I LOVE this pic-it's so indicative of the (fan-implied) relationship between these two.

Again, I've got a great song to describe this great picture:

Summer In The City-The Loving Spoonful

[Verse 1]
Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
All around, people looking half-dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

[Chorus]
But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come on, come on, and dance all night
Despite the heat, it'll be alright
And babe, don't you know it's a pity
The days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city

[Verse 2]
Cool town, evenin' in the city
Dressin' so fine and lookin' so pretty
Cool cat, lookin' for a kitty
Gonna look in every corner of the city
'Til I'm wheezin' like a bus stop
Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop

[Chorus]
But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come on, come on, and dance all night
Despite the heat, it'll be alright
And babe, don't you know it's a pity
The days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city

[Bridge]

[Verse 3]
Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
All around, people looking half-dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

[Chorus]
But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come on, come on, and dance all night
Despite the heat, it'll be alright
And babe, don't you know it's a pity
The days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city

The highest that I got in my Home country Namibia last summer, wast at least 42 degrees celsius. I feel like we're about to get even more hotter this oncoming summer in southern hemisphere.

Can't wait to see this in color! Looks fine as is, but color would make it even better.

Awesome!
You did a good job with the sweat detail.
Kinda feel sorry for those two. That heat must be unbearable. :(

Nicely done :)  Coruscant must be having a heat wave :)

Even here in Finland, the heat has been on for last two weeks, even though last Saturday had some raining moments.

Ahsoka's top and Barriss' hair really sell the heat here.
I really like these images of Barrissoka just in everyday life scenes. I believe the style is referred to as "slice of life" if I'm not mistaken.

Thanks for participating in the art jam! I really like this entry. Well done :)

Thanks! I do love to draw these slice of life type of drawings for them.

Me living in Houston, I know exactly how they feel.
Nice, fresh cold breeze is what I need to loose off the heat.

When even Ahsoka had that warm, I truly feel sorry for Barriss...
