Luke and Lucas by RAPHTOR Luke and Lucas by RAPHTOR
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away.....

Jedi Master Luke Skywalker wasn't so happy how his character was written in the latest Star Wars film. So he decided to go to a cantina to meet and talk to an old friend named Lucas.


After watching TLJ twice, I have to say I still like most of it. Except for several stuff:
Wasted Characters, Uselss characters, Silly scenes.

-Carrie Poppins (I love Carrie Fisher tho)
-How Luke Skywalker ended
-Boba Fett all over again (Phasma)
-Porgs (utterly useless, storywise)

At least the porgs have a fairly reasonable excuse... where they were filming is a bird sanctuary. and these damn puffins kept getting everywhere. The porgs were invented at late date so they could CGI over the puffins...and they kinda just became an in joke...

That porg :XD:

And having read some other comments, well, that Phasma :XD:

Lucas:"You wanna buy some deathsticks?"
Luke:"You don't want to sell, you know what? Sure, whatever."

To be fair, the only reason Luke was that way was because he had depression (and a pretty severe case at that). It's not like he could get any help either, poor guy. That still doesn't excuse the fact he nearly killed his nephew in his sleep though. At least the porgs were cute. Rose was okay, I'm hoping we get more character development in the new movie.

The resemblance between Luke and can definitely see the fact that Luke was, in a way, a self-insert by Lucas.  That's not a criticism of the art; it was a smart move IMO to draw that out.

Oh my God, poor porgs, being tortured, though--that breaks my heart, animal lover that I am! :(

Oddly enough, I actually suspect that offscreen, the porgs may have kept Luke from offing himself during his years of depression on Ahch-to.  Animals are good for the soul that way--they don't judge, they don't care what you've done, only how you treat them in the moment.  Personally, I know my cats helped me get through some really rough times with depression and anxiety.  (Which is among the reasons I didn't react badly to the way Luke was portrayed: Mark Hamill's mannerisms honestly shocked me with how WELL they captured a person suffering severe clinical depression...I could relate!)  For similar reasons, when I think about the shit the Resistance survivors have gone through...well, the realistic part of me that knows how much PTSD is likely running around there, is actually glad there are going to be a few semi-domesticated animals on board the Falcon.  Taking care of a creature's day-to-day needs can keep you grounded in the parts of reality that don't suck.

(I wish the CGI on the porgs had been better though: my cats and I have watched enough of Planet Earth to know their feathers should be dirtier, more ruffled, not pristine like they've been through the laundry.)

There were other scenes I didn't like...the sea cow thing, the Carrie Poppins bit (shit CGI, plus Leia had no training), lack of info provided on Snoke, and some other stuff that rankled.  Overall, I came away with a middling but ultimately OK opinion of TLJ.  I can see its problems but still enjoyed it overall.

Holy, epically wondrous! The Phenomenal Luke Skywalker and George Lucas are stunning and The Cantina Scenery looks incredible. The designs, Phasma, Boba Fett, Porg, Jedi characters, bartender, aliens, expressions, poses, interactions, dart game, board, bar, death sticks, robes, suit, armor, eyes, jacket, glasses, hair, helmet, hallway, ceiling, wings, tentacles, humor, milk, wings, clothing, action, gleam, glow, shadows, movement, flow, effects, realisticness, perspective, atmosphere, hues, textures, concept, composition, uniqueness, lighting, colors, style, and other details are also sensational. Amazingly Radical work! :iconfantasticplz:

Poor Phasma.

I love all the touches to this one - like Fett playing darts and the sea-cow nipple. :giggle: And yes, while I enjoyed TLJ (it was an amazing experience!) I agree it has its problems (namely the things you mentioned). But if the experience I get from my Star Wars watch is a good one, I can overlook the flaws.

Did Phasma OD on deathsticks?! :omg:

"Wasted characters, useless characters, silly scenes."

Well, you'd damn well better hate Return of the Jedi even more then. If not, that would be quite the double standard.

Who is the person with the red scarf in the middle of Mark and George???? I can´t figure it out...

Absolutely your opinion...

Lucas: It's amazing, really. The story I wanted to share, all the effort I put into a morality tale and having the Light win over the Dark, everything has gone back to square one.

Luke: Yeah. All the work me, Han and Leia did, all the trials we overcame to bring peace to the galaxy, has been undone. No New Republic, no new Jedi, and the Empire 2.0 now rules the galaxy. It's like we never existed.

Lucas: Well, that's not true. People still see you as a hero.

Luke: Everyone except Rian Johnson.

Lucas: Got me there...

