Luke Skywalker - Jedi by MarkRaats Luke Skywalker - Jedi by MarkRaats
I suspect that the fans are going to lynch me for this but I always wondered why Luke Skywalker had to look like a Obi-wan clone in TFA - a crazy old man. Why could he not have looked like a bad-ass Jedi instead?

Luke Skywalker - Jedi
Original art available this weekend at Supanova in Brisbane

Something about the lines on his face here makes me think of Sean Connery. (To be fair, Sean Connery as a Jedi would also be really cool)

Asome! He did look like a bad ass Jedi, he was one! At least in the incredibly better storyline of the expanded universe, where he didn't collapse and vanish because ONE student turned to the dark side. Spoiler alert..... He lived to see his wife killed by his nephew, and even that didn't make him waver in his mission to train a great new COUPLE of generations of Jedi.
This is really how I pictured him kicking Yuzzang-Vong ass!

(PS not that I didn't enjoy The Force Awakens, but 20 years of reading and 200+ novels later, I'll always be an expanded universe fan first).

Who knows, he might get a hair cut and new wardrobe once they get him off that island.

Yes, sir, that's what imaginative art is about and no photoshoppery can ever achieve. Great work!

The only thing that could make him look more badass would be a facial scar or make him sneer ala king leonidas.

Now that's hardcore.
It's like a continuation of what he looked like in Return of the Jedi.
Have you thought about doing a Rogue One Concept poster?
Maybe it would catch the eye of Disney and they would hire you to do the next films?

I love it! Looks like ROTJ Luke but older.

Force Awakens did not want to do anything too new or creative. Loved the movie, but it was not as creative or imaginative as the Lucas years.
