The Lady Revan by ZolaPaulse The Lady Revan by ZolaPaulse
The Lady Revan in her Star Forge, after defeating Malak and reclaiming her mantle as most badass chick in the galaxy. She's now accepting all challengers.

Sorry, Carth. You can't win 'em all...



Awesome. ~Gard-Helset and I made this sweet HD wallpaper for you to enjoy in spirit of the pre-order of SW:TOR coming up. Celebrate the future of the franchise by looking back on the things they got right! I believe they're finally finishing Revan's storyline in the upcoming MMORPG, unfortunately they've canonised her as a male. Revan is female! Star Wars is already a total sausage fest without giving every decent character a dong.

I asked Gard to give me a female Revan, expecting the regular old Revan-in-drag routine they routinely pulled back in the day. He gave me this and I was not disappointed. Started off as a doodle that we passed back and forth and went on to um....and...then yeah. We kind of went crazy near the end.

You're the wind beneath my wings, man.

YES! I was just replaying KotOR for the first time in several years, with a female Revan as usual, and this time around I was particularly struck by how the figure shown as Revan in the flashback/vision scenes has a very obviously male physique. I would have loved to have either a female counterpart to show depending on the player character's gender, or just a more gender-ambiguous Revan. Anyhow, good artwork is good and will now represent female Revan in my head for the foreseeable future. :D

Thank you! All credit goes to GardHelset for everything I have ever done in my life. He was the one that gave the KotOR Revan the alt female model Bioware didn't. 

Have they put Revan costumes into SWTOR now?

I'm 68% sure you're giving me too much credit about your life, but as for femRevan model? Yes I did. I will defend this creation till the end of time, mostly because I'm proud of it, but partly because her hips make me gnaw on my knuckles just a little bit...

Beautiful work!

Funny thing, I'm actually on a playthrough of KOTOR 2 right now, and set a female Revan as dark side by mistake, despite playing as a light side female in KOTOR 1. In a way, it became a narrative of the "road not taken" for me. What bugs me about the set canon Revan and Exile is actually the force alignments. There were probably players who played a dark side Revan or Exile of either gender that weren't happy with the canon results, especially considering how dark/light side decisions can heavily alter the plot.

Well, Star Wars is throwing out anything Bioware did from canon, so I guess the plot is up in the air now? I think the dark/light side thing was inevitable, unless they were gonna add a third scenario for a grey jedi?

To be honest, I don't remember enough of KotOR 2 to really form any thoughts about the effects of the plot. I only played it once and I can't remember actually setting a Revan in that. I've lined it up to do a 1&2 play someday soon, so maybe I'll see it.

Personally, I wish the grey jedi were more explored, but that's just my opinion.

Hi, sadly havent got the tattoo done yet... Babies and sleeve tattoos dont mix well in a bank account. Whilst saving (and hoping for a lottery win) i got to thinking. Do you do commission work? Was hoping for two of my characters in this style so that i could a) have them on my sleeve and b) have trilogy of poster images making my house officially the most awesome place ever. 😍😄

Hi FreeMages, it's absolutely fine by us if you get this made into a tattoo. Short of having our name tattooed underneath the image, I don't know how you'd even credit for a tattoo, so I wouldn't worry about that part. Just have fun with it!

If you love Revan enough to get a tattoo, more power to you, she's my hero too. :) Revan belongs to all of us, and I'm just happy we did a piece that can inspire people.

If you get this done, I'd really love to see a photograph of it! Do stay in touch and let me know how it goes.

To tell you the truth I always like the opposite of the canon.  Female Revan and Male Exile!  Reason why I always preferred male Exile is when I played KOTOR 2 as female they would at certain parts call the Exile a he in cut-scenes despite having a female Exile(that happened quite a bit).  Not to mention the fact that the male Exile had Brianna while the female one had the disciple aka Mical.

