The Empire

I've always loved drawing Star Wars and have already posted some of my pictures:

Star Wars has been around a long time now - so I really don't get anything from seeing images that copy stills from the movies or don't add any originality. So I always try to paint something that you haven't seen before - and with this one I've attempted to mix the epic 'movie poster' look with the feel of a super-hero team cover.

I really went all-out with this piece and it took a very long time to complete. I painted it at a very high resolution (it's a 330mb PSD file) but I dramatically reduced it here to make it quicker to load.

Hope you like!

Love it.

Boba Fett isn't part of the Empire, he's an.... independent consultant for fugitive transfer!

Another excellent piece! Love the fading of the Vader helmet into the stars, just like the classic Empire Strikes Back promotional material.

Thanks again! Yep - I grew up with that stuff so I dare say I was influenced and inspired by it. Plus it just 'works' as a concept with the black of his helmet fading into the limitless black of space.
