Rey Wielding Anakin’s/Vader’s/Luke’s old lightsaber is cool and all, but hear me out on this...

Electrostaff

And here’s why:

  • Rey has shown great proficiency with her old staff (I don’t remember if she still has it by the end of the TFA), being able to take down several armed thugs and not even break a sweat. I’d add a GIF, but there are none of her using her staff that I can find.
  • The Electrostaff users have been known to be able to go head-to-head against Jedi and the staves can withstand saber blows
  • It would serve as a great foil to Kylo Ren’s claymore-esque Lightsaber
    • His lightsaber is unstable, is a symbol of intimidation, and he is highly aggressive in style
    • The electrostaff can serve as a support when inactive, can serve as a defibrillator(?), and supports Rey’s style of incapacitating over killing
  • The staff is currently her iconic item for marketing purposes, might as well roll with it. (C’mon marketing teams, we need more Rey stuff [and of women in general])

I know most of you are thinking, “Why the electrostaff? The lightsaber is a great weapon, iconic, and is also symbolic to the passing of the baton to the new trilogy.”

While that is all true, there is also nothing stopping Rey from modifying the Electrostaff from becoming a hybrid with the old Lightsaber. Heck, even a double sided Saberstaff (that is an actual staff, sorry Darth Maul and Imperial Inquisition) is an option. And even then the points listed above would still apply with proper modding/creative fighting style development.

“Cersei and the Dead King”
-PROCESS VIDEO HERE-

When ImagineFX Magazine approached me to create a workshop in the style of Sargent, I needed to find a perfect character to fit the luxurious style of John’s portraiture.

“How about a scene from Game of Thrones?!” I’d suggested to the editor at the magazine, it as an instant hit. On I went with the sketch, photo shoot and final painting. I hope you enjoy watching the process on YouTube!

When the oil dries up, and energy is scarce. When our phones are all out of juice and the word “e-mail” is forgotten… I’ll be a freelance Mailman - traveling the world for the wealthy who can afford to send a message.

This concept art piece was inspired by the Library of Congress, who supplies thousands of free photos without copyright restrictions. Rather than just copying the photos for practice - why not bring the challenge up a notch and make something new out of it?

Have fun!

Sorry for the delay!

Here’s the process and some close ups of a recent Digital Fine Art Commission. The project was to bring a families dream home in Italy to life. After sharing their honeymoon across Italy, they’ve decided to find a way to retire in the beautiful world of Tuscany. The client had supplied countless elements for the scene, including every single detail you see here. Doors, windows, shops with fruits, cheese and meat, the street, honeymoon book, their favorite lamps, wells, flooring, church etc. We also created a Family Crest for the front door. There was a lot to fit in!  :p 

So, until the day they can finally make the move to Italy, this imaginary world should hold them off.

The final product was printed on the highest quality Giclee Canvas at 30x40.
