Star Wars: Mara Jade Skywalker

DESIGN EDIT - June 30th, 2013 ..:: Made a few minor tweeks to the design.
Added a new collar and new boots. Original upload can be found here [link]

"Didn't we say everything we needed the say with the first one? Must we go tropical?" - Kevin Smith (commenting on the need to make a sequel to Beetlejuice)

This quote about sums up how I feel about the announcements of the new Star Wars films. Don't get me wrong, I'll a go watch the crap out of it when they hit the cinema's.... however, there is only one trilogy ("and it ain't of the King, it's of the f*cking Jedi" - Clerks II).

Anyway, I was checking out the Star Wars website and I came upon this fantastic cover art of the EU book "Choices of One" about Mara Jade Skywalker ([link] and having some time to spare I thought I would make my very own replica of the cover. I once again used Candice Swanepoel as de model (sorry, got a thing for her). The background isn't mine, except for the fact that I photoshopped it a little, so credit for that goed to the original designer. As always, it's done in photoshop and I hope you all like it.

ps: I know about the troopers in the back, yet as for the design it self it didn't bother me. Couldn't find a good storm trooper version.

That Star Destroyer looks like it's going to crash into the planet. Very cool design of Mara Jade. Nice piece of artwork.

Love this cool pic. Been a big fan of Mara Jade since they introduced her in the Thrawn Trilogy. I've read the book 'Choices of One' (and every Star Wars novel for that matter) and I thought it was a  great read.
Love that lightsaber design too. Is it your design and what inspired it?
There's a book called Sacrifice in the Legacy of the Force series with another cool Mara Jade image. You should check that one out.

Skywalker? Guess that's what happens when the Jedi renounce celibacy... :D

Celibacy was never a requirement for the Jedi, technically...

And yet, in the days of the old republic, they never formed attachments.

This definitely would have made a better cover for Choices of One!

Wow! Hope to see her in the next star wars movie!

Wait a minute Mara Jade shouldn't have Clone troopers behind her, she was born 35 years after the events on Star Wars episode 3 by that time the Clone troopers; their name, genetic template and armor were all retired by that time.

I know I sound like a total nerd but this just can't be

Actually Mara Jade was born around the end of episode 3(roughly) and she is actually about the same age as Luke. The book 'Choices of One' was about how they 'almost' crossed paths just after the Episode 4 events. It was the second book based on that. The other was called Allegiance.
