Mara Jade "Sacrifice" 20K by JosephB222 Mara Jade "Sacrifice" 20K by JosephB222
Now you didn't think I'd come back without something new, did ya? ;)

I know I'm jinxing the hell out of myself by labelling this my 20K pic so early, but I missed my 10 and 15 Ks, I wanted to make sure I had something for 20.

While I was out of town visiting my brother and his family, "Survivor's Quest" was the book I took to read on the trip, so it put me in a missing Mara mood. Luckily I took my pencils and pens and some paper and was able to start the sketch. Couldn't really think of what to have her do, so I just decided to recreate the cover of "Sacrifice". I was a planning on doing the same background (which I'm assuming is Corusant) but then it didn't even happen there. Besides the lightsabers shine better against black, :D

Other than putting her shoto in her other hand I really didn't change anything from the cover (except make her age closer to that in the book).

**** tiny edit ***

Since I always forget that Mara is supposed to have blondish red hair I figured I give it shot. All I did was re-color her hair. I posted the original image to scraps for those who haven't seen it and if you like that one more I can always switch it back :)

I like how her face looks more mature than it usually does here.

I'm wondering about the reason she wears clothing like that--assuming there's a reason other than the illustrator just liked her dressed like that. (I'm thinking of book covers where she's pretty much dressed like that, too.) At least she has knee pads.
