This has been such an on-and-off drawing that I can't remember how I first thought of it. Sometimes I just get urges to draw cute stuff and let's leave it at that. It's also been a cool experiment with using colour on sketches.

These little broken families make me simultaneously gush and cry inside. The softer side of Star Wars never gets enough love.

Pose reference used: [link] by ~DandyStock
EDIT: I just remembered, I also used pose reference for Anakin and Shmi out of 'Treasure Planet''s beginning storytelling scene, it's iconic to me for a 'mother-son' bonding moment. Really sweet and underrated SF animated movie, check it out!

Actually I have lousy reading comprehension. Palpatine doesn't know how to do it right XP

Damn, you picked the best space parents. Grievous! Kids!
It's quite a change seeing Palpatine taking pity on Maul.

Space parents! :heart: I love this phrase, haha!

Actually, although Palpatine is mean in this picture towards Maul, I'll be submitting a pic soon where they're having a more normal 'family' moment.
