YAY!!!
I finally finished this one :'D

Hahah, after all those Anakin's, I just thought I'd give mah dear Luke boy some love :D
And what background could suit them more than the epic Tatooine sunset shown in Episode IV? <3

Haha, actually, there's more to this pic...and if you know me, you also know what's coming- exactly!! HELL LONG DESCRIPTION/RANT AHEAD. Read to your own risk (or maybe don't read it at all).

Ok, so, since I came back into the Star Wars fandom I've talked with quite a lot people who claim to hate the New Trilogy, that "it sucks", that "the characters are bad" and so on. While I completely disagree with that, because both trilogies have their flaws and their own good things, and it's pretty much senseless to compare them since they are just so different (and if you really hate the NT you can just ignore it! The Classic can stand on their own after all) I have to admit that sometimes, during this kind of conversations, I have had these INSANE THOUGHTS like "Oh God, enough with this Classic Trilogy!!". Then, every time I realized what I was thinking, regained reason and I was like "What the hell am I thinking?? I LOVE the Classic Trilogy so much D:" and so I felt like clarifying something by drawing this thing...

Point is, I just hate it so much when people came to me just to insult the New Trilogy and say that I shouldn't like it. WTF? Everyone has the right to like what they like. In my case, the NT, Episode III in particular, has a very personal meaning to me. People can say it's the worst movie ever, and I will still LOVE every.single.second of it. And find the good in it.

Yeah, mostly when people insult the NT I feel like they're attacking Episode III, so I feel insulted as well...xD sigh! Ok it's stupid, but that movie means a lot to me...

Don't get me wrong: of course it's good to share opinions and talk, but some people with whom I talked (not here on dA yet though) are just really disrespectful of others and keep insulting like their opinion was God's word or something ._.'

My point is: only because you dislike the NT, or don't see the good in it, be it Episode I, II or III (like Obi-Wan couldn't see the good in Vader anymore, unlike Luke : D Oh ok I'll shut up now) doesn't mean that there isn't any, or that other people can't like those movies for their own tastes or simply for personal reasons, like having watched them in a particular period of their life (like happened to me) or just because they have different thoughts from yours... for example, let's take the most hated: in Episode I there may be a lot of bad things/script/whatever you want, but personally I love Qui-Gon's character, and how insecure Obi-Wan seems as a young padawan, and the final duel with Darth Maul. So what? For these reasons, I like Episode I (since I was 7 lol) and I can't really change that.

I really can understand where people who hate the NT come from though (and I never claimed one trilogy is better than the other) ; I know the feeling of waiting for something so much, hoping it will be cool and awesome and then feel disappointed, because it happened to me with other stuff. (as for SW, I watched the New before the Classic so...xD) But that doesn't mean they have to insult people who like all the six movies or make them feel like they are inferior or something...haha! XD Personal taste is personal taste lol.

Anyway, there are also people that love the Classic Trilogy more but still respect the New, and those are the guys with which is good talking and sharing opinions. But I guess this works with everything and every subject, not only SW. Nobody likes to talk with those know-it-all that only want to be right and feel superior to others. ._.

Sorry again for the long talk! I just wanted to make things clear on my side 'cause I had this on my stomach and I don't wanna fight over something I love so much...I just think everyone should talk respecting each other's opinions!

PEACE!!!! :D

Anyway to cut it short....I LOVE THE WHOLE STAR WARS SAGA AND NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE THAT! :D
And it was about time I'd drew these two together!!! I think I'm starting to see Luke's character under a new light, and I can't wait until I get the chance to re-watch the oldies 8D

I really enjoyed drawing this, even though it's a hard period for me and everything, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did drawing it :D

Now it's better that I go to bed because it's really late!

PS: yep, that awful round thing behind Anakin is Owen and Beru's house xD

This is a splendid idea for a time-travel story where Anakin and Luke actually meet face to face.  Of course, they cannot know who they really are to each other or it would change their personal histories as well as the destiny of the Jedi Order and that of the Lucasverse. :)

Question: Why do they have the same exact lightsaber? Shouldn't you have given Luke the green one?

I think what Renny08 is saying here is that because they were father and son, it would have been Anakin who gave his lightsaber to Luke in a normal Jedi family setting.  That is, if there ever was such a thing as a normal Jedi family setting! :D

Or, as Obi-Wan put it: "Oh Force, now there are two of them!"

What if these are the ponderings of Darth Vader about if all the garbage with the end of the clone wars didn't happen?

I love episode III! How he became Darth Vader is sooo sad, him trying to save his wife because he lost his mother. his lust for more power and the idea of losing Padme drove him over the edge.

Well, the reason Anakin became Darth Vader was because of his fatal flaw: anger. It consumed him and he became Darth Vader.

Father and son bonding! :D I think that Anakin would train Luke if he did not turn to the Dark Side. He is his father, after all. You did a fine job on this picture! :D

Great drawing and good debate on the fan base of SW. 'To each his own,' I say. I love all the movies, and the huge fan-base it has created. Sure, there are flaws in the FB and the movies, but nothing is perfect. 
Anyway, love the drawing, you do great work. Keep being awesome. :D
