I've been working on this one for a while now - off and on in any free moment I could find.

Gotta love the classic Star Wars trilogy. :D

Hey ApniceMonkey

My name is Connor Heggie and I am the Admin to the Facebook Campaign Who Else Wants Star Wars Battlefront III ? this Campaign is to show that there is still demand for a 3rd game. I messaging you and several other artist on this site because your artwork is great and fits with the tone of for a grittier and mature Star Wars game for Battlefront III.

So I would like to ask for permission to use this picture, for Who Else Wants Star Wars Battlefront III ? in Battlefront Art/Inspirations. I shall link it to this site so people can see your other work and you will be thanked as well.

Sure, that's fine Connor and I appreciate you asking first.

To repay the favor, I'll give you a little info: A good friend of mine works at Lucasarts and Battlefront 3 is something many on the team have wanted to do for a long time with little success. I was told earlier this year that they are working on 2 separate Star Wars games - one that I was given information turned out to be 1313 and the other which hasn't been announced yet will be something more like Battlefront (even though it most likely won't be called Battlefront). :)

I really like this picture because it looks unique. It feels like a big smudge. It looks like it was painted slowly but surely, and I think that holds a unique quality.

Very, very good. And I love the title - very fitting.

The panoramic view, with the universe and planet in the background, is very powerful, and the dark form of Darth Vader, with the light just barely touching his left side is wonderful.

:iconapneicmonkey:
ApneicMonkey Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks. :) I chose it because it means rebirth - Anakin Skywalker died and was born to the Dark Side of the Force as Darth Vader. ;)
