This piece was done for a package illustration for the Star Wars miniatures line. I used acrylic for the loose underpainting washes and then used quite a bit more oil on top for this one... oil with generous amounts of painting medium to slide around a little more than I usually do. It was fun... I think I'll do it more often.

Wow, I just bought a book with your work in it and this was one of the pieces that really blew me out of the water.  The sense of depth and movement are stunning.  After seeing you had an account here, I felt obligated to express my admiration of your talent and work. Truly stunning.

Interesting! When I saw the red it attracted me. When I was Luke's face I was SURPRISED! Woah! Interesting seeing him in black. It was like seeing a ghost!

If you don't mind me asking what's the benefits of combining acrylic and oils in a painting?

He looks kind of scary. But he does look cool. Good job.

Luke looks awesome, but I think the terrain and the red planet in the background really makes it pop!

wonderful muted colors with the red circle popping out, this is a nice piece: very moody in its portrayal. It's a good way to show such a popular character from a slightly different angle.

I love the black and red armor. I would love to see more of Luke as a Jedi but more armored and hooded and stuff like the characters in the game The Old Republic some of the later progression Jedi armor in that is badass!
