Here's the latest in my series of "Could have happened!" moments from the Star Wars films. This would be during the time in The Phantom Menace when Maul is stalking The Queen and company.

 I wanted to play around with the idea of the Sandpeople being easily frightened ( as we saw in Episode 4). Someone like Darth Maul walking around (who basically looks like Satan) would probably startle them. And I wanted to capture a quieter Maul moment, him just walking the desert, his lightsaber as a makeshift walking stick to further push that wanderer vibe.

Oh, this is lovely!

Have you read the Darth Maul Episode I Journal? It's the events of "The Phantom Menace," told from Maul's perspective, and he does encounter sandpeople while he's hunting on Tatooine!

(So you're right ... it definitely could have happened!)

Anyway, the lighting and colors in this are just breathtaking, well done.

Looks good Livio. He's reminds of the grim reaper walking around in the desert to calm his next victim!!

when I saw this during a search, the Tatooine theme went through my head. 
I also would have seen him there looking for the young Darth Vader.
As if Maul could sense the darkside of the force pulling at Anakin even at that young of an age...
Maybe Darth Maul searched for an apprentice...   fav+

This is one of the most striking depictions of Darth Maul I have ever seen. I love the dynamic of the whole image, especially the sandpeople's reaction to Maul and the fact that the sunset is a lot more sinister looking than normal.
