Star Wars Moment 1 by VegasMike Star Wars Moment 1 by VegasMike
This image is my submission for the ILM Art Department Star Wars Challenge. The object was to create a new story moment using the original designs from Star Wars IV-VI. My new story moment was: Luke has joined his father with the dark side. The last hope for the galaxy now lies with Leia Skywalker. Obi Wan comes to her in a force vision telling her to go to Dagobah and train with Yoda to become a jedi. She is a quick learner and soon becomes strong with the force, even stronger than her brother. Luke and Vader go to Dagobah to force her to join the dark side

It's the only logical conclusion. Vader said that Luke's power could destroy the Emperor. Had he been properly trained to use and resist Dark Side powers, Luke would have killed the Emperor in the time it takes for Jabba the Hutt to shit himself.

I'm not going to lie, it would be cool to see something like that happen in a special or something. I was always curious if Luke and Vader would be a dynamic duo of the dark side.

This image inspired an entire Star Wars AU in my mind. I've taken that AU to a place I like, and I'm planning an RPG campaign using the Force and Destiny RPG by Fantasy Flight Games. The plan is to turn this game into an Actual Play podcast.

Your image inspired the entire idea. I'd love to give you credit, either using your Deviantart handle or your real name, whichever you prefer. Feel free to contact me. I will provide links when the episodes begin to release in a few months.

Very cool concept, did an extremely good job capturing their faces.
however i hate to point out that if this is how the story went Luke would not have lost his hand.

This is the dark, warped kind of Star Wars story that should have happened. Instead of a trilogy it could have been five or six films of the original characters; depicting Luke's fall and seduction to the dark side at Vader's side, leaving Leia as the final hope and guardian of the light side. It could show both redemptions of Vader and Luke but perhaps make a bitter-sweet ending. It would make a better story than the good vs evil plot and would show a more greyed aspect of both sides of the force and blur the lines of supposed good and evil characters.
This art is amazing; it is done in a eerie and bitter sense showing the fracture between parent and child, brother and sister. It inspires a lot of thought about what could have been had Luke felt drawn to Vader and the need to be reunited with his father, subsequently causing him to follow in his father's footsteps. This is just...great. Bloody well done. :D
