Tahiri Veila Sith Apprentice by saith100 Tahiri Veila Sith Apprentice by saith100
This is yet another interpretation of Tahiri Veila from the Star Wars Expended Universe.
This piece is set during Legacy of the force when Tahiri is working for Jacen as her Sith apprentice.

I've alreay done 2 fan arts featuring Tahiri, but I've been inspired when seing the cover for Fate of the jedi : Conviction starring miss Veila herself (you can see the cover here) wich I used as a reference for an older Tahiri (she's in her early thirties). I've also been using the interpretation from the Japanese cover of The final prophecy (you can see it here) wich is my favorite interpretation of her as a teenage. I hope I manage to make a credible job at unifying both.

I was so exited about this that I couldn't wait any longer to post it, but I might do changes later.

Don't hesitate to give full critique people.

She's looking really gorgeous here... and for some reason I look at her and think "Now where have I seen the model/actress before?"
I like the contrast between the blue-tinted background and the areas that are tinted red by her lightsabre (yes, we all know the blade is way too long).
Lighting looks good. I will echo what someone else said about the scars not quite standing out enough.
All in all, I love this pic :)

Side note - the Japanese cover of "The Final Prophecy" is the pic that I referenced the most when I drew her too.

I am a huge fan of Star Wars.
After the comics, books! And it's frustrating to not see the characters!
So thank you for drawing Tahiri! This is excellent, we have everything in her look : doubt and vengeance!
Thank you to you for all your work!
This is amazing!
Go on :)

Once agan, very nicely done! However, you say, "Tahiri is working for Jacen as her Sith apprentice". Jacen is a man, not a woman, so the sentence should read, "Tahiri is working for Jacen as his Sith apprentice". :nod:

Oh my, this is gorgeous. The scars really look like they belong there.

Great job, one of my favorite females in the newer books, very good job. She looks very close to how i imagined her.

THIS is the Tahiri that I can see killing the dear admiral. I agree the saber is bit off, but the posture and expression is just perfect for me. Great Job!

I didn't like how they portray Tahiri during the Legacy of the Force story.

Looks like Daala... with darker makeup. Ahhh, those blondes :p

i aggree with above comments mainly about lightsaber and scars and i it would feel even more like a sith if you could increase the yellow contrast on her eyes
Ryua Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
That's awesome. The only thing that stands out as not quite right to me is her saber. Either that's a crazy long blade, or the angle of her arm is off. I quite like how you've done her scars though, they actually look like they belong there, if you know what I mean.

Really nice, but i'm not at this part of Legacy for the moment >.<

Really nice interpretation! Definietly looks a lot like how the artist has portrayed her on the new cover! Awesome work
taupin121 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2010
Good job but there is something wrong with the light saber... I don't know what :/
DarthJudicare Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I like it. She is very well made, I like the red lightsaber shows that she is a sith apprentice, I like her expression: the dark expression, I like her clothes, it ressembles a uniform.
May be, she is in a ship.
fireproof78 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2010
It looks very cool. The glow is well done in highlighting her body, but the angle of the blade seems a little off to me. That might be just me, though.
The marks on her forehead may need a little more distinction, unless there are supposed to look like scars. They seem more prominent in the book cover.
Overall, good work!
