacen is going to be taken out, quite possibly by the Solos, be it Leia or Jaina.

However when Jaina was getting the Sword of the Jedi title, I don't think there's many of the original writers that were on that team developing that storyline still left, so it's difficult to tell what is going to come of that. I know Stackpole certainly isn't one of them (differences of opinion between him and the Editor, so he says).

I haven't read the Legacy comic yet, but I should, the art looks excellent. And I'm sure they haven't mentioned the Solos yet because they haven't really resolved the Solo family troubles in LotF, and they'd want to retain the freedom to keep options open.

And seeing how it does look like Jacen is not long for that world, hehehehe. I don't see him having anymore kids, especially if his organs continued to be sliced up. And do Hapes (Hapians?) even have last names. Would Tenel Ka want anyone to know her daughter is Jacen's daughter.

And in the "Sword of the Jedi" prophecy Luke spouted I think he said something about Jaina always being alone, so things don't look good for her to pass the Solo name through any children, unless she has one out of wed-lock or marries a guy without a last name ;p .

But yeah, how they've treated Jaina is the biggest crime. Set her up as "The Sword of the Jedi" and then do absolutely nothing with her :omfg: . Unfortunately, it seems this batch of authors are sleeping snuggly in the "Star Wars is a boys-only playground" camp. Which is a shame since Allston and Denning have written some of my favorite books in NJO.

Well, I was also thinking about doing a Luke dueling Jacen in an Anakin-Obiwan-Episode III-esque-poster-shot (hyphens are my friend :rofl: ). Anakin and Obiwan had the blue sabers, Luke and Jacen have the green ;) .

Hey, an action scene! Inspired by me? ;) Just kidding. Looks pretty cool overall, especially the girl on the left. The character on the right though, something about her pose reads awkward, unsure to me. Maybe it's just that I'm not used to seeing women saber-dueling.

[Fat-Bastard pinky] M'be . . . . ;p . But I've been wanting to do a pic like this ever since I read this part. But I actually wanted to do a mini-comic of this scene, especially with all of Han's dialogue. He was pretty funny during this scene.
It's a shame the only time you see female Jedi dueling is in video games and comic books. I doubt we'll ever see any live-action women using lightsabers.

That's difficult to say. With all the commissions I'm working on at the moment it's easier to steal a little time to do a bit of drawing, but coloring (even to finish just one character) takes me from 3 to 4 hours and that's not counting added effects like lightsabers and backgrounds. Not that I want commissions to slow down, now that they're coming in fairly regularly ;) . But if I find a lull I'll definitely have to start coloring some of my unfisished pictures.
