The two characters are jedi Jaina Solo (daughter of Han and Leia) and head of state of the Empire Jagged Fel.
The scene is set during the Fate of the Jedi series and shows an intimate moment between the newly engaged lovers, who are facing some difficulties consiliating their duty and love life.
I've been working on this piece for some time now, but the release of the official back cover of Apocalypse featuring both of them, inspired me to hurry up and finish it.
I used official pictures as references for the face features espacially those from the Japanese covers (exmples here or here). I hope I managed the likeness well enough. I gave Jag longer hair because recent books described him as wearing them that way.
As always the technique includes lot of photoshoping, morphing, a bit of digital painting and lot of tweaking.
A big thanks to =SvenjaLiv for the advices she's given me through the creating process.
Jagged Fel: With everything going on right now, I hope that our engagement hasn't come at a bad time.
Jaina Solo: You having second thoughts?
Jagged Fel: No! It's just...
Jaina Solo: What?
Jagged Fel: Married life won't be easy for us, will it Jaina?
Jaina Solo: Probably not, no. But it will be...interesting. Might even be fun.
Jagged Fel: (smiling) I love you.
Jaina Solo: (smiling) I know. (Kisses him)
Simply amazing and if Jag really looks like that then ... O M G <3 Jaina should never leave him lol.
Thank you for sharing this with us, it is indeed breathtaking.
