Kenobi: SW 30th Anniversary by DarthFar Kenobi: SW 30th Anniversary by DarthFar
My own little tribute to the movie that started it all. :aww: Well, to one of my favourite characters, anyway, but what the hey.

Happy 30th Anniversary.


Star Wars property of George Lucas/Lucas Arts.


This is actually 'mixed media', but I don't see a category for traditional-digital. :shrug: It was drawn and coloured with generic colour pencil (for the textures) before being scanned and painted/shaded with Corel PhotoPaint.

Just fyi, something is up with this file. I can't see it in small or large view and when I tried to download it I got a message saying this page does not exist. :confused:

I love this picture, I want it in your gallery. :sniff:

Occasionally, it happens. You go to someone's gallery, click on a thumbnail... and nothing shows up. Nothing I can do about it. :(

But you know something? I just opened this page... and *I* can see Obi-Wan. ;)

Great stuff! Dead-on likeness of him, carrying so much of his personality in the pic. And the whole thing has a great weathered look that suits him, and suits the OT-feel.
Lucas had to film at least fifteen minutes of Kenobi to get the amount of character you've packed into one picture...and that's even with Lucas utilising the acting talents of Alec Guinness. Amazing job you've done. :+fav: :D

Awesome...

Good old Alec Guiness. The original Triology will always be the best! The new three are good as films, but are lacking slighty as STAR WARS films, I think.

DarthFar Featured By Owner May 27, 2007
Thanks!

And yeah, I feel the same way. I guess it's because the 'first' movie (A New Hope) established this old-fashioned slightly gritty space-western feel, and that carried through the next two pretty well (they were believable as 'stories about civilisations more developed than our own, that happened a long time ago';), but the prequels feel utterly 'far into the future science-fiction-y'.
