A character realizing his fragile humanity is always a powerful moment in fiction.

Cool concept, but given the time-period, Fett should really be kitted out like this. :)

The whole thing is great but I especially like the way the light falls on Mon Mothma. On average how long did ILM pieces take, if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks! Ha, and that's the perfect quote. I'd say they were about six hours each on average.

Blasters don't kill people. DIPLOMACY kills people! Seriously though, awesome picture.
