One thing I love about Star Wars is that they keep the original cover artistic style even with the new movies.

Great picture. The exile looks remarkably like the canon one from the Tor game. The only real problem I see is an Imperial Star Destroyer in orbit. Shouldn't it be the Ravager?

Great pick but her saber should be cyan and not green, but that's just me being picky! I love the pic!

EPIC PICTURE ! its very great !

but her lightsaber need more color :) but i love it its one of the best pictures of the exile

The Exile and Revan are the best and most powerful star wars characters.

and Kotor 1 & 2 are my favorite games of all time :)

Okay first VERY nice art I love the pose and the ships very good job. Now the bad the hands they are WAY too close togther for a good grip. For most sword styles the dominant hand is near the blade and the weaker hand is near the pommel cap or end of the hilt the part you grip. The reason is to create a lever motion with the dominant hand pushing while the weaker pulls creating more power. In this picture it looks like her left is dominant while right is weaker but the fingers are so close that their grips will get in the way of each other.
Outside of that nice posture if she is left handed she would bring it to her left shoulder for a power swing with right foot forward and left back to be able to put her hips into it. A good idea for potential or even action pics is to plan out what they are doing in real life and feel how it sits with the body even if the moves are beyond you the basic motions and postions are not and that understanding will help.

Oh, wow!! This would be right at home on a classic cover! I love how much you've managed to communicate with this image - it tells a story by itself of the Exile as the General throwing herself into battle. Your detail is exquisite and everything about this has been crafted with so much care and attention. Your colour range is vibrant and dramatic, and so much about her is so well communicated - her hair, the look in her eyes and on her face, the way her robes sway as she throws herself into a combat dance, and your use of perspective giving us such a fantastic sense of scale with the destruction in the background and the enemy right above (or reinforcements?). I love your careful attention in the way her hand grips the hilt of the saber and the strong glow of the blade. Against everything, here's the Exile at the centre of battle, charging in!! It's awesome, and communicates your vision and the emotion of the scene very well. This is very cool :) Thanks for sharing!!!

A very beautiful and classically rendered illustration of a personal favourite character of mine indeed! This piece would be right at home on the cover of a Star Wars Bantam Spectra novel back in the day. Magnificent work:)

So what did you think of the Exile's death?
DuloNomaD Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
They could have like put her in the game, but it looks like it was easier for them (lucasarts/bioware) to kill her, which is really bad. From what I concluded from Kotor I and II I think that she was the most hurt and sad Jedi, ever. The whole story was sad about her, but she pulled trough at the end (officially she is Light Side like Revan). After SWTOR came out I went to search for info about how the story-line progressed and was angry when that "Lord Scourge" or whatever told your Jedi char, that she and Revan were captured and the Exile killed.

Glad they made the exile a canon female. :D

They can't be serious. Tell me they aren't serious. After everything he did, after the Taris, Dantooine, Tatooine, Kashyyk, Manaan, Korriban, Planet of the Beach Junkyard, and finally the Star Forge... after slaughtering armies, surviving everything, Revan just dies. And then the Exile went through all her shit, went out and joined him in his plan to save the Republic, slaying three Sith Lords single handedly...just for it all to go FUBAR and her to die. Definition: Lame.

Great work, but shouldn't there be Sith Interdicter class starships instead of Imperial Star destroyers. love the Sith fighters though. the exile has a great look and design all around.

Though I prefer M!Exile myself, this is still REALLY badass :D Good job!
Tarisian-Ale Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2011
Veeery nice! This is the female Exile I love, a tough, independent woman who can smack-talk generals, defy Jedi Masters, and save the galaxy. Right up there with Mara Jade as one of the most badass female characters in Star Wars.

She's here to kick Sith ass and recite snarky dialogue. And she's all out of snarky dialogue. :)

awesome job.

I love this picture! The character looks beautiful and the background is also very well composed.
DynoSwagged Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2011
The exile was a pointless story.

Your awesome picture makes it a bit more tolerable.
Great work.
Leppardra Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011
And did I get that last part wrong! The Exile went by herself into the Unknown Regions to look for Revan while her comrades stayed behind to help rebuild the Jedi Order. However, I still wonder what happened to her. If she died, as she eventually must have, how did she die? Was it of old age, natural causes, or of illlness? Was she killed in an accident, a ship crash, or intentionally by someone else? Did she fall victim to the Yuuzhan Vong? Or did Abeloth get hold of her? So many questions. :hmm:
I'm still working on that story. I've already got too many pieces. Now, in the fashion of Tolkien, I suppose I'll have to embed a great deal of humane stuff like child abuse, just to keep people hooked.

Yuuzhan Vong might well be descendants of the True Sith. Who knows? I'll continue digging around and see what I can come up with.
Leppardra Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2011
Beautiful picture. From what I know of the Jedi Exile, she was a General who survived a catastrophic battle but came away with a Force wound, which meant she carried the psychic imprint of that battle. She was exiled for mysterious reasons and went on to find other Force-users and create her own traveling Jedi Order. She and her Order went into the Unknown Regions to search for Revan and were never heard from again. Kinda makes me wonder if the Yuuzhan Vong got them. :(

The pose, the background, the lighting, it all works very well, great work! Instant fave! :jarksaber:

Absolutely gorgeus! I really admire your style. Did you color it and then finish it in Photoshop?
The good thing is that you took care about background - I never have enough will to do so. ;) Great work!

Just like I want her to be=)

I don't know the official story, but I imagine the exile was a girl. There sure seemed to be a lot more content to the game when I played through as a girl.
moberemk Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2010
Officially Revan was a Light Side Male, while the Exile was a Light Side Female. Suggested to be blonde too.

More importantly great picture! Great detail and a beautiful background.
DarthJudicare Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
the background is very beautiful.

Exactly how I imagined the Exile to be. Brilliant artwork there. Fav'ed <3
Zackarra Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Amazing picture you got here. The detail blows my mind! Great game that was.
You mind if I use this picture for ideas in my KOTOR3 book? She resembles the blonde Jedi Exile in my own fiction very well.

The Exil is really an intersting character and it's a great picture. ^^

Very impressive likeness! Her expressions betrays something of immense pain she's used to hiding and her amazing inner strength. Her pose makes it clear she fights to the end. One of the best pictures I've encountered on this website!

One of the best pictures with the exile. But the Ravager is too similar to Imperial Star Desroyer.

It might well be the Ravager, which looked distinctly ISD shaped.

Either way, fantastic work!
