Tenel Ka: Cover Art Through The Years

StarWars.Com has released the back cover art and blurb for the next Fate of the Jedi novel, Conviction by Aaron Allston, due out May 24, 2011.  The Front cover had previously been released starring Tahiri Veila, but now we also have the back cover featuring former Jedi Knight and current Queen Mother of the Hapes Consortium Tenel Ka.

The similarities between the front cover art for Legacy of the Force: Tempest and Fate of the Jedi: Conviction are pretty remarkable. Consistent coloring of the lightsaber, consistent hairstyle (long with braids), similar clothing with the hide/skin looking sleeves, and even the eyes between the painted style (Tempest) and the more realistic style (Conviction) image of the character are similarly done.  On the back cover of Conviction the character looks a bit like Keira Knightley to me. 

Lets take a look back at Tenel Ka as she has appeared on Star Wars novel covers through the years.
