Finally!!!! Another Mara Jade pic :boogie:

This is Mara shortly after the Thrawn trilogy. Not sure why she's smiling. I imagine she is about to make someone (or someones) very unhappy, :D

I simply love your art and Mara Jade! I wrote a song with her name too. If anyone is interested, let me know.

This is probably my favorite Mara. You know, there have been a couple of youtube videos that contribute to Mara with most if not all of your Mara pics.

Ah, Mara... **sniffles** Back in the good ol' days of the TTT... It's really a fitting tribute, as things stand right now--but I'm going to ignore all that and just enjoy this beautiful painting: her face is all MJ--fierce, contained...with a touch of feral there; fabulous job with her leather catsuit--perfect highlights! :clap: And I'm really liking that background, too--it's like folded black satin...very fitting, I'm thinking! :nod: This one is DEFINITELY a :+fav:!

Thanks. Instead of going with a lighter color at a low opacity I would normally use for highlighting, I went with a darker shade (in this case a darker shade of gray) at a higher opacity to give it a more solid look.
I don't care if Mara is 20-something or almost 60 years old, she knows how to work the leather outfits :love: . Although I've seen pics of Mara wearing a couple different kind of outfits, this one seems to be the definitive Mara attire. It certainly my favorite. I love drawing it :D .

Thanks. This is my attempt at a younger Mara (even though my first Mara wasn't exactly showing her age ;p ). But I don't quite have her face the way I want it. Since I've decided that Famke Janssen is gonna be the basis for my Mara I was trying for Famke in Goldeneye. "Legacy" Mara would be "Jean Grey" Famke.
I'm sure I'll do better with the next pic :D .

For some reason I prefer JediMaster!Mara over any other incarnation...does that make me unique?

Lovely pose, BTW. :)

Thanks.

I've only read a few novels of the NJO and Mara really isn't that different from how she is when she was Knight, which just means the writers don't use her enough. :pissedoff:

I'm sure they'll still do many more stories with her. That is, if they're smart. Considering the large fanbase Mara has.

I just love how you create the highlights on her costume!...it's not overly shiny, or to dull. You have a perfect balence there...and the facial expression! You also have a strength in this area! NICE WORK!!!

(But still awaiting the two double sided lightsaber action! *LMAO*)

Thanks. I did highlight the leather of her outfit a little differently than I usually would. I wanted no mistake that she was wearing leather ;p

One question: What's the blaster name? Cause I don't remember this one.
Reply
:iconjosephb222:
JosephB222 Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2007
The blaster was just something I came up with. Though I would say it's something of a cross between Han's blaster and the heavy blasters from the first KOTOR. I really didn't feel like drawing an actual blaster. Much easier (also see: lazy) to make something up ;p .
