Tenel Ka Chume Ta' Djo, Queen of the Hapes Consortium circa 40 ABY (After Battle of Yavin, i.e. Star Wars Episode 4)
For those wondering what happened to her left arm:
"During a lightsaber training exercise with Jacen Solo, Tenel Ka's newly constructed lightsaber (made from a rancor tooth) shorted out due to a flaw in its focusing crystal. Jacen's blade slipped through the space it had previously occupied and cut off Tenel Ka's left arm. Tenel Ka bore Jacen no ill will, but Jacen felt seriously guilty. The accident had drastically changed their relationship, especially in light of the fact that, prior to the accident, Jacen had hoped they would become more than friends.
Whisked back to Hapes by her grandmother Ta'a Chume, Tenel Ka briefly considered whether she should continue to train as a Jedi, but in a display of personal strength and confidence, Tenel Ka refused to have the prosthetic replacement her grandmother arranged for her to have attached, and sought to enhance her physical abilities along with her Jedi talents to make up."
From her Wookiepedia entry. (Warning the entry contains major spoilers for recent Star Wars novels near the end). After reading Tempest, I just had give her an image.
On a technical note, this image was created in Poser 7 using Victoria 4.0. V4's high-res textures are so large, that I would not even dare attempt to load them into a P5/6 render. It would just fall over and die.
For those hoping for impressions on V4 and Poser 7, I'll say this about each:
Poser 7 is still buggy, however there is nothing preventing me from using it as a replacement for Poser 6. Multiple undo, the faster render times, and the drastically reduced memory usage far outweigh any other problems (importing, not opening, pz3 files is broken, some keyboard shortcuts are broken, shadows in renders occasionally have artifacts, dynamic cloth only seems to work if it's all done in a single simulation) that I have encountered. If any of these things sound like problems to you, I recommend holding off until eF releases a few patches.
Victoria 4.0 - Wow, where to begin. I really like this model. The morphs are organized well into categories. Her default face is much prettier than default V3, though I find her eyes too large. The high res textures are incredibly detailed, and the joint bends are much improved. V4 does require P6 or P7 because of the way her joints are set up. Poser 4 (and possibly 5) do weird things with her leg bends as you might have seen around here. I'd love to be able to convert my girl's faces over to V4 when more content comes around but I don't know that they'll be possible to recreate since many of the facial morphs are different.
damn sexy jedi :D i don't know what i can say lol , wonderful , fantastic , can i be your aprentice :P
wanted to ask did you ever make a zeltron image you know a little competion for the twi'leks
From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki.
"When you've been in this business as long as I have, you learn a few things: Nothing's more dangerous than arguing with a Wookiee, nothing's more foolish than gambling with a Jedi, and nothing's more alluring than a Twi'lek dancer. But I'm here to tell you that last one is wrong. If you like your humanoids flexible, svelte, enthusiastic, and in multiple shades of red, then the most beautiful people in the galaxy are on Zeltros. Who needs Twi'leks?"
the twi'lek thing is bad why can't we have both :P

Wonderful use of fabrics, textures and lighting. Poser art seems to be getting better by the month, with all the advances.
I'm not familiar with this character as I am reading Old Republic and Clone Wars novels at the moment but a friend of mine mentioned this exact moment between her and Jacen, to me some months ago. I'll have to show him this picture.

I absolutely love this render. I've registered and everything, but when I download the jpeg, I can't view it :(
Edit by Giolon: I discovered a problem with the download button's behavior. Thanks for letting me know!
