Luke Skywalker, LOTF by FalconFan Luke Skywalker, LOTF by FalconFan
This is a portrait of an older, wiser Luke Skywalker, in the "Legacy of the Force" era of novels. I tried to age him, by way of some creases and wrinkles and a touch of silvering at the temples--I had plenty of help with the likeness and the aging (thanks again, AG88, for all the feedback and progress checks), and I hope this works for all the Luke fans out there!

Mechanical and classic graphite pencils on Bristol board.

DAMN, that's well done.  THAT is Jedi Master Luke Skywalker.  NAILED IT.

Well, thank you kindly! I'm so glad you like it!  I kept trying to imagine what a more mature Luke might look like, and decided to try rendering him!  Thanks for the :+fav:, too!

I wouldn't mind seeing you do a picture of Ben at Luke's age.

"I wouldn't mind seeing you do a picture of Ben at Luke's age."

I haven't been drawing much in recent years, due to too much working (as it is for most people, I think)--as we go forward, I think you'll see a lot of talented artists taking on an adult Ben Skywalker, with marvelous results! Thanks for taking a look!

Wow I think you did a really good job making him look older but still look Luke-ish! Great work!

Thanks--it's always a struggle, trying to "age" the well-known characters...how much is too much? Not enough...? I'm glad it still looks like Luke to you, though--and thanks so much! :D

Wow. I want to see what you do with Anakin Solo. I always thought that whoever chose the model for the coverart was a genius...

Thanks so much! And I totally agree: the cover art paintings of Anakin Solo ARE beautiful--so much so that it's tough to locate a "model" suitable for any other type of image... There are a number of terrific drawings of him here at dA, though--a quick search will turn up dozens for you! :nod: Thanks again!

Your illustration's are absolutely fantastic! I love how real they look and the expressions you give them almost make them look like photographs. Wonderful!
