Luke Skywalker Photostudy by pinkhavok Luke Skywalker Photostudy by pinkhavok
Here's another Photostudy, this time from my most favorite of the Star Wars movies "The Empire Strikes Back".

This did take a little longer than I wanted, about 2hrs and 20 mins. However, I'm really trying to learn how to nail faces and this was just one of those times that it was a little more difficult. Luke has such a recognizable face and I think sometimes just knowing that there is a self imposed time limit means that it can be a little more difficult to capture the essence of the character.

Either way this was a lot of fun and as always great practice. It's interesting too because I changing up my approach a little working more with soft brushes to have smoother blending and gradients. Not sure if I'll stick with it forever (since I do love texture brushes) but it's great fun to experiment. Also, I have to say I really love the high contrast of the movie still that I was studying from. I love cinematic lighting!

Really nice. Funny how the role that made Hamill famous wasn't even his best role. In my opinion, his best role was as the voice of the Joker.

I agree! He's always had the voice that says Joker to me :)

NAILED! IT!! :D I too love the contrast in this scene. It really lends a "duality" nature to the piece, like the light and dark sides of the Force, and in my opinion shows Luke's struggle with his own impulses.

Agreed! I love the lighting in Empire. Great double meanings and very cinematic. I wish all of the movies had this type of feel, it truly was unique to this movie.
