    Mara Jade Redesign
    This is based on what I've read and/or what seemed likely for her typical wardrobe. If you spot any inconsistencies or outright errors, please let me know!

    Having recently listened to the unabridged audiobook version of the Thrawn Trilogy and now into the Hand of Thrawn Duology… I think that you did an outstanding job translating those details over into the visual form! As mentioned in some of them, she has a variety of outfits, depending on the situation she is in.

    Great work :) I am looking forward to seeing more on display here.

    Wow, thank you! I actually just finished listening to those same books myself. I'm thinking that a drawing of Thrawn and Pelleon will be next.

    Thank you! :)
    It's hard to say exactly how long this took; I worked on it off and on for about two weeks.

    Wow, I really like your style. It's just stylized enough to look nice in comic book, but not so much that it loses realism. If that makes sense at all.

    I stumbled in here by chance so I didn't know what to expect, but I hope we'll see more! Do you have a DeviantArt?

    Redheads of Legend
    In light of the EU being re-dubbed as stories of "Legend", here is a drawing of the most prominent female redheads now in that category. Can you identify each? Who's your favorite?

    You have a great distinctive style. I love the freshness within the features and I adore the cartoon styling. Great job. :)
