Anakin and Ahsoka looking at the stars...this VERY ORIGINAL idea suddenly came into my mind and I had to draw it!
I have to say it was more difficult than I had thought; I had several troubles in making them look like they were actually laying on the grass, with getting the right perspective, anatomy and such, but in the end I guess it turned out...kinda right?
NOW IT'S TIME FOR THE DEEP MEANINGS
At the beginning it was supposed to be a more light hearted pic, but then I just thought that Anakin isn't the kind of guy who'd just relax for a damn moment in his life and stop thinking about depressing things... haha no, I'm quite exaggerating now, but we who have read our beloved Matthew Stover's novelization of Revenge Of The Sith know very well that the thing that impresses Anakin the most is the fact that even stars burn out.
So my take at the stargazing subject from his POV, was that this is just another reminder of the moment in which he saw this dead star and realized that all things die (which as you know, is his main concern...). So the reason he has that worried/sad expression, as well as the tense position, relates to this.
I wanted him to look like he's not feeling comfortable at all, or he's already ready to get up at any moment...while Ahsoka is just enjoying the moment!! :> I like how her smile came out.
Also, I realized I hadn't drawn them since that fanart I uploaded at the beginning of February, which means MORE THAN A MONTH!!! Aaagh, it's time I come back to some brotherly pics with them. I HAVE IDEAS!! :'D
Well, I hope you enjoy it!
PS: No seriously...why the hell do I always write SO MUCH in my descriptions?? I mean, it's just a stupid drawing with my two favorite guys looking at the stars and look at how philosophical I got...I just can't help putting some strange meaning behind my stuff lol!
Anakin: Ahsoka, when I was young age, Obi-Wan told me a story about the stars.
Ahsoka: What did he say?
Anakin: Our galaxy has billions of stars and every person carves their story in them.
Ahsoka: Including us?
Anakin: Yes. Every star has a special story of its own and if you are at peace, you can listen to them.
Ahsoka: Tell me another story about the stars.
Anakin: It's getting late, but okay. One more story.
"We're pals, right?"
"And we'll always be together, right?"
"Ahsoka... Let me tell you something that my Master told me... Look at the stars. The great Jedi of the past look down on us from those stars"
"Yes... So whenever you feel alone, just remember that those Jedi will always be there to guide you... And so will I"
Sadly, it didn't quite go like this...
Girl, how in the Force can you be so awesome? I love your art so much!! :')
I don't know if the "even stars burn out" is actually cannon anymore, (considering Disney has done away with the entire Expanded Universe ) but that fear that he had in the novelization really defined the character as a whole for me, both while he was a Jedi and a Darth.
Amazing what a over active mind can do!
thank you so much for this!!
Thoguh I think we'll hit his "breaking point" at some time in the next season of Clone Wars.
*fearing for Ashoka's safety*
But then first thing I thought of was the star gazing scene from The Lion King. "They say the great Jedi of the past look down on us from the stars." Could have been a nice bonding scene for Anakin and Ahsoka, and show that Anakin is worried about being disgraced because of his marriage.
It's so well written and adds so much to the characters! It's perfect.
And that's true, it would have been nice to introduce Anakin's death issues right from the start!
The dead star thing was absolutely great and would have been a nice moment to see in the movies.
Yes! In fact I was rather inspired by The Lion King, I gotta say
It's the classic of all the star gazing scenes, eheh!
Thank you very much for your comment!
