Caught up on another late (argh, sorry :/) digital commission. I probably gave this one a little extra love, because (a) it's Ahsoka and (b) the guy gave me 100% free reign, which always rocks — all he asked for was "BOUNTY HUNTER AHSOKA."

This is the most appropriate fan art I've seen about a future Ahsoka so far. I believe there is a possibility that things didn't go too well for her after the rise of the Empire. I mean, when the last time we saw her she was completely disillusioned with the Jedi. Who knows how she would react to their "betrayal"? From what we know, the public believed that Palpatine was only a victim and Anakin Skywalker died during the assault on the Jedi Temple, led by Darth Vader. At least, that's what they said in the novel Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader. If Ahsoka fell for that - and there's a chance she did - she probably became very much like Asajj Ventress was after Dooku abandoned her; vengeful and even more disillusioned. Comsumed by fear and sorrow, the young Togruta could turn into a bounty hunter, even if it sounds too absurd at the moment. Who knew she had the darkness in her we saw on Mortis? Just remember what she said back then: "I feel more like myself than I ever have." Or what about the "seeds of the dark side, planted by her Master"? Aurra Sing was a Jedi as well before she became a bounty hunter... Whatever the happens, I'm sure Ahsoka will find her way back to the light.
