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?
SvenjaLiv Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2011  Professional General Artist
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?
Steffel Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
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:
