The First Farewell - 'Then and Now' variant cover. by MidoriNoHonoo The First Farewell - 'Then and Now' variant cover. by MidoriNoHonoo
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

Quinn Shara, a Force-sensitive teenager, struggles with the monotony of life on a backwater world, she craves a greater meaning in life as the rest of the Galaxy passes her by, she may well find that meaning however, as she crosses paths with Isabelle Devon, the leader of a fledgling rebel group. Will the ambitious young girl seize the opportunity to finally take charge of her destiny, and pursue her dream of becoming a Jedi?

The First Farewell - Page One

--

Another Variant cover for The First Farewell, my ongoing Star Wars OC comic, and also an opportunity to draw Quinn being cute as hell! :la: 

The theme of this cover is one of self-reflection, as an older Quinn passes her younger self, the older Quinn looks back with a warm, reassuring smile, as if to tell the young girl that one day she'll go on to do amazing things, despite her humble origins, where as the younger Quinn views her older self with astonishment, almost disbelief that she'll ever amount to anything, let alone craft a legacy worth remembering. That's my interpretation anyway, maybe you get something different from it? If so feel free to share. :meow:

I wanted to keep things very simple with this one, a basic background and colour scheme, almost exclusively pastel pink, a colour significant to Quinn as it reflects Da'hren's atmospheric phenomena, it's also just a gorgeous colour in my opinion. The background is very simple, so as not to detract from the the feel of the piece, the gas giant J'hen, and the stars belond, the stars are a little annoying to do as I dot them individually with a white Gel pen, but I feel it's worth the effort. 

Overall I'm really happy with how this turned out, honestly I've been unable to draw for so long I was anxious that I'd be out of practice, it feels good to be back, and especially to draw my baby again! XD Anyway as ever I hope ya'll enjoy, and feedback is greatly appreciated! :heart:

Gaaaah, this is too precious! Gosh dangit, Quinn is too adorable.

I love the expressions in this, her past self looks so bewildered and innocent, whereas her older self looks kind and far more wise than she was in the past.

You're posting things more, YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!! :D :D :D :D *Happy dances* *Hugs*

How are you feeling?

It'd be almost interesting if the older Quinn met her younger self.  Maybe as like a Force Vision or something.  Idk, I just think it'd be super cool to see that.

I think it'd be an interesting idea for a dream sequence of sorts. :meow:

Oh, but who has that dream?  The younger, or the older?

The older, it makes more sense, her doubt manifests itself as her teenage self, and she has to reassure the young girl, and by doing so reassures herself.

True, but you could also have a Mortis-like vision that Ahsoka had of the future, warning of a bad path as well.  Multiple possibilities :3

I found the three people interesting... anyways, that's not the point.  Point is, I think it'd be really cool seeing those two, even in a dream sequence, maybe having to overcome a challenge together.  Like some sort of demon made from her own doubt, idk
