The new hope was way better. This one isn't that interesting.

huh I had assumed it was Luke before. Makes me like the piece a bit more. Not that I disliked it before. Bottom + Emperor are great.

I see both Luke and Vader in that. Looks a bit like Lukes hair.

Like I mentioned last year, this is the only commission I've ever done (well, now second), and it's been a pretty cool process. Kilian is really great to work with and super nice. Hopefully, next summer we will complete the trilogy.

I mainly just see the back of Vader's helmet and his cape. But considering how the cave scene plays out *shrugs*

Luke is already on the side with Yoda , though...so thinking Vader 8)

I'm torn myself on which one I like better. What I like the most about Empire is that Kilian designed something that wasn't obvious to me. It's more bleak and ominous, which I really liked since I felt that fit with the film.

Here are a few close up shots that Kilian was kind enough to shoot over:

Man those details of Vader in the cave and Luke and Yoda are perfect, really cool

These look great together. I can see why some people think ESB isn't as dynamic as ANH, but as a duo they're very strong. Now I can't wait to see trilogy completed.

I wish this was open to the public. Can they not add people in for the final film?

I agree, can both Cat and myself be added to this illustrious group? ;-) Just for the final film.
