Yun-Shuno by blue-but-beautiful Yun-Shuno by blue-but-beautiful
Yun-Shuno, the Pardoner, was the Goddess of Forgiveness of the Yuuzhan Vong. She was the only deity the Shamed Ones were allowed to address; consequently they were the only ones who did so. She was said to possess a thousand eyes, and watched the Shamed Ones and protected them from the other deities; in addition, it was believed that she alone could cure certain Shamed Ones, allowing them to resume the station they once held before becoming Shamed. She was also the most grotesque deity in the Yuuzhan Vong pantheon, much like her "imperfect" worshipers. -Wookieepedia

Another part-traditional piece I did while I was away, I may add a digital version later on, though i've become rather fond of this version.

Yun-Shuno and all things SW belong to Yun-Lucas, the concept art however is MINE....or I will help you not ;)

This is so cool: I love the palette, sort of reflecting the jarring state of the Shamed, and the multiple "eye-stalks" all over her, watching everything. You have a real gift for interpreting this species, and this piece reflects that very well--I could see this as part of a shrine the Shamed Ones had erected to Yun Shuno, a place to come and worship and make their appeals... Wonderful!

Thankyee :D :hug: that was my original idea with these type of figures, they were meant to be faceless as often the Yuuzhan Vong describe the gods in many different ways, yet essentially the same concepts in others. Yun-Harla in particular, but I tended to veer away from the idea that the 'many eyed mother' here, was just a bunch of eyes on a stalk lol.

Your concept gives the illusion of both the figure of the actual goddess, though, along with her "many eyes;" an image, I would imagine, that made her more accessible to those who worshiped and petitioned her. :nod: I like it a lot!

Well you noticed it now, that's the main thing, hehe thanks very much! I was having a retro day, catching up on all those episodes of MCoG I never saw as a kid, and got all inspired by the Myan/Inca etc designs.

Thanks :D And grotesque? Well what humans consider to be preeetifull, Yuuzhan Vong seem to dislike, so perhaps they would think she is grotesque hehe XD

probably, though i know of a YV or two that are quite good looking from both sides ;)
[though taking into account the whole "things in (humans'/etc) own image can be thought of as attractive to said species", and both us and them being bipeds (humanoid?) and stuff...meh, i don't know]

kinda strange how humanesque they look from being from another galaxy, with others from that same galaxy looking so, uh...alien

Yeah, I think that was the bone (no pun intended *coughELEGOScough* ) of contention with most Corran fans that also liked the YV. It was the opposite for me, I rather liked Corran until he did what he did to Shedao Shai *insert angry upset face here* lol.

You don't like Corran any more :tears:... how is that possible?*SARS goes into shock* But it's interesting that it went the other way for you. One of my friends still likes both Corran and Shedao Shai.:D

He doesn't seem to have such an involvment in the EU now Mr Stackpole has stopped writing him :( Corran that is, which is a shame, he was my fave author. But yes, shock horror lol, I liked Shedao Shai more than Corran horn, my strange crushes know no bounds XD

I like your concept of her. Very nice.

Overall aesthetic is very pleasing to the eye (ironic, for the Yuuzhan Vong).

Yeah perhaps a tad too symmetrical for them eh? ;) But then she was the Shamed Ones focus of worship and some of them were smooth-skinned and symmertical hehe. Thanks! :D

Thanks! :D I was using the sort of abstract figures I sometimes draw away from anything fan art related here, and incorporating it in my work, so it would be interesting to see what some non NJO fans thought of it.
