SW - To The Stars by Renny08 SW - To The Stars by Renny08
This is a CLASSIC!!! Haha!! XD

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 :dummy:

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! :D

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!

Really wish there were some more scenes like that in Star Wars the Clone Wars. You captured the moment perfectly!

Ah yes, Matthew Stover's novelization, without a doubt one of favorite Star Wars books of all time. I loved his almost poetic style of writing.

I don't know if the "even stars burn out" is actually cannon anymore, (considering Disney has done away with the entire Expanded Universe :X) 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.

I SO see them ending up together in the end of The Clone Wars series... :XD: But seriously, nice picture. I love how Ankakin is all worried, and Ahsoka's just like, relax man, don't be so tense. I can see a whole episode where she tries to get him to calm down for a day XD and this is one part at the end.

I wondering who he's thinking of in this pic...if he looked to Ahsoka right then I bet he'd just be an emotionally unstable mess in front of her. I mean he's thinking that everything dies... He puts her life in danger almost every time they go on missions. And she's made heaps of enemies. What would that do to someone let alone him:(

I remember reading that scene from the novel about the dead star it really freaked Anakin out.

Thoguh I think we'll hit his "breaking point" at some time in the next season of Clone Wars.

I borrowed the RotS novel from a friend during a LotR retreat. It was much better than the movies, really got inside the characters' heads and explored motivations, showing how the Jedi walked right into Palpatine's trap. If they had given Anakin's character a bigger focus on death, maybe have the dead star scene in Phantom Menace, his fall would have been more tragic, and the whole "stop people from dying thing" have a deeper root than his mom dying.

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.

I agree with what you said, that book really IS amazing. :D
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 :D
It's the classic of all the star gazing scenes, eheh!
Thank you very much for your comment! :D
