PSC - Darth Caedus by aimo PSC - Darth Caedus by aimo
Personal sketch card of Jacen Solo aka Darth Caedus from the Star Wars: Legacy of the Force novels.

I have not read them, by the way, so I may have taken a little bit of creative license with his look here based of what little images I can find of him online...

Caedus is awesome. Why'd they have to kill him so quickly? Great pic. You may not have read the books, but you really captured him.

Im designing a Darth Caedus costume and it needs to be 'accurate' to the books description or whatever. Can I ask is this entirely an interpretation or was their a source you based this drawing on?

I based it on one of the official illustrations of him - [link] . Not sure where it is from exactly, though.

Hope that helps!

I haven't seen much Jacen/Caedus art around, so it's nice to see here! You should do another Darth Caedus or Jacen Solo one. ^_^

Hi Aimo!! :wave: I totally missed that you had a gallery here, and only just now found this piece in another's favorites--I'm so glad I did! A marvelous rendering of Jacen as Caedus--you got all the smoldering rage, the gauntness and the general malice down so very well--great, dramatic angle, great perspective; the palette is wonderful, too--all the dark and "hot" colors... Beautiful job, and it's definitely going into :+fav:s! :clap:

he seemed to become who he used to be right before Jaina sliced him, and that's the saddest part. Hiis love for his family eventually won out against the Darkness that he enveloped himself in, but it was too late.

A pity that the whole Solo family seems to have been wiped out. eight years after the death of Anakin I still find myself hoping that the character will be resurrected.

There's still Jaina and Allana. And Emperor Roan Fel and his Daughter Marassiah in the legacy comics.

This is awesome- and you've done very well getting his look right. I love the shading of his outfit, and his lightsaber.

Awesome, just as all of your work is, unmatchable. 10/10 in my book ^_^.

By the way, I never got the paypal invoice for that sketchcard I asked to purchase, and I never heard back about the sketchcard commission I emailed you about.

Oh well, nevertheless, this along with all of your other works, is flawless

In the books especially the last one. he's described aas having yellow eyes and streched and cracked skin around the eyes. But for not having even read the books. You did a really good job.

Oh. But you're right, though. He should have his yellow eyes there. Since his eyes are too small you can't really see the color. XD

I have a hard time imagining him with yellow eyes anyway. I'm still not entirely sure why the dark side corrupts these people. I mean, didn't they spend the first three books explaining that the dark side only corrupts already crazy people? Then POOF! Jacen's a crazy person. ... And then POOF! He's a good guy again.

I don't get it. :(
