This drawing was an accident. I meant to draw someone else altogether, but then he looked like Anakin Solo, so I went with that. So here they are - Anakin Solo and Tahiri Veila, two of my favourite SW characters and one of my favourite pairings. The title comes from a quote from Ikrit, in Conquest
:"Remember - together, you are stronger than the sum of your parts."
So I wanted to illustrate that. On the bottom left you have Tahiri as a little girl, dressed in Tusken garb and riding on her pet bantha. On the right is Anakin as a boy, tinkering with something on the Millennium Falcon
. And in the middle are Anakin and Tahiri in the middle of their game where they jump and fall together, using the Force to slow each other down.
Not many references this time - I'm trying to move away from using them. Anakin is based on the various covers of NJO books, because the guy I was drawing ended up looking like that. Like I said, I didn't mean to draw him.
Everything else is mostly freehand. I did use my own hands as a reference when drawing their clasped ones, and let me tell you, it's not easy to draw while holding hands with yourself.
But yeah, that's pretty much it.
Disclaimer: I have no idea if that's what bantha cubs look like; I couldn't find a reference so it's pretty much made up.Media:
