This week’s challenge on OzComics was to do a cover for a Star Wars comic complete with title, publisher details and contributors. There are so many iconic scenes from the series, especially the original trilogy, but I chose the moment Luke beats Darth Vader to the ground and severs his hand.
With this image I tried to capture the power that Luke now has over Vader, but also Luke’s shock at the realisation of what has just happened, finished off with the sinister Emperor looking on.
The image has come out well. I’m especially fond of the composition. The background is a bit simplistic but it serves its purpose. The judge of the competition is a writer for Dark Horse comics called Tom Taylor. Fingers crossed he likes it. The entries are pretty strong this week. Wish me luck!
