Star Wars - A Skywalker's Life by Renny08 Star Wars - A Skywalker's Life by Renny08
YES!! I did it! I finally drew something Star Wars related! :D

Well, uh, the title says pretty much everything, but this strip has more of a personal meaning to me haha. x)
I've had it in my brain for several months now and it's sole purpose is basically venting, but still...

You know that feeling you have when you would like to concentrate on yourself, on solving your problems, and other people just keep on asking you to do stuff for them, mostly work or things that only increase your stress and you basically have no choice but doing all of that they ask you because that's important stuff and it therefore it should come before anything else? YES.

And that's basically how Anakin feels in Episode III (and there's a line in the Matthew Stover's novelization that actually says that Anakin would like to be just left alone for a hour or two x) ), and the poor guy just can't catch a break.

Of course I decided to go humor about that :iconimhappyplz: but I really do feel like Anakin most of the time! :XD:
Another reason why he's my favorite character, haha. He's so stressed x)

I hope you like the... uh, let's call it "coloring style" x) I decided to go fast and rough because I didn't see any point in coloring this strip the way I usually do, not being any kind of set atmosphere or backgrounds :) overall I'm not disliking it that much, at least, I think it fits the mood, what do you think?

Now I gotta race to bed because it's very late and tomorrow academy and trains with snow delays wait for me. .__.
If I survive, I will catch you later haha!

Hope you enjoy!! :D
May the Force be with you!

You could meme this and add the "DIRECTED BY GEORGE LUCAS" at the end. Maybe if the Jedi had given him a day off, he wouldn't have messed up the galaxy xP

Its just like being that one hard worker in a fast food restaurant...

I hate to do this but...

Its sad, but if Lucas had focused on this in Episode III, a man so overwhelmed with juggling so much and everyone relying on him because 'he is the big hero' and he snaps because everything he is trying to prevent comes crashing down, I feel it would have been better recived

I still love Episode III though

If you keep in mind that he probably had Borderline Personality Disorder, it makes a lot more sense. People like to make fun of Anakin and how whiney he is but he was probably had some pretty severe mental problems combined with massive amounts of stress, a psychopath manipulating him and a Jedi Order who weren't exactly helpful. Granted, I don't think Lucas did the best job portraying it, but still.

I love the look on every one's face on the last panel. The look so derpy! XD

The last panel would have changed the course of Anakins path. He tells runs to a R&R for a month and returns sheepishly when Padmes about to give birth.

I love this! You are completely right! I know how he feels sometimes. Especially because he is being forced to grow up when he is just an unstable teenager
rababco Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Actually, I think he was more in his early twenties by Episode III but he was definitely mentally unstable (it's thought he had Borderline Personality Disorder, which explains a lot actually) and he was under massive amounts of stress and being manipulated by a psychopath; he bound to snap at some point.

I just watched the 3rd movie and it's really painful, mostly because you know Anakin would never have done what he did normally. It's also hard to watch how the other Jedi don't seem to understand or emphasize with him, especially Yoda (which could be because he's not human so he doesn't understand what it's like to be human, kind of like how Spock has trouble understanding human emotions because he's part Vulcan.) Something that's always bothered me was that Jedis aren't really supposed to have emotions, at least negative ones, which might work for other Jedi but not for Anakin. It's kind of funny how Anakin is probably the most human character in Star Wars (except maybe his son Luke) but he supposed to be the villain. Anakin may have had Borderline Personality Disorder, which makes a lot of sense (I looked it up and it sounds so much like him it's scary…, under films and television his name is even mentioned) so he may have very well had a mental disorder and needed help. Palpatine didn't keep his promise and help Anakin keep his wife alive (what a lying psychopath.) It's especially interesting that even at end right before she died, Padme said that she knew there was still good in him (talk about unconditional love, seriously she's amazing), which explains where Luke got it from.

suddenly it's all starting to make sense... Cause in the movie I was all confused- like, what! now he's evil? how'd that happen?
Sharpman01 Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Insecurity, constant conflicting concerns...yeah...that does make sense.
AsjJohnson Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
when you put it that way, no wonder quite a few people think it's the Jedi's fault he turned. Poor Anakin. ^_^"
Maybe if he'd went out and said that in the movie, he would've had time to sort through things. ...or be locked up. But that would also give him time to sort through things.
I think the coloring looks nice. It's messy like Anakin's thoughts.
rababco Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Unfourtantly, he wasn't really supposed to have emotions like anger or fear, which always bothered me because part of being human is having these emotions. It's important to teach someone how to control these emotions and not to let it consume them, especially someone as powerful as Anakin but someone shouldn't be taught to be ashamed of these emotions or pretend not to have them. Part of why loved Padme so much was because she was the only person he could share his emotions with and was understanding and nonjudgemental. This is probably why Luke was finally able to lead his father to the light and he ended up sacrificing his life for him because Luke was the first person since Padme who truly loved him unconditionally and still saw good in him. Palpatine's probably the most at fault considering he was the one who deceived and manipulated Anakin (he kind of reminds me of Satan actually); I don't think Anakin would've made the decisions he had if weren't for him.
Renny08 Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2015
Yeah, sure it wasn't only Jedi's fault, Ani was responsible for his choice and everything, but he probably could have used a break in the middle of Ep III, haha!
I guess this little comic was more of a vent of mine, though! :D
And thank you!! :D
