Jagged Fel by SvenjaLiv Jagged Fel by SvenjaLiv
Jagged Fel, or Jag, is one of those characters that took a while to grow on me. But grow on me, he did. I don't like the canon depictions of him, so I took inspiration from Wedge Antilles (whom Jag is said to resemble "around the eyes and nose") and Ewan McGregor. Why Ewan? Because Jag is Wedge's nephew and Ewan is nephew to Denis Lawson, the actor who played Wedge. Yeah.

Don't really think he really looks like either of them, but then, that wasn't the point. I was going for a stern soldier expression, and some handsomeness, and I think it turned out pretty okay that way. It's not exactly a smooth drawing either, but I thought the sketchier style fits the character better.

This is my second attempt at drawing him (you can see the first shot at [link] but please do bear in mind that this was several years ago!)

So here we are, the handsome, dark-haired son of Syal Antilles and Soontir Fel, ace pilot and master of the dry humour. Hope you like him!

Media: Pencil on cartridge paper.
Time: 8 hours.
Dimensions: A5.
References: Shots of Wedge Antilles and Ewan McGregor.

I really like how you put this drawing together. excellent job! he gives me the impression that he is younger in this draw right out of the academy or something.

Thanks very much! Yeah, I'm thinking he might be about eighteen in this picture, give or take a year or two. Thanks for the comment!

Jag! :excited: One of my favorite EU characters. I'm so glad you decided to draw him and I'm very pleased with your take on him, it's representative of how I've pictured him. Well done! :clap:

HA!! :clap::clap::clap: I KNEW this would be awesome when you mentioned you'd be hinting at Wedge in the features--now I know you also used MacGregor, it's even more impressive! :clap::clap: You did a fabulous job of blending them into a unique face--both of them are there, but it's a very unique melange of them both! Awesome job! I love his sort of "mission face" here--that kind of expressionless expression that all fighter pilots get when going into battle (look at pics of pilots in any military--this is definitely "mission face!")--gosh, what a terrific portrait! :clap::clap: :+favlove:

Yay! Thanks very much! I got kind of disillusioned with the canon pictures, the books described him as handsome, hence this. :D I'm glad that you could pick up on the "mission face" thing. From what I've read about him, that kind of summarises his character best. Jag's smiles seem to be reserved for Jaina. :aww: I did look at a few pilot pictures - although Google mostly yielded Bush, eeep! :giggle: Anyway, thanks a million, I'm glad you like it! Thanks for the :+fav: as well, I appreciate it! :hug:

You're quite welcome--and this is SO very much Jag to me! :nod: It's a wonderful representation of him (and I'd LOVE to see you do one of his "smiles for Jaina," too! **shameless hinting** :p :giggle: )! :clap::clap:

Thank you! I'm actually thinking very hard about doing a Jag/Jaina piece... although that's going to be a while yet. But it will be done eventually! :D

Wow, finally someone drew Jag! It looks great, I agree that the stern expresion characterizes him. And since there are like two pictures of him you can take inspiration from whoever you want ;)
Great job! :clap:

Yay, thank you! Well, of all the characters introduced in NJO he was my favourite one, so I had to draw him. I'm glad it works for you. Thanks very much for the :+fav: too!

Very good. It's not often that one sees images of EU characters. I think this is a very good image of Jag, making him stern and tough looking but indeed more handsome than canon pictures I've seen. Excellent portrait. I was very amused to hear about your reason to use Ewan McGregor as a reference. :)

Well, I suppose book characters are always harder to draw! Thanks a million, "stern and tough, yet handsome" is exactly what I was going for and I'm thrilled that I seem to have succeeded! As for Ewan, yeah. It kind of makes sense, in a weird sort of way. :giggle: Thanks very much!
