star wars - rule 63 prequel trilogy



[on tumblr: here]

MOAR RULE 63. Featuring Jedi Knight Annika Skywalker and Senator/former King Padém Amidala (and his entourage of decoy bodyguards/footmen) following on from a previous sketch :D

This has been lying around my harddrive for way too long, but I finally got around to colouring it! (just experimenting with a bunch of different things and inspired by SW concept art books :love:) I’m so sorry for the lack of Obi-Wan in this set - there’s a second part coming, otherwise this thing would end up being 2 metres long ahaha.... (and yes I know the whole pregnancy timeline would have to be somehow changed for this genderswapped AU to work)

..... sometimes I suspect the reason I draw these AUs is so I can cover the Mustafar duel a million times in marginally different ways.

The mention of the concept art books in the artist's comments is interesting, since a number of McQuarrie's concept art sketches show the character who would eventually be Luke as female.

And, of course, Luke and Leia were created when Lucas decided to make his theft a LITTLE less blatant and split Misa Uehara's Princess into Luke and Leia and Toshiro Mifune's General into Han and Obi-Wan...

Couldn't resist a lift from Kurosawa's somewhat better-known film Yojimbo {which, itself, was a completely uncredited lift from Dashiell Hammett's hard-boiled/noir novel, Red Threads} for Ben's confrontation with the thugs at the cantina bar, though...
