obi-wan kenobi commission by strongstuff obi-wan kenobi commission by strongstuff
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."

Ok, I just love everything you do, apparently. But Obi Wan was always my favorite too.

I absolutely love it!. I like the slight angle and the decision to make the whole thing earth tones rather then the cold white and grays.

Hm, your illustration style is as amazing as usual;
still, I think his head/face expression does not quite fit the original Ben - it is rather reminding me of either Dooku, or the priest from The Fifth Element.
It lacks the wisdom and the... soft, gentle warmth the old Ben so often administers to Luke ;) Get it?

But, after all an absolutely amazing piece of art. Keep it up!
