Little Luke's Destiny - STAR WARS Fan Art
Check out this adorably cool piece of Star Wars fan art created by Nick Scurfield who plans on doing a series of them. This first piece called "Destiny," and it features a little Luke Skywalker joyfully playing with his X-wing toy. Here's what the artist had to say about the illustration on his blog,
...this image is the first in a series of pictures depicting key characters from the series as 'younglings', engaging in acts that reference key moments from their future. Despite being completed before Disney took over the Galaxy, the style isn't out of place with their mantra, representing the childish outlook of the subject whilst drawing on and exaggerating the colour palette of the films worlds. I also liked the idea of Luke playing with his toy Star fighter just like many of us did in our youth.
The 'wide-screen' format gave the image a more cinematic quality whilst making the colours seem more vibrant and the text added to generate a more positive, motivational and life affirming blah blah blah blah blah...
I'm looking forward to seeing what he has planned for the rest of the series!
