Empress Ahsoka by Raikoh-illust Empress Ahsoka by Raikoh-illust
Seeing how it seems that Ahsoka will turn to the dark side, that gave me the idea of drawing her as Palpatine. I tried for a pose and expression similar to what he does.

This is amazing. I laughed at first, but then realized how awesome it would be. She clearly has enough buried anger, resentment, and betrayal to go Dark Side. She'd make a pretty scary Sith witch. I love the corruption and the facial expression.

Ahsoka would be a far better Emperor than Palpatine is. Palpatine just sits on his butt and rants and raves about his plans.

But, Ahsoka, if Ahsoka is the Emperor, the galaxy is screwed.

Dark Ahsoka: Please Come in my young Apprentice. (Her apprentice comes through the door, with some appalled news!)
did, or did you not KILL the Jedi? I want all the Jedi Executed at once! But It seems you didn't kill the Jedi Shaak Ti for me.
Apprentice: No please, I didn't kill her yet, but I will-
Dark Ahsoka: You have fail me for the very last time my young apprentice. As punishment you will not go on any missions I set for the Troopers,
Apprentice: But I didn-
Dark Ahsoka: Go now! (She Unleashes sith lightning from her right hand, and on to her apprentice)

I don't what I would do if ahsoka becomes a sith! maybe that will happen! Ummmmmm...I'm out! AHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhh!!

Lovely pic. The cracks in her darkened complexion really bring out the slow physical effects of the dark side. Dark tones really fit her. So tell me; if Ahsoka's the Empress, then who is her Lady? Nobody can effectively rule the galaxy on their own, plus, as we all know, the dark side users (or Sith if you prefer) draw strength from passion. So it only stands to reason that she'd have that certain somebody.

This is a cool drawing, and it's great inspiration for me because I'm writing a story about Ahsoka becoming a Sith Lord and Dark Mistress to a Sith named Darth Malice

This reminds me of the words of a great and powerful woman:

"There must always be a Darth Traya. The galaxy needs its betrayers, especially in the times to come."

That's it then! Ahsoka is to be the rebirth of Darth Traya!

Speculation is abound, but all I know is if they kill her off or make her truly evil, I will be truly pissed. Just as bad as "Greedo shot first".

My theory is she has a vision of order 66 being carried out. She dosn't know who gave it, but knows who carried it out. Her whole sense of right and wrong is flipped upside-down.

Now she knows that the Republic she fought for will stab the Jedi in the back, the clones she considered friends will kill her without hesitation with a single order, and Anakin is going to slaughter ALL of his former comrades, including children.

The vision drives her to desperation, and to prevent it from coming to pass she tries to use both the light and dark. Doing something bad for a good reason seems to walk a fine line between the two to me. Anakin, only a wielder of the light has trouble keeping up with the newly empowered Ahsoka.

Anakin JUST manages to win, but can't bring himself to kill her, and in his hesitation she flees, sealing the door behind them. She steals the Twilight (which is why we don't see IT in Episode 3 either.) and flies off to the Outer Rim in exile. Filled with shame and regret, the ending shot is her in the pilot chair, crying into her hands.

Episode Title: "Fall from Grace"

After that, she switches to an odd position of Anti-Hero. There would be one or two episodes focusing on her that show she's still a good person despite the dark path she walks (saving people, but being a bit scary in how she does it.) She will also re-appear in a few episodes with other Jedi, where she will hover somewhere between friend and foe.

Eventually she survives Order 66 by virtue of not BEING a Jedi when the order is give.

My pesonal feeling about her and the Dark Side is that she will come to the light, but it will be after a confrontation like what happened with Obi Wan and Anakin in Episode III. They can't kill her off this early in the series (it only being season 3 and there are 5 easons that will be made, according to George Lucas anyway). To me, she's too big and too well liked a character to kill off. If they kill her off, the rest of the series will be a disaster. Besides she's my fav character in the series anyway [with Barriss running a close second ;) ]
I also saw on some websites that she's (secretly) one of the founding members of the Rebel Alliance. Though, I find that hard to believe. :hmm: But that's just my take on things.

Very cool. It's creepy to see one so young in the Palpatine role, but it works. I really like how you've kept her markings bright white (at first I thought it was Tron Ahsoka :P) and how the cloak is painted. Do you use references to draw fabric like that, or is it just...magic? :P

Well I did search for pictures of Palpatine for reference in how the cloak looks like. I'll like to think it was magic, lol, but I just used some natural rough brushes from the painter program that I am have been using recently.
