Star Wars: Union by TereseNielsen Star Wars: Union by TereseNielsen
This was great fun to do! It's a mixed media piece.
I used a gouache-wash technique in the background to get the stained glass feel.
The two panels on the side have gold leaf textured into them.
Luke and Mara Jade are painted with acrylic and colored pencil.

This was used on the cover of Dark Horse's graphic novel called Star Wars: Union

*** 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.

Wow. How scary is this? I was just musing about how, during my marriage/moving house, I somehow lost this graphic novel among many others of its kind. And here it is ^^ It's so beautiful, and now I'm mourning its loss even more. Straight out to buy a replacement tomorrow!

Eeee!!!! You did the work?! Please tell me you designed her dress too! o.o I had to borrow the library's copy but if I get my hands on it, I'd totally love it if you autographed the cover for me! :D

The nitpicker in me has to say that Mara Jade had Anakin's lightsaber at this point, so the blade should be blue. :lol: But it's an excellent piece of work, very beautiful.

I remember reading Union when I was 12. I still love it as much as I ever did.

I love all of your work. I became a fan when you painted the Elven Ranger for Magic the Gathering. The female one where she is kneeling on one knee with her hand on her forehead and her head back. AWESOME piece. . .
