    Oh god, that is NASTY.

    I don't mean the painting, I really like the style, I mean the actual scene. Poor Mara would have had her heart broken if she were witness to this [face_worried]

    I know. I can't believe it happened. What a sad state of affairs.

    Thanks for taking a look and taking the time to comment.

    The "Inferno Spoiler" is heartbreaking!! :_| Poor, poor Ben! Of all the horrible things Caedus might have had in mind for Ben, this was the last thing I expected... After what he himself endured in the Embrace, I couldn't begin to imagine Caedus would inflict it upon his young cousin (who we're led to believe he cares about in some fashion...yeah, right...). **shaking head** The pain in Ben's face here is so pronounced--so real...great job with that--and that black b/g is perfect for keeping the focus where you want it here: on the looming figure in the foreground, and on poor Ben... Wow...great job (even if this was the part of the book I hated most!)!

    Thanks FalconFan. When we were discussing your WIP it got me thinking about this scene. If you recall one of my first non-photomanips was the drawing of Jacen in the embrace of pain. I thought it would be fitting to draw the second version of this.

    I wasn't quite sure exactly what the chair looked like. It sounded organic, so I just winged it.
    I am glad you think it is technically good. Sorry that is is so disturbing. I guess it fits my mood lately. [face_worried] Either I am drawing depressing stuff or parodies. Talk about mood swings. :p

    Thanks LittleZion. I love the writing in LOTF, but I really wish my favorite EU character did not have to die. It is a major disappointment to me. Well, at least there is fanfiction. [face_tired]


    Last year I did a Poser rendering of Luke and Mara's first kiss on Nirauan. Well, technically it was their first kiss. Mara was in a healing trance at the time so she couldn't enjoy it. :p

    Anyway I thought I would remake it:
    [image=http://img223.imageshack.us/img223/5432/astolenkissonnirauan4as8.jpg]

    Here is a comparison of my Poser Rendering and my painting, which I made by basically painting over the rendering: Before and After

    What do you think?

    This may be the last drawing for a while. My soldier is returning home this weekend... this time for good. Retirement finally has arrived. [face_mischief]

    This is a beautiful peace, very romantic. I love the detail in the hair and in Luke's arms. Great addition.

    Yes, I know... she should have never died. She was the best EU character in my humble opinion. I am glad you like this pic!

    Thank you! Yes, Poser makes the arms to scrawny. I wanted a buff looking Luke.
    Thank you. The Halloween pic took the longest to make. I drew the various Sith individually and then put them together for the Halloween poster. My boys liked it.

    Thanks everybody for taking the time to look and comment.

    I did another painting this week. It is of Cade Skywalker and his 'friend' Deliah Blue.

    Thanks Trace. I actually like Deliah better than Cade. She seems like the ultimate loyal friend! Cade is lucky to have her.

    So nice to see you doing some images that's not related to the terrible LotF series. How I love Deliah blue! I've been meaning to do (an image of) her one of these days, but haven't gotten around to it. The only thing is, I don't think Cade would be caught dead with his arm around her in such a seemginly public situation, lol! Legacy issues can't come out fast enough!

    Thanks guys for your responses. I am sorry that I have not responded lately. October was a horrible month for me. I don't want to go into details but a person known to my family started harrassing me, first on DeviantArt, then TFN, then found out my home address, then email address then phone number. I got to the point where I was ready to get a restraining order. The restraining order threat ended the contact, but I still am on edge waiting for the next harrassing PM or email. Since I knew I was being watched by this crazy I have been offline for a long time.

    But screw it, I did nothing wrong and if some crazy decides to make my life miserable, I can't help it and I can't live in a cave waiting for the next attack.

    Anyway, I have been working on a unique Star Wars creation. It is a work in progress. I have some finishing touches to do, but I give you my Master Bathroom:

    Thank you! I am really happy with how it turned out.
    Thank you! I appreciate you looking and taking the time to comment.
    Thanks! My husband jokingly wondered how it would affect the resale value of the home. :p I am hoping this is the last house we will live in. After 25 years of military service and over 12 moves in that time... I am tired of moving. This is our retirement home.
    Thanks HS29. Yeah, things have been quiet for almost two months. This is that little problem I had you look into for me about 6 months ago. The person was persistant in harrassing me. Hopefully they are gone.
    Hey, I am willing to do commissions. I just glue the mosaic onto nylon mesh and you just mortar it to a wall or floor in place of a regular tile.

    Thanks everybody for your feedback!

    I Found Your Fan Art Googling Jacen
    And Your Painting Of Mara Coming Back As A Force Ghost To Get Jacen Came Up

    I Think It Would Be Exactly What Mara Would Do

    Your Star Wars Mosaic Is Really Cool!!!

    If anybody is interested in buying them there is a link in the description that will send you to ebay. They would make a great gift to your favorite SW fan.
