Old Friends, Long Gone by OtisFrampton Old Friends, Long Gone by OtisFrampton
This is a digital commission featuring an old Jedi, two dead Jedi, a wannabe Jedi and a droid. True, this image may make little sense when it comes to canon. But, well...that's Star Wars for you.

This piece was drawn and colored in Photoshop CS4 using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX.

You can watch a recording of me working on (some of) this piece on my Ustream channel here:

Very emotional, and I think Yoda probably was thinking of his old friends when he trained Luke :)

Screw canon, this is an awesome picture. Great job. And who are we to say Yoda wasn't thinking about them when he was teaching Luke?

Despite the ties to the newer movies, this really makes me feel the sentimental emotions of the original films, and I love feeling that.

"The future, the past, old friends long gone…"

You've actually captured all three: R2 is the past, Luke is the future, and of course the force ghosts are the old friends long gone. I might be stretching a bit here. ;)
