Sorry, I guess I should have included sarcasm tags...

I'll try for a variant since I still haven't decided exactly which I want and I'm curious to see how muted the greens are. Oh, the problems I face.

i think you're right about the previews looking better right now on our screens with the lightsabers crossing the borders, but I think that once each piece is framed it'll look much better with the light saber not crossing the molding ....

I don't really care for the key image of Luke taken right off the original Jedi poster, with the looming Vader also very similar.

Is there really anything that makes it unique to the artist like the takes by Stout or Moss?

Well, it does have evvverything. And the colors and "grain" make it unique to Gabz.
Not really. There are plenty of grainy/tracer artists these days. And no one cares about the lifted image? At least Manev reworked the Punisher into a new character.

I don't think lifted image/tracing is unique to this one piece, look at his Mulholland or some other posters from him.
