Star Wars: TCG - Mara Jade, The Emperor's Hand by AnthonyFoti Star Wars: TCG - Mara Jade, The Emperor's Hand by AnthonyFoti
And here is my second Mara Jade piece, painted much more recently. You can find both of them in the Balance of the Force expansion set (www.fantasyflightgames.com/edg... ), which will also add a new 2v2 multiplayer feature.

Hi there,
I’m involved with the 501st Legion which is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate.

The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work.

Firstly, I would like to ask you if you wouldn’t mind me using your depiction of Mara Jade from the Star Wars card game as the basis for a new costume for use within the 501st Legion?

The Legion has very strict costume development criteria, and I will need to develop a full submission outlining the costume build, components used etc etc.

One of the requirements is to have a new costume approved is that the character appears on or in an officially authorized Star Wars publication, ie The Star Wars card game.

Secondly, the other criteria is that there are full body front/back/side references to the costume. Therefore I was wondering if you may still have any concept sketches of the character you may be willing to provide me in my quest to bring this character to life.

I'm after a full sleeve length costume as I have a full sleeve tattoo, and need a costume like this to cover my tattoo.

If a fee &/or usage agreement is required for me to use them, I’m very willing to discuss this with you.

Many thanks
Sallie

Hey, that sounds awesome!

While I don't have the thumbnails around anywhere for her outfit design, I can sketch up a basic turnaround for you in the next few days.  No fee or anything required, except for the fact that you absolutely have to show it to me when you're done.

Oh wow, so awesome. Thanks.

I will absolutely keep you updataed with the material selections, build progress and everything.

I originally fell in love with the cover art from the book, choices of one, which was drawn by Daryl Mandryk, and doing all my other research for a full length sleeve versiin I stumbled on your version as well.

I love it, and as I said earlier I need concept sketches / artwork from an original Mara Jade artist who did official work authorised by Lucas Films to have the costume approved.

Im so excited, thank yoy thank you thank you.

My direct email is

Thanks
Sallie

These are very cool. I really like the perspective of only seeing the Emperor's single wrinkled hand. It gives the Emperor this otherworldly feeling, like he's that far above all the other mere mortals in the universe.  Mara's posturing position adds to this.

Her expression is hard to read, almost as if she's conflicted, which is probably not likely at that point in her career but it does hint at her future.

Please forgive my ramblings, awesome work.

I think this really captures her persona at this point -- her rapt attention to the emperor's every word; her incredible intensity and devotion...

The detail is also exquisite -- in how both her posture and facial expression portrays her mood; the the perfect setting, even the emperors hand.

I love this!

Beautiful work man! Hey out of curiosity, how long does it take you to do a piece like this (including thumbnails, revisions if any, etc)? Thanks!

I tend to break my days up so I can work on several pieces at a time, but if you add it all up an illustration like this probably takes around 15 hours. A good chunk of that is spent doing the thumbnails, color studies and the sketch.

She dies like 35 years into the EU -- that's plenty of time.

Is that how old she was when she died?

No. She died 35 years AFTER the Battle of Yavin. She was easily into her mid-forties, early thirties. Granted, Force Users usually live twice the length of normal sentient creatures in Star Wars, but she didn't exactly die suddenly.

Oh! And still, I thought it was a pointless plot move imho. And that just compounds on the timeline. I feel like they're trying to compress waaaay to much stuff into a short time-span.

This reminds me of the scene between Anakin and Mace Windu (probably spelled both of those wrong) in the third movie when Annie (kid name lol) fought him and cut his hands off...
