I began this piece in the spring of 2005. Despite my overall lukewarm feelings towards the first two movies of this series, I was excited for the third film, Revenge of the Sith. The hype was growing for it and I had wanted to do a massive Star Wars project for years. I figured it was the perfect time now that the last of these six movies was finally coming out.
Then... the movie came out. I was in the middle of this piece with the intention of doing a second piece dedicated to the original trilogy. But, once I saw the movie-- I put this project aside. I liked what I had done so far, but the actual movie didn't quite inspire me to finish it at that point. A year passed with this project still in the pencil sketch phase. I figured I should finally finish it for the sake of also doing a piece for the original trilogy. So, in the middle of Summer 2006, these two pieces were finally finished and my journey to that galaxy far, far away had, at last, come to an end. Created with water colors and colored pencils on illustration board. Check out this and more right HERE >> [link]
