Giving this an up.
Def. needs an up!
Another up! Boy, am I annoying!
Come back! We miss you!!!!!!!!!!!!
My apologies to everyone who thought I'd disapeared off the planet or something, but I've been busy and distracted. I have been drawing, if not to any specific theme, so I thought I'd finally get around to posting some of the work I've done in time away. Enjoy!
Christmas Gifts 4 friends
Jacen/ Nen YIM
angel_gidget's back! angel_gidget's back!
Wonderful new pieces, too! I love them all, it's hard to choose favorites! The first one that really hit me is the Luke, Ben and Vader piece: oh, hearttug!! **sniffles emotionally** I love the concept here: Luke, holding his infant son, and his father holding the baby's hand... Wonderful, and a lot of emotion! The one of Jacen behind TK makes me think of the latest LOTF novel, with the idea of her putting herself in a position to defend or protect him, rather than the other way around... A great illustrative piece! Nelani is beautiful--such a waste of a good Jedi... And of course I love the way you do Ben, showing his freckles! Beautiful, vibrant coloring in all of them, and I just love your style--it's so expressive and original! Wonderful (and generous!) update!
So glad you like them! I really love the J/TKness of the LOTF novels and it often appears in my work. I just finished reading Tempest and have a lot of sketch ideas now. The frustrating part is they changed Ben's haircut! That kinda messes up how I visualize him. It's not quite as bad as bearded Jacen, but it's still a tad frustrating.
As for Nelani, I'm glad you like her sketches too. When I heard about her from Spoilers, I didn't expect to like her due to her interest in Jacen. I worried that she'd just be a brunette version of Danni Quee, but I was surprised to find that I liked her and I found Ben's crush on her to be very cute. Her death actually upset me, and I was inspired to do a little art...
So glad to hear from you once again!
Woho! Love the new ones! Esp the two kissing scenes! The Jacen/Nen one is cute.
I also like the forth one. Love Tenel's clothes. Dunno why. They just look cool.
Excellent work again!
I'm so glad you like 'em! I got the TK clothing ideas from a friend who made some custom video game skins to represent Jacen & Tenel Ka on her system. I thought it was very ninja and very cool. Thank you once again. ^_^
Well, here I am--here and back again like a good little hobit. Today's theme: Legacy!
'Cause even though everybody else is crabbing about it, I'm loving it. ^_^
I admit I haven't read Legacy yet, but I love your art!
Esp the Jedi Spies made me laugh. Ben (I guess it is him) glancing at the viewer over his sunglasses is prizeless!
Great update! Bravo!
Aww, thanks Chilla! It is indeed Ben in the J.E.D.I. spies promo. The last picture is meant to be Ben too. Actually, it's Mara's semi-vision of fighting an evil(!) blonde(!) version of her son.
Yeah, I've read somewhere that they've changed Ben's haircolor. Irritates me a bit.
Now that you've mentioned it, he does look kinda evil in the pic. *hides*
They changed Ben's haircut, but his color is still consistent. The boy remains a red-head as far as we know. It's just that during the vision-thingie, the appearances of those who fought each other seemed to change. Jacen looked hagard and unkept to Luke and Luke looked bearded to Jacen. Mara looked crazy to Ben and Ben looked blonde and evil to Mara. It wasn't that their appearances actually changed, it was just the dark side playing tricks on their brains.
With your permission, I'd like to add the image of Jaina by herself to the Jaina/Jag Index. They're all beautiful, but that's the one that fits the bill for the database. Glad to see an update from you.
Ah, that explains. Thanks!
Aww, I love your new stuff! Especially the JEDI Spies one... LOL!
They all look wonderful.
Wow, very cool. I really like the one of Jaina. that one is my favorite, and the Jedi Spies. that is Hilarious . well done!
I love them all!! How can I pick favs when they're all so great?! Let's see--the Jaina and Zekk piece is wonderful: I love the look on Zekk's face there, and the little "broken heart" above Jaya! Too perfect! "Jedi Spies" had me on the floor--that's inspired! A superb interpretation of "the boys in black!" lol! The TK portrait is soooo pretty--loving the wide-open gray eyes there. As always--gorgeous coloring in all of these (I think I mentioned once before they all remind me of stained glass, in a way...gorgeous!). Great, great update, angel!
I love them all, too. Nice work, as always.
I just made a fun journey through this site. Your work is great! It's unique! Though a "cartoon" you absolutely capture all the emotions of the characters!!! And the characters are consistantly recognizable. I just love it!!!!!
FalconFan directed me here..so a big thanks to her. I was whiny because there are too few Ben Skywalkers out there. It is a pain he was described with short hair. I'd pictured it shaggy the way you had drawn him. Oh well, maybe he'll grow it out!
Very cool!!!! I think my favorite is the one with Jacen holdig sleeping Allana and pouty teen Ben is in the foreground.
I love your "Jedi spies" so so cool !!
Jacen & Ben are men in black
Wow! FalconFan sent me over here, and it was certainly worth the trip. You have such a spunky, colorful style, and you're wonderful with facial expressions.
I love the way you draw Jaina. She has attitude. The one of her and Kyp standing is a great shot of her. She even has the Solo grin.
Your pregnant Tenel Ka is absolutely beautiful.
I'm pretty sure I'll love you forever for having so much Zekk and J/Z. They hardly ever get drawn, and you did such a good job. And you drew the scene from Tempest with Zekk walking away! The expression on Jaina's face is priceless. I also adore the one on the first (I think) page of Zekk towering over Jaina. But I'm not picky, really; I love them all.
Thanks for sharing these!
wow, I really like sith jacen
angel_gidget, I'm not really an art fan, but I saw your works on deviantart, and I just have to say how moved I was. I have loved Jaina and Zekk (and the two of them together), and it breaks my heart when people say he is not good enough for her, and that he will never be with her. It's just plain depressing.
But you have shown how nice their relationship can be, and for that, I am truly grateful. Thank you.
