I feel a little bad. These are two projects I started awhile back (with so much enthusiasm!) but as time passed they ended up just being neglected. I’m posting them now to remind myself to finish the things I’ve started, instead of always starting new things—because my pile of new things quickly becomes old things and I can’t let that happen, especially to anidala fanart!
Also too, as I’ve mentioned I’m putting the blog on hold for awhile and I feel like I’m also going to have to put my art on hold for awhile too, so I’m giving you what I have because it might be awhile before I can do something new (or better yet, finishing something old :P).
The bottom fanart is a personal favorite of mine. I completed that while at a museum, just after seeing the Star Wars Identities Exhibit on my sister’s birthday. I was inspired after seeing Padme’s beautiful purple gown with the silver moon crescent—IN PERSON—and had to draw it immediately after. I think I’m still in awe over it. I wanted to draw Anakin’s outfit too which was displayed over an Episode II backdrop but later after I drew the picture I realized they actually displayed Anakin’s Ep. III Jedi robes but I didn’t catch that right away. I mean he was with the speeder and Tatooine sunset for pete’s sake, but I’m not sorry—his AOTC robes are wicked awesome! ;)
I like the way Tumblr works, it makes great use of small images that couldn’t be posted on their own, provided I had other images to go along with it. And besides, I couldn’t just not post cards drawn by Kilian Plunkett himself.
"Hold me, like you did by the lake on Naboo; so long ago when there was nothing but our love. No politics, no plotting, no war."
— PADME AMIDALA
This show needs more love and fanart.
Padme Amidala & Anakin Skywalker #clonewars
I also call this “The Senator and Her (Secret) Jedi Boyfriend.”
Aww, my goodness, this is really cute, especially that title! ♥ ♥
Currently I’ve been away and have to put the blog on a temporary hold, I have a lot of important things happening in my life right now and I need to seize every chance of rest I get. It shouldn’t be along while but this is just so you know. I was also delighted to have some messages in my inbox! I’ll answer them here and will send the same response personally to the individual.
Ask: Did anyone ever find out about Anakin and Padme?
I’m assuming you mean did anyone ever find out about their secret? The answer is; Yes, while they were both alive, a few people did. By default since three others were a witness at the wedding; the monk, Maxiron Agolerga, C-3P0 and R2-D2 all knew, and R2 kept that information inside of him long enough for Luke to discover it one day to confirm his feelings that the senator Amidala was in fact, his mother.
Palpatine found out about it through Padme’s old guard, Panaka, who served her when she was Queen. When he learned of that information he told Palpatine who in turn used that against Anakin to bring him to his downfall.
A few other’s knew as well. Anakin once told another secretly married Jedi, Nejaa, about Padme, in the book, Jedi Trial. And I’m not for certain but I believe Padme also informed her most trusted handmaidens.
I also suspect there were others who knew but said nothing, like an “open secret” as Bail coined it. Captain Typho, Obi-wan and Ahsoka are all people who I think suspected and turned a blind eye. The comic Obsession made a point of Obi-wan saying “every padawan on Coruscant” knew where to find Anakin on his retreats, so that kinda of tells you how overtime it was harder and harder for the couple to be cautious about their relationship.
I’m a little addle-brained right now and may have forgotten a few more, but I hope that answers your question :) .
Edit: It just came to my mind that Ventress too would have cause because she caught Anakin viewing a hologram of Padme telling Anakin personal things, and a love declaration in The Dreadnaughts of Rendili. But Ventress is not much of a threat to either of them, she’s to busy with her own problems and I think there are quite a few others like Ventress but since a war is raging around the galaxy, a Jedi being romantically involved seems to be the least of problems, and is drowned out by the more serious matters at hand.
Ask: Hi first I love your blog second is the star wars the clone wars tv show over?
Thank you! I love hearing that because then I’m reminded there are others who care for the couple as much as I do. :D <3.
The answer to your sad question;
Unfortunately, the show Star Wars: The Clone Wars is now deemed over. When Disney bought the franchise it’s been a downward spiral for the show and it’s fans since. The first signs of it being cancelled were revealed back in March of 2013, but there was a lot of talk about some Bonus Content that would be revealed soon after. it’s been a whole year since but just recently, those few episodes that did not make the Season 5 cut, along with anything else that was in production at that time prier to cancellation were put together in a package titled the Lost Missions—Season Six if you will.
I’m not happy with how it ended because the show had so much potential and was supposed to go on for a few more seasons yet, but was cut during it’s prime. Yet some fans aren’t as disappointed because of talk about a new show titled, “Rebels”, that Dave Filoni is involved. Unfortunately I have no interest in this because it won’t have Anakin and Padme like TCW did.
Still, this may be just my foolish fantasy but I think that, even though seemingly impossible, I think somehow the TCW will come back one day, and it will be even better than before. ;)
Ask: Hi~ I just wanted to thank you for taking the time and effort to run this amazing blog! It fills my heart with so much joy (and feels ;-; ). Anidala 4 LYFE! ♥
Lol! Thank you!! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ I never get tired of hearing passionate fans muse about Anakin and Padme, I keep this blog running as fuel to keep that passion burning for others, or to prove just how deserving A/P are to have so many fans XD. Hater’s can kick it to the sidelines, you can’t stop this fandom!
BTW—lol—just so you know, If I happen to find out you’ve been hoarding secret anidala fanart… I’ll hunt you down and give you the stink eye! ಠ_ಥ
No A/P fanart escapes Tweedy’s farm! （╯°□°）╯
2/2 Sketch card puzzle by Kimberly Dunaway
The funny thing about this card is, I have a little story to go a long with it. Not long, but still I found it to be amusing.
Previously, I only found one card by Ms. Dunaway, and it’s a pretty little thing, small, but still lovely. Then I found this ^ on Ebay one day and recognized the artist’s name, but it was only the Padme half. It’s really frustrating to only find 1/2 part of a card, especially an A/P one and since she never posted either card on her website portfolio, I had to just wait to see if the Anakin one would eventually pop up.
A few months pass, and then suddenly I found another card but this time it was by Brian Kong, BUT… it was also only the Padme half! :( lol. Now I had two card’s for the same scene but missing both Ani’s.
Finding puzzle sketch cards on eBay means the likelihood of ever finding the other half is very minimal. So I was thinking one day, from some random urge… maybe I should just e-mail her and ask about the card, she seem’s nice? (lol) Well, just before I was about to do that, I was checking my daily websites for updates. Then, lo and behold, on Ebay, the most recent card added was—the Anakin card! I was so surprised and delighted, but mostly, surprised!
Hehe, It’s funny how life works out.
Artwork by @rakti and it comes from Twitpic.
I’ve noticed, recently, lots of interesting SW art being uploaded there, had it not been for my sister I wouldn’t have bothered because I didn’t know twitter had a platform for hosting images, (I don’t keep up with social media, I’m in the dark) but she found a few gems, including this one :D. I added the background so the image could fit comfortably in a 500px space without being stretched but to see the original image please go here, too rakti’s account —> Picture!
Twitpic isn’t so nice about reblogging to tumblr. I tried it and I only got a link instead of the pretty image. Bleh.
Saw a family pass by…
I’m really surprised this doesn’t have more notes, this is the most adorable modern AU I’ve seen of the Skywalker family!
