Padmè coming to collect Anakin (reunite). Done under 3 hours by myself. :)
This deserves to be seen, the style a/p are drawn in is too lovable! The artist, ~Ren93 didn’t have tumblr so I
harassed humbly begged them to let me post it for them. :D I did a touch of brightening to the picture because the original is a camera photo. I hope that’s okay?
Drew Struzan, everyone!
Anidala Week | May 4 - May 10
Day 4 - Theme: Childhood
Kid Anakin offering his guest Padme some kaber ellouz, which is actually a Tunisian almond-based dessert. The Phantom Menace had the most adorable almost-family dynamics between all the good guys (in the Tatooine part of the story where they’re hanging out together).

Award of the state, lost among the war-orphans, the then-Chancellor was the only fixture in Anakin’s life after he won his freedom. Caught in the undertow of death and destruction, by the time the young Queen attempted to look into the whereabouts of the peculiar little boy he was already gone - a file lost in an overwhelmed system. Once the Jedi were hunted like animals across the stars, the path for Obi-wan to follow his master’s dying directive became closed to him.
Anakin’s usefulness ended along with his destruction of the droid control ship. No credits, no home, and no friends on Coruscant - who could refuse Palpatine’s generosity where it came? And it came - first in gifts of education: manuals and texts, time spent paying attention to a child no one else seemed interested in. Later, with holocrons, to be their little secret.
The Jedi, who had abandoned him, were scattered across the galaxy - dead, dying. The only place he’d ever called home was a thousand star systems away. If he had any reservations at all when Palpatine invited him to live in the Palace and took over his education personally - when his only friend revealed himself as the Dark Lord of the Sith and his intentions for the young disciple - what other options had there ever been?
I didn’t really expect the response the first part of this got - oh my god thank you everyone. (I’m so bad at expressing this sort of thing but inside I was just rolling around happily). Getting to my favorite pouty Dark Lord. (⊙‿⊙✿) Padme’s really the hero here, but he isn’t any good at staying out of her life.
Glad to be of service! :D (✿◠‿◠)
For a little treat, it’s not A/P—but I once posted a card set of Han x Leia, so here’s something from Tomoko for our other famous SW couple;
Luke x Mara.
I like how Luke takes on the persona of the wise floating head-mentor in the background of each card.
Sketch cards by Tomoko Taniguchi.
You know, I can almost see myself starting up a LukexMara art blog considering the art I’ve seen for them, if I was so inclined, meaning, if my fan appreciation compass was more directed at these too instead of A/P.
