A detail from the Mara Jade STAR WARS card (see my gallery).

***UPDATE***

An alert fan :iconmothramonk: just notified me that I got Mara's eye color wrong. I just fixed it, sent it to TOPPS, and hopefully it'll make it in to the final set (the presses are rolling as we speak, they tell me).

This is awesome! If I ever get a chance to cosplay Mara Jade, I'm basing it off of this piece. Thanks for the incredible art!

Hi Adam,

Sideshow Collectibles has mentioned that they're working on a Mara Jae Premium Format/Maquette/Polystone statue based on your Mara Jade artwork. WOOHOOO!

*Ahem* anyway there is a thread on the Sideshow Freaks board about this and it has been brought up that Mara resembles Gemma Arterton.

When comparing a pic of Gemma Arterton from "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" she does have quite the resemblance.

What I'd like to know is who, if anyone, did you base Mara's likness on?

Thanks and I'm a big fan of your work!

I didn't base Mara off of any one person in particular.
Thank you for your kind words!

Happened to read the Neal Adams comments and I gotta say, you ARE the Neal Adams of our time. (Okey, maybe you and Alex Ross, but still :P)

beautiful! did you draw this from scratch? theres a similarity between her and Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine :D
AdamHughes's avatar
Well, I used some reference for the lighting, but I've never heard of Florence Welch...

(Googles the name)

Ah, I see the resemblance.

You're the best ever

In my studio (actually a room with my draw table and stuff) I have two walls full of your da drawings, to use for inspiration and all

Awesome, thanks

Btw I used to buy DC comics just to see your cover arts haha
Man your stuff really reminds me of Alphonse Mucha's work. I like the line quality and the way the movement directs your eye. Nice.
