Star Wars: TCG - Mara Jade by AnthonyFoti Star Wars: TCG - Mara Jade by AnthonyFoti
Painted over a year and a half ago, this was my first Mara Jade piece for FFG's Star Wars games. It actually appeared in the Beta book for those few who were able to grab one, but now with the Balance of the Force expansion she's finally in the LCG. I still remember reading the Thrawn trilogy when they came out, and she's been one of my favorite characters ever since.

my favourite star wars character. well done!
DBjc135 Featured By Owner Edited Mar 26, 2018
I still hope Disney brings her back into the story.  A slim chance at this point but one that is worth hoping for considering how good of a character Mara is.  I really like how you have ready to move like this; she could be ready to attack, move to another ledge, or do something else and any of them would be believable.

That's the strong female character i hoped to see in the new Star Wars movies but instead we get Rey Mary Sue and Rose

Ohhh...just discovered this one in another user's favorites and HAD to come in and gush (and :+fav:!!): fabulous depiction of our Mara as the Emperor's Hand!  This is just how I picture her, in covert operations--hovering above the intended victim, waiting for just the right moment and then dropping feather light to her feet and striking...  GREAT background--love the rain, the way the wind is pulling at her robe and the glow of the surrounding lights and her weapon...just WOW!!  Love-love-love it!

THIS IS AMAZING. I love Mara Jade, and the color scheme here is, like, my two favorite colors. May I use this as desktop wallpaper?

I'm somewhat interested in actually reading the Thrawn trilogy but I'm afraid it will be a completely Nolanified version of Star Wars.
BrigadierDarman Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2015
One of many reasons the old EU will be superior to the Disney canon.
anno78 Featured By Owner Edited Nov 18, 2016
Interesting Fact:  When Disney signed the deal to take on the Star Wars franchise, part of the agreement was that the EU be kept as canon.  Disney then decided that the EU was too much hassle, and went against the agreement, creating their own version of post Return of the Jedi events.  If they had kept to the agreed plan, Episode VII would be very different.
BrigadierDarman Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2016
Sigh... :no: Hell, if they had gone the route of telling stories like Rogue One and never bothered with a sequel trilogy, things would've been better off.
anno78 Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2016
I know.  Lucas had originally planned to do 9 movies, but then decided 6 was enough, as the films main character was Anakin Skywalker.  Yep, the films followed the rise, fall, and then redemption of Anakin, and the events of Return of the Jedi ended the tale.  

Alas, Rogue One is altering established canon as well;
 In Episode IV the Death Star is meant to fire for the first time, destroying Alderaan (the dialogue makes this very clear).  In the latest Rogue One trailer the Death Star is shown firing at a planet which the rebels are on.  Plus, the first trailer shows the superlaser being installed, when at the end of Episode III the weapon is shown as being constructed already in place.

It also seems that the upcoming Han Solo film will alter things as well.  Disney is making its mark.
BrigadierDarman Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2016
Yeah. :/

With the Han Solo movie, if they take out one certain thing, many fans will be upset I think.
anno78 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2016
The main danger with Han's backstory is that it has been established using novels and comics.  Disney have already shown what they think of the EU novels and comics, so it is inevitable that they will change things to suit their needs.

Disney seems to be focusing in drawing in a younger audience, kids who will think Disney that has always owned the Star Wars franchise.  To ensure this the Disney execs will do all they can to ensure this, even if it means risking the ire of diehard fans.  It's theirs now, so they will do what want, including establishing new backstories for characters.
BrigadierDarman Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2016
Yeah. :/ I won't be too shocked if they take out the stuff of Han being an Imperial cadet at one point and the circumstances of how he meets Chewie, and as a result, face some more various backlash.

What if.....Mara Jade was in the story but was killed by Kylo Ren...and is Reys mother?
BrigadierDarman Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2015
Old material would still be better. Kylo is just a rehash of Jacen Solo....

I was expecting for Han to yell Jacen.
