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!

Comments and thoughts of any kind are most welcome! :blowkiss:

Have you read the book Darth Plagueis? Palpatine went through some serious shit too. (One of them being ne nearly froze to death)

Yes, I read the book, I loved it a lot! The freezing scene was pretty brutal, I did feel sorry for Palpatine!

I think the worst thing is that, for all Palpatine put Maul through, you can tell he did a better job at parenting that Palpatine's own father:
at least young Maul didn't feel Palpatine would prefer him to be dead. :-/

I just got past that part in the book. At the end of that part I was like: "I'm just thankful he didn't loose anything to frostbite...." . That book also reveals that, even as a kid, Sidious was still the cunning manipulator he is as the chancellor!

I'm sure he did. Cosinga man.....I didn't even feel sorry for him when Palpatine killed him. I was actually happy! What book should I aquire to read all about Maul and his rise to being a mighty Sith warrior?

Wait until you get to the end of the book, hehehe, little Palpatine really grows into the ultimate manipulator... :w00t:

I wasn't even sorry for Cosinga either, what an evil jerk that one was! I never quite got why Cosinga wanted his son dead ever since he was born. :-/

Hmm, as to Maul book, there's a young adult book I haven't read yet, that details his childhood the most - 'The Wrath of Darth Maul', I think it is called. I found snippets of his childhood in 'Shadowhunter'. There's also a few other books that touch on the subject, but I would have to check their names.

I'm totally sure of that!

Unfortunantly, some people are just assholes to their children.

I believe most of it is in The Wrath of Darth Maul like you said. I'll try to convince one of my parents to buy that book for me so I can read it!

and by the way: I looked at one of your holiday drawings on your Sith tumblr and OH MY DEAR LORD. The one with the order 66 gingerbread cookies was unbelivably adorable!

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.
