Star Wars

http://splendidriver.deviantart.com/...Wars-326359077

I've been working on this for quite a while. Though I'm not a fan of Star Wars, the character designs are too interesting that I couldn't help doing some experiment of my own. Most of these characters I chose from the original series, other than bearded Obi Wan and Qui-gon Jinn. The cartoon shows don't have these, so I guess I'll make my own interpretation on them.

It boggles the mind that you're not a Star Wars fan.

Great work though! This would make a killer poster.

I'm not a huge fan of the series myself, but I'm familiar enough with it that your take seems like it takes too many liberties with the original characters, distorts them too far. E.g. Darth Vader posed like that just isn't Darth Vader to me... Well done technically. I just mean as far as your take on the characters, it seems like something else, not quite Star Wars.

Splendid! Vader looks awesome, even if the pose doesn't feel like Darth Vader.

Then again, I'm remembering he does do lightsaber battles, so maybe so.. I was just thinking of how his usual image is much more somber and severe, in posters and things.

TimR - No, I agree with you that it's not a Vader-like pose. I was not responding to your comment, but rather we were posting the same thing at the same time.

Regardless, I really enjoy this. Good job!

Yes, if it does not really feel like Star Wars like how we always know, that's how I want it to be. I want it to be my world, my vision on the characters. I want Vader a little bit wacky and crazy, when Luke is kinda a goofy one. This is a fan art after all, and I just want to experiment on what I can do with the characters. And yes, the pose I gave Vader is actually a fighting pose.

Thank you all so much for all the compliments, I know I still have a lot to improve, and I will work even harder.

dongbenigajr is on a distinguished road

I totally agree with the Darth Vader comments, and I think he needs to look more menacing. Other than that, this is really an awesome piece, especially the Emperor on top left.
