this was my final commission of 2010, the pimp daddy of OT coolness, obi-wan kenobi!
i love this character in every period of the star wars saga, so i was psyched to have been commissioned to illustrate him.
the client asked for a straight up body shot and i chose to depict "old ben kenobi" just before the fateful duel with his former apprentice. much like the old jedi himself, i wanted to keep the pose calm, confident and understated rather than go extreme with the action.
"you can't win, darth. if you strike me down, i shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
