Star Wars: Rebirth by TereseNielsen Star Wars: Rebirth by TereseNielsen
I had many requests for more Star Wars stuff so here's another. We have Luke looking a bit older accompanied by a very pregnant Jedi... Mara Jade. Many people couldn't tell on the book cover version that she was pregnant because the type went right over her tummy.

Painted traditionally with acrylic, oil and colored pencil and a few squirts with the airbrush.

I'm currently working on 3 other Star Wars pieces. Just finished a Boba Fett piece, now working on Darth Talon and will finish up with a piece featuring Luke in his battle armour.

Is anyone going to the big Europe Star Wars celebration??

*** 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.

Great picture! Is this a cover of a book? If it is, I'm pretty sure I own it and it's lying around somewhere.

Spoilers man, spoilers.

Not sure if it was intentional or not but Luke has this "I could chop your head off and not care at all." look on his face methinks.

Well, he's fighting Yuzhaan Vong. Of course he wouldn't care.

AAH. No way; you did this cover art? I only just got this book out to reread! I love how you depict Mara. She looks perfect! I am in awe.
