, Matthew Stover, 2005
EDIT: Check out the awesome fanfiction that
wrote inspired by this drawing! [link]
Hey there guys!
It looks like this is my first submission of the new year, and yeah, it's quite depressing...
Actually, it's describing a bit how I feel lately
drawings like this help me give a little vent to my emotions haha!
The new year didn't begin very nicely for me, I won't go into details or anything also because some would be probably considering me kinda weird... I'll just say, the title I gave this deviation is a "nice" reminder not only for Anakin, but for me as well...
Speaking about the piece itself, I drew it with a 4B in my sketchbook, that's why it looks so messy and that's how I wanted for it to be!
The overall look refers to the description that Matthew Stover gives about Anakin's heart in the novel adaptation of Revenge Of The Sith: There was a thermonuclear furnace where his heart should be, and it was burning through the firewalls of his Jedi training.
He held the Force in the clench of a white-hot fist.
He was half Sith already, and he didn't even know it.
The "dragon" thing on the line I mentioned at the beginning refers to Anakin's fear; in the book it is the symbol of the fear in his heart and he can sense it very much...
I hope that with this drawing I have succeeded in representing Anakin's struggle against his fear, and how it is burdening him...
...if you haven't read the book though, I strongly recommend you do, it's really awesome and very well written. Really gives more insight into the characters and the story in Episode III.
Whoooops.... long description is long!
Hope you like this one, anyway!
PS: sorry for not replying very fast to comments. I have so much work to do lately I don't even know how I will be able to get everything done in time... but if I do, most likely good things will happen. At least I hope so.
PPS: yeah, the return of Anakin's scars on his left cheek!!! XD Haha, when I can't draw the one on his eye, I just turn to them shamelessly... x)
