And a message to the artist: Great picture. I like the realistic style of it that makes it look like promotional movie fanart. Especially the details in the robes amd the wrackage in the background. Gives the entire thing just the right atmosphere of dark power
The Imperial Guards are menacing, but I've always wondered about those weapons. How would the guards utilize them, I wonder?
I like the atmosphere you've created. You immediately picture a wet, dank sky spitting snow. It also raises questions. This place looks bleak. What is Palpatine's interest in it?
