This is a gallery of excellent work from Christian Waggoner, which is a series of photorealistic painting depicting various characters in the Star Wars universe. The man is a professional painter (clearly) who turned from typical art to Star Wars in 2007. I’ve posted his takes on Greedo, Vader and a Stormtrooper after the jump, and be sure to look for the reflections.
“I love reflections,” he says. “I mean, if you crop one of my paintings, it can be abstract, it can be surreal, it’s a play of light, a play of values, how things get distorted. You can just play around with so much. I’m now trying to take the art to see more hidden things in the reflections that people will catch.” – Chris Waggoner
