Queen Mother by rurouni-jedi Queen Mother by rurouni-jedi
Colored version of last upload. I'm happy with almost everything except her eyes. :\ Ah, well, I'll get 'em next time.

Colored in photoshop

omg she's so pretty! I always picture her as a little girl from the books. man.. reading about the jedi kids getting in and out of trouble was always so much fun. like harry potter with lightsabers, morals and actual danger and 10 times the awesome. 

I'm just reading the young jedi books now and tenal ka just lost her arm in the book I'm reading. or the previous book... I've also read the books with jacen all grown up and the vong and have been trying to find the books that will fill in the gaps.

I love the gold cap ornament on her severed arm. That adds a great touch to it.

Tenel Ka, Jedi Knight and Queen Mother of the Hapes Consortium. :) (You'll only really know who she is if you're an uber-Star Wars nerd like me. XD)

The popular consensus is that she is quite beautiful. What I am focusing on is her face; she has such a sad and weathered visage, especially in her eyes. It seems that she is reminiscing on her past and all that has happened to her and those close to her, especially Jacen and Allana in such a short space of time. You convey real emotion, and I applaud that.

Thank you very much for your wonderful comment. I can imagine Tenel Ka aging ten years in the passage of one with what she went through with Jacen and Allana. A sad story indeed.

It reminds me so much of Elizabeth Tudor and all that she had to endure during her reign as Queen of England. Poor girl.

Gorgeous! :clap: Very "art-nouveau" in style, which so suits TK! Love the details--her headdress (reminds me of some of Padme's headpieces), the beautiful gown and cloak--your work on her rancor-tooth lightsaber hilt is stunning! Very very beautiful! :+fav:

That's a wonderful drawning of Tenel Ka. Her serious expression, her make-up, it's so beautiful!

I just love her hair, it's so perfect. :)

That dress looks incredible. Awesome shading, as well.

I don't know, though- I kind of like the eyes. She looks tired, but like she knows she has to plug on, which makes complete sense in her case. :D

Holy shit, dude! I totally dig the shading here. (re: You not being happy w/ the eyes -- the whites might need a little shading in the corners to match up with the rest of her kickass shading. Maybe that's the little thing that's missing?)

P.S. Totally ripped the idea of curls from your last piece. They added just that little something, so I tried it on my own, and it totally worked!

Rock on! I actually got ringlet the idea for my own art based off of some character from Tenjo Tenge... at least I think that's where it was from... I dunno, I collect random art from various sources and browse through it all for ideas. :)
