Jedi Solo - WIP by JosephB222 Jedi Solo - WIP by JosephB222
Download for full image.

This is a pic I've been wanting to do for awhile now. But I originally wanted to do the whole Solo family, but figured I'd star with just the kids Solo for now.

So this is a potrait of happier times. If by happy is in the middle of a war, Chewie dead, and Anakin about to bite it ;p But at least Jacen isn't a total @$$tard . . . . yet.

He was still around in the last book of the "Legacy of he Force" series, though he had very brief appearances throughout. I haven't started reading the new series so I don't know if he's been mentioned yet.

Yeah, I was a little late returning to the novels myself. They were halfway through the "Legacy of the Force" when I pick it up. And I still haven't read half the "New Jedi Order" series that came before it.

Shouldn't Jaina be the one with the purple blade though?

Yeah, there's certainly a lot of debate on what color Jaina's saber should be (it's even mentioned on Jaina's Wookieepedia page). I first came into reading about the Solo kids as Jedi with the New Jedi Order novels (Star By Star in fact) so going by the Japanese covers and that they do describe Jaina's saber as violet, Anakin's the one who has the purple lightsaber on the covers while Jaina has a bluish violet. So I just go with that. Besides, I like that each of them have different color sabers.

lord, I really dont get why people hate Jacen so much. He's my favorite character. I'm still 3 books away from the end of the NJO, They just found Zonama Sekot and Jacen is all cool and non-violent.WTF? Why do you guys hate him so much?

It's a great rendition, although you mannage to make Jacen look rather menacing still...=p

Obviously, you like Jacen very much. (I envy you actually...:() One advice: If you don't want to hate him, don't read LotF... But I agree with you that he's really cool in NJO. :)

Oh, and sorry for that comment...I just...couldn't resist...:blushes:

Well I find him a bit out of character because he seemed like that he had lost his fondness of jokes in New jedi Order. And also sometimes a bit arrogant about Lukes plans to restore the Jedi Council. I prefered him in Young Jedi Knights. :)

no problem, the more people to explain the better :)

ah, well, I'm going to have to read them now arent I? :D

I like the sith in a way, since they make the force side of the story more interesting. Palpatine was a very interesting character. I like a good story, and I have a real fondness for antiheroes. We'll see if I can still like Jacen after I read the books. As long as they give some good storyline and write from his point of view it should be ok. I like to see how a character makes his choices.

Jacen scared me a little in some parts of Traitor, but his circumstances made up for his actions.

Oh, there is no shortage of Jacen's POV in LotF. Sometimes bordering on torturously so. But that's just me ;) . But for the most part it's a very solid characterization.

A lot of us only hate the LotF rendition, and that's mostly Tempest onwards (he tried to kill his parents, for Force's sake!)

Morgalahan Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well, I suppose, but I still dont understand how he can change so much from the person he is now for me. It's only a few books before the end of the NJO for me, so wtf happens? I have to read the LotF if only to indulge my curiosity.

It might not help that I like the sith....

There is about a 12 year gap from the end of NJO to the beginning of LotF and the Dark Nest trilogy (which I haven't read yet) happens in the middle of that timeframe, where apparently Jacen does something that not many people like very much. But even so Jacen's turn does seem a little sudden since it happens in the first book.

Morgalahan Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hmm, I think I have that trilogy too, somewhere, I'll definately give it a read before LotF, which I still have to get, not to mention find in my country.

It's just, almost unrealy. It's like they made an evil clone of him or something. He's such a nice guy...

Well, that's the thing, I actually started reading "Legacy of the Force" before I did NJO, and I've only read a few of those books (from "Star by Star" to "Destiny's Way" --skipping "Traitor"-- and Jacen was out of the picture for all but 2 of those books I think), so the Jacen I know most is Sithbag-face from LOTF which as far as I'm concerned (especially after reading "Revelation") is one big "Infinities" mini-series. But maybe when I get back to NJO I'll start liking that Jacen, but since Anakin was originally supposed to be the "hero" of NJO there is a feeling of the reader being force-fed Jacen (I doubt it even occurred to the boys club that is Star Wars that Jaina might have been a better choice :crazy: ).


As for the Solos' expressions I was actually going for cool bad-assary. Hehehe, even good Jacen gives off that evil vibe ;p .

you should actually give Traitor a read, it's one of my fave in the series and is veeeeery well written. It makes me understand a lot more about Jacen, and made me think his darkside conversion was going to happen then. The fact that it doesnt is really amazing and shows what a strong person he is. He really tries so hard to find a solution other than violence, and makes some choices that even Luke fails in.

Jaina is the hero, shes been very much the hero for the past, oh, 8 or more books? She fell to the darkside for a while too, but came back...

Jaina isnt as fun for me to read as Jacen since she focuses too much on the pilot and military aspect and not really on the force at all.

Hehehehe, that would be the nutshell. I just wish they could make Jacen a better villain, and though the extra screentime in "Revelation" for Jaina was welcomed she still didn't do much of anything. Hell, Kyle Katarn has gotten more action than her this entire series.

Shouldn't it be Jedi Solos with a "s"?

I like the contrasting white body against a black background.

I'm actually using "Jedi" as the plural ;) but since "Jedi" doesn't change this is what I get.
