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

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
