Baron Soontir Fel by FalconFan Baron Soontir Fel by FalconFan
Here's another SW illustration for a fan fiction (I suppose this could also go into the Fan Art category, as Soontir is a "canon character...")--it's of Jag Fel's father, Baron Soontir Fel. I don't have all the details of his character, only what I read in the NJO novels: a former military officer, a man of regal bearing, great courage and conviction. I hope this portrayal fits all of that! ;)

George Lucas owns all things Star Wars, this character, et al!

2H, H, 2B, 3B pencils on smooth surface drawing paper, some Kleenex and tortillons.

I like the details of his hair, face. You draw very well the hair. I like also his expression with a anger, authority. I like the dark background because, it lights only his face. It's a wonderful drawing =)

Thank you once again! This was done very quickly, actually, for a friend who had written a wonderful fanfiction story called "The Family Album," told in a first person POV by the grown daughter of Jagged and Jaina--she had some drawings that another artist had withdrawn permission to use in a LJ setting, and--as the entire piece was based around "family photos," it left her in a dreadful bind. I found a beautiful photo in a magazine advertisement that worked perfectly as a reference for this, and using her description and the passage from her story, I was able to put this together. I have to give credit to the photographer, really, who took the original photo, for the light--this was precisely how it looked in the magazine! I'm glad you like it, though--thanks again for adding another :+fav:! :hug:

Aw, thanks! Yeah--I've done oh-so-little of the Imperials...I do have to own-up, though, that this piece was done for a good friend's fan fiction, in which the good Baron was the beloved grandfather of Jag and Jaina's kids (the story was being told from the adult daughter's POV--great stuff!). Of course, this was intended to show him as the stern, retired officer he was--but also as a contrast to the gentle, loving grandfather portrayed in the narrative... In any case, I'm glad it fits for you--I had scant references, as I haven't seen any of the comics he may have been in. I greatly appreciate the visit, comments and the :+fav:!

The Baron is indeed a notable figure--I've since learned a lot more about him (but thanks for taking time to fill me in, anyway! :D), and find him to be a pretty interesting and complex fellow! Thanks for taking a look! :D

"no problem Baron Fel is a great pilot. He is like Wedge but for the Empire"

I have learned that much about him--I guess that would also explain why his son, Jagged Fel, is also a superior starfighter pilot--it runs in the family! ;)