Luke: So, George, what was your original vision for continuing the saga after we destroy the Death Star?

Lucas: It's a long story.

Luke: (A glass of blue milk in his hand) Well...I have nothing but time.

Lucas: Okay then. I'd love to. It all starts a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...

I demand satisfaction.

What do I mean by that? I don't really know yet. Hopefully I will someday.

I'm sorry George. In retrospect, your stuff wasn't so bad (except the holiday special, your going to have to live that one down on your own).
AlfDsz Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Nice. I still can't figure out who's backhead is that between Luke and George. I see he is wearing a red scarf? Is he sitting or he's just a kid? Can't figure it out. 
Veronika-Art Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2018
Me neither. It looks like a boy with big ears... he is having fun with the Porgs... 
DamienDed Featured By Owner May 23, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
For me, it is not a red scarf but the uniform of a resistance or rebel pilot.
Veronika-Art Featured By Owner May 23, 2018
We can only guess... which is a nice thing about this art...

I loved this movie and I personally thought the Crait scene with Luke was unique , but I feel like Luke's story could've been ended at least in the next movie. I'm hoping that we will see Luke fight Snoke in the after life because I am still not convinced Snoke is truly dead . Plus Snoke can come back as a force ghost since he isn't completely dark side and is not a Sith . Maybe he wasn't killed at all and that was a just a force projection , because in the Force Awakens you can see his hologram and his throne is actually different from the one we see in the last Jedi and also Snoke looks more healthy then he did in the force awakens .
Veronika-Art Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2017
I agree with most. Specially how Luke ended... I did like the Porgs... poor Porg btw :/

Just came back from the cinema and this picture totally sums up my mood. :)

Frankly, I loved the end of Luke's story in The Last Jedi. I thought that the binary sunset was a fantastic way to send off the Jedi from Tatooine, and that the Force trick he used on Kylo was something that outdid anything Yoda or Ben ever did in the series before. :D 

But still, love this picture. Luke and George, old friends able to share a drink and chat about the good old days :XD:

I liked rose I thought her character was sweet but I would have loved to have seen her relationship with her sister more maybe have her sister die and the end of the movie and have that build her character more

It's amazing how your characters look like the original ones! You must have practiced portraits a lot to reachthis level! I admire this. 
I like this scenery, I think each character matches its personnality. 
I wish Boba will miss all his shots! :3

What did you think about Snoke? He was pretty wasted potential, too.
RAPHTOR Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2017  Student General Artist
Pretty much the same with Phasma and Luke, just forgot to add him on the list.

Love this, sums it all up perfectly
Skilodracus Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2017  Student Digital Artist
I liked the movie, and I even liked what they did with Luke; its nice to see him not as the Mary Sue everyone expected. On the other hand, I agree the pacing was weird and there was a lot of weird plot holes.
Lionheartssj Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Rey has the Mary Sue role locked down hard.
FuyuStorm Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2017
Luke isn't Mary Sue in legends, just super overpowered and what's wrong with that? Just because he's overpowered doesn't mean he hasn't face powerful characters. He fails at some parts in his life, he's not perfect but he's doing the best he can to lead new Jedi order. Not to mention he had a lot of years of training to become the grand master. 
Skilodracus Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Yeah, thats what the Last Jedi was about; Luke failing and making mistakes. I have no problem with him being OP, as long as he has flaws which he did in this movie. What I find weird is that people had an issue with that.
FuyuStorm Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2018
In the empire strikes back, Luke ran from his training to recuse his friends but it was a trap setup for him and he end up losing to Darth Vader and lost his hand, Han Solo was captured, Rebels were getting screwed. The good guys didn't even get the upper hand until the very last movie. They failed a lot, everyone did. Luke Skywalker, all the Skywalker and Solo family tree, Obi Wan, Yoda, everyone has their flaws, made mistakes and failed some point in their life.

Luke lost his Uncle and Aunt, he saw his teacher get killed in front of his own eyes, he failed in the second movie (Episode 5) he lost another master and losing his father at the end. He's indeed the most powerful Jedi that ever lived but he has some flaws that he has struggled. He made a lot of mistakes, even in Legends. So he isn't what everyone think he is. Yeah in canon I like they done with Luke in their own way but that movie has a lot of flaws that most of it doesn't make sense.
Absurdpotato Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2017
I like the concept that the jedi order needs to end and that something new needs to take his place, like the scene were ben asking ray to let both sith and jedi die, let everything from the past die and start something new.

To be honest that out have been a very interesting concept to see happen if you were aware of the religion of both jedi and sith and there problems.

i was so dissapointed with this movie.
