Finally, after hours and hours of work - my Star Wars Prequels image is done! Thank goodness! I must say, I'm pretty proud of this one. It was a massive pain in the ass with a HUGE amount of details that had to be done to make it work - but it was all well worth it in the end!

This is the sister piece to :iconadamwithers: Star Wars Classic that he did last year Star Wars by AdamWithers

It's also important to note that this is really an ode to the fantastic Clone Wars shorts and TV series. To me, the prequel films were all a disappointment. Heck, one of my most vivid memories will always be of watching Episode I for the first time and coming out of the theater confused and depressed. 

...but the cartoons were so enjoyable that it really helped me get passed all that. And when Adam and I conceived of this project a couple of years ago, it was my love for the animated series that allowed me to give Adam the classics (what got me hooked on Star Wars to begin with) and allowed me to take on the prequels with the necessary level of love and confidence.

Hope all my crazy hard work was worth it and you all find some stuff to dig about this massive piece of epicness ;)

Super special thanks to :icontravisthegeek:  for doing the flats on this. Thank you sir - couldn't have done it without you!!!!

I think the fans are way too harsh on the prequels. They always talk about the negative things about it never the positive. Such as in Episode I had some good things like the pod race and the Darth Maul fight.
I also liked Qui-Gon Jinn who saw potential in Anakin. Yeah Episode I is the worst of the series but I've seen movies that are far worse than Episode I. Jar Jar Binks was a bad character but he was down played in
Episode II and III.

Episode II has nice backgrounds and its a little better than Episode I. But the movie is really nothing special. The best thing is Count Dooku fighting Yoda. 

Episode III is the best of the series. It has great action, a good story and awesome backgrounds.

Clone Wars (2008) TV show is a lot better than Episode I and II. I liked the addition of Ahsoka Tano.

Your artwork is awesome!

There may be some positives with the prequels - but they are few and far between. Also, if they weren't Star Wars would anyone really be defending them?

The funny thing is that I think that the prequels are getting more appreciated now because each movie told a different story. Unliked with episode VII which is more or less a remake of
episode IV. I've checked on IMDB it seems that episode I gets more postive reveiws than episode VII.

Yeah if they were any other movie series no one would care as much.

Yeah, I've seen that too. Again, not really because they're good movies - but because they're something different. So, here's hoping the next couple of movies can find their own voice while still being good movies!

I agree that the first 2 prequels were terrible and below average. It was the 2003 Clone Wars cartoon and The Empire Strikes Back that got me to like Star Wars.

I would argue that the Clone Wars cartoon and Empire Strikes Back are indeed two of the best things that have ever been Star Wars ever!

Ahhhh the Clone Wars. Say what you want about the Prequels, Originals, and Sequel(s?), The Clone Wars TV show will always kick ass

Jar Jar ruined Episode One, but other than that i don't think the prequels were all that bad.

I love how Vader is at the center of it all... just goes to prove that Darth Vader IS the face of Star Wars.
