it's calling to you... by shorelle it's calling to you... by shorelle

“It’s calling to you…”

a little sketch of young Ben Solo, because he had to have found his grandpa’s helmet at some point… did Snoke suggest a roadtrip to Endor?? (it sounded like he’d been having these dark side visions for a while, so maybe he became obsessed with Vader’s legacy when he found the helmet as a kid… or maybe finding it just made things worse -_-)

I haven't gotten to see the newest movie yet but this seems very believable. It had to be weird for his parents and uncle to tell him about his grandfather, who had such a range of heroism and villainy in his career.

This is a bit of a spoiler but, they never really had a chance. Snoke had already begun to poison his mind.

this reminds me of the scene in attack of the clones when boba rests his head against jango's helmet. they both have this "i will finish what you started" moment. awesome imagery!

I love this pic! They've said that Han and Leia would take regular trips to Endor. Young Ben may have found Vader's melted helmet during one of those.

Awww, Ben...he'd probably smack me if I tried to give him a hug...even if I told him he could check my mind and I'd LET him do it, he might STILL smack me instead.

Since I saw on your other art that you like songs for characters and stuff, I have one that may fit Kylo (I don't want him to die!), and the conflicting calls he feels.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJ6nUK…

You're welcome! Cool that you're a fan of Red! Their most recent album SERIOUSLY exceeded expectations for me and I consider it their best. If we get a happy ending for Kylo, I recommend another track from that album, "The Ever."

NO BEN DONT DO IT!

//cries//  no! BENNY! do not turn to the dark side!!
//hysterical crying  and hyperventilating//
nonononononono

(and seriously dude, even Darth Vader, the one who owned the mask In the first place, would tell you its a bad idea)

btw, this is an outstanding picture you've made here! very beautiful! and very sad.

I can literally feel raw uncertainty and so much mixed emotion coming through this picture. That's why I love your art--you seem to draw by the philosophy "a picture is worth a thousand words". Or a thousand emotions.

this almost makes we want to work on a kylo ren picture i was going to draw for your birthday now i feel bad and i'm going to draw it sometime

you i've always wondered how did Ben or Kylo Ren get Darth Vader's burnt helmet? did he go to Endor and dig through the ashes of his grandfather's remains?
Reply
:iconshorelle:
shorelle Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I wondered this too when I saw it! *Someone* must have gotten it off Endor, so either he went on a pilgrimage there under Snoke's instructions/suggestions, or researched it himself later, or maybe the First Order got it first and Snoke gave it to him... hopefully more will be followed up about this in the next movie ;)

I really like how you did the smoke in the background, and I agree with one of the other commenters; I like the fact that you gave him lighter clothing. It is as if to suggest his innocence upon discovering the helmet and the story behind it.

I thought the same! I love the die of Fanboy kylo for humor, but after seeing what the Lightsaber did to Rey it's not unlikely that something similar happened to Kylo. (or maybe Snoke just manipulated it into him. At least he CLEARLY thinks that helmet has some connection the the force or his grandfathers  ghost)

shorelle Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ahh, I'm glad I'm not the only one! He definitely had some sort of bizarre connection to the helmet (and with the whole "show me again the power of the Dark Side", I assume it had shown him things before? but how could the helmet do that.... AHH MYSTERIES) and I really want to know what's going on *waits anxiously for Episode 8*
