Its beautifull!
I love the colours,especially Luke´s eyes.They are perfect:)
22nd-Jan-2006 09:30 pm (UTC)
Thankyou! I'm glad to hear that I got Luke's eyes right! :~)
22nd-Jan-2006 02:50 am (UTC)
OMG Wow!

That is brilliant, and damnit if it isn't how I see Mara in my head too!
22nd-Jan-2006 09:32 pm (UTC)
Thanks! It's nice to hear that my vision of Mara gells with others'. :~) Glad you enjoyed the pic!

I hate Mara with every fiber of my being and think she is the pimple on the ass of the EU, but even so...this is nice work. :-)

Hee! I was going to say "While I don't like Mara ... blah, blah, blah ... "

But I'd be lying. I hate Mara too.

Still -- this is beautiful! I love the colours -- and Luke's eyes are really amazing. So much emotion there.

Very sweet! I really like how the colors blend, and of course, the hair is beautiful!
22nd-Jan-2006 06:26 am (UTC) - Wow!!
First off, how can you hate Mara?!?!?! I LOVE Mara! She totally rox! And Kate, you have captured her perfectly here! And thank you for not making Luke a "blond" blond. Where do all these fan artists get the idea that Luke is a perfect blond? He's not. Dark blond, I'll give you, but true blond? Nope. Not since he was a teenager.

I love the look on Luke's face the best, I think. And the slightly possesive gesture of his hand on her back speaks volumes. Totally cool.

You do not want to send me off on a Mara rant. Believe me.

That is done in color pencils?! O__O! This is absolutely amazing Leela. I love how soft and flowy the whole piece is and the way you used the strokes too. Gods....I miss working with my pencils and pastels too.

Thanks so much for sharing! ^3^

Thanks, gwyll! So glad you enjoyed it. And, yes, it was nice working with coloured pencils for a change. :~D

omg i thought that was lily potter! :)
22nd-Jan-2006 09:46 pm (UTC)
Heh, no. ;~) I haven't drawn James and Lily much yet...

ARghll!!! *drool*

New SW art!! Be still my heart! Even with Luke and Mara, it's still sooo cool to see new stuff from you in this fandom.

Beautiful job. *sigh*

p.s. I don't suppose there's anyone nagging you for Han/Leia art, is there? I'd love to see them again.

"I'd love to see them again."--Like they're old friends. Listen to me. I think I just crossed the border into psychoville.
22nd-Jan-2006 04:16 pm (UTC)
I'm working on a Han/Leia right now, as a matter of fact! :~)

This is really a beautiful piece, Leela. I think the softness of the pencil made it the perfect tool. Your interpretation of Mara is very much genuine; she is human, flawed, imperfect, not gorgeous, and portrayed here as a character I would like to get to know. Your Luke, of course, is wonderful. You got everything right: the size of his hands, the lightness of his eyes belying his age here, the bits of silver in his hair, and hers as well....I love this. Was there a story this was to be connected to?
22nd-Jan-2006 09:16 pm (UTC)
No, there wasn't a story. belovedranger wanted to give ginchy something special for her birthday, and as a thankyou for being her beta reader. :~)
I'm so glad to hear you liked my rendition of Luke, Sue! I tried to make him a little older than he was in Jedi, yet not as old as Mark looks now.
22nd-Jan-2006 08:40 pm (UTC)
This is great! I love how old Luke's eyes are here. It's perfect, and Mara is beautiful, just how I pictured her in the New Jedi Order series.
22nd-Jan-2006 09:49 pm (UTC)
Thanks, hhhellcat! I'm so pleased to hear that I got Luke's eyes right! And I'm glad you liked my take on Mara too! :~)

so pretty ful!!! i envy ur skills!

I like how "earthy" (for lack of a better word) your Mara looks like - you made her a woman, not a barbie. *thumbs up*
22nd-Mar-2006 05:11 pm (UTC)
Oh this is great Leela! I've been waiting for you to do a Luke/Mara, I just searched through your entries and found it. You drew Luke perfectly, and Mara looks just like one would picture her. I love the pair and I think you did an amazing rendition. You even did it in color pencil, a medium I've been using more and more as of late, ooooo I wish you could draw more Luke. XD
