Skywalker Family - preview by JosephB222 Skywalker Family - preview by JosephB222
I found myself with some freetime :w00t: (finished a commission, but another fell through, and 2 others are on hold :worry: ) so I decided to do some new drawings.

I just had to add my girl Mara :love: with my Luke pic.

I've been wanting to do a Mara/Luke pic for awhile now, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. And this set up gives me the option of adding Ben later ;) .

**** edit****

Just added Ben. The whole Skywalker family :D !!!

Seems like the only official picture of Ben is his picture on the cover of "Fury", but I couldn't use it because he all kind of ugly :laughing: . From stupid ugly to ***damn!!! The Ben fanart looked way better. Most artists gave him spikey hair or a crew cut, so I went a little in between. His hair is standing up a little but he's got a few bangs going, which turned out to look more like Luke's hair.

And the uniform I based on how Jacen's GAG uniform is discribed as being black and militaristic, so I gave it a little Imperial influence as well.

***edit - March 20, 08

Another update preview. I wanted to wait until I had finished coloring all of them, but it looks like that's going to be awhile still :cry:
But here are the base colors ;p


***added July 25, 2009

I did a little coloring to this pic while I was away. As you can tell, I barely got anything done. However I did redo Mara's lightsaber, the hilt looked a little too fat before (though Ben is blocking half of it). I'm probably going to redo Ben's lightsaber as well,doesn't look cool enough ;p

I also changed the title of the Deviation.

Nice job! I find it ironic that Luke married Mara, who was supposed to kill him. But instead she fell in love with him and married him. And then they had Ben.

I really like this picture. Especially the way you did Ben's hair, although it has the color of his mother, the style makes him look like his father's son. That is an unfortunate thing I always notice when people draw the offspring of main characters--they look completely different from their parents.

Very cool. I love it.

Nice work so far...but I can't help but think the woman's breasts are a bit big for her body. Nothing wrong with large ones, until they start to look over the top, and draw too much attention away from the rest of the piece, as they appear to be doing (at least to me) here.

I see what you're saying. I do add a little exaggeration to my drawings, even my guys, but nobody notices it on male characters because they're men :O_o:

Besides, Mara is supposed to have a dancer's body. Not my fault if Beyonce is a great dancer :D

I really like your depiction of Ben... I agree with him looking fairly unattractive on the cover of Fury... why is it that most of the Star Wars covers are so god damned awful? The Japanese versions are usually awesome...

anyway, great work, it's nice to see the Skywalker clan together. Your interpretation of the GAG uniform fits perfectly.

kick arse.

And I am looking forward to seeing the Japanese covers of Legacy of the Force. Considering how bad the American covers look they're bound to look much better.

That he does. But you do have to wonder if it was Mara's wanting to kill him that first attracted him? If so, Luke is kinda freaky :laughing: . Remember, Leia fell for a scoundrel, so it's not too far-fetched that Luke would fall for a spy/assassin ;p .

Reply
:iconjosephb222:
JosephB222 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2007
That's what they call a shoto (or short lightsaber). I believe it's something they came up with way back in the original Star Wars comic book. It's used to counter the advantage the lightwhip has over a single-bladed lightsaber. It was Mara's main weapon during her fight with Jacen in "Sacrifice" (still upset they didn't let her use a regular lightsaber :pissed: ) but I thought of way to use it during my version of the Mara/Jacen duel.
