SWC - Jaina and Jagged by SvenjaLiv SWC - Jaina and Jagged by SvenjaLiv
Valentine's Day gave me the idea to do a "Star Wars couples" series, because romance in the GFFA seems almost to require a certain amount of hate as well as love. :giggle: Ergo, in my head, it's perfect for a love-themed series. Clearly.

This is the first one: Jaina Solo and Jagged Fel. I love this pairing because with his calm professionalism, Jag is the perfect foil to Jaina and her hotheaded stubbornness. So here they are. Jag is holding a datapad with flight scores; #1 is "Fel", #2 is "Solo", the rest is gibberish. :blush: So yes, he beat her, which is the reason for her expression. :XD:

The quotes are from Ylesia, by Walter Jon Williams. One of my favourite J/J moments, and one which helped cement Jag into his position as one of my favourite characters.

Media: Photoshop and my tablet.
Time: ~15 hours.
References: Canon pictures for Jaina's Jedi outfit and Jag's uniform, although I changed the colours of both. Jaina's boots are based on Tycho's from the Rogue Squadron comics. The rest - faces, poses etc - are from my imagination.

Lineart: [link] <-- feel free to take it and colour it yourself, if you like.

Others in the Star Wars couples series:
:bulletpurple: Tahiri and Anakin
:bulletpurple: Tenel Ka and Jacen

Note: Don't take this and claim it's yours. If you want to use it anywhere, ask permission, and credit me in some form.

Star Wars belongs to George Lucas.

Thanks so much! That's great to hear. I meant to do more, but it's been shelved for now. Alas. But thank you!

Jaina's expression made me smile, even more so when I read the description. Very fitting. I also like their poses quite a bit. But why are the colors so flat?

Thank you! :D The expressions were fun. I left the colours very basic because that was pretty much the point... the lines are pretty detailed so shading would only take away from them. I was going more for a comic-y style than a painting, y'know?

Ah, I see.
That's probably the reason why I'm not even trying to do a comic. Leaving something without shading makes me itchy. ;P

Yeah, see, I tried shading on the other comic-y things I did and it ended up taking me forever, so I tried something simpler. And it still ended up taking me ages. :giggle: Oh well!

My favourite character and her boyfriend... what's not to love? :D
Best bit has to be Jaina's expression. You did an awesome job on the whole thing, but especially her face :hug:

They're one of my favourite couples as well. I had fun with the expressions, so I'm glad you like Jaina's. :D Thanks! :glomp:

Their break-up was the worst part of the Dark Nest travesty... actually, the whole damn set of books was an exercise in ruining characters, but turning Jaina and Jag against each other was just so very wrong. They didn't need that break-up. It didn't serve the overall saga in any way.

Oh yeah, I'll stop ranting and just say "You're welcome" :huggle:

Oh, I don't blame you for ranting. At all. I still do it myself at times, so I totally understand. I didn't actually get through DNT... couldn't read those books. They confused me no end. :P

I wasn't confused by them... I was appalled at the character derailment

The whole thing about Killik Joiners just felt... not Star Wars to me.

Yeah, same here. They could be a major species or whatever in some other sci-fi series, but now SW.

Love it. There needs to be more Jaina and Jag pictures out in this world and they need to get married instead of engaged then end of relationship

I'm glad to hear it! And I totally agree. More J/J is always a good thing. I really don't know WHAT canon is doing with them, it all seems so silly... I mean, at this stage everyone knows they'll end up together anyway. :roll: Ah well.

GAH!! GREAT!! I love that you see this pair as I do--the "oil and water"--but shake it up enough and it forms a smooth, coherent emulsion... lol! I love the idea of a series like this: Han and Leia, Luke and Mara, Wedge and Iella--all great subjects, and we can't wait to see more! I adore their expressions--Jag is very calm and matter-of-fact, while Jaina looks interminably annoyed!--perfect for the situation, and so IC for them both! :nod: Nice heart with the quotes--I love it!

SO TRUE. I couldn't have put it better. I love these two. And it's great to hear that you like this. Their expressions were a lot of fun to draw; it's one of my favourite things about this style, the fact that it allows you to really play with expressions.

I am really enjoying this series so far -- working on Anakin and Tahiri right now. I don't know if I'll do Han and Leia; I'm leaving them to last, because I've done SO many drawings of them already that it seems fair to give the others a go first! :giggle:

Really excellent lines on this one!

"romance in the GFFA seems almost to require a certain amount of hate as well as love." XDD So true. And, occasionally, so annoying. Jag and Jaina's friendly rivalry always seemed to work, though.

Thanks! It turns out that lineart is actually quite a lot of fun... I hadn't expected it to be, but it's a good surprise, so!

Hah, I love J/J... at least before canon started tearing them apart for no good reason, just to drag out the inevitable. :roll: But they were definitely my favourite thing to come out of the NJO. Especially when they hung out with Kyp. So much fun. :D
