5 out of 5 stars.
The artwork in this was a little bit hit and miss for me There were some that I thought were really cleverly done with nods to the stories of the characters depicted or having multiple scenes in a painting that looked focused on one at first glance My favourite artworks were Regrets by Masey Easy being Green, It s Not by Peter de Seve Now My Enemy by Robert Bailey
Gorgeous book with amazing Star Wars inspired art, ranging from classic oil portraiture to collage and mixed media Some really interesting and creative looks at a galaxy far, far away My favorite pieces were a moving image of Vader dreaming of Padme and a realistic and detailed version of the battle of Hoth.
Four stars instead of five because of the naked twi leks four by my count and other assorted scantily clad ladies As a female fan, I m so tired of that aspect of SW fandom I love how all the Abrams Star Wars editions are so extremely beautiful The colors, the quality of the paper, in this particular case the art selection made by George Lucas Now I need the rest of the collection because it s totally worth it A great number of very talented artists contributed to this collection I loved seeing their various takes on the Star Wars universe I could, however, wish that Aayla Secura had gotten ONE appearance in which she wasn t lounging around naked or mostly naked.
For every Oh, that s pretty cool and inventive work, there are two From which high schooler s notebook did they tear this works Some show great imagination others aspire only to duplicate a film still on the canvas And then there are the sexy Twi leksdid I just say that If nothing else, the book would be good on your coffee table, as it offers a diverse collection of SW universe interpretations Lucas had better be flattered that so much has been made over his creation.
I think I might just have to purchase this book, or maybe even get a copy of a few of these paintings for my house The artistry and creativity found in these pages show how many dedicated artists and Star Wars nerds can show the world around them the true depth of what is seen in the galaxy far far away.
If you are a Star Wars fan, or even a Star Wars appreciator, you owe it to yourself to read and look through this book High recommend.