I played as a female both times for no apparent reason, but I'm just happy to have the choice on who to play as. I think I ended up with Atton trailing after me as I flew off into the gallery, then heard in an internet comment that the exile dies anyway, so hm, that was the end of that. I think a male exile would be preferable to a male Revan, but that's because I feel deep social injustice every time someone reminds me that Revan cannot be male because duh go back in the kitchen lol farmville. The day I learn to punch people through a monitor is the day people stop looking at a character with a horrifically obvious and literal breastplate and asking me if it's a dude.

That's also what I remember. IIRC only Jade Empire when playing as Male and DAO as a Cousland allowed for multiple relationships.
So Crusader Kings 2 got Bioware beat there ;) . Although it wasn't until version 2.1.1. that non-Muslims rulers got the opportunity to have up to 4 lovers in addition to a spouse.
Not that there aren't plenty of pitfalls there. Like your kids not bothering to wait until they get married, or after making sure that conquered territory stays in the family by handing out new lands and titles to your siblings you find out that your sisters firstborn was fathered by her Chancellor.

That all sounds...terribly dramatic! I downloaded the game once but it was all very complicated and kept closing at random times, so I gave up on playing it. I played Jade Empire but the threesome left much to be desired, I hear. Then again, it's quality, not quantity when it comes to relationships. 

Unfortunately I'm having video card issues, so I won't be gaming for a few weeks and won't get either. :(

Very, very cool.

So with TOR, BioWare ended up taking the really adventurous route of having both Revan and the Exile have light side endings and declare them canonical. To add insult to injury, they gave both of them fixed genders. I still haven't really accepted this as fact. Given how much TOR is based on individualized instances and playable character's personal stories, they could have let us decide things like which endings happened and which gender each character was. Then again, a good number of fans were hungry for a KOTOR 3, not an MMO.

Alright, sermon over.

Like I said, very nice image. I use it as a desktop! <3

Excellent picture. My personal head canon is that Revan is a Sith Lady who killed Bastilla (she was a lousy Jedi and an even lousier Sith), took Carth with her against his will and ruled with an iron fist. She would eventually be vanquished by the Exile, who's a male light side Jedi and is accompanied by his scrappy crew of recently Jedi powered friends.

Head canon ahoy! I do prefer Sith Revan over Jedi Revan. After all, the Jedi fucked Revan over multiple times. I'd feel a lot less bitter if they'd just killed her or left her to die. Glorified slavery and brain-washing is hardly the 'light side way'.

I have the biggest, dumbest grin on my face you don't even know.

From an art perspective, it's great. "All roads lead to Revan" isn't a quote, but it suits the picture. Everything that would make attention wander from Revan was clipped, which is a great skill. The details in the background only serve to highlight her. The armor looks really incredibly great, and the attention to detail (especially with the little dents) is great. The color palette is great. The pseudo-Star Map (you guessed it, great)! The folds in the cloak and dress are great.

From a character standpoint, I also love Revan in masks, and femRevan in general. I also like the red lightsaber, since Dark Revan is also rad when done right.

Have a good day!

Hey, sorry I took so long getting back to you. I mean I coulda done it earlier or ignored it but you spent actual effort looking at the piece so I feel like I gotta acknowledge that.

I love that you like the image, and you're right in that it's a pretty well-arranged piece. I can say this without bragging because honestly, the entire piece was an accident. Dude just drew the femRev for me as a gift because I utterly adore Revan. She's like, my hero. I dig so hard the idea of a dark side Revan because...we don't get enough kickass females. I spent so long colouring her in that we felt it needed a background, got lazy on mirroring the sides and stuck her in the middle. I personally always felt the background was the greatest part about that, which is odd since I had nothing to do with its creation. I only did work on the actual figure. We went a little crazy near the end though, sending it back and forth, touching up, changing colours, adding details that turned out to be totally invisible when you zoom out. 

Things you're missing out on: cracks in the leather, the chest plate painted entirely with dots, cross hatching on the shitty mask (which we worked out she cannot possibly see through) and the massive trail of bodies that clearly leads to that room.
