My last wallpaper/poster for a while he we have a classic film Return Of The Jedi, first of all I wanted to do a image of the skirmish on Tatooine but it didn't work out so here we have the whole film crammed into one wallpaper to complete my saga of all 6 movie wallpapers, enjoy.
And this is my new painting. with this one I had the idea of what happened when the blast doors closed. What did Vader really feel about losing Obi-wan? To me, Vader striking down his former friend and master was the start of Anakin Skywalker's journey towards redemption; not finding out the name of the pilot who destroyed the Death Star, nor even killing Palpatine. No. To me it is this moment - killing a friend, a master, a brother. Obi-wan picking up Anakin's saber is a symbolic moment. Yet Vader surely had to pick Obi-wan's saber up too. I just tried to capture as best I could what Vader would actually feel at that moment - feel and remember. I hope I did
this is really weird, i managed to find this in the corners of my gallery;[link] a really old version of her without the mask.
Background: Paradoxs creator, Khan, was part of a race of demigods that lived in another world. Khan yearned for control over their peaceful society and resorted to extreme acts in order to gain power. He created a small, elite group from his own body in order to vanquish his fellow demigods. Instead, he was overpowered and sent to be forever imprisoned inside of the far planet earth where the heat from its core would suppress his god-like strength and powers. However, Khan still had strength enough to fracture his mind into separate pieces in order to create new beings out of his own flesh. With this retained power, he created creatures that would venture above to the earths surface and become the eyes and ears of Khan. They would do his bidding and slowly conquer the world so when Khan was finally set free, all he would have to do is take his throne on top of the vanquished earth. However, when the eyes of Khan showed him a human girl, he momentarily forgot about his purpose. He thought she was the most intoxicating thing he had ever seen and resolved to make a creature in her human likeness. But a problem arose; when Khan created a human, it also took on the mentality of a human. His creation was too perfect, too close to that of a real human. The girl saw the horror behind Khans objective, and instead of aiding Khan in conquering the world, she turned on him and his creations in order to return the world to its original state, before there was a Khan. After she destroys all of Khans creations, or her brothers as she calls them, she would be strong enough in order to face Khan himself.
She is, in herself, a contradiction of her origin, or a paradox of her family.
Though Paradox has a human body, the strange powers of demigods still remain. She has enhanced speed/agility and can use the chain and the ribbon as weapons. She can control both as if there were appendages of her own body. Her left arm (with the black glove) controls the chain while the right controls the ribbon. both ribbon and chain can grow/shrink at will.
EXTRA STUFF: (because you asked)
Outfit: the costume was made in order for her to look more like her brothers. The intimidation factor works especially well when she takes care of regular criminals. Her head is covered in cloth with the helmet placed on top of it. The cloth covering her face fades from black to grey. The ribbon is red, but there is a theme of alternating black and white in her clothing, or yin and yang. she doesn't like regular human clothes, only her own, or naked.
Human looks: Hair: Dark brown Eyes: ice blue Height: 5'11"

The client had commissioned a painting for his wife, who is an avid poker-player and Texas Hold 'Em enthusiast. Yoda is her favorite Star Wars character, so he asked for a scene reminiscent of the classic dogs-playing-poker painting, with Yoda competing against a group of weaker-minded creatures and cleaning up.
