Latest WIP phase. Oil on board, with sabre effect done in photoshop.
In a star-warsy mood, still, after seeing Episode 3 yesterday. It's not serious enough for me to go up in the loft to hunt for my old star wars figures, but it did inspire me to begin this...
Apparently (in the Star Wars universe) females adept in the dark side of the force are called Sith Witches. This one is Dartha Culdara. Luckily, Darth Vader's nuts survived his encounter with the lava river (he had fire-proof pants on), and after the loss of Padme he found solace in the arms of one of his junior office interns on the Death Star (there was a lot of heavy breathing that night ). A daughter was conceived, who was later visited by the Emperor's ghost, and instructed in the evil arts of the Sith.
The two stormtroopers here are called Ben and Jerry.
