I'm gonna sound like a totaly downer, so i apologize ahead of time...
Roan Fel:: Its okay...he looks like a nice grandpa... Neutral
Mara Jade: I don't know...kind of on the fence about this one. She kind of reminds more of Jaina, actually. Her face should kind of be more pointed, like on Sacrifice cover.
Lumiya: I really like this pic of her. Totally fierce.
Luke: I like this one alot.
Jaina: Can't even begin to tell you how much I hate this picture.To me it doesn't even look like her. Her face looks all wrong. And is that cleavage? Maybe its just because she's older, i dont know.
Jacen: Looks like a beady-eyed freak.
Ganner: Why?
Krayt: Very cool pic.
Corran: Looks like those Asian warrior guys from Mulan.
Niathal: As good as you could get.
Caedus: Don't like it. He looks like his guy called Lucas from the Soap Opera Days of Our Lives...
Cade: WOW. Where's the green eyes? And he looks really gross.
Boba: What can I say?
Ben: It's okay. I like the slightly reddish hair, and her looks like the cover or Backlash and the back of Outcast.
Anakin: Don't really like it. Kinda looks like Frankie Muniz from Malcom in the Middle.
Overall, I think these could've been done alot better. I would've liked to see a Jag and Tahiri pic too, not some random Ganner one. Oh, and Marisiah Fel would have been cool.

Tenel Ka: Too YJK-ish , almost same outfit from Tempest, face looks really wierd like she was working out for 4 hours sraight and just swept her head towards a camera, which snapped a picture.

Actually I like them. I know the Jaina one looks kinda different than they've been portraying her so far, but I gotta say I'm ok with that because she's in her 30s and so far she has still looked like a teenager. This is a more realistic portrayal of her. Caedus looks outstanding. They all do.

I'd also like to agree that Jacen looks weird though, like in his YJK portrait. I'm not fond of the Corran Horn shot either. However, I'm really pleased with Ganner's shot, and of course Boba Fett is nearly impossible to do wrong, and he's always cool.

My first scan over them had me glad that they did Ganner because that's definitely the best Ganner pic yet, and he totally deserves to have a picture. (Though it is quite a bit late)

Yet I had completely overlooked Jaina's cleavage. Yep. It's there. That has to be a controversial Jedi fashion trend. I mean, she looks like she's wearing her Jedi robe...and nothing else. I feel cheated it was only a head and shoulder's profile Crying or Very sad

I guess I don't like the Jaina one much because it looks like her whole face has changed. If you look at young pictures of Leia, and then older ones, her face is still the same, just a little wrinkled and she has gray hair. Jaina, on the other hand, her face looks totally different.

Well with Leia, Luke, and Mara, there's actually a real life person they are based off of. But with Jacen and Jaina, they are always in flux. Each artist puts a different spin on them, and you basically pick which ever one you like best. In a way, that works IF you have lots of pictures to choose from.

[Went ahead and put the pictures in the first post behind spoiler tags. That ought to address any load difficulties. Don't want to bog the thread down too much.]

Mara: Ugh! I am rather disappointed with my portrayal. Sad

Jacen: Looks Japanese. And unless I'm mistaken, he is the son of Han and Leia Solo, neither of whom are Japanese. Neutral

Corran: Definitely looks like an Asian warrior of some type...weird.

Ganner: Awesome!

Caedus: Awesome! Finally a picture I like of Caedus...

Ben: Looks like Luke, but the red hair is too light, and he's kind of...I don't know. Don't like it, though.

Jaina: Terrible! I realize she's in her thirties, but it's a terrible picture all the same. As Sword said, she has completely changed. It's very disappointing.

Um......wow. Luke, Boba, Caedus, and Anakin were all awesome, but the rest of them......yikes. Since when is Corran a Samurai? That's just odd. And why are these artists so afraid of giving Ben red hair? Oh, and does anyone else think that the picture of Tenel Ka bears a disturbing resemblance to Angelina Jolie? I'm just saying.

Nah, I don't see the Jolie resemblance. Looks more like Kirsten Dunce.

The eyes are Kirsten Dunst, and the mouth is Jolie. Most definitely. Poor Tenel Ka. Wink
