Mandalore the Ultimate by TereseNielsen Mandalore the Ultimate by TereseNielsen
I wasn't familiar with Mr. Mandalore until asked to paint another illustration for the Star Wars minis packages.

Here's a little bit about what his life is about. "Madalore the Ultimate established his reputation as a brazen strategist who was capable of immense destruction. He led a merciless campaign in the Outer Rim Territories, authorizing the devastation of such planets as Cathar, and allowing his armies to sack the world of Althir. Even as the Republic began to respond to his aggressions, he continued to lead his Mandalorians with brutal efficiency. As the war escalated, Mandalore proved that he was willing to do anything to win his cause, even to the point of using nuclear devices to destroy entire cities."

I'm not sure if he uses "nuke-u-lar" devices or "nuclear" weapons... but either way he's a bad mo fo. : P

As for what mediums I used, I just stuck with acrylic and colored pencil on this one... I left the oil tucked away under my acrylic palette. Most likely it was dried out, and I was too lazy to squeeze out a new palette full.

*** I have archival PRINTS in stock of many of my works. Please feel free to send a note if there is a particular one that interests you.

Mandalore the Ultimate. The one who struck fear into the Republic, and the rest of the galaxy. My favorite Mand'alor. 'Let them burn'

Ok. What should I say. It's wonderful, I love it. But this guy not make me run. I have no fear, there's only... ... ...respect. He was a great Mand'alor. He has pushed the Old Republic to the edge of destruction and if there hasn't been Revan, he would have won the war.

He does sound hardass, doesn't he? And I bet he went out with a blaze of glory too.

Nice work. I want to know more about him now *looks up wookiepedia*

Didn't you misspell his name?
Misspelled or not, he looks dangerous.

TereseNielsen Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2009
Gee, I don't know. I didn't think so, but spelling isn't my strong point. Isn't it spelled the same as on SW's Wikia?

Mandalore!~~~ Aw man, the great-grandaddy of my favorite 'race' of SW! You did him beautifully! Love how there's some hints of Manda armor in there, and subsequently, the clones. :)
