star wars - the boy with the furnace heart by shorelle star wars - the boy with the furnace heart by shorelle
I was wandering under black skies,
Clutching at what is mine
No control, left to lose
...
Bridges I've been dreaming are coming down
They're changing my future
Visions I have buried underground
Return us our futures

- "Crush" by Pendulum

=====

Anakin Skywalker from Star Wars (sliding into the Dark Side here...), with another quote from the ROTS novelisation that seemed really metaphorical and foreshadowing - the full line is from Count Dooku's inner monologue ("There was a thermonuclear furnace where his heart should be, and it was burning through the firewalls of his Jedi training. He held the Force in the clench of a white-hot fist. He was half Sith already, and he didn't even know it.") idk, I just really liked it!

The concept looked a lot better in my head before I actually started drawing... sigh... =_= but also experimenting with some custom Painter brushes (this Zen Watercolour set, it's really awesome!), no textures were used this time to make the background/textured effect! :D

And a lot of Pendulum songs fit Anakin pretty well, ahaha... <falls into lava pit of feelings AGAIN> :stare:

This piece is absolutely breathing. It captures what Anakin becomes perfectly, and your placement of the quote is absolutely genius. Honestly, this particular art work helped me through my senior essay I wrote about Episode III. The power behind his duel with Dooku is more than physical, and I felt that you've truly captured the aspect of the duel the audience doesn't see. Thank you so much for this masterpiece.

No no it's fine :) I have now included credits in the discription and I was using a different picture until I saw your reply this morning (couldn't send anything back sadly because of sudden los of internet conection). I would love if you listened to it and if you have any tips on how to improve it I would very much like to hear it. I have been struggling a bit since I had an idea that didn't exactly turn out as I hoped. I'll leave a link below and thank you for the allowance :)

You should not think of that machine as your father. When I saw what have become of him, I tried to dissuade him, to draw him back from the Dark Side. We fought...your father fell into a molten pit. When your father clawed his way out of that fiery pool, the change had burned into him forever-he was Darth Vader, without a trace of Anakin Skywalker. Irredeemably dark. Scarred. Kept alive only by machinery and his own dark will...
